I have bought a boom headset, I used it for an hour and obviously my ears started to heat up and end up with a lot of sweat. How to avoid these heating up?

  • Ideal mediocre boom headset will not heat this much in an hour. Can you check if it is product defect. Better to replace if it is so. – Joachin Joseph Mar 11 '15 at 7:32

    What is a 'boom headset'? How is it different from a normal headset? And what sort of headset are you using anyway? Over-ear? In-ear? Are you ears getting hot because the headset is getting hot, or due to lack of proper ventilation? – Martin Tournoij Mar 11 '15 at 11:10

Use your over-the-ear boom headset only on a well air conditioned room. For rest of the environment a in-the-ear headset is recommended.


Everyone at my work has headphones like this. They have a simple solution: wear them one ear at a time, and switch ears every 20-30 minutes. I'd also recommend listening to it with both ears until you just start to get uncomfortable, then go one ear at a time until you cool down. I know it's probably not exactly what you're looking for, but it works pretty well.
