I can still remember the thrill of getting my first Walkman. For those of you who are too young to know what a Walkman is, it was a portable cassette player about 10X the size and weight of an iPod nano and was the must-have musical accessory of the '80s. The Walkman meant that I could enjoy music whenever and wherever I wanted and I loved every minute of it.
My favorite spot to listen to my tunes had to be on the long bus ride to and from school. I would turn the volume up really loud in order to drown out all of the noise and chatter occurring on the school bus and just sink into my own little world. Unfortunately, it wasn't too long after receiving my Walkman that I began noticing I couldn't hear regular conversation as easily as before.
Even as a child, I knew that the Walkman was causing my hearing to get worse, but it was just too tempting to keep listening to it super loud, since the music sounded much better that way. Children aren't wise enough to trade long-term benefits for short-term gratification, as illustrated by my Walkman example. Keep reading to learn more!
That's why I'm thrilled to introduce the Aerial7 Arcade Series of Safe Listening Kids' Headphones. These headphones are guaranteed not to exceed a safe listening level of 85db, so parents can rest easy, yet they're also designed to block background noise and provide high-definition sound quality, so children won't complain the volume is too low.
Like all headphones from AERIAL7, the Arcade children's headphone is made with fresh designs and quality materials along with a compact, adjustable headband. The Arcade is also infused with AERIAL7's Automatic Volume Reduction (AVR) technology. AVR technology reduces maximum volume or sound pressure, without compromising sound quality. Let your child listen to crystal clear sound without distortion or excess exposure to noise. AERIAL7 complies with OSHA regulation standards so if the volume control gets bumped or turned up accidentally, it will automatically reduce the volume to 85db.
- Engineered to deliver the highest-quality listening experience from your mp3 player, cell phone or other music device.
- Equipped with AERIAL7's Automatic Volume Reduction (AVR) Technology.
- Headband has been designed to fit children.
- Soft, ear cushions for comfortable extended listening.
- Battery included.
PTPA WINNER'S SEAL OF APPROVAL
With summer on our heels, children will soon find themselves out of school and possibly even traveling more than before. Both of these situations lead to heightened use of iPods, handheld video games and portable DVD players. Because of this, there's no better time to purchase a pair of safe-listening headphones so that your child's hearing is protected.
I love how affordably priced and stylish the Aerial7 Arcade Stereo Headphones are. Any child would love to sport these around town this summer and every parent should breathe a little easier knowing their child isn't in any danger of impairing their hearing.
