Apple’s AirPods Pro and other wireless headphones emit small amounts of radio-frequency radiation. So do cellphones.
Scientists still aren’t sure if the dose is enough to harm us, and the studies they’ve done so far suggest that radiation from cellphones (which is a far greater amount than what Bluetooth devices emit) isn’t leading to more cancer.
The evidence we have so far suggests that consumers should probably be more worried about jamming something noisy into their ear canals every day than the radiation those devices emit.
If you’ve been on the internet lately, you might’ve heard that you should be worried about how Bluetooth headphones, such as Apple’s $250 AirPods Pro, are affecting your risk of developing cancer.
The short answer: Everybody, calm down. There’s nothing especially harmful about Bluetooth radiation compared with other electronic devices. Still, like many of the other electronics that surround us, scientists can’t say for sure this wireless technology is 100% harm-free.
The hubbub stems largely from a Medium blog post that came out earlier this year. The post cites Jerry Phillips, a biochemist who has studied DNA damage from electromagnetic fields.
