Closed headphones = bad for you?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I heard this somewhere that closed headphones if you listen to them too long it is bad for you. Is this true?

Overall, closed headphones would be safer because you wouldn't have to turn up the music to drown out background noise.

Well, there is the specualtion of how the sound bounces inside of closed cans, or how there is no airflow, etc. Most of this if not all is a bunch of specualtion, and I believe none of it. Rememerb that volume is volume, and that if a cartain db is reaching your ear, and it is safe, it changes nothing about the distance of the driver, or the bouncing of sound.


Sorry.. That makes very little sense.

No, basically!

All headphones are bad. There are some people that would probably blast the volume even if you gave them IEMs.

Lack of common sense is what's bad for people.

Just about anything can be bad for you if done in excess. As mentioned earlier, use common sense and listen at low levels and closed cans will not harm you.
