Pull the right and left ear cups apart from each other. Let them rest in that position for about 24 to 48 hours.
Headphones are one of the most popular types of personal electronics, and millions of people use them every day. However, many people have complained about discomfort from wearing headphones.
This is mostly because headphones press against the head, which can result in pain, headaches, and even long term damage. In this blog post, we’ll explore how to prevent headphones from hurting the top of your head and give you some tips for dealing with headphone-related pain.
How to store your headphones to avoid bruising?
Headphones are an expensive investment that you don’t want damaged. A few simple steps can keep your headphones in great shape.
Do you know how to store your headphones properly? If not, then you risk damaging the headphones as well as bruising your ears.
To avoid damaging your headphones, keep them in their case when not in use. If you overstretch the headband, you risk damaging the headband and potentially the headphones.
If the headphones are plugged in, make sure the vessel is completely dry (some parts may get wet while in use) before placing them in their case.
If you sweat a lot while wearing headphones, wipe off excess water from the headband before storing them.
Wrapped headphones should be wiped off before storing them.
How to stop headphones from hurting head?
Many people complain of ear pain when using headphones. However, this pain can be significantly reduced or eliminated with a few simple adjustments to your headphones.
Use the right sized headphones. Earbuds should be small enough to be comfortable, yet large enough to allow sound to pass through them. Use headphones that are too big, and the pressure on the ear drum can lead to pain.
Headphones should fit snuggly against the ear. If the headphones do not fit properly, circulation of blood around the ear can be impaired and can cause pain.
Use clip-on headphones. Clip-on headphones are easier to put on, take off, and adjust than over-the-ear headphones. The ear pads on these types of headphones should be flexible and comfortable.
Use foam ear plugs. Foam ear plugs can prevent the headphones from pressing on the ear.
Use headphones with noise cancelation. Noise-canceling headphones can make music sound much cleaner, without increasing volume.
How to choose a headphone size for small heads?
If you’re shopping for headphones and you feel like they don’t fit on your head properly, there are a few things that you should consider.
One factor to consider when purchasing headphones is the size of your head. Larger fits will obviously look different than smaller fits.
When you’re shopping for headphones, you can find a list of recommended headphone sizes. These are based on average head sizes, but your actual head size may be a bit larger or smaller than what’s recommended.
You can also measure the circumference of your head using a measuring tape to get the right fit. To find your head size, measure the circumference of your head at the forehead, at the temples, and at the nape of your neck.
Each of these readings should be recorded, then use a calculator to get the average of these three measurements.
How to choose a headphone size for big heads
Not all headphones are created equal. While some are comfortable to wear, others can easily give you a headache.
When you’re shopping for headphones, there are three factors to consider:
1. Earbuds: These headphones are meant for people who only want some simple sound for their music. They are generally also smaller and not meant for long wear.
2. In-Ear headphones: These are headphones that are small enough to fit inside your ears. They are often connected to the audio player through a wire or band that connects to both of the earphones.
3. Over-the-Ear headphones: These are headphones that rest on your head. They can be expensive, but they often come with many more features that other types of headphones.
Earbuds are the smallest type of headphones. They are meant for people who only listen to their music without hearing anything else. They’re usually lightweight because they don’t rest on your head, but they do usually have a cord that connects to your audio player.
In-Ear headphones are smaller and more popular than earbuds. They rest on your ears, and some can rest on the upper or lower part of your ear. They are often connected to audio players with cords, but some models include wireless receivers.
Over-the-Ear headphones are large headphones that fit over your ears. They usually have more features than other types of headphones, are designed to rest on your head, and are often worn for long hours at a time.
How to measure your head to choose a headphone size?
1. Place the measuring tape around the crown of your head, just above your eyebrows.
2. Make sure the measuring tape is snug but not too tight. There should be no more than 1/4″ of space.
3. To determine the size of your headphones, use the measurement you took in Step 1 and multiply it by 25.
For example, if your measurement was 22.5″, your headphones will be a 7.5″ circumaural headphone.
