Healthy Listening While Learning: The Importance of Volume-Safe Sound for Kids

Healthy Listening While Learning: The Importance of Volume-Safe Sound for Kids

Published -

In today's digital age, where learning involves the use of technology, ensuring our children's auditory health is paramount. Recent studies, including an eye-opening report by The New York Times, have highlighted the risks associated with children's headphones and potential hearing loss. Fortunately, JLab is leading the charge in promoting healthy listening habits among young learners through our JBuddies collection. Inspired by his daughter, Avery, in 2015 JLab CEO Win Cramer sought to create a line of headphones that fit children’s heads comfortably while safeguarding their developing ears.

According to a study conducted by the CDC, “Noise exposure is the second most common cause of acquired hearing loss (after aging)…The high prevalence of audiometric notches (one in five) among persons aged 20–29 years suggests that early life interventions need to be developed.” With features like a built-in volume regulator, the JBuddies ensure sound levels never exceed 85 decibels, which is the limit set by the National Institute for Safety and Health back in 1998. Let’s dive into the versatility and functionality of each product in the lineup:
