Is there any reason at all that I should avoid putting my headphones on my subwoofer for extended periods of time?
I avoid placing my computer and tablet on it for reasons of the hard drive but not sure about the headphones. I am getting a really nice (to me) pair and dont want to take any chances with them.
This is probably a stupid question but I just want absolute confirmation for peace of mind.
Thanks guys. smile.gif

Actually the magnetic field from a subwoofer would not be strong enough to affect any of the computer components so you should be fine placing your pc on the sub when it isn't on. The vibrations from the sub could damage the hard drive, though. As for the headphones, I leave mine on my sub sometimes and haven't had any issues.

I have my turntable on my speakers eek.gif Haven't had any issues. Placing headphones on subwoofer is fine but don't put your computer on it unless you want your HDD to break.
