Modern Recordings (Loudness) damage headphones/speakers?

A lot of modern recordings have dynamic range compression and peak near 0 digital decibels.
Is it possible for these to do damage to headphones and speakers?
Because of the endless loud peaks?
I would think if you listen to it really loud yes even very dynamic stuff can damage it.
But a normal moderate listening level I would think it wouldn't damage anything it's just squashed the dynamics and robbed the listener of using the volume knob.
