Listening To Mp3's Increase Chance Of Hearing Loss By 30%
Posted 6/10/08
On the news today, they have finally declared that listening to Mp3's through your earphone can decrease your hearing for 30%. This may be permanent.
Of course, some weirdo people listen to their iPod's or something with the decibels matching a jet plane.
Post your thoughts:

Really? Oh dear then....

Yeah, I've heard that. I'm not using earphones much so it's not a problem for me.
It may serve as a warning to those who listen on their Music Players at full blast on volume.
