Rokit Boost Introduces "Chill Headphones" – Volume-Limiting Headphones to Prevent Children’s Hearing Damage
One of the most alarming, yet invisible, childhood health epidemics is the premature loss of hearing caused by headphone use.
One of the most alarming, yet invisible, childhood health epidemics is the premature loss of hearing caused by headphone use. No other generation has had their ears so assaulted by the intensity of sound that digital devices deliver through earphones and ear buds. Studies indicate that today 1 in 5 teens has some form of hearing loss, a number 30% higher than it was in the 1980s and 1990s, before the widespread use of headphones . To help with this problem, high-tech headphones manufacturer Rokit Boost, has introduced a set of sound-limiting headphones designed specifically for children which cap the volume at maximum 85 decibels to help prevent the auditory damage that can lead to hearing loss.
Chill Headphones are specifically designed for kids’ ears and parents’ budgets. They are affordably priced for families and come with a lifetime warranty. These wired kids headphones are over-the-ear style, which has been shown to be a safer design than earbuds, which get positioned closer to the eardrum and are often used at higher volumes because of external environmental noise. Chill Headphones are available in three colors – red, pink and black - are extremely durable and built to handle the rough and tumble use that kids can dish out. They come with a tough fabric cable, with inline volume control and a built-in microphone.
Hearing loss is caused by the progressive accumulation of damage to the delicate hairs inside the ear which transmit sound waves to the brain. There are only about 80,000 of them, and once they are damaged by excessively loud sounds, they never grow back. According to the National Institutes of Health, repeated exposure to sound over 85 decibels can cause hearing loss, with permanent damage potentially occurring in minutes, experts say. Consider that today’s devices can produce sounds up to 120 dB loud, well above the 85 dB safe level, and any concerned parent will recognize that the best way to keep kids from turning up the volume too much is to provide specific headphones for kids
