what is the correct way to use a ipod so that we can enjoy music on the move and not do bad to our health. Will listening to music with earphones on for about 7-8 hours at a streach a day do bad to my health. i have suddenly bcome so scared . Sometimes i start getting a headache n i come to know that its time to put off my ipod.

It would probably have more to do with the volume of the music rather than the length of time you are listening to it, although I can't imagine that having it on for 7-8 hours a day is very healthy anyways. I only listen to my iPod while working out and on the train commute if I am not reading a newspaper... so less than 3 hours a day and certainly not consecutively. Just use lower volumes and take breaks; having continuous sound pulsating into your ear through tiny speakers is probably left for moderation.
