Carter 1 Oswald Carter Ms.Ruiz English 104 October 17, 2010 Safely Using Headphones and Earbuds People often listen to sound from their computers or portable devices through headphones or earbuds. Headphones cover or are placed outside of the ear, whereas earbuds rest inside the ear canal. The features of certain headphones and earbuds can help to prevent hearing loss. Higher- quality headphones and earbuds tend to produce a clearer sound, enabling wearers to listen at a lower volume. [TuM17] Properly designed headphones should have a close fit for optimal listening. Similarly, earbuds should seal tightly in the ear canal of the person wearing the device. Headphones and earbuds also should include noise-cancelling technology. 1 The volume level of the sound that transmits from headphones or earbuds into the ear of a person wearing this type of device has been linked to hearing loss. The volume should be set low enough that other people nearby cannot hear the sound being transmitted. The quieter the sounds, the less possibility of hearing damage.
