MP3 volume levels warning

17th November 2008

A study has shown that people who listen to their MP3 players for an hour or more every day risk causing "severe damage" to their hearing.

Crystal Rolf works as an ear specialist for the Royal National Institute for the Deaf.

She said that tinnitus - where a person hears a ringing sound in their ears - is caused "when small sensory cells in the ears get damaged after exposure to loud music over long periods of time".
