Wireless headphones have become a popular smartphone accessory. They are convenient and easy to use, and save users the constant hassle of untangling wires. However, the accessory can have a negative impact on human health.
In an interview with the Prime agency, Anton Kukanov, head of the Roskachestvo Center for Digital Expertise, said that wireless headphones, like other similar devices, are a source of non-ionizing radiation, the so-called low-frequency electromagnetic field. At the same time, there is no exact evidence of harm to human health yet.
In addition, this radiation is several times less than that from mobile phones. Therefore, using headphones is safer than holding a smartphone to your ear. And for those who still fear for their health, Kukanov recommends limiting the time of using the accessory and not falling asleep with them in their ears.
Another obvious danger of earbuds is loud noise, which can negatively affect your hearing, especially with frequent and prolonged use. Loud music damages hearing cells and can lead to hearing loss. To avoid this, do not use the headphones for more than three hours a day. You should also listen to music not at maximum volume and no more than two hours in a row.
Earlier, Elvina Nasibulina, an analyst-researcher of digital products of Roskachestvo, spoke about the dangers of wireless charging. It turned out that with such a charge, the smartphone's battery can wear out faster, but not much. The expert also recommends not using wired and wireless chargers at the same time, as in this case the battery overheats.
