Hi, guys! I have a Macbook, (Late 2008) so now it would be considered a Macbook Pro? Anyway... I was using my apple earbuds on the instant messenger called Aim, sending some images to a friend. Every time you send a file through Aim, it makes a sound indicating that the file was received successfully. As I was sending an image, the sound came on, but it was 10x louder, Making me jump! I am now nervous to use them, and considering purchasing a different brand of earbuds. I hope I didn't write that too complicated... Thanks in advance.
