I don't mean to sound stupid, but I wanted to know if EVP can be dangerous. Can it attract demons? Has anyone here tried EVP?

Electronic Voice Phenomenon?

I was under the impression it was merely a means in which to hear things especially from seances but from what I read so far it doesn't seem to attract anything per se, at least I don't think so.

EVP or electronic voice phenomena isn't dangerous in and of itself.  This is a phenomena that is recorded using recording devices, and located with an electromagnetic detector that indicates with a flush of a needle electromagnetic bursts of energy.  EVP's are the result of a blast of electromagnetic phenomena that is audibly heard and recorded.  What is producing them is the subject of much controversy, misunderstanding, and fear.  (it also seems to produce some highly rated 'reality' TV episodes).

I have come across several websites that would indicate that EVP can be dangerous. Please check out these links and post some feedback please.

Thanks for the links Marukai.

They were both interesting. However since EVP is just a recording I still do not understand how they can be dangerous; wouldn't this make any recording -be it sound or video- suspect?

I personally don't see where EVP's could be dangerous.

Well, I guess that it may be possible to give an ghost/demon/whatever, energy by simply recognizing it is there and interacting with it. In that way it may be dangerous. UUUgghh...I'm confused about the whole thing now, lol

I think it is dangerous in the same circumstance that leaving children alone in the park with a sign "unsupervised" would be dangerous for their well being.

Attracting danger is always dangerous; merely using such tools is not.

There have been stories of people becoming obsessed (demonic obsession maybe) with collecting EVPs of their lost relatives or whatever and end up getting demons pretending to be family.  Then I guess possession is a worst case scenario.

Its all about conduct, anything can be dangerous if you act carelessly or don't respect the element of danger involved. Obviously when dealing with the paranormal, the upmost respect must be had for whatever comes through as a voise or noise on the tape, if this attitude is maintained then i personally do not see how it can be dangerous..at least not in comparism to invoking energies..I have personally only had positive experiences from it, but that does not mean that danger doesn't lurk

I think itís about as dangerous as using a Ouija board. 

I would say, you need to know what youíre doing if you do decide to start exploring EVP.

And then just protect yourself PROPERLY.

I don't think EVP can be dangerous, since it is only sound. What/whoever it is that's causing the EVP may possibly be something to worry about (assuming you believe it's caused by poltergeists, etc) EMF on the other hand could possibly be a danger, since it's energy and could possibly draw other entities towards it.

An EVP is not dangerous. Trust me...I'm part of a paranormal group and we have never had anything dangerous happen with it. It can be a little shocking when you get home and download your session to your computer to listen to it. You don't always hear them with your ears but for whatever case you are using it, it should do the trick if you are wanting to see if someone replies back to you. If you need assistance in equipment to get or anything, let me know..Send me a message.
