Why are people fascinated by the AirPods?
AirPods can be used to make calls while your phone is in your pocket or lies in the proximity of the connection to the AirPods. It has an embedded microphone which filters background noise and also has built-in accelerometers and optical sensors for detecting taps and pinches. These qualities reduce the burden of carrying your phone along all the time.
Can AirPods make you deaf?
The big concern here is if AirPods can make the user deaf. A normal conversation is between 60 to 70 decibels. The maximum noise the ear can withstand is 85 decibels.
Anything beyond 85 decibels, can damage your hearing thus, rendering you unable to hear. Aside from ageing, illness or heredity, constant and prolonged use of the AirPod coupled with loud music can cause damage to your eardrums and make you prone to deaf.
It is advised to lower the volume when listening to music with the AirPod and limit its usage all the time.
