Thanks, Copyright.Wearing, perhaps ... or using. But there is a logic problem here: it's not earphones that damage our ears but loud sounds being pumped through them directly into our ears.
And there are different types of earphones, which adds to the equation. So basically you have a sentence that is a bit too general (for me) -- although people will generally get the idea, I suppose.
Thanks, Pete.Sorry, arueng, but earphones do not damage your ears.
What you listen to, at an excessive decibel level, is what does the damage.
