Let’s cut to the chase. Bluetooth headphones have several advantages. Whether it is the ease of use, low interference, or improving your productivity, you would have certainly experienced its many benefits, first-hand. But are Bluetooth headphones safe? Can listening to your favourite song on a Bluetooth headphone come with health risks? Let’s debunk the myths, shall we?
We have all heard about the negative effects of radiation. There is no conclusive data available so far on exposure to radiation from mobile phone causing adverse health effects. In fact, there are a number of studies underway, especially in relation to mobile phones.
However, is Bluetooth radiation similar to cell phone radiation? How much radiation is safe, really? Let us look at all these questions in detail.
First up, cell phones need to transmit signals to an antenna located several kilometres away. When it comes to Bluetooth headsets, however, things are a little different. The signals need to reach only as far as your cell phone, which may be in your pocket. Most Bluetooth headphones, therefore, are classified as Class 2 devices. While Class 1 devices have a range that extends up to 300 feet, Class 2 devices have a 30-foot radius. This means that the radiation emitted by Bluetooth headphones is far lower than those emitted by cell phones. A typical Bluetooth headset is known to generate a SAR of just 0.001 W/kg, far below that emitted by the cell phone antenna, which can be as high as 1.6 W/kg.
Truly then, if using a cell phone is a necessity and if you are concerned about limiting your radiofrequency exposure, the use of a Bluetooth headphone can go a long way in meeting your objectives.
Let’s been honest, you’ve glanced a couple of times at your phone while stuck at serpentine traffic hold-ups. Holding a cell phone and answering calls can distract you in more ways than one.
We strongly urge that the safest thing to do is to switch on the DND on your phone. At the end of the day, lives matter!
However, a Bluetooth headphone can help ensure that your eyes are on the road, and your hands remain on the steering wheel. It gives you a hands-free experience that is invaluable when it comes to driving. With your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel, you aren’t compromising your safety whilst you answer that phone call. The PLAYGO Wireless Audio Devices are also integrated with AI voice assistants. So, you can have your text messages and notifications readout without compromising your safety and the safety of others.
We are no experts in road rules, some places have strict regulations also against handsfree calling, so make sure you know the rules in your own localities.
To answer your question. On account of health risk due to radiation or safety concerns raised by the usage of cell phones. Bluetooth headphones go a long way in mitigating these risks. Here’s to your safety and wellness!
