Hi, I just have a quick question hope someone can help me with it.

Will loud volume damage balanced armature iems?

Today, I happened to be hearing to my iPod nano 7g at full volume on my westone um1. It was a guitar song and I left it on max volume for 3-5 seconds. Just wondering if it will damage my iems? I tried hearing songs again after 1 hour and the vocals seemed abit softer. I don't know if it is my ears or something else.

Pls assist

Thanks!

It's hard to say since the manufacturer doesn't provide max. power specifications. With the short duration and "limited" power of the iPod I doubt there's damage.
