iPods, hearing loss, and useless studies
I’m going to bang my head against my computer desk until it bleeds. Is this potentially harmful? Gee, I don’t know…no study has been released on the topic yet.
Fortunately for iPod users concerned about their hearing (note to iPod addicts: I said FORTUNATELY FOR iPOD USERS CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR HEARING), there is a brandy-new study just making the headlines about the effects of iPods, loud volume settings, and hearing loss.
No other than WebMD reports the study’s shocking findings , which conclude not only that cranked iPods can, indeed, damage hearing ( who knew?...get it? Who knew?), but also the following absolutely shocking, must-have-needed-a-study-to-figure-this-out finding:
The key finding: The higher the volume, the more you should limit your listening time, with the recommended limits varying somewhat depending on the type of headphones you’re using.
Next they’ll publish a study that says driving nails into your eyes could be damaging to your sight.
