Over the course of several spring mornings, Ray Hull, a professor of audiology at Wichita State University in Kansas, walked around a university campus looking for students who were listening to music through headphones. As he found them, he tapped them on the shoulder and asked for their headsets in the name of science. Using an artificial ear, Hull measured the volume of the tunes streaming into the students' ears. Many readings were around 110 decibels. Some were 120.
