Save Your “Miami” Ears from Future Hearing Problems
New EU PMP ruling… Could an American Version be On Its Way?
Thanks to a new European Union ruling, any Personal Music Player (PMP) sold in Europe will need to have a lower default volume level to avoid ear damage. These “safe exposure” levels will be on all new MP3 players, including Apple’s iPod, although users will be able to override the settings if they choose.
The ruling also calls for more conspicuous information on the dangers of hearing loss caused by loud earphones to be included on PMP packaging. According to research from the EU, listening to high-level music for one hour per day for five years could lead to permanent hearing loss, and thanks to the popularity of the iPod this decade, things could get really bad for the ears of people worldwide. One must wonder if the US will be the next major country to introduce such a measure.
