If people can hear your IEMs there's a problem, I'd wager. Especially if it's everyone.

I've seen and spoke to a man with some shure se215's on. He mentioned loving the sound and saying that those were the best in ears he's ever had.

Oh god, I had Nutella once (awesome stuff, but that's how I found out I was allergic to hazelnuts).

 

On another note, among the sea of beats and ibuds I saw an Asian guy with what looked to be M-Audio Q40's with orange innards.

Yea... if people complain about your IEM's are too loud, might be something wrong. 

post #10900 of 11280
Yeah that's worrisome. Even on the super rare occasion that I use my open-back K701 on the bus, the noise leakage is pretty minimal when it comes to a stop.

Oh, I worded that really poorly.

 

What I meant was, usually in class I listen to music with just one iem in (in case if i need to hear the teacher say anything) so the other bud is just playing around, and some of my friends will tease me about my music because they can hear it from the bud out of my ear.

 

I just wanted to know if there was some kinda chart or program or something, that tells you appropriate listening levels

Oh hey you're a fellow Seattle-ite! Are you planning to go to the Bottlehead meet? smily_headphones1.gif


To answer your question, yes there are charts out there.

You can approximate the volume you're listening to with a decibel meter. If you use iOS, 10th Decibel works okay.

Yep! That app is pretty accurate but not the most accurate and reliable as sometimes, I could tell it is overestimating the decibel while sometime the opposite. Just point the phone mic (at the bottom) to the earphone to measure it xD try keeping it around 60-70dB IMO

Okay, thanks! I'll keep those charts in mind c:

 

I live in Sammamish, so kinda close to seattle... but not actually close to seattle... if that makes sense...

Maybe next time if i have a car :bigsmile_face: It sounds like fun!   pun intended

So, I'm listening at maybe 60dB? I usually have my iPhone sitting at just behind the pause button on the slider. (Using M-80s)
