Comment ipod earbuds are to blame (Score 2, Insightful) 405

Sadly, the white ipod earbuds are the primary cause of hearing loss/damage.

The earbuds aren't designed to seal the ear canal so people have to run the volume so high on them to get above the noise level.

Apple's only concern is to include the cheapest headphones possible. Unfortunately, the white earbuds are a (pathetic) fashion statement, and they sound good enough that most people keep them.

Never appeal to a man's "better nature." He may not have one. Invoking his self-interest gives you more leverage. -- Lazarus Long
