News reported on 1 particular headphone design which channels the sound nearer to the drum. 1 example is the sexy apple ear phone which do not have the so-called unsightly sponge cotton outside.

try canalphones that stick deep into your ear. it allows you to listen to your music on a lower volume while blocking out external sounds. beware, don't use it while jogging on the road.

I agree. I attribute my deteriorating eyesight solely to that

well headphones when playing loud music no matter what kind will affect your hearing as the sounds waves are blasted full force onto your ear drums.

Canalphones may be a nice concept but imagine the dirt and wax you will find on them after some use. Yucks. I'd rather use large headphones which cover the ear.

Essentially any loud noise does this. For instance, playing a jazz drum set regularly without ear plugs will cause a noticable loss in hearing after about 2-3 yrs.

Sexy??? Apple's vanilla plain white ear plugs?? Sexy??? heheh.. By the way, they do come with the sponge but up to you to cover the plug or not. If you don't clean your ear of its wax often...best to cover THEM!..if the was start to enter the small holes of the plugs..that will compromise the sound.. EKKK disgusting too.

Want to see sex....check out the Shure ear plus..or the B&O. Those are sexy!..but cost the world to buy them.

Tell me about it...every now and again I could hear one of this "wannabe-deaf-when-I-am-older" fools on the MRT. I can be like 10 people distance from them and I can still hear their music emiting from their plug-in type headsets!. Good luck to them.

If you have to hear it that loub and you don't know about it...you have serious problem that is not going to happen one day. It is already happening today!
