Back in court again, Apple is now facing a class action complaint, brought by a customer who claims the company did not adequately warn customers about the potential for hearing loss from using the iPod. It is claimed that, at full volume, the device can damage hearing.

A complaint filed with a California court this week alleged that Apple’s music players were "inherently defective in design" and "not adorned with adequate warnings regarding the likelihood of hearing loss".
The complaint contends that millions of consumers have had their hearing put at risk by Apple’s conduct.
