Depends: If you keep the volume reasonably low, there should be little to no long term risk of hearing damage. Most people however listen to music with the volume up to high. Ear phone/ ear buds will concentrate all of the sound into your ear and can cause damage after prolonged use. ...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.?

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

I was listening to music with headphones. Then when i took my right headphone out, it felt like it pulled my eardrum out. Now my right ear feels bad.

Ear pain: It didn't pull your ear drum out. Were you using head phones that go over your head or ear phones that go inside the ear canal? big difference. You may have created a tight seal and when you suddenly released it, the ear drum popped. Just leave the head or ear phones off for a couple of days and if the discomfort persist, you may need to see your doctor. ...Read more

Trauma?: Either your music was set too loud or the ear plugs are too large if this happens only after listening to music and nothing else. Of course, britney spears' music already irritates me. ...Read more

My ears are ringing after listening to music. Are my ears permanetly damaged, or just temporary?

My ears are ringing after listening to music. Are my ears permanetly damaged, or just temporary?

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
