Most young people love listening to their music loud, that’s no surprise. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates over a billion teens and young adults worldwide are at risk of hearing loss from unsafe listening habits.1
This is caused by sounds reaching hazardous levels through their headphones or at noisy entertainment venues, potentially causing noise-induced hearing loss.
So, how can you control the volume? It’s possible. Australian Hearing recommends studio-grade sounding Puro headphones as safe for younger ears, featuring noise-limiting ear protection which caps the device volume to a safe level. Even though they’re high tech, the cool factor or sound quality hasn’t been lost. Puro headphones are stylish and are the best sounding kids’ headphones around.
Here’s the technical stuff!
- Unique volume limiter, capping sound output to 85dB – the maximum recommended safe listening level (World Health Organisation)1
- Puro Balanced Response® – delivers clear vocal reproduction without excessive volume
- Ambient (background) noise reduction – blocks out 82% of background noise (on-ear model).
