How long is too loud?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Heres the setup:

foobar with volume set to max;
fii e7 set to 30 with bass boost on 1;
and my a.t. mx50s

now im listening to Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, and at the part in the end with the big drums, i can feel the headphones vibrating. Is this too loud? its not hurting my ears or anything, i just dont want to damage my headphones.


thanks

i'd be worrying about my ears before the headphones. im sure your ears will hurt first before your headphones. as long as your haven't lost all (or most) of your hearing then you should be fine...your headphones as well.
