If you’re a new parent or someone unlucky enough to have a small head, finding headphones can be a huge pain in the neck. That’s where the Puro Sound Labs PuroQuiet comes in. This is one of the most credible Bluetooth headsets for smaller heads out there, and it’s a good set of ANC headphones to boot. I strongly recommend this headset for younger listeners, as it helps them avoid the temptation to give themselves noise-induced hearing loss.
Listeners who have smaller heads or are younger will appreciate the option for active noise canceling on smaller ears. Older listeners, teenagers, and those with larger heads will probably not find the fit to work all that well.
To be perfectly honest, the noise cancellation properties of the PuroQuiet are pretty standard. But “standard” ANC in this day and age is pretty damned good.
This headset does an exceptional job at keeping low sounds like engine noise and the rumble of rail transportation down to about half or one third as loud as they would be without any headphones on. While that may not seem like much, it’s a significant reduction in the force applied to your ears. However, ANC headsets don’t block out all sound, primarily just continuous noise. Incidental noise like clapping, people talking, and street noise will cut right through, though it won’t be quite as loud.
