I was wondering if high volumes in IEMs are as harmful to a person's hearing as say full-sized headphones with similar volume levels. When I take my UE3s out of my ears the sound i hear isn't as loud my ipod earphones. Is it only my perception that IEM volumes are too loud because everything else around me is blocked off? Or does the output turn out to be roughly the same decibel ratings considering its closer to my eardrums. Does anyone have any decibel ratings that can compare and contrast the difference between IEMs and earphones/headphones in general?
