can headphones ruin my hair (serious question)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I've notice that the headphones create sort of hollow in the hair because of the headband of the headphones (I'm using ATH-m50x) Can it cause the hairs to grown unnaturally in a different manner / direction because the headband is like "crashing" the hair ?

Just wondering how do you know, is there an article or something about it ?

look at queen elizabeth II - she wears headscarfs (and hats) all the time - as do millions of people. in addition - people flattening their hair everyday are motorbike riders + divers + every person in a uniform. 

 

maybe you should look into in-ear if you are really worried ;) 

 

ps: ask your hairstylist for advice

Just get a wig for the periods you're not wearing headphones.

I don't think so... headbands doesn't have enough pressure to cause that much of an effect. :) don't worry... if that was a real issue you'd have heard it from everyone right now..

The worst effects helmets have had on hair are:

1. Lice (The mods will delete this, because politics are verboten, and it's hard to discuss history without anything political in it)

2. "Ridiculous" hairstyles that will (The mods will delete this, because politics are verboten, and it's hard to discuss history without anything political in it)

All that was for helmets, which covered a lot more surface area and used in more hazardous environments where the wearer is exposed to stuff like chemicals and sharp objects like spears. The worst thing headphones can do to one's hair is to snag hair and pull some out every time they are taken off. Before anyone finds that alarming, note and observe how much hair the ladies in your houses leave on their hairbrush or the bath/shower drain. It would have to be hair taken off the same spot for a headphone to cause a visible bald spot.

yes. your hair will fall out and you will start balding earlier. don't trust these headphone enthusiasts, they will lie through their teeth to hid this pandemic problem inherent with full-sized headphones.

 

source: no scientific source, but I know it's true. I can just tell. I trust my ears.

Perhaps a wig that has headphones built in? :wink_face:

 

In our age of science, one should not have to choose between things like that...

Yes, it is very dangerous <D However as all problem it can be solved, I just happened to have special audiophile shampoo and hair gel which will protect your hair from cruel effects of headband usage and also improves sonic performance. After using this combo surely soundstage timbre and realism of all my headphones dramatically improved :D

 

If purchased together, combo price would be $335 on discount.

 

Thanks
