Wearing Headphones and increase of bacteria in ear


Wearing headphone is not bad but wearing it for more than 30 minutes at a time is bad for the ears.

When you put on headphones, you cover your ears from the natural air, which increases production of bacteria by 700% in 1hr. Your ear drum naturally can not bear influx of bacteria in that quantity so it starts to react by paining or hearing loss in long term.

Secondly, when you are listening to fast music/ high beat sound which goes direct to your brain due to headphones, it affects the fine tissue of the brain eventually listener becomes hyper or excited which is bad in long run.

But what about streamers? They stream for 3/4 hrs straight wearing headphones and playing games.

Yea they might have consequences later in life. I even have experienced itchy ear due to over use of earphones/ Headphones. I literally use whole day, even there is no sound in earphones/ headphones. 😅

That itchy feeling in your ear may be due to poor quality headphone?
I also use headphone for entire day, but i don't get tha itchy feeling.

bro you  need to understand that this topic is not false. It has been scientifically proven.

And about the streamers they will have problems in the future if they don't care about their hygiene properly. If you don't trust this topic then you can google yourself on this matter.

It increases the bacteria and it might be doing wrong in your ears. It doesn't show result in present time but have a consequences on longer term. It has been proven scientifically and doctors also use to say this.

Yes, @bakai found out it really affects the ear through where many other big disease also occur if the ear is left as initial.

I agree with your Fact
But we can clean the Bacteria which is of course Ear Wax

So if u use earphone/headphone you should keep your ear clean so that you don't get any disease such as 

Perforated eardrum

Mastoiditis etc

Yea you have to clean on regular basis otherwise consequences can be shown earlier.

I mean to say is that, even you clean on regular basis, the bacteria formed in that time frame will damage the little bit of portion in the ear and little by little, it will have effect on long term.
