    How are you guys doing?

    I recently watched a YouTube video that had music playing in the background.
    The music was quiet at first but in one scene it was extremely loud and distorted.

    Even tho I had the volume on the lowest setting on my mac it was so loud that i had to mute the video.

    I fear that my speakers got damaged because of that video. I have pretty good ears and now when I listen to music I feel like some high frequencies are annoying me. For example the hi hats on some songs seem to ˋstab´.

    Now, I hope Im just paranoid and the mac speakers are okay but is there a chance that a YouTube video damages imac speakers?
    I read that youtube normalizes audio to prevent distortion but I downloaded some videos, pulled them into a DAW and saw that they were clipping.

    Too Long, Didn’t Read: Can clipping / distortion damage iMac speakers?

    Link to the vid you were listening to? I wanna trash my speakers too at their lowest setting...

    (In other words: Did something break? Possibly. Will anybody believe an outlandish claim aimed at making it look like it was totally not your fault? No.)
