Headphones

#244645 1 year, 5 months ago
anybody listen to music threw headphones regularly?

I just threw on a cheap pair that was sitting around for shits and giggles, and it's like a whole other world - gotta get me a good pair now

I can't imagine listening to music any other way when I'm by myself anymore.... is it bad for your ears to listen to too much loud music threw them?

I have a winter hat on to help keep these cheap little ear things in place

I have a pair that I use when traveling. But not at home. I have a pretty good set of speakers.
Listening to China>rider, 10/17/74.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

They say that you should not exceed more than fifteen minutes at 75% volume or damage can start to accrue. What happens with head phones is they block out noise from other sources so that your ear becomes more in tune with the frequencies that are in closer proximity to your ear. This creates a bigger sound because your ear is now only having to reproduce a few sound waves.

I use my headphones at work a lot and have a pair of over the ear Senheisers that are literally the greatest way I have yet to come by of listening to recorded music. The first time I listened to Dark Side of the Moon on them it blew my mind to pieces, there were things I had never heard before even though I had listened to the album maybe 5 million times. They were pretty expensive around $120 and I can't listen to any type of AUD recordings on them because they just pick up too much chatter, hissing, popping, etc but put on a studio or really well cleaned up album and it's like listening to music for the first time!

Listening to Pink Floyds Live At Pompeii right now, best recorded versions of Careful With That Axe Eugene, Echoes, and Saucerful of Secrets Ever!!!!

The ringing in my ears right now tells me about the damage done.

I know of one prominent radio dj who attributes head phones to hearing loss. Now mind you, we're talking about someone who wears head phones as part of their job, and most of us aren't likely to use them that much. But in the wrong hands they can do damage, I'm convinced. At the same time they do greatly enhance the listening experience providing a new way to hear even familiar music.
