Our ability to hear is amazing. The Mark Levinson team wishes you to treat your ears like the precious tools they are so they will continue to provide you a lifetime of incredible sonic experiences.
In general, do not listen “too loud or for too long,” and be attentive to your own ears. Ringing, discomfort, or sensitivity to high frequencies and treble may be a signal from your ears that you are pushing them to their limits and causing irreparable damage.
As a general practice, find what seems to be your preferred listening level and then adjust the volume down another 10% or more. Surprisingly, your ears will attune to a slightly lower volume over time, and what seems quiet at first can be perfect for longer listening periods.
