How long do you use earphones/ earpiece in a day?

Earplugs/earphones/earbuds/earpiece play a vital role in our life in this modern world. We use them to listen to our favorite music and podcasts, to participate in Zoom calls, and to watch shows or movies.
The usage of earphone ranges between different age groups:- Toddlers, older adults, and everyone in between.

However, continuous and daily usage of earphones can pose serious health risk such as bacterial infection and hearing loss to us. Hence it is important for us to use them wisely.
Audiologists recommend listening to audio at 60% or below of the maximum volume of our devices. 
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that people limit their exposure to loud sounds, including music played through headphones, to not more than one hour per day. This is because loud sounds can damage the sensitive hair cells in the inner ear, which can lead to hearing loss.

It is also important that you take regular breaks without long hours of usage of earphones to enable the ear to rest.

While headphones add convenience and enjoyment to our daily lives, being aware of the potential risks to our hearing health and using them responsibly is crucial to keeping our ears happy in the long term.
