Listning to "personal stereo" for more than 6 hours a week is defined as "Heavy exposiure"!? We're all doomed!

So where do you get those neat numbers for your amp? None of mine came with numbers.

There are some things in life I cannot live without, enjoying music, be it on speakers or on headphones is one of them.

Myopia was never that prevalent before the invention of TV sets. Few of us can live without TV's nowadays.

I am willing to live with hearing damage over time, while still enjoying music, in moderation.

I almost always stick below 70dB with my cans. Normal listening will fall into the 62-65dB range. Yes, I got an SPL meter myself a few weeks ago. Nice little toy that found a home here with me.

Well, out of my Meta42 (from the Karma) I listen from 7:30-8 when I'm just listening to the music casually and 9:00-9:30 when I want to get into the music.
