Why Your Kids Have The Wrong Pair Of Headphones

Why Your Kids Have The Wrong Pair Of Headphones

It's time to care about your kids' headphones because chances are they're using the wrong pair.

As a parent, you're constantly worrying about the safety and well-being of your children. You wouldn't use any old car seat, you wouldn't buy them a defective bike helmet, you wouldn't give them toys painted in lead, so why are you giving your kids unsafe headphones?

Here at Puro Sound Labs, we're on a mission to end the epidemic of noise-induced hearing loss by providing the safest (and most-stylish) kids headphones on the market. The sad fact is that most headphones are not suitable for your kids. And even scarier, most headphones that claim to limit volume to a safe level failed to do so.

How Loud Is Too Loud?

The academic consensus is that long or repeated exposure to sounds above 85 decibels can cause hearing loss. For context, a normal conversation is at 60 decibels, city traffic is around 85 decibels, and sirens are at 120 decibels. So 85 decibels really isn't all that "loud" - at least compared to other sounds you encounter in your daily life.

The "Wrong Pair" of Headphones

So if 85 decibels is the safe level for sound, how loud are most standard headphones? A whopping 105-120 decibels. So next time you give junior your headphones to distract him for a little bit, you could be exposing to him dangerous sound levels that can cause irreversible hearing damage.

The Simple Solution

Even though the dangers of noise-induced hearing loss are real and even though most headphones are wrong for your child, there is a simple solution: Puro Sound Lab's BT2200 Volume-Limited Kids' Bluetooth Headphones. These headphones are the best kids' headphones available - just ask The New York Times, or Tech Advisor, or The Wirecutter (you get the idea).
