Just a question..
I have got the iphone 4 and the etymotic hf5 arrived just yesterday. Also to me, the etymotics are great, actually fantastic, and they are my first somewhat expensive iems.
Anyways how loud can i turn up the iphone whilst not damaging my ears, anybody got any experience with these iems?
For those who don't know, the hf5's have got an impedance of only 16 ohms, and a sensitivity of 105 dB.
I would suggest that someone with an hf3 or hf2 should help out by downloading the Awareness! app onto their iPhone and seeing how much the app adjusts the volume by in normal settings. That value should give you a good idea of the volume level that you should set your hf5 to.
