Puro Sound Labs Adds Active Noise Cancellation to Award-Winning Kid’s Wireless Headphone Line-Up
Puro Sound Labs, the world’s leading manufacturer of premium, safe children’s headphones, today introduced PuroQuiet, their latest studio-grade wireless headphones for kids, featuring active noise cancellation. The new headphones employ many of the outstanding features that earned Puro Sound numerous awards for their original BT-2200 kid’s volume-limited headphones, including high-quality aluminum construction, plush noise-isolating ear-pads, the outstanding clarity of the Puro Balanced Response curve, and digital signal processing (DSP) enabled volume-limiting to prevent damaging volume levels. In addition to the sleek new design, the PuroQuiet headphones add the Active Noise Cancellation feature found on high-end headphones that suppresses ambient noise levels and provides a superior listening experience in even the loudest of environments. Additional features include the latest Bluetooth profiles for CD-like quality wireless audio, a high-sensitivity microphone for taking calls or gaming with friends, and up to 16-hours of active battery life. The new PuroQuiet headphones will be on sale starting late November at Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and PuroSound.com for only $199.99 USD and are available in pink with a white headband, and blue with a black headband.
“Studies show that listening to music above 85dB for extended periods of time can cause permanent hearing damage, and the louder the volume, the quicker the damage can occur,” notes Puro Sound Labs founder and CEO, Dave Russell. He comments that, “Puro Sound Labs was created to address the world health epidemic of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss after my wife and I became aware that our daughter had hearing damage at a young age, likely as a result of listening with her headphones too loud. We want kids to enjoy great-sounding music, but we also want to be sure that they are listening at safe levels. We’re excited to extend the performance level of our Healthy Ears products with Active Noise Cancellation for even great ambient noise reduction and improved sound quality.”
With children listening to portable electronics on headphones more and more, noise-induced hearing loss is a growing concern. Parents want to know that their kids are listening to music, movies, and games at safe levels that won’t damage their child’s hearing. Puro Sound Lab’s new PuroQuiet headphones start with a light, but sturdy, aluminum construction and plush protein leather ear cups that isolate the listener from 82% of ambient noises at 1kHz. This is an initial step to make it easier to hear the music. In addition, in noisier environments, PuroQuiet’s Active Noise Cancellation feature analyzes the ambient noise and uses digital signal processing to further reduce competing background noise by a dramatic 22 dB. It’s as if the wearer were placed in a sound proof bubble of silence. The headphone’s isolation capabilities could be especially useful for children with sensory sensitivity.
