    My Black Widows and Rattler (both DeterctrPro) have noise limiter circuits that clip the very loud signals.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Well, yeah, volume adjustment would be a nice feature, on the phones and/or your machine.
    But, there seems to be no loss of hearing the outside noises, and still hold on a conversation,
    without having to set aside one or both, in order to do so. It really feels like you are not wearing
    headphones at all...!
    I use another pair with my computer at home, so my rock and roll music doesn't bother my wife!
    Stick With It - It's not *IF* you'll find the good stuff , but WHEN!

    No such thing as too much rock and roll.
    My hearing loss was definitely military-related, then several decades more of
    Too-Much-Rock-and-Roll
    plus other unmentionable bad stuff happened to me..., where I think I've earned my hearing loss...!
    Eh?
    Besides, headphones, helps save on batteries, too!

    I know firsthand the cause of hearing loss. Megadeth live!
