But do you know that wearing earphones or headphones for a long time can also cause you many harms. In such a situation, if you have to use earphones or headphones, which one is better and which one is less harmful to your ears, let us tell you.
Difference Between Earphones and Headphones
First, let us tell you what is the difference between earphones and headphones. The earphone is worn inside the ear, it can be wireless or wired outside and nowadays there is a trend of AirPods, which people wear inside the ears. While headphones are placed on top of the head and cover the entire ear but do not go inside.
Earphones vs Headphones What the Experts Say
Thus, both earphones and headphones cause damage to the ears and can also cause the problem of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) if worn for a long time. But experts also say that when earphones are inserted into the ear canal, they can push wax deeper into the ear canal, which can lead to an ear blockage. Second, it directly affects our eardrums, so an increase in volume can cause severe ear damage. Not only this, wearing earphones completely blocks the ears, which can also increase the risk of infection due to moisture.
What to wear earphones or headphones.
Experts believe that headphones can be used for longer than earphones because they do not go inside the ears, which does not cause hearing problems due to moisture or noise. However, when using headphones, the volume should be at a maximum of 60%. If your phone or laptop has a noise cancellation option, use it as well.
