Hi. I don’t see much info out there regarding noise canceling headphones and any potential radiation or EMF exposure risks despite these devices being so common. Should we be concerned if using one of these devices when traveling? I was wondering if anyone had any input regarding this topic. Thanks in advance!

Hi Kanders11, welcome to the forum.
If the headphones are wireless there is a possible risk. They will probably be Bluetooth, which uses microwave radiation. There’s a comprehensive article on Bluetooth on the main site here. As far as the noise cancelling mechanism is concerned I really can’t comment but I suspect it is using audio frequencies generated by the headphones, so it may not be a problem. However there will probably be some electronics generating the signal, so there could be an electric or magnetic field from these, depending on exactly how they work. Maybe someone with more knowledge in this field will be able to comment.

While travelling, too much buzzing sound around you which is quite disturbing, so such noise cancelling headphones such as http://www.soundmagic.us/index…..g-headset/ are made to avoid the unnecessary noise and gives the only pleasant sound of hearing. So many people nowadays buy noise cancelling headphones to enjoy music.
