Are Bluetooth wireless earbuds harmful to health
« on: September 13, 2018, 08:33:42 PM »
Just curious about the thoughts of others on this.  I just bought and set up 3 days ago a Bluetooth system so I can hear TV through Bluetooth wireless earbuds.  I love these until I read about radiation a few minutes ago.  A couple places say the levels are safe for Bluetooth (1000 times less radiation than cell phones).  But the problem is they are right next to the head and I watch about 2 hours TV a day. 

Regardless of what is said here, I am returning my Bluetooth connect hub and blue tooth headphones now for refund and go back to wired headphones.  I am sometimes impulsive and make a decision based on bad information.  But better safe than sorry?!?

The electromagnetic radiation won't harm you, it's the sound that does. However that goes for all types of earbuds and headphones, not just bluetooth devices. ;)
