We can often see many people wearing Bluetooth headsets. Due to the development of technology, today’s headsets are very convenient, comfortable and have no foreign body feeling. Wearing them is just like not wearing them. So many people are used to wearing them all the time.

Will wearing headphones frequently affect hearing loss?
Regular wearing of headphones may cause hearing loss.

Frequent wearing of earphones will cause the earphone plug to be tight in the ear canal, which will cause wear and tear on the external auditory canal, easily causing congestion, edema or bleeding in the external auditory canal, and even cause inflammation of the ear canal leading to hearing loss. Especially when you often wear headphones, if you do not control the volume well, your ears will be affected by high-decibel music or other noises for a long time, causing hearing loss.
                                                                          Therefore, try to avoid wearing headphones for a long time. If you must wear headphones, you should control the volume and adjust the volume to an appropriate range to avoid excessive volume. And you need to take off your headphones before going to bed to avoid long-term ear canal irritation from the headphones.

Today’s young people are inseparable from headphones and wear them all the time when walking. Some people even like to turn up the volume very high. Little do they know that if things go on like this, it will cause great damage to their hearing. of damage. In particular, people who frequently enter and leave high-decibel places such as bars and KTVs should be aware that long-term exposure to noise can cause damage to the hair cells in the inner ear, leading to tinnitus. This damage is often irreversible, so friends must pay attention to the volume of their headphones. and the noise around you. It is recommended not to wear headphones continuously for more than 1 hour, and the volume should not exceed 60% of the maximum volume.

Long-term use of headphones can cause hearing loss. When headphones are worn for a long time, the sound pressure is concentrated on the eardrum, which can easily cause hearing fatigue. And due to long-term excessive stimulation, peripheral receptors are damaged, leading to tinnitus, heavy hearing, ear pain, and even hearing loss.

The frequency range of sound waves that the human ear can generally detect is 20-20,000 Hz. Hearing is more sensitive to the sound wave frequency of 500-1000 Hz, but not sensitive to noise between 2000-4000 Hz. If you use headphones for a long time, your hearing will be damaged in the high-frequency sound wave part (2000-4000 Hz). When the volume exceeds 85 decibels, long time can cause hearing fatigue; when the volume reaches more than 110 decibels, severe cases can cause irreversible hearing damage. andThe volume output of headphones is generally around 84 decibels, and some high-frequency ranges can reach 120 decibels. Such volume has a great impact on hearing.
