Can the earphones "skullcandy" cause cancer?
Report as
Earphones don't emit radioactive or nuclear waves, they are audio waves. No how do I get cancer from headphones of they don't produce harmful radioactive waves? Wouldn't recording artists, producers and sound designers have cancer??? Don't scare people like that. It's simply not true.

Don't worry about cancer-causing headphones. It's the *WIRELESS* part of Wireless Headsets that aid in cancer development.

I dont think so. But supposedly it is. Cause if you have earphones and then you go to sleep, your still listening to music but you dont notice it. So, the mind is still functioning to get the sounds from the music

And my dear you can't get cancer from ANY headphones. They don't emit nuclear or radioactive waves or particles. Just audio waves :) listen loud and worry free!!
Report as
Radioactive/nuclear waves aren't the only thing that causes cancer otherwise only people that were near that stuff would get cancer. But I don't believe at all that headphones could cause cancer unless they were some weird headphones.

I don't think it's safe.Because the phone is radioactive.In my opinion,you may as well close the phone when you are slepping.

If it's not too loud and your cord won't choke you, you will be alright. When I was having sleeping problems my doctor told me to listen to music while I sleep. And it's worked like a charm.

I don't think so. I know that there is tiny hair-like stuff in your ear and that if it bends down from the bass to a certain extent then you could lose some hearing.

Well, I would never do it. The headphone speakers work like phone speakers, generating ultrasonic waves and radio frequencies. There has been research and studies on the subject, and it is revealed that people who use their cell phones more often than people who hardly ever use their cell phones tend to develop brain cancer. Scientists think this may be because the ultrasonic waves disrupt the structure of DNA. However, the theory was dismissed when the Health Department thought it was too weak to do any harm. I disagree with this because as weak as it may be, when used for an extended period of time or after repeated use, the structure of the DNA is likely to change, thus causing brain cancer.

So, no, I don't think for one second that it's safe to sleep with headphones on.

Well every minute you spend listening to music through earphones you do lose brain cells. And when you are sleeping noises can " bug" your body while its sleeping, because when you sleep your body repairs everything that got damaged from the day before, and a few other things so when you have noises it basically interrupts that process and you dont get the best sleep you can get. so if you want make sure its really low.

Its impossible to loose brain cells idiot, you can loose connections between neurons but you regrow thousands of them every day and maybe its just me but i've never heard of any serious problems caused by earphones, the only tech problems they have is to stop working

I wouldn't sleep with headphones in my ears or on my ears. I sleep just fine without any music & I wouldn't be able to sleep anyway. It's better to have ear plugs if you don't want to hear any loud noise like barking dogs.

Nope...
It is very dangerous if we use headphones during sleep or in everyday life.
Already we all know that continuous use of head phones causes problem to our ear.
The main problem reported by scientists is that the production of bacteria inside our ear multiplies and this causes so many infections.
So i suggest, please don't use headphones too much...not during everyday...nor during sleeping....

thank you all

I have often had headphones on during sleep and they hurt a lot when you wake up in the morning and stay like that for a few hours. So, 'no' is the answer

Best case scenario: Don't turn them too loud, otherwise, yes, listening to loud headphones all night will damage your hearing. If once in a while, temporarily. If frequently, probably permanent damage. Think about how you can't hear well after a loud concert. repetitively listening to loud music makes your eardrums less sensitive to sound.

Worst case scenario: Smoke alarm goes off. You can't hear it because of your headphones. By the time the smoke wakes you up, it's too late to get out of the fire, so you, and anyone you could have saved from the ravaging fiery inferno die.
