The Argument Against Headphones

Recently, we have been talking a lot about headphones and hearing loss. I don't want to sit here and preach about it it, but the NY Times recently wrote an article about it and DJ Times re-posted it in their monthly blast. I thought it was important to re-post it up here too. Before you get into the meat of the article, one bit of advise: keep your ears healthy and protect them when you can, you only have one pair and hearing damage is permanent. Quick tip - keep a set of ear plugs with you at all time, you never know when you might end up at a show/event.  So, please click through to read the article:
