iHearSafe: A good idea


So these things are basically headphones designed to output up to and only up to 85 decibels. You plug them in and no matter how high the device is set, your child will be listening at a level safe enough for everyday use and that won’t damage their hearing accidentally.

Is hearing loss in youth really a big deal? Probably not – I’m positive we probably killed more of our hearing listening to Led Zep in a pair of old time cans than kids listening to their iPods will – but it’s an easy way to ensure it won’t ever be an issue, especially with kids using earbuds at earlier ages.

It’s available now at iHearSafe.com.
