Headroom of Final Master

Headroom of Final Master

Do you output masters peaking at 0dBfs, or do you leave, say 0.5dB of headroom to reduce clipping when consumers convert to lossy formats down the line?

Thanks so much for doing this!

I leave about .2 or .4 but it depends on the program and who the client is.
