I recently e-mailed Shure to know what sound pressure can achieve a little combo composed of a SE530 with a Sansa clip... more than 150db
Immagine it with a powerfull player like the DX50... no comments.
Stapedius reflex reduces sound intensities :
At more than 121 dB It can't resists, The inner ear is damaged irreparably.
At 121 dB, it resists 7 s. Then the inner ear can be damaged irreparably.
At 109 dB, it resists 1 minute 52 secondes.
At 100 dB, it resists 15 minutes approximatively.
At sound pressure of 150 db the sound is becoming a shock wave... like you are in a big explosion (or full throttle jet reactor at one meter)
