I listen to music with my earphones really loudly at work. Is this safe?

No: The evidence is in. Loud music especially through headphones can eventually cause permanent hearing loss. Some young people listen at levels equivalent to jet engine noise! Turn it down, or better yet, turn it off and enjoy the quiet. ...Read more

Is it bad to listen to Netflix with earbuds on while I sleep?

Is it bad to listen to Netflix with earbuds on while I sleep?

Not ideal: It's obviously not ideal ... But, if you're doing it - just listen and don't look at the screen (ie, use ur phone laying down not the computer) - as this can mess up your sleep cycle. Also, I'd suggest turning off autoplay. Last, be extremely careful that the earbuds don't cut in to your inner ear canal - as this can cause damage. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Is it safe for my teenager to sleep with loud music on his headphones? And its not the soft music that a parent would like them to listen to!

Is it safe for my teenager to sleep with loud music on his headphones? And its not the soft music that a parent would like them to listen to!

No: Anytime a teen listens to hard loud music thru headsets may lead to hearing loss. Plus listening to music with words or tv keeps the brain stimulated as hearing never quits processing. Try substituting a sleep sound machine as many of us sleep better with constant droning. Like any bad habit be prepared for resistance! Teens never think bad things will happen. Be patient but firm on your request. ...Read more

I always sleep with music, it is hard to sleep without calm music playing, why? I fall asleep alot faster when I have my headphones on with music

The way you are: Because that's just the way you are- perhaps calming music is your body's way of shutting down to rest. In others- it may not work at all- it is great that you have found an avenue to get great rest! ...Read more

I hear a swishing noise when people talk to me, and a really bad swishing noise when I listen to music. Tried cleaning ears, doesn't help and hurts.?

I hear a swishing noise when people talk to me, and a really bad swishing noise when I listen to music. Tried cleaning ears, doesn't help and hurts.?

Don't clean ears: I would be concerned that at age 19, you have listened to very loud music that may have injured part of your inner ear. Cleaning the ears should never be performed by you. You can injure the canal skin or even the ear drum. Furthermore swishing in the ear probably is not related to your ear canal. You need a hearing test to rule out a high pitch loss. Also noises in the ear are not painful. ...Read more

Having : Having a relaxing before-bedtime routine is a very good way to let your mind and body know when it is time to sleep. For most people, a warm bath or shower, and a relaxing activity such as reading, meditation, or listening to relaxing music are parts of this routine. Musicians, who come to associate music with excitement or stress related to performance, may be conditioned to associated music with a state of mental and physical alertness that is incompatible with sleep. ...Read more

Risk of hearing loss: Damage to hearing by high volumes is determined by duration, even at reasonable volumes can damage delicate hair cells in the inner ear that transmit sound impulses to the brain. 1 in 5 teens has some form of hearing loss - 30% higher than in the 80s/90s - experts believe due, in part, to the increased use of headphones. https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/patientinstructions/000495.htm ...Read more

I heard classical music is good for baby's brain development. Won't he be bored by the music. How can I make her sure she is listening to the music?

Music: Why would you think a child would be bored listening to music? Everyone has a different experience in hearing or listening to music. Thinking is influenced by sensory experience in ways that are hard to quantify, but many neuropsychologists have found that the brainwave patterns exhibited with some classical music are associated with complex organization and learning patterns. Complex topic! ...Read more

My two ears are ringing after listening to very loud music with headphones. Any way to stop it?

Possibly: If the volume is too loud with head phones or ear buds like an ipod etc. Then you can very definitely damage your hearing esp. High frequency. The volume should never be so loud that it causes you to not hear someone trying to talk to you or that causes ringing in ears immediately afterwards. Rock concerts can be esp. Bad for this - wearing ear plugs is probably the best way to prevent damage here. ...Read more

A little less volume: You are subjecting your ears to too much sound and this will eventually catch up with you and cause hearing loss as you get older. Your early warning is that your "head is going to explode". So cut down the volume. ...Read more

Is it bad to sleep with earbuds in while listening to music? I've never done this but i want to try it a few times to see if it helps me sleep

Sleep with earbuds: Generally speaking, it is better to sleep without earbuds in place. If you do, no harm will come, as i presume you are not listening to loud music while you are trying to sleep. The bigger issue sounds like trouble sleeping. A noise generator in your bedroom, playing soothing sounds or music is a better choice than earbuds. ...Read more
