Apex Legends streamer reveals insane reason he uses earbuds instead of earphones

Brother Enoch is a popular Twitch streamer with over 60,000 followers on the streaming platform. He predominantly plays Apex Legends and had us in stitches after he posted a Tiktok video explaining why he uses earbuds instead of headphones.

It's clear that his priorities are in check, given the sheer volume of time he dedicates to playing the game. On the other hand, we can't help but think that his reasoning is a little off.

Twitch streamer plays Apex Legends for 10-14 hours a day

Brother Enoch posted a Tiktok video where he explained the reason why he uses earbuds instead of headphones. The reason is both hilarious but also probably slightly concerning.

"I use earbuds instead of headphones because I play this game way more than the average person. Like, I play this game around like 10-14 hours a day, 6 days a week", he said.

This translates to playing for an average of about 72 hours every week. Even by "hardcore" gamer standards, that's pretty crazy!

But that's not the only thing that shocked us. Afterwards, Brother Enoch explained why playing for that long, whilst wearing headphones would be a problem and it's absolutely hilarious.

"So, if I were to wear headphones and even though it's not a ton of added weight, it's still a lot of weight that would then put a lot of pressure on my neck and would actually end up being unhealthy for me", he said quite reasonably.

He then continued by saying: "Also I don't do it because I don't wanna have a dent. TimTheTatman? He has a dent. NICKMERCS? Pretty sure that man has a dent too. I wanna be dent free baby. I'm not trying to vibe with no dent".

You can watch the video for yourself below and let us know what you think on Twitter.

Admittedly, it was at this point that I instinctively checked whether I had a dent myself, given that my headset is pretty much stuck to my head all day.

On another note, I wasn't the only one that thought that was absurd. Fans broke out in with laughter in the Tiktok comments section, with one user writing: "he's worried about the wrong unhealthy [laughing emoji]". Another user jokingly said: "the dents are permanent and don't do any damage".

I certainly think that Brother Enoch should chill out on playing so many hours of Apex. While I certainly respect the grind, playing 14 hours a day is definitely not healthy.
