Do your kids use headphones? Have you thought about whether the ones they use are safe for their hearing? There is a current trend for headphones designed especially for kids, that have their volume limited to what has been deemed a safe level, although experts warn that listening times should still be limited.

Puro Sound Labs, one of the well-known names in Healthy Ears® kids’ headphones, have announced the expansion of their product collection to include the JuniorJams Bluetooth headphones for kids.

Puro Sound Labs JuniorJams

Puro Sound Lab’s JuniorJams have been designed for “performance, safety, durability, and comfort at an affordable price”. The company has a reputation for delivering audio quality headphones with hearing safe 85dB volume-limiting technology and Sensory Certification.

The JuniorJams follow in the tradition of Puro Sound Labs’ premium headphone offerings by featuring comfortable noise isolation and sound quality with effective volume limiting, while adding further improvements and new features. A sturdy and stylish aluminum headband construction and a protein leather ear cushion make the headphones easy to wear whilst still delivering 87% ambient noise isolation that helps block out ambient noise allowing kids to hear the audio without interference from the outside world.

Balanced Response Curve

The JuniorJams utilise Puro Sound Labs’ Balanced Response Curve, for better bass, treble and vocal clarity without the need to make it loud. At the same time, the 85dB volume-limiting technology means kids can’t crank up the sound to hearing-damaging levels. Improved battery performance provides up to 22 hours of playback, and the daisy-chain feature allows two pairs of headphones to playback the same source simultaneously.

Alex Silverman, Executive Vice President of Puro Sound Labs, commented, “We are expanding our product line so more families can afford to safely equip their kids with headphones that offer our Puro Sound audio performance and safe volume limiting. In designing the JuniorJams we rolled up everything a parent would need and a child would want from a headphone. Safety, durability, ease of use, comfort, cool style and awesome sound help these headphones keep both the front seat and the back seat happy.”

World Health Organisation

According to the World Health Organisation, some 1.2 billion teenagers and young adults are at risk of hearing loss due to the unsafe use of personal audio devices. “Preventing noise-induced hearing loss while delivering best in class sound performance is our fundamental objective,” continues Silverman. “We are thrilled about the JuniorJams relaunch, as it will have a profound impact on our ability to put more safe headphones on kids’ ears around the world.”

JuniorJams are now available in two colours, blue and pink (with more to come), priced at £49.99
