Are there any health risks in earbuds?
Assuming moderate use (say, no more than 1-2 hours a day) of music that is not overly loud - e.g. no heavy metal but some classic rock on their MP3 players - is there any health related reason to force children to listen to music from a speaker vs earbuds?
Just to clarify - these are their separate personal earbuds at home; so there's no hygienic concern at all.
Merely physical effect on the ear from the earbud being there; or effect on hearing.
