Help ease my worries, new headphones damaged?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi first time post and I am a bit worried. I got my first pair of high end phones the audio technica m50x! However, when I went to plug them into my ipad air and put them on I had the volume up at full! The song was give life back to music by daft punk. I might be a bit paranoid but, other than my ears hurting a bit did I damage my new cans at all?? They sound fine and I know there is a break in period, I just hope that I did not harm them in anyway for long term use....

No, they will be completely fine. I also have a pair of m50s and I accidentally put them on full blast from my Galaxy S4 every now and then, but their sound has never changed because of it.

You probably didn't damage them, unless you turned up the volume extremely loud. In which case, then the drivers might have been damaged but as long as you put the phones under reasonable volumes, perhaps a bit more than you're supposed to or should listen to; then you should be fine for the most part.

It was for like 7 seconds. I have not noticed anything but great sound. But, I worry about the future and how they will hold up. The ipad does not have a strong output compared to say if I used an amp and it was on full volume for a few seconds...

7 seconds? No, I really wouldn't worry about it.
