Ipod Radiation? - nobjockey - 08-30-2006

I want to know peoples thoughts on this. Anyone heard of radiation been given off by ipods? I'm a van driver & listen to all my files on it at work. I figure it should be ok considering the headphones are just mini speakers & not a type of microwave emitter but not 100%.

Cheers.

What kind of radiation could a hard drive with speakers give off? I don't know where you heard this, but it's probably bull. the reason cell phones give off radiation is because of the radio frequency they give off. I'm pretty sure most of them are in the 1.7 GHz range. Ipod's don't have anything like that.

That depends on how technical you want to get. All radios are shut off in airplane mode (is is possible to turn WiFi on while in airplane mode, thou[/size]gh), so the radiation one normally associates with cell phones stops being emanated. The ipod is still an electronic device and will continue to emanate some RF as well as visible light (when the display is on), which are both technically "radiation".

The ipod produces radiation by using the internet & bluetooth, any form of wireless devices in your ipod give of radiation.

First, define radiation.
Technically the buildup and collapse of the electrical energy within your headphone or earbud coils produces radiation.
