      That thumping sound at the stop lights from your buddy’s car is a typical ‘ear fest’ about to happen. High pressures at unrealistic volumes of uncontrolled frequencies (unnatural boost) is inviting trouble. Big trouble. Of course the filtering of any wanted signal been destroyed by the car’s usually piss-poor acoustics only aggravates the matter. Listen to any good quality sound setup and you will not hear accentuated bass – the signals of varying frequencies and amplitude work seamlessly with each other and not against each other. If the harsh sounding high notes and thumping, boomy bass is unpleasant to your ears then you can be rest assured of a quick journey into quietness and tinnitus. I have played in a band for the last twenty years and high sound pressures do far less damage to your ears than that coming from an uncontrolled sound source. Your ears and hence your hearing are remarkably resilient but that crap from the effects channels of home theater or car audio systems is going to bust your drums once and for all. Just my dime’s worth.

      LOL! I have to laugh at this… FFS double blind listening tests have proven over and over again that most audiophiles are as dumb as cauliflower sh*t. Then we have the fancy-wagon sex trucks with these high powered ghetto-blasters raging inside with not one IQ point designated to quality. Power is everything. Good quality headphones, soft volume, great class-A headphone amp and you have all you want. But then again it all depends on how compressed your quality version of the music is that you prefer. The music today is utter crap – blasted from here to eternity. Sorry I am a cynic. Listen to music as it is supposed to be played and have a quality audio engineer at the wheel. My ears bleed.

      High powered amplifiers are very popular these days for this exact reason. As your hearing gets more damaged the more power we need. One day the hearing aid will have a 100W amplifier inside.

      I see a rather unusual piece of Ghetto amplification equipment advertised by Sony which promotes
      22 000 Watts. Now just to get a cutaway of the voice coil section of these loudspeakers, If each channel is delivering a whopping 10 000W into 4 Ohms we are looking at 50A. Copper used must be about 5mm thick. Anyhowz, makes the mind boggle.
