I can’t hear you

I think this is a positive sign that NZ is looking into the damage that these things do to hearing.

Let’s just hope they also consider the volume levels inside cars

Nerine is an unknown quantity at this point

Our kids have got these but they're fitted with noise reducing earphones so they don't have them up too loud but I think there is also a AVLS that can be downloaded to restrict the max decibels.

iPod decks are quite cheap now so they have those too.

There must be some unwritten rules somewhere in BE, limiting the number of links to be posted. (If they were all "how wonderful life is in NZ" links) an eyelid would not be batted.
