EU To Restrict MP3 players' Max Volume





Creative and all other MP3 manufacturers could be asked to display labels warning them that listening to loud music could damage their hearing.

This is because portable players are popular with many young people and currently personal music players are allowed to reach 100 decibels. But with “in-ear” headphones the actual sound at the eardrum can reach 120dB.

Meglena Kuneva, the EU Consumer Affairs Commissioner, said: “I am concerned that so many young people, in particular, who are frequent users of personal music players and mobile phones at high acoustic levels, may be unknowingly damaging their hearing irrevocably.

The EU is expected to recommend a reduction in the maximum volume of mp3 players.
