In brief: Excess volume damage

Certain frequencies in the hearing range can and have been damaged by use of ear buds.
Earphones, and attending concerts where the noise is too high (measured in decibels) and too prolonged. This is why people,who work in high noise areas wear ear covers and sound deadeners to prevent this injury.
