First They Wreck Your Hearing, Then They Try to Save It.
Apple iPod HiFi and iPod Software Update 1.1.1
Apple introduced a new $349 iPod Hi-Fi stereo speaker system. According to a March 21st Washington Times article by Mark Kellner, "The iPod Hi-Fi [sounds] like a high-fidelity unit. The sound can fill a room or even overfill it, if you crank up the volume sufficiently. It is rich, the bass is deep and the treble trills quite nicely."
For parents concerned that too much loud music might be hurting their children's hearing, Apple is providing the iPod Software Update 1.1.1. It enables parents to set a maximum volume limit on their child’s iPod and lock it with a pass code. For further information on safe listening with iPod, visit www.apple.com/sound.
