People with full hearing ability, partial hearing ability, and non-hearing persons, can all sense vibrations created by sound. These vibrations do not need to necessarily enter through the ears and can enter at different receptive points in the body. The ears simply represent one of the pathways through which the body absorbs sound and vibration, and partially deaf and deaf persons can appreciate rhythm and feel emotions evoked by sound frequencies perceived through their bodies.
The same is true for binaural beats, a process that synchronizes the right and left sides of the brain at the same frequency, enabling the user to experience the benefits of a meditative state through a specially designed blueprint of sound frequencies. Deaf people are also able to experience the same benefits as a hearing person, such as relaxation, pain relief, and higher consciousness.
Tests have shown that over-the-ear earphones can be placed directly over the ears for persons who can sense some sound or at a non-ear location for people with complete hearing loss, in which case you can try to place the earphones slightly above or just behind the ears, approximately one inch above and slightly behind each ear. Adjust the volume as needed for maximum comfort.
Another earphone placement option is over the neck arteries, after first identifying the pulsation of the veins and then placing the over-the-ear headphones over that specific area.
If you are partially deaf in one ear and have full hearing in the other, you may want to continue using headphones as normal. However, if you are partially deaf in both ears, or completely deaf, then you may want to experiment with the non-ear locations.
