Hi all, how are you? I am new here. 4 months into it and I have a question. I use my ipod/iphone at night and listen to crickets, or ocean waves or even soft piano music. I use the ear buds that came with the ipod/iphone, BUT I only have the volume maxed out at 2 clicks up on the volume and never any higher. So my question is, is this alright for me to do, or is this something not recommended. I've heard many say it's alright, and I've heard others say don't do it, but is there a scientific evidence of why one shouldn't use ear buds at very low volumes to not mask the T, but so I can focus on other noises? And like I said, I only have the volume cranked up one or at most two clicks up on the volume. Thanks everyone. I appreciate any help you can provide.
