Apple is facing a new class-action lawsuit from a Louisiana man who claims the computer maker has failed to take adequate steps to prevent hearing loss among iPod users.
According a ZDNet story (“Apple faces suit over iPod-related hearing loss”):

The suit, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in San Jose, Calif., charges that the iPod music player can produce sounds of up to 115 decibels even though some studies suggest that listening to music at that level for 28 seconds a day can cause damage over time.
