EC calls for limit on maximum volume on MP3 players.

Story.

Quote:
The European Commission is calling for a suggested maximum volume to be set on MP3 players, to protect users' hearing.

The commission wants all MP3 players sold in the EU, including iPods, to share the same volume limits.

This follows a report last year warning that up to 10m people in the EU face permanent hearing loss from listening to loud music for prolonged periods.
Aside from the general annoyance of having to listen to someone else's heavy metal or rap on the bus, this seems a little intrusive.

I doubt many people listen to music at that volume anyway, and i'm all for protecting people's hearing, but this just seems well, stupid.
