Headphones For The Music Lovers

By Christy Murphy

The electronic gadgets in the market have proliferated in the market from media players to phones to palmtops and personal computers. Headphones have virtually become an essential accessory to all these devices. Those who use headphones, invariably use them for long hours. This could lead to hearing impairment, temporary or permanent, especially if the volume is high. When the outside noise is high, quite often listeners tend to increase the volume to drown out the outside noise. This could be the case in a subway, an aircraft, traffic or large crowds. With higher volumes, the normal pain that one has with high volume tends to disappear giving a false indication. Higher level volume for long duration damages the ear. About 5 percent of the headphone users stand to face this risk. Appropriate safety warning on products has been suggested. But this has not found favor amongst manufacturers and users.

Risk to hearing impairment is lower with in-ear headphones as well as canal phones. External noise is blocked in this type of headphones with its noise isolation properties of the on-ear seal. The need to increase the volume to drown external noise does not arise. Restrictions have been placed in some countries on using headphones while driving vehicles and this may include earphones in one ear. With headphones on, the drivers of vehicles could miss out hearing critical external sound as car horn, and may lose the sense of awareness of the surroundings. This increases the risk of accidents. It is necessary that one keeps the earphone at a low volume or not use it at all during other activities that require one to do so.

A number of companies manufacture headphones for DJs, professionals and Call Centers. There come in many models, styles and designs. The more reputed companies manufacturing headphones include AKG, Sennheiser, Grado, Bose and Sony. Sennheiser produces wired and wireless headphones as well as in-ear, mini and high definition headphones. The wired headphones manufactured by this company for instance include Sennheiser CX300 earphones, Sennheiser CX6, Sennheiser CX 500, Sennheiser CX 400, Sennheiser HD800, Sennheiser HD650, Sennheiser RS120 and Sennheiser PX 100. Details of all these products are found in the Internet. It is also possible to buy online.

Headphones were first introduced by Sony with their Walkmans. Headphones have become commonly used with a variety of devices such as radio, Discmans, CD player, audio amplifier, portable DVD players, Computers, DAT recorders, home theater, mobile phone, MP3s, iPhones and iPods.

In today’s generation, various companies have manufactured a lot of gadgets for the sake of pleasure. But, health is wealth and so people should always use these gadgets appropriately.
