Some studies have indicated that MP3 players played loudly and often can have an adverse effect on your hearing.
Constant exposure to high sound levels wears out and eventually kills the hair cells in the inner ear, which leads to permanent hearing loss.
The best way to be safe is to limit the volumes at which you listen to your player, and take frequent breaks to allow your ears to recover. Doctors agree that the safe exposure limit is one hour a day with headphones, and the volume set to no higher than 60 percent. If you listen longer than this, set your volume lower than 60 percent.
If you want to listen to your player longer and louder, invest in a good pair of speakers.
