The Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) has issued headphone usage recommendations for maximum daily exposure and sound pressure levels [measured in decibels (dB)]. A decibel is a unit of sound measurement that increases exponentially with volume. For example, conversational speech is typically around 60dB, and a rock concert in a stadium is often about 110dB.

90dB 8 hours
95dB 4 hours
100dB 2 hours
105dB 1 Hour
110dB 30 minutes
115dB 15 minutes
120dB Avoid as damage may occur

When using your headphones at loud levels, listen carefully for any sign of harsh, garbled midrange and diminishing intelligibility. If detected, turn the volume down immediately.
NEVER TEST PEAK LISTENING LEVELS OF THE HEADPHONES BY TURNING THE VOLUME UP ALL THE WAY!
