We have been to a BUNCH of parties lately, and some had music SO loud it was actually uncomfortable. When TEENS there asked for the DJ to "tone it down" that really said something! So how do you enjoy party/dance music volume?
If I'm going out for drinks and conversation then I like it soft. Usually if I'm going out it's for music and dancing. In that case, I want to be able to hear the bass while I'm waiting in line. I want to feel the bass pump through the dance floor and into my body. That's like a freaking rush to me. Love it.
Had to choose other, I tend to keep it sort of moderate if it's just me listening to it but if there's other people listening as well I'll turn it up a few more clicks.
I don't feel like losing my hearing by blasting my eardrums with too loud music, there's too many important things to hear in this life to waste such a valuable gift like hearing. ^_^
