There are electromagnetic fields also around earbuds, to be honest, but their strength is negligible ....Even then.
I don't need a "scientific source". All earbuds are are little magnets with some copper wire and plastic. The only thing they can do is receive radio waves and generate sound waves. Remember, sound waves are not the same as radio waves.
And this is really all it comes down to.@VideoNewbie: Do some reading on the difference between ionizing radiation and non-ionizing radiation. Don't let media hype about "radiation" and its association with nuclear power (which would be ionizing radiation) leave you in fear of the broad category of commonplace non-ionizing radiation.
If you look around the room you're in right now, everything you see is emitting or reflecting radiation (light is radiation). In fact you're explicitly exposing yourself to radiation in order to read this sentence.
First off LOL at you.... second how did this post get a negative rating?even if the earbud was used during a phone call?
do you have a scientific source that says earphones dont transmit radiation?
Are you kidding? This is MR... the place where people ask which color, size ect ect. If some couldn't come here on MR and ask for direction in their daily lives I believe the membership would shrink due to people dropping like flies. No way to survive without random input from the web.A simple wiki or google search could have answered it for you if you want scientific answers better to do the research yourself than relying on random people on an apple forum.
That's interesting cos' people started getting brain damage & large tumours growing behind there ears right after they were publicly released.Extensive medical studies have shown that cell phones do not emit enough radiation to have any medical impact.
Yes and you have brain cancer. I suggest you make an appointment to torture your PCP... oh you don't believe in modern medicine. Well go make an appointment with your herbalist she can homeopathize you and your cancer will MAGICALLY DIAPER!!!i know all electronic devices emit some kind of radiation but with the earbuds on the iphone being connected to a cellular device would this mean you are assisting to transmit the radiation directly into your head? earbuds reach closer to your brain than say casual use of a cellphone right?
if this is the case would setting the phone on airplane mode while listening to music on your iphone help?
does airplane mode greatly reduce amount of radiation?
I am a doctor radiologist and it annoys me that people say that cell phone radiation does no harm at all. I probably know more about radiation and the human body than any of you. Did you know that x-rays were taught to be completely harmless just as microwave emitted by phones and wifi; for 20 or 30 years they thought x-rays were completely harmless?Perhaps a house built inside a faraday cage too?
I get annoyed with people who freak out about cell phone radiation and they get drunk and then drive, or drive while texting, smoke, take illegal drugs, or abuse prescription drugs, ride motorcycles, don't exercise, etc. These all have much higher proven risk of injury and death than any cell phone (unless you are talking on the cell phone while weaving down the interstate at 80).
If you are seriously worried about the possible radiation from cell phone earbuds just get rid of cell phone and go back to a landline phone, but get a wired phone, not a cordless phone.
It may take another 20 years? Isn't that what was said already? Either way, the OP asked about radiation through the earbuds. True enough, this thread has been sidetracked. Do you have any info about the original question?I am a doctor radiologist and it annoys me that people say that cell phone radiation does no harm at all.

There's a lot of scientific data showing that microwaves emitted by cell phone type radiation affects biological tissues. For example that they cause mutation in sperm? Sperm are probably some of the most sensitive cells in the human body for radiation and this may be why we first detected effects in sperm and not yet other tissues. Noone knows. It may take another 20 years before we really find out what cell phone microwace radiation does.
