You're right... although, it depends much on the level that the recording has, for example, most of electronica the volume bar goes lined with the end of the album cover (iPod classic 160) other albums, like dream house I reach 80%, but it's record level is very low.
I think I must measure spl to have a reference... As 334 are very sensitive (as you're saying) and they are very smooth in upper region, I'm probably risking my ears, not noticing.
Thanks for the warning.

Be careful. I never listen over 30% with the 334 on an iPod touch 4G and most often much, much less. My nano 7G gets up to about 5 pars with them.
