Earpiece or headphones have come to be accepted as the norm in the society, from draining out noise to looking cool to listening to our favorite tunes, to blocking stupid people (have done it a couple of times). Regardless of why you use an earpiece, there are certain effects that come with the extensive use of the lovely attachment.
1. HEARING LOSS:
This is one common feature of the prolonged use of an earpiece, as prolonged exposure to focused sound from the headset on the eardrum comes with its side effect. This leaves the user straining to hear even in the quietest environment. When your ear starts to itch, it’s a sign that you are putting a strain on the ear.
2. NO AIR PASSAGE:
The earphone and headphone companies ensure that you get a really nice audio experience. But with decent audio experience comes health risks. To get the best audio experience, we need to insert the earphones directly into ear canals which result in no air passage. Yes, the music sounds great but with no air passage, you are at higher risk of ear infections.
3. PAINS IN THE EARS:
People using earphones and headphone, usually complain of pain in the ears. Some strange sound buzzing inside or ears or a sharp pain in a certain point of the ear.
4. EAR INFECTION:
Your earphone is a breeding ground for a variety of bacteria, easily passed through sharing with other individuals. Bacteria from the ears of different people can be transferred to you once said device comes in contact with your ears.
5. BAD EFFECTS ON THE BRAIN:
Electromagnetic waves produced by earphones and headphones can cause serious dangers for your brain. The inner ear is directly linked to the brain, even a little infection in the inner ear can directly affect the brain and can lead to serious health issues.
