“Bye mom… I am going for my class”
“Ok… Bye… have you forgotten your headphones on table?”
“Oh god… thank you mom… How can I forget them? Bye…”
Now-a-days primary needs of young generation have become mobile, laptop and their headphone. It’s not only at home but we need headphone everywhere. In market, to go to a shop, while driving and even in the toilet. Headphones are ruling our minds continuously the whole day. It’s not only the youth, everyone is using headphones. I have seen in many gyms, head phone are being provided for workout.
We all have become addicted to headphones for different reasons. There are many disadvantages for these headphones too. First let’s see why everyone uses these headphones everywhere.
Headphones is the most convenient way to keep ourselves entertained even when we are alone and even when we are in a crowd. When we are alone we can listen to music, whereas when we are in a crowd no one is disturbed due to our entertainment. If we are driving and we need to reach somewhere urgently and at the same time if anyone calls and we have to answer it then headphones reveal their importance. If we are travelling then headphones give a better quality of sound while talking to someone. Headphones are very user friendly though some people think it is a sign of coolness and wear it for show off.
Our experts from Just for Hearts says the most affected part of your body due to the usage of headphone is your ears. Like our skin, our ears also require fresh air or bacteria is created. This bacteria weakens our power of listening. We tend to face severe pain in our ears and head. This can also leads to ear infection. While driving we cannot hear other vehicles which creates a possibilities of accident. Loud music on headphones can damage our ears permanently.
It is recommended that one should not use headphones for long hours. One should keep the volume low to avoid accidents. Do not put the headphones deep inside the ear as it makes our ears air tight.
Headphones are given for our convenience so make good use of it. And next time when you are planning to use headphones ask yourself. Are headphones really necessary everywhere?
