Headphones at night responsible for bad sleep?

    Last night I had a horrible sleep. This is untypical for me. I used headphones for quite a time this night and before go asleep too.
    Today I thought about that Michael Jackson post in the EMF-Series and the sleep apnea...
    Could it be that a exposure over just a evening is responsible for a bad sleep?

    I loaded a EMF-Meter app for my mobile phone and checked between the speakers of my headphones. There were fields up to 11000 mG!

    Please give me a wink if this could be.

    Frying your brains o_O.

    Seriously best not to use the headphones, especially if you are falling asleep in them.

    Bad idea. Headphones are electro-mechanically constructed and your measurement is telling you to avoid them.

    Yeah, i know now. Was really shocked. That is the strongest field i ever measured and so close to my head. But i want to know if it can be that this One Event disturbed my sleep so much.

    Light and this kind of nn-EMF suppress melatonin production immediately. You have to have melatonin at night to sleep properly.
    If you had been trying to sleep with a bright flashlight shining in your face, would it then surprise you that "one event" disturbed your sleep that much?
    This is no different. You just can't see it so you have a harder time believing it. But your meter gave you the answer.

    Oh,ok. This is a good analogy. No wonder why the blublockers dont work.

    A pair of ear phones plugged into a laptop with a 50hz test tone at 50% volume. Yikes!

    Land line phone is not much better.

    The boyfriend calls me every evening at around 8 PM at my land line and we talk for 1-2 hours... so funny to talk to him. I thought land line is way better than cellphone... but somehow it bothered me and felt weirder the longer I talked. Day by day i hated that feeling more that i got from holding the phone to my head. A wired one of course. I then measured it with my trimeter and I got pretty shocked! It is not good at all. No more long talks on the phone for me, thank you :confused:. No wonder my sleep has been no good last 2 nights... :rolleyes:

    A wired speakerphone probably best option

    Yes Neil... I have used the speakers too a bit but they are not so great sadly
    there might be better speaker phones to buy, might need to look into one.
    But I am about to move soon anyways I think and then I can speak with the boyfriend in person... way better :) :) :)

    So switching to air tubes?

    So Im again coming to this thread, because I take measurements again. And I tested headphones with a meter on my laptop and on my guitar effect pedal ( with batteries) and there is no EMF coming out.
    Maybe my measurements from the past are wrong, because this was a phone app.
    My laptop is grounded through the plug, maybe that is a difference, but that only should affect electric fields.
    I get strong signals when I move the earphones or the device in between, but also unplugged.

    What do you measure with?

    ESI-24 from Bernhard Liebl

    I checked my wired phone, too. And the magnetic field goes through the roof on the speaker even with no movement. So the measurement device must doing something right.
    It seems phone calls at night would to more harm than my headphones on a laptop!
    That also shows one time more that one must measure everything as n=1.

    I've been saying it for years.......

    How long will it take to adapt to this information?

    Yeah, go for air-tubes; the radiation should be alot less. The inverse-square law is your friend so use speakers more that air-tubes.
