    Do you crank it up or are you cautious?

    I am in the habit of listening later in the evening (when it's generally quiet), and usually listen at just 3 or 4 button clicks up from 0.

    Maybe a click or two higher if I'm listening in the day.

    What about you?

    Wow, really? I thought I was listening at an exceptionally low volume.

    Anyone admit to cranking up the volume with headphones?

    When jogging/ exercising, I usually put the headphones at about 40%. If its late at night and I'm watching a movie or listening to music, I wish there was a lower volume setting available and often find myself fighting to get the volume slider just a hair above mute.

    As low as possible, but loud ambient noise, like the subway, cause me to jack it up a bit higher then I prefer.

    I knew a guy who used to listen to the TV very softly, I don't know if he could really listen to it or he just used it for background noise, or was he just showing off how good his ears was. ANNOYING! :rolleyes:

    Yup, full volume pretty much whenever I'm listening with the exception of when I'm at work. (shrugs) It's cool, I'm from the 80's, if a merry-go-round couldn't kill me loud music doesn't have a chance.

    Depends on where I am, what headphones I'm using etc. Usually it's about 60-70%, just one block before it turns yellow :p

    The UK volume limit has visual feedback as well? Had no idea...

    Yes, not sure if it's UK only or worldwide?

    I'm usually at 40% of the volume or lower, since I have Studio Beats, it gets very loud!

    Never seen that with any of my NZ devices...

    Personally I usually have it about 1/3 of the way up (which is probably a different scale compared to the UK one!). Occasionally I'll have it up higher; a couple of orchestral CDs are comparatively quiet so I need to have it up about halfway for those.
