There are countless times when you need headphones in your daily life. Pretending to be the protagonist of the sadness MV on the car, wearing headphones to listen to hurt songs; watching videos on the subway, wearing headphones to be qualified passengers; quiet at night, wearing headphones to listen to their own songs. For ordinary people, a pair of headphones is enough for daily use. So what should we pay attention to when choosing headphones? Many people say, "In-ear headphones are more harmful to the ears than headphones". Is this really the case? Let the Headband Bluetooth Headphone Supplier talk to you one by one.

At present, the most common headphone styles on the market are mostly flat-head, in-ear and head-mounted. The flat-head style is the most common style in previous years. The earpiece is flat and worn on the auricle, which is convenient to carry. In-ear and flat-head are similar, but with a rubber sleeve on the head to allow it to penetrate deep into the ear canal. The head-mounted type, as the name suggests, is a relatively earphone, which is a bit inconvenient to carry when going out.

So, when it comes to the damage to the ears, who is the most harmful?

High decibels and long time wearing headphones are hard culprits that cause ear damage. If you can achieve low volume and regular breaks when wearing any headphones, it will not hurt you much.

Now that we have to compare the damage to the ears of the three types of headphones, let's talk about the different types of headphones separately. Flat-head headphones are worn on the auricle, because the speakers do not penetrate into the ear canal, and the speakers diverge, so theoretically they do not hurt the ears much. However, because it does not penetrate the ear canal, it does not have noise reduction function and poor sound insulation like some headphones. In a noisy environment, not only will you hear noise other than audio, but it will also make you involuntarily crazed the volume magnification key , Virtually causing damage to the ears.

In-ear headphones are deep into the ear canal, soundproof, and can hear details even at low volumes. However, because in-ear headphones form a closed environment in the ear canal, and the earphones are not clean for a long time, it is easy to breed bacteria, and it is easier to breed in the closed environment, which is very bad for ear hygiene. At the same time, since the vibrating diaphragm of the in-ear headphones is closest to the eardrum, the sound "buffering area" is small, and the space for sound divergence is small.

Headphones are relatively bulky, and some people will abandon them to clip their ears, and their preferences vary from person to person. However, many headphones have a noise reduction function, and the sound source is far from the eardrum, which is conducive to sound divergence and relatively less damage to the ear. The disadvantage is that it is inconvenient to carry out and more at home.

At present, there is an internationally recognized "60-60" principle for protecting hearing, that is, the volume is lower than 60% of the maximum volume of the device, and the continuous use of the headset does not exceed 60 minutes each time. Using headphones under such a principle can better protect hearing. Of course, Sports Wireless Earphone factory reminds you that you should not use headphones in a noisy environment. If you want to use them, it is better to use sound-proof headphones .
