Sound limit in headphones.
Hey :) Is that true that the headphones are locked at 100db? actually i care a lot about my health and i was wondering if it could damage ears at a long term use,don't worry i don't crank up the volume at the max xD but i want to make sure it's 100% safe... So,are any headphones forced to set a limit so it's impossible to damage hearing?

As far as I'm aware there are no headphones that limit the volume in any way. Also everyone is different so it wouldn't exactly be easy to accomplish this without limiting the volume to under 85db or more. Long exposure to loud music is a big culprit so try and be careful. If you have ringing in your ears after listening then it's too loud.

Just a note, anyone that hears a ringing in their ears after loud music. It's actually a sign that you have damaged your hearing a little.

Headphones don't tend to have a limit but many audio devices do.. And many limit it too much IMO
(I do enjoy cranking up the volume at times but not to a point where my ears will ring after)
