iPods pose threat to students

According to Alice Park of Time Magazine:

Teens who say they worry about hearing loss but still listen to their iPods at high volumes probably assume that the manufacturer's maximum default setting is safe, or that turning the volume down to anything but full-blast is harmless.

Park said, "most of us can, and are, spending more time listening to music through headphones, there is a real risk of hearing loss for anyone who plugs in."
