Experts agree that listening to music above 85dB can cause hearing damage. Most parents probably remember their parents telling them to turn the music down. The difference nowadays, however, is that kids (and grownups) are listening to excessively loud music piped directly into their ears via the ubiquitous earbud headphone and parents don’t know when to yell “Turn it down!” The modern solution is headphones from iHearSafe which always remain below the 85dB level no matter how high the volume is cranked up.
