Ipods are a wonderful invention. Being able to download endless tracks of music from the internet and listen to it as we go about out daily lives is great. I own an Ipod myself and get endless hours of pleasure from it and sometimes wonder how I ever managed without it. However like most things there is a downside. A Manchester professor and hearing expert has warned that millions of Ipod users risk permanent damage to their eardrums and deafness by having the volume turned up too loud. The main problem is that most users don’t realise the damage they are doing to their hearing and It’s all too easy to have the volume turned up too high as we try to drown out background noise. The professor has warned that unless we listen responsibly at safe volume levels, we risk inflicting permanent damage to our hearing. So if you’re an Ipod user, for the sake of your poor ears, turn the volume down!
