    Hi. As the title really. I just bought a Digizoid Bass Booster/Amp. It pumps bass very impressively. So much so in fact that I am concerned that it may damage my ACS T-15's. The poor little things only have one tiny BA driver after all.

    Unless the earphone is poorly made, it will more likely damage your ears before it damages itself. Loud sounds in the midrange trigger defense mechanisms telling us to turn it down before we get hearing damage, but with large increases in bass, much of that protection is bypassed.

    Hi Dalethorn. Thank you very much for the reply. So I guess common sense is the way forward. As in most things!
