Does anyone else feel better when they play their music loud in their home, car, etc?

Thanks.

Only sometimes, when it's my favourite music :wink:

Having music playing constantly helps cover up smaller noises that would drive me crazy.

I like playing loud music, when it's my own.

I enjoy turning the volume of my music up to its maximum capacity when no one else is around. The only time I keep the volume down is when I'm listening to the radio in the car.

Mostly at home. I like to hear a little engine growl over my music when I'm driving. Not to mention sirens. One time I almost got tboned by an ambulance making a left turn. My music was a little loud at the time but I heard the siren of the firetruck...dang quiet ambulances.

I always like it if the radio is on in a car, so I can phase out, staring out the windows. Ofcourse I don't drive, I don't even have a driver's license.

No. I prefer to listen at a reasonable volume.

...and there's curious. Odd that we say "volume" to mean "amplitude" for sound.

I can't stand to have music quiet. I love loud music. It isn't deafening to me, volume just makes it more forceful and present. Ironically, after 'punishing' my ears with this approach for as long as i've been able to adjust the volume on *anything* I can still hear higher frequencies than most people my age and a bit younger. :)

Yes, but only if it's a song that I love. Loud music that I don't like sounds like a piercing, unbearble noise, and I have to leave the room to get away from it.

acoustic scientists are fond of saying "there is only one correct playback volume," and that is the exact sound pressure level of the original performance in its original recording venue, at the position of the recording microphones. listening at lower volume levels means that the ear is not going to hear softer sounds at the frequency extremes, hence the common need for "loudness compensation" tone contour circuitry in home audio equipment.

I listen mostly to rock (Queen, Rush, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Atreyu, Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, etc), and I attempt to listen at the "correct playback volume" whenever possible. I seldom listen to music after 10 pm, as I'm afraid the cops will be called. :lol:
