Just as the title says, if I were to pump up the bass on my headphones to 100% via SBX control panel (Sound blaster X-fi) off my mobo, would the insanity of bass pop the drivers or something. They do vibrate a ton, but I'm scared all that bass my induce permanent damage. Does it?

Thanks.

generally no.

doing super heavy EQ tweaks might result in some distorted sound but not damage.

turning up your headphones too loud when connected to a decently powerful amp however could if you exceed the power rating of the drivers.

generally though, you would get hearing damage before you would do that. i'd be more worried about your ears as JNPE stated than your headphones.
