Puro Sound Labs, a premier audio company dedicated to eliminating the epidemic of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL), announced their new “Audio Protection” (AP) headphones specifically developed for students. The “AP” line, which includes the new IEM200 in-ear monitor and OEH200 on-ear headphone, offers an affordable, safe alternative to the standard earbud/headphone that can cause irreversible damage by exceeding healthy volume levels. Puro is working with School Districts and Audiologists nationwide to educate and provide the solution to parents and children.
Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is the next big epidemic, according to the many in the hearing health industry. One in five teens in the U.S. have some form of hearing loss which is a 30 percent increase since the mid 1990’s, and another 1.1 Billion people worldwide are at risk due to increase use of portable audio devices. This crisis is 100 percent preventable. The new “AP” headphones are volume limited at 85 dB max, include a hands-free microphone with pause/play setting control, and contain the Puro Balanced Response curve that recreates studio grade audio of a perfectly tuned listening room. Additionally, the IEM200 model provides the user various size ear tips to help achieve the best comfort and ambient noise isolation, blocking of 79 percent of ambient noise, with the on-ear model blocking 80 percent. Puro’s “AP” line of headphones safely prevents hearing damage without compromising studio-grade sound.
