Ive been using a cheap set of headphones for about two years. Until now Ive been extremely satisfied and tell everyone what a great deal they were.
I recently noticed, however, that the highest volume setting on my ipod isnt as loud as before. After some reminiscing, I realized that over the life of my headphones the highest volume setting had gone from ear-piercing to loud to not quite loud enough. This isn’t a problem with my ipod, which can still tear up some eardrums through speakers.
So, do headphones gradually lose their volume capacity?
