Nope.If living healthily affects your hearing, can listening to good music promote your health?
Maybe by listening to music using ultra high end audio kit in a specially designed room will make you healthy? Could even cure AIDS and cancer?
Now let's be real here - there is a such thing as true "audiophile" equipment, which I'd prefer to call high-end audio and video equipment.Nope.
As South Park has shown us, only a large amount of money chopped up in a blender and drank will cure AIDS.
Buying "audiophile" equipment is pretty equivalent to throwing money in a blender, so you might be onto something after all...
I can't tell.Is OP trolling everybody with joke threads like this? Or He actually seriously tried to get good advice to improve our hearing by eating fruits and vegetables?
Best way to improve your hearing is to get a door that locks so that the wife can't nag at you when you want to listen to music.
Some, you could say truly does. Or at least, preys on the gullible who also have money to spare (or don't).I'm worried that audiophile gear is preying on people with pscyhological disturbances.
The latter. I'm not trolling. This thread is serious, well, all of posts I make in the world wide web is serious, unless I mention "I am kidding" with a smiley face in the post.Is OP trolling everybody with joke threads like this? Or He actually seriously tried to get good advice to improve our hearing by eating fruits and vegetables?
Look it up on the internet what healthy foods and avoiding bad foods do to your body, including ears. We know you like eating ice cream and potato chips.Source?

From hearingloss.org:Factors that may damage or lead to loss of the hairs and nerve cells in your inner ear include:
- Aging. Exposure to sounds over the years can damage the cells of your inner ear.
- Heredity. Your genetic makeup may make you more susceptible to ear damage.
- Occupational noises. Jobs where loud noise is a regular part of the working environment, such as farming, construction or factory work, can lead to damage inside your ear.
- Recreational noises. Exposure to explosive noises, such as from firearms and fireworks, can cause immediate, permanent hearing loss. Other recreational activities with dangerously high noise levels include snowmobiling, motorcycling or listening to loud music. Personal music players, such as MP3 players, can cause lasting hearing loss if you turn the volume up high enough to mask the sound of other loud noises, such as those from a lawn mower.
- Some medications. Drugs, such as the antibiotic gentamicin and certain chemotherapy drugs, can damage the inner ear. Temporary effects on your hearing ringing in the ear (tinnitus) or hearing loss can occur if you take very high doses of aspirin, other pain relievers, antimalarial drugs or loop diuretics.
- Some illnesses. Diseases or illnesses that result in high fever, such as meningitis, may damage the cochlea.
From The American Speech Language Association:Three Types of Hearing Loss
- Conductive hearing loss - when hearing loss is due to problems with the ear canal, ear drum, or middle ear and its little bones (the malleus, incus, and stapes).
- Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) - when hearing loss is due to problems of the inner ear, also known as nerve-related hearing loss.
- Mixed hearing loss - refers to a combination of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss. This means that there may be damage in the outer or middle ear and in the inner ear (cochlea) or auditory nerve.
As I had stated in my posts, I think the only truth out of this is as as you said: general health improvements usually bring the benefit of improved moods. That may help you enjoy anything more, or not.It's probably no secret that I -- among quite a few people on this forum -- think that OP is a bit of a crackpot in regard to some of the things he presents, but you could probably construe a modicum of truth out of this. Now, before you start looking like this , I'm not talking about your actual aural capabilities; I mean that a healthy person is most likely more alert and may be capable of enjoying the music more than a tired person.
So, is this going to truly make you enjoy music more? Eh, maybe, but that's probably only if you lead a very unhealthy lifestyle.
Yeah, look up the youtube videos. They're pretty great if you're looking to laugh at crazy people.
Contrary to what most people believe, electrical engineering has nothing to do with audiophilia, and therefore we don't have any meaningless measurements on our website. The closest way to describe the sound is by chemistry because of the way different elements change the sound.
