I am trying to listen less loud, but sadly I have conditioned my acoustic brain to find quieter headphone listening as uninvolving and I reach for that volume knob. Recently with my speaker rig I have become far more able to listen quietly and enjoy the experience so hopefully I can do the same with headphones. I have recently been doing online hearing tests and it seems that my hearing is still quite good with a slight dip in the 4K frequency. I won't deny that I am surprised as I have spent many years being unkind to my ears (so many loud concerts). Now that I am aging I need to really take care of my hearing.
