With festival season fast approaching, family weekends away are about to get a whole lot more rock 'n' roll. Alongside wellies and a good SPF, protecting kid's ears from the gradual but permanent damage caused by whacking up headphone volume too loud should also be a consideration.
Puro Sound Labs thinks so too. The manufacturer, who prides itself on creating 'safe' premium headphones for children, is introducing the PuroQuiet active noise-cancelling headphones to the UK market.
The wireless headphones feature Bluetooth 4.0 and limit volume to 85dB, the maximum safe listening level recommended by the Hearing Health Foundation and World Health Organisation.
When activated, the PuroQuiet's noise-cancellation switch supposedly blocks out background sound up to 22dB, providing 82 percent noise isolation - useful for children with sensory sensitivity or to keep a child calm in unfamiliar environments. But they also promise a great soundscape for little'uns wanting to listen to their favourite artists, a microphone is present and correct for gaming or chatting with friends.
