Do you make them too? 7 common bad habits when wearing headphones

Almost everyone has some kind of headphones these days. Plugs, balls, with a bridge over the head and large ear-ears (so-called “on Otík”), wired, wireless, modern with conductive transmission through the bones… there are simply a lot of them. At the same time, a number of things can connect them and their wearer. For example, love of music or liking of the same genre. And or too bad habits associated with wearing headphones. We’ve picked seven of the most common, so see how many apply to you…

7 common bad habits when wearing headphones

1) Volume too high. Less is more somewhere. This also applies to adjusting the volume when listening to music or other audio through headphones. We are not saying right away that you should necessarily follow the limit, which is also recommended by Android phones, for example. Frequent listening full blast it can catch up with you very unpleasantly in old age. Regardless of the fact that with highly amplified headphones with an open design, you are quite possibly annoying the people around you.

2) Wearing headphones for too long. From a physical point of view, it is not good to have headphones in your ears or on your ears for too long. Even the hearing aid can get tired, and at the same time unwanted accumulation of earwax and ear infections can occur. This brings us to…

3) Neglected hygiene. The headphones come into contact with the ears, which are susceptible to bacteria. Many people forget to clean their headphones, which can lead to the spread of bacteria and cause the aforementioned infections. And so far we are only talking about one user. It also often happens that some people share seeds or plugs with acquaintances, which is without purification simply… eeeeuuhh!

4) Ignorance in traffic. Many people wear headphones when moving in traffic, such as cycling or crossing the road. This dangerous habit reduces the ability to perceive the sounds of vehicles and other means of transport, which can lead to accidents. Often fatal.

5) Using poor quality headphones. Bad headphones not only have poor sound quality, but can also cause more damage to your ears. You can, for example, with headphones with unwanted noise or poor dynamics resort to turning up the volume, which only seemingly eliminates the problem. Rather, it deepens it.

6) General indecency. Although the manufacturers of advanced models with an “ambient” mode for releasing or amplifying ambient sound are trying to us convincethat you can comfortably leave the headphones on even during a conversation, mostly you’ll be a badass in that situation. Maybe it will change over time, but it’s still probably more polite to take off your headphones. The person you are talking to usually has no idea how much you perceive them.

7) Addiction to music. Yes, this can be a problem too. Some people are so addicted to wearing headphones that this addiction can have a negative impact on social interactions and perception of the world around them. Some people even wear headphones for so long and at such high volumes that they ignore their own body’s signals that indicate fatigue or the need for rest.

So at which points did you blush?
