I am 47 and and had a translab surgery for AN on left side (resulting in SSD). I want to protect hearing on my right side and am curious about noise canceling devices such as Bose and Air pods. Are these safe for long term use? Appreciate any inputs or experience. Thanks
My ENT doctor has assured me that using noise canceling devices such as the air pods are safe for long term use. He claims the research literature supports that.
I am still a little skeptical, and I am keeping anything which generates Bluetooth or ElectroMagnetic Frequencies away from my brain. I would rather be safe than sorry. But I do not have any evidence to support my anxiety. If the medical literature is correct, you are probably fine with using the noise canceling devices for the long term.
Maybe someone else in the ANA community has more insight than I do.
Best wishes on your future!
Many people have gone back to wired Apple earbuds to remove the real or perceived risk of Bluetooth exposure. A few other benefits:
- You never have to charge them
- They are only $20
- Hard to lose compared to Bluetooth buds
- It’s obvious when you have them on due to the visible wires, so people don’t bother you!
