Hello Crunchyroll. I'm here today to bring you all some of my embarrassment and suffering. (I hear you guys like that)

Anyway, it's pretty common for friends to share headphones, but that's always been something i was uncomfortable with. The reasons for this being i do not want their ear wax and i do not want to give them my ear wax either. Well.... i screwed up today.

I would like to first and foremost say that i am a person of good hygiene and regularly clean my ears.....except for today and yesterday.

Today a friend of mine offered me their headphones in order to show me a video. The usual deal. This time i accepted, which is quite unlike me. When i returned the headphones my eyes immediately focused upon a black speck which was now upon them. My heart had stopped. She hadn't noticed the speck as of yet, but it was only a matter of time. When the time came she simply wiped it off. I felt so embarrassed. Then she proceeded to use only one of the earbuds the entire time. I want to cry.




tl;dr I borrowed headphones, left a "present" and now i'm really embarrassed because they (obviously) would not continue using that earbud.

Thus i would propose the question: How do you guys feel about sharing headphones. How do you feel about ears. How do you feel about earwax.

that's really funny the part where she wouldn't use that other earbud had me in tears...


I would share headphones, but not earphones. it feels like i'm having indirect earsex with them.

I have a splitter and set of new dollar store ear phones in my pack.. I don't like sharing unless we're very. Very close... I usually give the cheap set away.

I've shared my earbuds twice in my life, which that's never happening again, and I've used someone elses once in my life which will also never happen again.
It was 7th grade in middle school, someone I liked wanted me to watch a video with them in class so we shared my pair, afterwards, I just caught a glimpse of the inside of their ear and... safe to say that pair of earbuds found itself in the garbage later. Second time, my sister's ex begged for a while until I gave in to the annoyance and lended them to him.
The case where I used someone elses was also with someone I liked, but their pair looked clean, Honestly snuck a peek in their ear and everything checked out alright, so I gave them a quick wipe and used them.
If you see someone who's really pretty/handsome and the inside of their nose or ears are filthy, what would you do? I never say anything unless it's coming out. Back in elementary school, this guy named Alex had the worst hygiene(teeth, ears and nose), he always tried to talk to me until I burst out and complained about his breathe, for the next few days, he'd always cover his mouth when he talked to me, I felt so bad, but it was so nasty, I couldn't do it. Not to add insult to injury, but the inside of ears and nose were just I've always had sanitary issues with those 2 specific spots after talking to him.

Nobody touches my headphones, nobody. They are mine and I love them, I don't want anyone else stealing their soul.

Oh I feel ya. I don't like it either. I do share my earbuds sometimes, but I have the type of earbuds that has the kind of squishy cover that comes off, and I always try to wash them after someone else uses them.

I hate sharing earbuds. It's disgusting and unpleasant to deal with. Would you really want someone else's earwax to enter your own ears? No! Hell no, no no Nono nooooooo!

I hate sharing in-ear earphones, although one of my friends does it every now and again (better that she's a girl than a guy, but still >_> )

The only people I'd share ear phones with are the same people I'd share drinks and food with. Then again, those people don't produce that much earwax. I've never noticed my earwax on them after using them either.

I probably wouldn't share earphones with anyone, because of the wax factor, i've tried swabbing the gunk out of my current pair of earphones that i use publicly because i don't want my headphones to get stolen, but I've been unsucessful in fully ridding the inner parts of the buds of wax, so i don't share them with anyone. The idea of swapping earwax is pretty repulsive. And earwax collects in earphones like crazy, it doesn't matter what you do, it always somehow worms its way in there.

As for my headphones, I have a cheaper pair that I'm willing to lend to people under the condition that they don't sweat too much, but my expensive pair is for my usage alone.
