Re: how high can i turn up my speakers?
Make sure your Windows Sound Settings for your sound card are balanced, so they don't overdo the speakers at high volumes.
With headphones, since they don't have an amp, I put the bass/treble on full, and the volume as high as I can stand without damaging my ears.
For speakers, I then turn the bass/treble to the middle, and the volume to around 50%
