Numerous buyers might have fears regarding the safety of using Bluetooth headphones. Can the volume levels affect your eardrums? Are the radio waves emitted from the Bluetooth stereo dangerous?
As with all mobile listening gadgets, wireless headsets shouldn't be utilized at high volume levels. Studies show that earbuds are a lot more likely to trigger hearing problems compared to traditional headphones. Earbuds have the possibility to cause much more damage as they rest quite near to the eardrums. High volume levels make you less aware of your surroundings. This is especially true of earphones which serve as ear plugs to the rest of the world.
In order to safely employ headsets, you must decrease the sound level and time period of usage. Medical professionals typically suggest to use headsets that do a much better job blocking out background noise so that you will not be as influenced to crank up the volume level. Many well-known models of Bluetooth headsets, just like the Jaybird JF3 and the Sony DRBT100CX are made to make a seal inside your ear canal to efficiently block out background sound.
Bluetooth is a kind of wireless communication. What this means is it sends out some form of radiation, just like all things that communicate wirelessly such as your mobile phone or wireless internet router. The concern about Bluetooth headphones is the Bluetooth radio is situated really near to the wearer's head, thus providing the sense that the radiation has a more direct influence on the user rather than, Bluetooth keyboard.
Are Bluetooth headsets dangerous? The Canadian governments and US have established a highest specific assimilation speed, or SAR, of 1.6 for all consumer wireless gadgets. Basically, that's the upper limit of radiation a unit can provide to be considered appropriate. An average Bluetooth radio module produces a SAR of only 0.001 watts for every kilogram. It is well under the levels of a cellphone and an insignificant amount on the SAR scale. This is because Bluetooth is a very low power and also short-range wireless communication standard. Think about the distance a cellular phone signal should travel in order to make it to the nearest mobile tower. Compare that to the small distance Bluetooth signals could travel. It can therefore be concluded that radiation from Bluetooth headsets is insignificant and shouldn't be a problem.
It is clear that the volume levels coming from wireless earphones pose a greater risk to your security and health than radiation emission. Like with any kind of consumer electronics device, proper use is always the best way to guarantee security.
