1The volume level of the sound that transmits from headphones or earbuds into the ear of aperson wearing this type of device has been linked to hearing loss. The volume should be set lowenough that other people nearby cannot hear the sound being transmitted. The quieter the sounds,the less possibility of hearing damage. Further, listening at a higher volume for extended periods of time could be unsafe. One expert suggest people should listen at only 30 percent maximum volume[CITATION Chamberlain \l 1033 ]. 1 Gupta and Pardo state that effective noise-cancelling technology reduces the interference of sounds from the surrounding environment, reducing the volume level required by headphone and earbuds.[CITATION Gupta \p 75-78 \n \t \l 1033 ]
