Oh, it's definitely not "tightened". I think it got stripped inside the earcup as turning it doesn't really do anything. I'll post a pic once I get home.

The general rule in a mfg plant is 8 hours exposure at 85 db. Wish I knew how it calculated out for say a two hour listening session.

Per OSHA, maximum permissible exposure limit for 2 hrs. is 100 dBA : https://www.osha.gov/dts/osta/otm/noise/standards_more.html

I use SPL meters (Rat Shack for loudspeakers & iPad app for headphones) to set volume listening range around 80- 85 dB max peaks.

That's about exactly where I set my peaks as well.... Thanks for the details!

just run a sound pressure level test on "Fade to Black" at the level that sounded just right and it peaked at 84dB

My workplace requires hearing protection if noise levels meet or exceed 85 dB. I used this as a maximum listening level maybe 15 yrs. ago. I also use ear plugs when mowing, leaf blowing, around loud machinery, etc.. I wish that I had been more proactive in protecting my ears prior to this, but better late than never ...

I agree with others that the Alpha Dogs retrieve inner detail so well, that lower listening levels are adequate & moderate listening levels are "perfecto" for kicking out the jams. cool.gif

Six more weeks to go (hopefully)...

I'd think your 6 weeks will really be more like 3 to 4 at this point. Unless you're getting the matte black option.

Another one of my favorite albums. I will make a note to play that early on once my ADs are here.
