Headphones, Earbuds and hearing loss.

Which do you go for? For me I use Sennheiser PX 100’s and have done for a while. They are possibly the best set of headphones I’ve ever used, and it turns out I’m not the only one who think that as this review shows.

But recently I’ve heard a lot about how using earbuds and phones can damage your hearing, like this BBC article. It does bother me. So what’s the best way to protect your hearing whilst being able to use phones or earbuds when you need to? I don’t know. In the article from the BBC they suggest that if someone can hear your headphones from a metre away then they are too loud, but when I tried that the volume had to be really quiet.

So what’s the answer? Any thoughts?
