I’ve always been kinda paranoid about whether people can hear the audio of a BL drama I’m listening to while taking public transport and I notice that recently, I’ve been listening to music on my iPod at a much higher volume than before… so more than ever, I begin to wonder if my current volume level is going to out my BL drama listening activities to unsuspecting strangers without my conscious knowledge…
So, I decided to test playing a hard-sex track from Netsujou no Ori de Nemure (when I’m at home of course) at my current listening volume.
Having no other test subject to report the findings, I pressed the earphone against my own wrist and played the track…
OMG… Waccha’s moans can be CLEARLY heard!!!!!!!!
So if a person is right next to me, which is really common if you’re squeezing with other commuters on a bus or train during the morning/evening rush hour, it’s all there, ecstatic moans, breathless pants, climatic cries and all *MEGA-sweat drop*
Then I tested the same track with my headphones… Since the audio playback is clearer than the earphones at a lower volume, I don’t have to turn up the iPod as loudly. But the sound leak result is nearly the same, although a lot softer, the audio clarity is MUCH BETTER than earphones. Well… yeah, I suppose if I’m using headphones, the person has to stand a lot closer to me to enjoy the smexy audio with me but even then… it’s kinda… o_O lol~ *dead*
Maybe it’s not such a big deal but… I’m an idiot to not to realise this early enough *_* I used to be a little irritated when I sit or stand near commuters who play their music really loudly and the noise spills over from their earphones, so I’ve always been careful to lower my own volume in case it becomes a nuisance to others. But now I think maybe I’ve been gradually turning up the volume on my iPod higher than before. It’s scary cos my ears could be slowly dying on me as I can’t seem to be able to hear as clearly as before at the same volume? x_x
Any experience to share? Hope I not being too paranoid here XD
