Etymotic’s safe earphones for children

Does your younger sister always borrow your earphones so that she can listen to her favorite songs from the phone or laptop? Do you get annoyed by this? Well, the solution to your problem is here—safe earphones for children.

Kids’ ears are more sensitive and delicate that those of older people. Audiologists have noted that since the advent of the Sony Walkman in the 1980s, the rate of hearing loss among young people has been increasing. In this time where iPods, MP3 and MP4 players, and phones which have multimedia players abound, it looks like hearing loss will never abate. Most parents always remind their children to keep the volume of their music devices down to keep angry neighbors at bay, and this tactic has been proven to be difficult to enforce.

Good thing about the advancement of technology is that it finds ways to make people’s lives better and safer. The invention of children-friendly earphones is a breakthrough and it has become the answer to the parents’ worsening concern about their young ones’ sense of hearing. Etymotic’s ETY Kids Safe- Listening Earphones allow the user to limit the volume to safe levels.

Frequency response is 20 Hz to 15 Hz and a reduced output 6-mm neodymium moving coil driver. The maximum volume is lower than the usual earphones and they have ACCU Fit ear tips to seal out competing background sounds. Kevlar-reinforced cord and custom-fit ear tips are also featured. They sell for $49 from Ety.
