iPods do not damage your hearing

Earbuds jammed into your ear at to high a volume damage your hearing.  This is not a problem that is specific to iPods, it can happen with in-ear 2–way radio sets, any sort of earbuds regardless of the device they are attached to, handsfree calling kits for your cellphone, and anything else that you jam in your ear.

I’m just a little frustrated that news stations seem to be slanting stories so that it seems as if iPod devices themselves are the culprit.

If you jam a speaker inside your ear and crank up the volume of said speaker, you will damage your hearing.
