    Hi guys, i just bought a macbook pro retina 13, is it safe to play the macbook pro at the maximum volume? I usually listen to music via spotify, and I always put the highest volume on my old laptop. will I damage the speakers by doing that on this macbook pro? this is my very first macbook. Please share your experience. Thanks:)

    Yes of course it's safe.

    However, if you want good quality sound then you will need to invest in some good (wireless) headphones.

    Yes, it's safe. No, you won't damage the speakers.

    Why would apple design it so maximum volume would damage it?

    yeah, actually i have a small store, and i use this macbook to play the music the whole day, so i am just wondering, will i damage the speaker if i keep playing music at the maximum volume the whole day. I know nothing about speaker, but I have seen some blown laptops' speakers :confused:

    It's perfectly safe, however I would recommend you get some cheap external speakers as those will sound louder and better than your rMBP's built-in laptop speakers.

    Bluetooth speakers of some description will give you a much better sound and make positioning a non issue your mac can be left under counter or in the back of the shop.

    I use these for good sound and reasonable bass at a decent price. They easily fill a room with sound.

    Yeah, it's safe though no damage done at all.

    I might know why batmanbegin might be skeptical of running sounds at high volumes since this is their first MacBook (I'm making the assumption that they just migrated from PC Laptops).

    Back when I had an HP Pavillion dv5 laptop, I blew out the so-called "Dolby Premier System" internal speakers just by using the normal 100% system volume. I totally destroyed the speakers after only 5 weeks of having the machine. It seemed to me that in order to make the speakers louder, HP made the 100% volume too much for the little tiny things. Worst of all, HP claimed that it was not their responsibility or problem since I blew out the speakers myself. They quoted $400 to replace them, which was insane, considering that the laptop only cost $750. I never got the speakers replaced, and just about 3 months ago the motherboard crapped out and the whole machine no longer works.

    That said, I have had a MacBook Pro for about three years now and I always play songs and other sounds on full volume when I am using the built-in speakers, and I have never had a problem with them. You will be fine.
