For longer-term listening (30+ min), I try to set it to where the music sounds just a little too soft. Anything louder and I start to get headaches, probably due to the headphone non-crossfeed effect. If you find yourself getting woozy after a while of listening, or find yourself unable to listen to headphones for more than 30 minutes, you probably want to turn the volume down. For short-term listening I turn it to where I can hear the full beauty of my system's sound.
