Why headphones are hazardous to our health
A few years ago heaphones became a very popular item to own. Reports came out about headphones damaging your eardrums because of the loud volume of noise they produced. Many people were becoming deaf, but now the new scare is not being able to hear the nosie outside the music. Heaphones have come a long way in a decade and some are now soundproof. This worries many beacuse people are not able to hear the surrounding world without removing their headphones. Therefore, new headphones have come into production that have an ambient noise boast. So, pedestrians can hear noises from the outside world without removing their headphones.
I own a pair of sound proof headphones, and it is a concern that I cannot hear outside nosie when wearing then. My mom is constantly yelling and tapping me when she needs to get my attention while I wear my headphones. I love my headphones though becasue they give a great surround sound to the music playing, unlike normal headphones. Since there are new headphones out that give the surround sound and give an ambient noise boast, they will be perfect for me and I will definitely have to check them out!
