Review (June 2009)-
By Kevin Nakano
As parents, we spend our entire life looking after the welfare of our children. We buy the right car seat, plan their education, and make sure they are safe. Unfortunately, many kids love to play their new iPod Nano and other music players louder than we would like them to. It is difficult to know just how loud they are playing the music when they use earphones. As most of the older generation knows, playing music too loud can sometimes lead to serious hearing impairment. Ultimate Ears, a local company in Irvine, CA has addressed this with the Loud Enough Volume Limiting Earphones that are specifically designed to prevent high volume sound from damaging young sensitive ears. The built-in volume reducer decreases sound levels by approximately 10-15 dB. The result is a significant decrease in volume, preventing potentially damaging levels from affecting kids' hearing. The Loud Enough earphones have been designed to provide parents with some level of confidence that their children could listen to music for a minimum of 1 hour at maximum sound output. While parents still need to be responsible for their child's exposure to continuous music, the product does help limit cumulative sound level exposure.
The following table is provided by Ultimate Ears and has OSHA (Occupational Safety Health Administration) guidelines for the maximum time exposure to Sound Pressure Levels (SPL) before possible hearing damage occurs.
