About a year ago someone told me about how damaging headphones can be. Damage to your ears is basically permanent and news articles and other things also came out saying how ipods, and other mp3 users should beware of using headphones too much.
After getting this info from almost every where I went that week, I decided it probably would be a good idea to stop using headphones. haha But my love for music was too strong and a couple weeks later i was using head phones again.
Today in my physics lecture, (yes. im taking physics during the summer x . x *kill me now*), we were learning about sound waves and about how humans can hear frequencies from 20 to 20,000 Hz. Our professor brought out a machine and let us listen to the frequency range. Not everyone could hear the higher frequencies, but most went pretty far.
So after using headphones since the 7th grade (FYI a whopping total of 7 years), how damaged have by ears become?
Damaged to the point where I couldn't hear anything after a frequency of 11,000 Hz!!! O.O!! In other words. I've already lost about half of my hearing from my head phone use...... My best friend Ty, haha..ahh he heard everything pretty much and shook his head at me... tsk tsk tsk
Oh and you know those tuning forks that doctors will whack on a table and then ask you when you stop hearing it as he/she puts it behind your ears? .. yeah .. iiiiiiiiiii didn't know well with those either. 5 seconds after my friend whacked it and tried to put it behind my ear i couldn't hear it anymore. haha.
Aww man.. can i really give up DBSK, Utada Hikaru, Linkin Park, Fort Minor, N.E.R.D, and OMG! BOA!!!!! >.<
I'm still thinking. How 'bout you?
