I am in a bit of a predicament and would appreciate advice. Although this doesn't involve headphones, I assume many of you have home audio systems as well. I'm using simple studio monitors (M Audio BX5 D2 no sub).
I live in a one bedroom apartment, and the only "neighbor" I have is below me; none on any of the sides. What I don't know is how loud I can play my music, without them (1) hearing music or (2) being annoyed by the music.
I haven never had a complaint about the music being too loud. However I am not sure what's a reasonable limit. I want to ask my neighbor downstairs, but I am afraid he'll say "it's already too loud!". Should I just play it loud until I get a complaint? The only problem with this is my neighbor is also the manager of the apartments!
