Volume limiting headphones especially for kids
BuddyPhones are volume-limiting headphones designed for sharing and safety. Exposure to excessive levels of sound is proven to be damaging and can cause adverse long-term effect, therefore BuddyPhones are designed with a built-in, volume-limiting circuitry that caps the sound automatically at 85 decibels, which is the level recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) for kids. Not only were they designed to keep kids safe, but also to give parents a piece of mind, not having to constantly monitor the volume.
BuddyPhones come with the BuddyCable system, a built-in audio splitter that allows up to four audio cables to connect to one device, making it perfect for sharing with your best buddies. For those that have more than one child at home and they have trouble sharing it’s an excellent solution, allowing up to four kids to share one device, squabble-free.
How loud is too loud ? Protect their hearing !
Just as construction workers protect their ears with earplugs, onanoff created BuddyPhones to protect little music-lovers. Researchers who study hearing loss have found that a person who is exposed to noise levels above 85 decibels for a prolonged period of time is at risk for hearing loss. For this reason, workers are required to wear hearing protectors, such as earplugs or earmuffs, while working. Many devices that children use today have noise levels much higher than 85 decibels. For example, an MP3 player at maximum level is roughly on 105 decibels, that’s 100 times more intense than 85 decibels! Scientists recommend no more than 15 minutes of unprotected exposure to sounds that are 100 decibels. In addition, regular exposure to sounds at 110 decibels for more than one minute risks permanent hearing loss.
Share with your buddies
It's important for kids to learn that ‘Sharing is Caring’. This is why onanoff have installed a BuddyCable audio splitter in our BuddyPhones. The BuddyCable system allows up to four audio cables to connect to one device, making it perfect for sharing with your best buddies. It’s an excellent solution for parents with more than one child, allowing up to four kids to share one device, so mom and dad can listen to their own music or have a conversation without having to listen to 'Let it Go'.. once again. BuddyCable is built-in so it never gets lost or forgotten when you need it. One host device can connect up to four buddies at once!
