      Hi - not sure where this post goes -- but I have a son with a disability (non-verbal, 15 yrs old) who LOVES to watch videos on the computer at high volume. The computer doesn't have a way to limit volume output.

      I found this product that goes between the headphones and the computer and it works very well - the noise stays very reasonably quiet. Because hearing loss is hereditary in my family I fear he'll develop tinnitus and due to his disability not be able to express what is going on. It's only about 5 bucks on Amazon.

      Just thought I'd share if anyone has a family member prone to high-volume habits. They do have volume limited kids headphones that look like panda bears etc . . . but I can't bear to have my 15 year-old wear those!

      "Limits Volume To 80% of Maximum Output" - That might not be enough, depending on the headphone sensitivity and output power. Smarter device would limit the output decibels, but that would cost probably more.

      Hi - well . . . I combined that little cable with sound-limiting headphones (dB Logic HP 100, about 20 dollars). I'm sure it's still not enough - BUT it's way better than what he was doing. Even with the computer volume at its loudest it's quite low through the headphones.
