New volume standards for MP3 players

According to Reuters news article the European Commission has issued new volume standards for MP3 players on Monday this week. The new standards will require that MP3 players will play at a safe volume by default. There will also be a health warning so consumers who choose to override the default settings know the risks. Those new rules will require small technical changes to I-Pods and other MP3 devices. According to Yahoo news article “EU to set volume limits on MP3 players” new standards would see new players include a maximum sound level default at 80 decibels.

According to EU’s executive commission said the maximum sound levels of players now being sold range between 80 and 115 decibels with the supplied earphones. Using different earphones could add to those levels by up to 9 decibels. Above 120 decibels is equivalent to the level of noise generated by an airplane taking off.
