Safe, Durable and Desirable- Winning Combination for Puro Sound Headphones!
Why are Volume-Limiting Headphones so important to Puro Sound Labs?
In 2014 the founder, Dave Russell, learned that his youngest daughter, Niki, had developed Noise-induced hearing loss. The doctors told them the culprit was on her head everyday on the way to school, her headphones.
For America’s youth, hearing loss is a growing epidemic. Today, one in five teens suffer from some form of hearing loss, a 31% increase since the mid-90s. The driving force of this growth is that 50% of teens and young adults age 12-35 are exposed to unsafe levels of sound from their personal music players. To put that in perspective, that amounts to roughly 1.1 billion teens and young adults worldwide.
How did Puro Sound deal with Noise- induced hearing loss?
Our approach to safe listening is unique. It starts with a simple formula.
- Block out 82% of the background noise Our design is fully passive and yet is able to knock out background (ambient) noise on a level that is comparable to some of best active noise cancelling headphones on the market)
- Limit volume to 85 dB This is the maximum safe listening level as recommended by many organizations (Hearing Health Foundation, OSHA, World Health Organization, American Speech Pathology Association, etc.).
- Studio Grade Audio quality with our patent-pending Puro Balanced Response® curve. Genuine studio grade audio, engineered to deliver an amazing listening experience with clear, crisp vocals and full, dynamic bass all within 85 dB volume limit.
Why we LOVE Puro Sound headphones:
Hearing loss has affected our family in many ways. My hubby has congenital hearing loss which makes us very concerned about our son’s hearing. My son loves to listen to music or watch videos on his electronic devices with his headphones. Our saving grace has been his dislike of earbuds for many years. He said they didn’t feel good in his ears and would never wear them. We have been on the hunt for the perfect over-the-ear headphones ever since. Puro Sound Labs has the ultimate design! Not only are they volume-limiting- my son CANNOT turn them up too loud, but they are wireless and well-priced!
Wireless is best! Setting up Bluetooth is very easy with these headphones. Just turn on the headphones (be sure they are charged first), be sure bluetooth is enabled on your device and it will be a “discovered” device. Within a minute, you can be listening to your favorite music.
The volume control is conveniently located on the left ear cup. You can also control the volume from your device.
One great feature is the option to use the headphones with the a “wire.” There is a 3.5 mm audio cable that came bundled with the headphones. You can connect it to the audio jacks on your device, and the other to the 3.5 mm port on the bottom of the left cup of the headphones. This is a great option when your headphones need to be charged.
One thing that is different than other headphones is the charging process. Unlike other headphones, you can’t charge them and listen to music at the same time. This is a Puro Sound safety protocol.
Of course, the most important part- these headphones have amazing sound quality. I love that they sound amazing, are volume-limited and very comfortable. The ear cups are heavily padded that make for a great wearing and listening experience.
