We hear about monitoring the usage of television and the internet in regards to young children all the time. What we don't hear a lot of is headphones and hearing. Eardrums can get damaged with prolonged exposure to loud music, and headphones can be the main culprit.

Nice PSA

You're right though, we don't hear many warnings about this anymore. There for a time it used to be a thing, but not lately.

They make headphones that limit how high the volume can go. It always stays within a range that's safe for kids. My girls have some that are made by JBL.

You're right, we don't hear about that at all anymore. I mean I am always telling the kids to take them out, or turn it down. I would hope that more parents are actually paying attention to this.

Speaking of audio equipment, I think earbuds are especially harmful to our ears because of how it's located deeper into the ear compared to headphones. It became a trend due to its convenience but it makes me wonder if hearing problems will rise over the years.

Personally, it's inconvenient to use headphones because they eventually get heavy the longer time you use them. Sometimes, I get a headache from wearing those that using it makes me feel tired faster.
