Against Headphones

This newspaper article argues against the widespread use of headphones.  It describes how the original intended use of headphones was not for isolation.  The author argues that sounds should exist in their natural “audio habitat” and be a social experience rather than cut one off from the rest of the world.  She also mentions how headphones damage teenagers’ hearing, citing it as the primary danger of digital culture.
