Our Story

From Our Family To Yours

Why do we care so much about Noise-induced hearing loss? It’s personal.

In 2014 our founder, Dave Russell, learned that his youngest daughter, Niki, had developed Noise-induced hearing loss. The doctors told them the culprit was on her head everyday on the way to school, her headphones.

For America’s youth, hearing loss is a growing epidemic. Today, one in five teens suffer from some form of hearing loss, a 31% increase since the mid-90s. The driving force of this growth is that 50% of teens and young adults age 12-35 are exposed to unsafe levels of sound from their personal music players. To put that in perspective, that amounts to roughly 1.1 billion teens and young adults worldwide.

We’ve heard the problem, now we hope you listen to the solution.

After Niki’s diagnosis, Dave scoured the market, searching for headphones for all ages that would prevent this extremely preventable condition. He didn’t find any. So, having a tech background, he made one.

At Puro Sound Labs we’ve created the world’s only studio-grade Bluetooth headphone that puts the safety of your ears first. Our patent-pending volume-limiting and volume-monitoring mechanisms ensure you and your family will be enjoying your tunes well into the future. All this, while looking great and sounding fantastic.

Our whole hearted mission is to protect you against the 100% preventable Noise-induced hearing loss without compromising style or sound. We’ve designed the perfect ear piece for your ear peace and with the Puro Promise if you don’t love it, you can send it back. Guaranteed.

From our family to yours, chEARS!
