    Could it damage my ears or impair my hearing if I have my head phones on full blast? I do it for house listening to music and sometime when I take the head phones off my ears are sore and aching.

    No, I listen to metal music full volume with a volume boosting headphone amp and can hear perfectly fine

    So you do a have a pain in my ear when I take the head phones off? Or have them on too long? Maybe I need new head phones?

    That just sounds like uncomfy headphones. Damaging your actual hearing could take place years later.

    Yeah, that could be it. They aren't high quality, just cheap. I need more money.

    But yeah, answering the question, long term it will do damage. But just now and again should be fine :cute:

    Your ears hurting after listening generally isn't a great sign

    Yes, listening to loud music for a prolonged amount of time will make your hearing worse later in life.

    Everyone saying things like "I do it and my hearing is fine" and "It matters later on" are complete idiots. Loud music will give you hearing loss and likely tinnitus.

    In fact it would probably do you all some good to experience temporary tinnitus so you know what you're getting yourself into if you continue with your ways.

    The thing is, when you are younger you do not realise the damage you will do to your hearing but using loud headphones/earphones will most certainly damage your hearing and you may find as you get older that you struggle to hear conversations, especially so in a group or crowd with background noise.

    I used to always have my earphones on full blast and developed a perforated ear drum which would regularly rupture in my right ear. That was no fun!

    It certainly will cause damage, even if it doesn't seem like it. Using earbuds rather than headphones is not a good idea as it pushes wax to the back of the ear which then becomes hard layers and won't move out naturally, and can affect your hearing too. Perforated ear drums will lead to an extended period of hearing loss and are really nasty. If you must listen to loud music, headphones are the way to go.
