Streamer finds dent on his head made by wearing headphones

A Twitch streamer was shocked after he found an indent on his head during a live stream that he  was doing for charity.

Twitch is a popular live-streaming platform that people primarily use for gaming, music, and many more. The video clip of the streamer and his head indent became viral on Twitter. The video now has millions of views on the platform.

The streamer, Curtoss, had a livestream that was said he conducted in order to raise money for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. As seen in the video, he was shaving the middle part of his head when he noticed the indent.

“Dude, the shaver’s working like a champ,” the streamer said before getting shocked about what he  was about to find in his head.

As he touched the indent on his head, the streamer realized that that’s was where his headphones went. He thought that it was just his hair.

“I thought that was just my hair. I thought just my hair did that,” the streamer said.

As the video of the streamer went viral, it also received different views and reactions from Twitter users.

Here are some reactions of online users on Twitter after watching the video clip:

But, on a serious note, what do studies say about this incident?

Based on a research that was published in the National Library of Medicine, it will need around at least 135 kg to create a minor fracture to a person’s skull–somewhat of an assurance that using headphones will not alter a person’s head. However, people can indeed get dents that are temporary, reverting back to normal after a short period of time. People should actually be more worried about their ears in prolonged usage of earphones, as this can cause permanent loss of hearing for people. According to the World Health Organization, over a billion people from the ages of 12 to 35 risk hearing loss because of extended and too much exposure to loud music and other sounds. The organization added that this has detrimental impacts or consequences in terms of people’s health, education, and even their employment.

People should also only use their headphones for 90 minutes every day, according to experts, with the volume set at max of 80 percent.
