A lot is made of children spending too much time looking at phones or tablets, but how they listen to the content coming off of those devices is even more important. The volume levels of audio that a child is listening to can seriously impact their hearing and needs to be addressed. Sure a parent can stand next to their child and physically manipulate the volume of their headphones to keep it low, but a better solution is to have it done automatically. Such a feature is just one of many reasons why Puro Sound Lab’s BT2200 Studio Grade Children’s Bluetooth Headphones becomes the answer.
The headphones’ ear cups fit over the child’s ear and provides for a competent seal to remove surface noise. But even more important is that the fit does not cause “ear fatigue” after just a few minutes have gone by. This is facilitated by having soft and cushioned ear cups (because no kid is going to just spend a few minutes listening and won’t remove the headphones even if they start to chaff). So these headphones work at reducing their overall weight on the ear by having a total weight of under 6 ounces. Technically, the addition of a pair of 40mm custom dynamic drivers means that they are able to put forth a powerful but nuanced sound. This makes Disney songs sound as good as any other genres, especially as it pertains to the bass which layers in a solid undertone to keep the audio “grounded.” Some of this audio quality also comes from the ear cups being aluminum and not some cheap plastic. Such a construction also makes them last longer as well as look more appealing (to a kid, looks are important after all). Add in that the headphones are constructed aurally with a “studio grade” outlook. — what that means is that the sound has been modulated to perform in a real-world manner. One that is free of artificially-induced sound so as to mimic being in a quiet listening room free of distracting sounds and powered by quality performing speakers. Call it “speakers for the ears,” if you will.
The headphones also employ the latest Bluetooth tech so that cables don’t become an issue. Also not an issue is the amount of time that the rechargeable battery can power the Bluetooth: up to 18 hours on a single charge should do the trick. And that’s running time, not the 200 hours (aprox) that the battery holds its charge in standby.
But for Puro Sound Labs to tout these headphones with the term “healthy ears”, there needs to be something added to promote a safer listening environment. So since it’s been shown that listening at over 85 decibels can be dangerous (I.e., raising the volume high), the headphones actively fights against this by limiting the volume so it can’t go past 85 dBA. That includes running the headphones using the supplied wired cable too.
Puro Sound Labs BT2200 Studio Grade Children’s Bluetooth Headphones provides the best of two technologies: Bluetooth for accepting streaming music w/a mic for taking/making calls, and a volume limiter for ensuring hearing safety. All this plus great sound quality and a great “build” for $99.99 retail will make you wonder why is it that kids always get the good stuff?
