Do you use headphones or earphones to listen to music or watch videos?

Do you know that the use of headphones can change our mental perceptions and decisions?

This was revealed in a medical study conducted in the United States.

Research from the University of California has shown that the use of headphones not only affects the listener’s sense of hearing but also the mind more than ordinary speakers because it sends sounds ‘inside the head’.

Researchers say that headphone speakers transmit sound as if it were inside your head.

As a result, listeners feel closer to the communicator (person who sings or speaks on headphones) physically and socially, and have a more sympathetic attitude towards them, he said.

According to researchers, these findings will have a significant impact on training programs, advertising and home work.

The study involved experiments and surveys involving more than 4,000 people and found that the effect of headphones on listeners’ perceptions, decisions and attitudes is much stronger than that of ordinary speakers.

Institutions can design their own training programs based on this research, he said.

For example, they may encourage employees to listen to safety training on headphones, which could potentially change their behavior for the better.

Researchers say that headphones also help listeners stay engaged and that they can connect with specific critics or bloggers.

The results of this study were soon published in the journal Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Process.
