So, I've had this iPad 2 for about 6 months, and earlier today I attempted to listen to a song through headphones. It was on YouTube. So I had headphones in, but forgot that I had headphones on last time and the album I listened to was really quiet, so the volume was up full. I turned the song on and it was the loudest thing I've ever heard. It was absolutely blaring out, and I had to pull the earphones out straight away to avoid hearing damage, my ears still hurt. Anyway, I think I've blown the sound drivers, because now all sound comes out riddled with static and now only out of one side with all earphones, I haven't tested if it's out of one side with the iPad yet, I'll check soon. But the speakers are riddled with static and all ****ed up.
