For America’s youth, hearing loss is a growing epidemic. “As many as 16% of teens (ages 12 to 19) have reported some hearing loss that could have been caused by loud noise,” according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.
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 that are listening to their music at unsafe sound levels.
Whether Puro products are used as a tool to augment classroom instruction or as an important tool in multi-media rooms or computer labs, and on into home use – Puro’s audio quality can deliver a proven technological approach to improving an individual, group or classroom’s ability to understand the lesson being taught.
Combine this science with our trident of technology and you have the perfect headphone solution for today’s kids and classrooms.
While our headphones are helping students listen responsibly, Puro is making a deeper impact within our schools by donating 5% of proceeds generated back to school districts.
Our hope is that these efforts will help fund other healthy living initiatives that schools may be leading or participating in.
