its true what you say,i may well not be gettin 90db, but did you know that an unrestricted ipod can indeed reach levels of 115db. which makes me wonder...if im playin the ipod full out why are they so quiet, yet rated 90db earphones.
i mean my favourite se530 are rated at 119db/mw and at full volume they are staggering, but these 90db heap of rubbish are sooo sooo much quieter, and im just stunned because if they are reaching 90db and its that quiet its fairly worrying
