New rules for MP3 players


New laws are being considered to introduce a maximum volume setting for personal music players made in Europe.
This means that if you buy a music player you would only be able to listen to music at approved levels.
It's because a report warned that up to 10 million people in Europe risk damaging their hearing from listening to loud music.
Some doctors say they are already seeing more young people coming to hospitals with hearing problems.
The idea will be discussed by officials in Europe and could be made law next Spring.
