If you're 28 and don't have mild tinnitus you're a fucking pussy.

Eat balanced meals, don't drink, go to bed early. Just fucking die, alright?

I was speaking generally..not directly, when I said "YOU". Most seem to have understood that..except you.

And, breaking it down so you can understand what I meant..which most seem to have understood, too..headphones ARE NOT bad for you..the problem is you are playing music / sounds through them at too high a volume/gain. All you need to do is turn things down a little and headphones are just fine.

Your OP is flawed, because if you apply the same logic, then you can say the same about speakers / monitors..and even the human voice. In fact, you can say ANY sound is bad for you is you listen to it at too high a level!

So, once again..just in case you didn't understand fully the first time..

HEADPHONES ARE NOT BAD..THEY DO NOT CAUSE DAMAGE..THE PERSON USING THEM CAUSES THE DAMAGE BY PLAYING SHIT THROUGH THEM AT TOO HIGH A LEVEL.

Gonna leave this here..

I'm guessing s/he meant well in what s/he posted..they just didn't think about it too much before they did is all.

Also, remember some of us "put our foot in it" when we first joined, myself included. In fact, I don't think I remember anyone who joined after me who did or said anything nearly as dumb as I did when I first join..or maybe the subject's a little "too close to home" for me to be objective about it.

Damage my headphones? Damage the foundation of my home? My marriage?
PLEASE TELL ME!!!

I find it best to tell people in my home that I am putting my headphones on and doing music stuff so they don't get upset at my not answering. Closed headphones can defiantly make it hard to hear people and other sounds (that's why I got them yo).

I'm going to assume you are talking about my hearing - The big issue with headphones is how close they are to your ears. Pretty close really. We can effectively say the sound is happening at your ears. Thing is, nearfield monitors are pretty damn close to your head as well. The solution is the same - don't play stuff at volumes that are going to damage your hearing. If you need to monitor loudly to test something - only do it for a very short time.

Is your next useful advice for life post coming soon? Should I look both ways before crossing the street or is that optional? What should I do in the event of an earthquake or other natural disaster?
