I have heard this many times, sometimes worded as such:

Wearing headphones for just an hour will increase the bacteria in your ears by 700 times

I'm wondering, is this true and, if so, does it pausepose a threat?

I have heard this many times and I just googled it to see if such a thinking is there in other countries as well.

My question specifically is that are there any studies to see if, sometimes worded as such:

  1. Bacteria count really increases?
  2. The increased bacteria can cause damage to ears or brain or something else (considering that not all bacteria are bad)?
