Definition: air tube headset


A telephone headset without wires near the user's brain. The metal wire in a regular headset cable picks up the electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted from the phone itself as well as ambient EMF in the environment. With an air tube headset, only sound waves reach the user's ears. See headset, electromagnetic radiation and electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
