More than two-thirds of young people who regularly use MP3 players face premature hearing damage because the volume is too high, a charity warns.
I think I'm guilty of this. I've started putting the volume down on my iPod recently.. I don't wana go deaf :(

Rest of you do the same ok! I need you all to be able to still hear asian mix radio in your spare time :)

tut tut tut Miss S... You should know better, set an example for other members and refrain from using ' text talk' which is rule number 8

hehe got you... I've been wanting to do that for ages and I finally got the chance :D :D

Noorie you have a sharp eye :D

Please use your sharp eye to take a look at other posts which are allowed through. You'll notice there are many colloquial words which are still accepted. For example, sparky likes to use "2" every so often instead of "to", but he doesn't exclusively use "text talk" in the whole of his post.

Get it?

Now you're breaking rules yourself by not sticking to the topic! So stick to the topic :)

Thanks!

Yes i think putting the volume down is a better option.. So just asking is it more dangerous to health to listen to music frequently.. or at a loud volume? :shock:

Because you would be unaware of your surroundings which could be deemed unsafe. People have been run over before cos they were listening to their iPod and couldn't hear the car that was about to run you over. You'd think you rely on looking before crossing, but we do depend on hearing too!

yeah that's true
plus, say if you was walking down some road listening to your mp3 full blast theres more chance of you getting attacked or about to because you wouldn't know what's going on around you:shock:

i found a good article on this topic.....read it when you have time :P
