The Jabra Elite 85t earbuds have run into some challenges, experiencing annoying popping sounds when switching between noise-canceling and ambient modes. Jabra jumps on this problem very quickly by releasing a firmware update that vows to fix these issues.
Jabra Elite 85t Earbuds Issues
This popping issue occurred not only when switching modes but also when removing the right earbud from the ear. The Jabra Elite 85t earbuds firmware can be accessed through Jabra’s Sound+ app.
Another challenge Jabra discovered and fixed was a crackling noise during calls. When disconnecting and reconnecting the earbuds during a call, the result would be a loss of the call audio. Some may want to know, are Bluetooth earbuds safe?
Research studies have discovered that electronic devices such as Bluetooth Earbuds may be damaging to our personal health. This potential danger has caused consumers to become cautious about new technology. Like many electronic devices out today, Bluetooth Earbuds produce EMF radiation. What is EMF radiation?
What is EMF Radiation?
Electromotive force (EMF) is a measurement of the energy that causes current to flow through a circuit. EMF is considered radiation. Scientists believe that there is not enough evidence to state that this is dangerous, but long-term exposure is a concern.
There are two types of EMF, Non-Ionizing Radiation and Ionizing Radiation. Non-ionizing radiation is mild in radiation, and ionizing radiation consists of high-levels of radiation.
The following are examples of them both:
Non-ionizing radiation: microwave ovens, computers, house energy meters, wireless (Wi-Fi) routers, phones, Bluetooth devices, power lines, and MRIs.
Ionizing radiation: ultraviolet light and X-rays.
More and more scientists are beginning to believe that exposure to non-ionizing radiation over long periods of use may cause serious health issues. Is the corporate bottom line worth creating a future health issue?
Many are wondering when their phone gets hot, is that EMF radiation being exposed to our bodies? Are these Bluetooth Earbuds like Jabra Elite 85t really safe? If future generations begin to suffer from a form of ear cancer, the question will be answered.
