Amped to its highest volume, the iPod is not nearly as invasive the classic loud cell phone conversation. But it can have its moments — like when you're standing in an elevator at 9 a.m. and a co-worker cranks up Amy Winehouse's "Rehab." (Too early for that song.)


Full story Here

I know Ive been a victim between music, loud cars, and loud talkers, it makes going out to dinner more frustrating than relaxing. I dont even have a mp3 player, I need music at work and driving sometimes. Not anywhere else, at work I have moved alot of my music (legal of course) to my work machine, and I have cd's for the car, but I listen to alot of talk radio when Im driving.

What are your thoughts?

it only bothers me when someone's listening to crappy music too loud...if they would listen to decent music...it wouldn't be a problem

I can block it out for the most part...but seriously, why does the music have to be so loud? You're only ruining your hearing.
