Have a bad effect on people's ears? I mean, yeah it's nice to get to listen to them once in a while, but having to put those earphones the whole day is like creating stress for your ear. You're like practicing to wearing hearing aids when you're older. I don't like wearing earphones because after a few minutes, I don't feel comfortable anymore regardless if the earphone is of good quality and even if I like the songs. I like songs played on real speakers away from my ears. What do you think?

Honestly, I think that if you play them too loud it will cause hearing issues among other things. The type of ear phones used makes a difference. I also dont think they should be worn for long periods of time. Anything in moderation....dl

I think that the earphones do have a bad effect on one's hearing, especially when people turn the earphones up loud. Some of them are just not designed where you can hear what's being sung, or said easily. There are the newer ones that you wrap over your ear, and the actual speaker goes right at your ear. I think though that the best way to enjoy music is lying in bed, and just listening to it from speakers that are in the room.

It's too dangerous if we play it loud through our earphones. Ears are sensitive, Playing loud volume may damage our hearing... So, better play it in a normal volume or much better in a lesser one... ;-)

One of the very reasons why my mom and I would have silly arguments. I play my music too loud. ahahaha! But I love music. And I know how to play it loud too without disturbing others - sometimes on earphones too that's why my hearing's a little clogged. lol. Right now, I try to lessen in playing it loudly to take care of my ears.

Hello laydee. I totally agree with you that to play music on real speakers away from our ears will help protect our ears from wearing "hearing aids". I think that it damages our hearing if we use the earphones so often. I don't feel comfortable if I listen to music this way for some time. I do prefer to use the real speakers. I only use the earphones when I am traveling. Take care, friend.

well, i listen to music a lot to distract myself sometimes from reality or just when im bored or something. yes, in my own point of view, those type of music devices have disadvantages with regards to hearing. i can say this because i play my music a bit loud, but not so loud as to our neighbor hears it! lol ^_^ because of this loud music, my hearing accommodation has raised and i cant even hear a whisper 2 feet away! huhuhu T_T oh well, who's to be blamed but me? hehehe @_@ PS. The widely accepted range of human hearing is 20 Hz to 20 kHz! Happy MYLOTTING! ^_^

no they don't except for some people i've known who turn up volume so loud. i don't know how some people tolerate such high noises. there either dumb or their ears are already messed up.
