Using headphones in online class? What to do to protect the ears
Educational institutions are closed for a long time due to corona. Online classes have now become a habit of students. The use of headphones in this class is also increasing. However, the use of headphones for most of the day is unknowingly bringing danger to children and adolescents. Many people are having ear problems.
Research says that when you use headphones or earphones, the audio goes directly to the ears. Noise levels of 90 decibels or more can cause hearing problems if they go straight to the ear. Some may lose their hearing permanently.
Doctors say that people’s hearing would have decreased with age. But a recent study says that people have been suffering from multiple ear problems since a very young age, one of the reasons being the use of these headphones. That’s why everyone, big or small, should follow some rules when using headphones. E.g.
- If you want to use headphones for a long time, you need to rest for a while.
- Audio or music cannot be played at high volume.
- It is better not to share earphones with anyone. Otherwise, ear infections can easily occur. Bacteria from someone else’s ear can easily get into the ear through headphones.
