    I'm not sure if I did something but after--or maybe even before--I jailbroke my itouch when I play music it's very loud. So loud that when I ride the bus I can't even hear the bus' engine.

    I'm concerned about eventual hearing loss from this, and was wondering if there's a fix for this loudness. Even at the lowest setting the sound [so that it looks like the volume is silenced] it is quite loud.

    There is no volume limit set in the itouch. I've even went into itunes, selected a song and in Get Info>options>volume adjustment> minus 100% and it makes no difference.

    Now, I've jailbroke and restored my itouch a few times just to get it configured the way I wanted it, so I'm pretty sure that didn't cause the sudden volume rise.

    Anyone know of any other troubleshooting solutions for making the music volume less loud?


    Also, I'm using a PC and Sennheiser CX 300s earbuds, which work fine with my cowon A3 though they are different machines and most likely have different volume settings.

    I would suggest cheaper earbuds, honestly, if its that important.

    I dont mind loud music at all, and I really dont think its going to cause damage to your ears/ear drums.

    Dont worry about it.

    You are lucky. I can't crank my volume up enough to drown out really anything

    That seems like a strange problem...

    Though it doesn't say it, I'm fairly sure listening to music is a leisurely activity.

    The reason for the sennheisers is that--aside from the quality--they go into the ear and block out noise so I don't have to crank up the volume as much as outer ear earbuds. But thanks for the suggestion, and lol at your signature!

    Get different earbuds, such as canal earbuds like I have. Or go to an ear doctor and get a hearing test. Maybe you're losing your hearing?

    Is this going to turn into a "how earbuds damage ears" thread now...?

    I had that problem lol, and unplugging the headphones and restarting the ipod fixed it for me.
