Volume you listen to your music (51)

1 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-08-01 01:37 ID:+4BHZwJk

How loud do you listen to your music when you don;t need to worry about disturbing everyone else.

When I have my big huge headphones on I usually put the volume to max MAX. I really like it as loud as possible. Just my way of fully enjoying my music ;p

As long as I can feel the bass. It will be very very loud untill I get a subwoffer. (^o^ ;)

3 Name: !!B7XQbMUL 2005-08-05 00:17 ID:Heaven

On my headphones, volume to MAX max.
When listening in speakers, muzakvolume.

I have 5 differnt volume controls working at once.

My computer volume is all the way up (along with the music program) then my mixer is half way and the slider is half, and my speaker volume is typically a quarter to halfway up.

You should be careful, I've heard that can permanently damage your hearing.

6 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-08-13 09:17 ID:HNFdsPKp

Fairly quietly. I get a little paranoid if the music is loud enough to block out most other sounds.

7 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-08-13 10:25 ID:iSmXaW/o

Depends. When I am cooking, I usually crank up the volume pretty good so that I can hear it in the kitchen and it will be louder than all cooking noises to put me in the right mood.

At night, when everything is quiet, I usually turn my music quiet, too.

Most of the time, I keep it to a fairly pedestrian volume. Every so often, though, I treat myself by plugging in a good pair of headphones and pushing it all the way up to the pain threshold. I can't have a truly transcendent musical experience without enormous volume.

I have my volume at a medium volum.
But i like it high at concerts and when i get a cool new song.
Also it depends on the music , like soft music is ok to hear at a ok volume , but Metal music must have maxx/high volume.

11 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-11-16 07:12 ID:KdZRAo+R

I prefer keeping the volume low, at least when I'm listening to "modern" genres of music. If I'm listening to music that's 100 years old or older, I'll pump it up quite a bit.

12 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-11-17 16:38 ID:Jssyc0FC

I listen to my music at medium to hight volume, however, I'm always fiddling with the sound levels to keep the distortion down.

13 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-11-18 02:26 ID:b9iwqn7i

It depends, but ever since I started having occasional ringing, I try to keep it as low as I can. My poor ears :(

16 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-11-18 22:17 ID:UySVSJbe

I turn the volume as high as it needs to be for me to hear every little nuance of sound. This is usually fairly loud, but not deafening.

17 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-11-19 08:33 ID:GqffIDgk

Not louder than my neighbours. I never hear too much music from their houses.
Which means I'm never using the speakers.
And i like to know what happens around me all the time so i keeep it at a medium volume.

19 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-11-26 00:04 ID:DdYavRVw

I never set the volume high and I like it that way. As long as I can hear it, I don't feel the need to make it louder, and when I use headphones, I always make sure I can hear my own voice clearly over the music. I listen to a lot of genres of music and I like it better that way, I don't get why the music would be better at high volume.

It takes longer than that.

22 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-12-05 03:37 ID:Heaven

Ah, I forgot to say.
With headphones, I personally keep the volume as low as I can get it before it becomes too soft to hear anything. Nuance is lost, but I do this with songs I've listened to over and over again... my brain reconstructs what it's supposed to sound like, and my hearing remains relatively unaffected.

I ruined my ears when I was around 12-13 by listening to music at MAX volume for extended periods of time. I now have the pleasure of tinnitus for the rest of my life.
At least I still have my hearing, but I don't know for how much longer. I can hear TVs and monitors whining away in the background - so its at least still at 15kHz

24 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-12-05 03:46 ID:2u6lreUV

>>22 Yeah I'm with you on that one I occasionally indulge myself with something really loud, but only if it is very good (and worth the hearing damage). I think the hearing damage I have already has changed the music I listen to - I can't stand music with heavy, loud beats any more - I mostly listen to melodic mellow stuff.

25 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-12-06 13:21 ID:Tg6gDkZg

as low as possible to know that i'm listening to something (and to know what this something is), this is quite low when I'm in bed relaxing but in the sreet it can become pretty loud. It happens quite often to me that I forget to get the sound lower and I get a shock.

26 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-12-07 11:42 ID:Heaven

medium to high ..

27 Name: Bubu F. Blankspace 2005-12-15 03:19 ID:Heaven

low to medium, I don't need to damage my eardrums to indulge in something and it's actually easier to discern all the details than when it's playing at ear-carcinogenous volume.

I'm with >>22 and >>24. I have the volume as low as possible while still hearing all the individual parts of a song, but sometimes turn it up if it's an especially good one. My parents are in their 50s now and starting to get hard of hearing so I'm glad I've tried to not overdo it. When I talk to them and certain other people for extended periods, the loudness of their voices becomes a little bit irritating. I can still notice the hum of my TV and cable box but I do get a high pitched tone now and then, so maybe I haven't been careful enough. :(

You'll regret that when you're 30 and can't hear frequencies over 18 KHz.

medium if im on the highway or open road in general. if i am in a white surburban neighborhood, i max it out, open the windows and blare rap, especially when the elementary school lets out. its not so much to scare them but make sure they dont run in front of my car.

37 Name: ♪ ☆ Never popular Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2006-03-07 15:20 ID:qa1OVabM

Mostly very quiet because I like to listen music while reading. If not reading I'm listening medium but I want to be able to hear what's happening around me.

my speakers are hooked up to a stereo system. There is quite a range of volumes I could go. Though I suppose it depends on what i'm doing and what mood i'm in.

Maximum comfortable volume wearing headphones, somewhat low using speakers.

about 95% with my laptop speakers (maximum volume without distortion, but the sound of the keyboard when i type is louder, lol), about 20-25% with the awesome earbuds that came with my audigy 2 zs notebook sound card, and about 50-60%% with normal headphones.

i listen to my music on my shure e3c earphones, so i usually keep it pretty low( about 1/5 of the ipod's total volume bar). I can hear everything regarding the music, and the earphones block out all external sound <3

I wonder how much listening volume affects your taste in music. I would think that since quieter music is less visceral, the quieter you listen, the more you'd look for clever, cerebral things rather than raw energy.

With my surround I play it at 40 out of 60.
Headphones, 11 out of 100.

I am kind to my ears.

46 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2007-08-06 03:37 ID:Heaven

Saying "max" or "40 out of 60" or stuff like that doesn't really tell us much, since the maximum volume depends on your phones and how your listening equipment is set up.

47 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2007-08-06 04:34 ID:tNwRM048

When listening with headphones I keep the volume at 50%[Windows master volume at half, though the device volumes [WAVE, MIDI, etc] are maxed out]. Since I'm a musician I kind of need my hearing for a long time.

48 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2007-08-22 15:49 ID:SG+QMKLe

As loud as I can handle (most of the time at maximum, depending on the song)

49 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2007-08-22 20:34 ID:Heaven

I tend to keep the volume low. Usually keep it at 8 (max is 32), sometimes turning it up to 11 if it's music that needs to be loud. If I'm pretty sure no one will be disturbed I might turn it up to the half way mark. Never saw any point in maxing the sound since it's so godawful loud I can't enjoy it. After 10 I keep it at 5, pretty sure that won't disturb my neighbors' nightsleep.
