Just in time for holiday shopping, Puro Sound Labs has added a new color--black--to its BT2200 line of Bluetooth Kids headphones, which are already available in white and tan. These $79.99 Bluetooth headphones are designed to protect kids' hearing by limiting the volume output to 85 dB while incorporating the company's Puro Balanced Response technology and noise isolation to ensure a high-quality listening experience. Puro claims 18 hours of battery life, a cable is included for those times when Bluetooth is not an option, an integrated microphone allows for cell-phone use, and the package includes a travel case.
From Puro Sound Labs
Puro Sound Labs, a premiere consumer electronics audio company, has announced the expansion of their BT2200 line of studio-grade Bluetooth Kids Wireless headphones to include the color black, along with the white and tan versions already available. The Puro Sound Labs website is currently accepting orders of the special edition, which is priced at $79.99.
The new black edition is also in line with Puro Sound Lab's aim to provide consumers with a premium-quality listening experience combined with contemporary-designed on-ear headphones Healthy Ears technology at disruptive prices. "We are releasing the new black headphones in response to our customers demand for additional colors," said Robert Emma, Puro Sound Labs' CMO. "We always look forward to growing our product line in conjunction with consumer feedback, and won't rule out additional colors in the future," added Emma.
The Puro Sound Labs BT2200's are Bluetooth headphones created specifically for kids and designed with the health and safety of a child as a priority. The BT2200s represent the first ever and only studio-grade Bluetooth headphones on the market made especially for kids with volume-limiting ear protection. Volume levels over 85 decibels (dB) have been known to cause hearing loss over time. Puro's unique headphone design protects children's ears while delivering studio-grade sound. With hearing health and education in mind, Puro Sound has committed to donating a portion of every sale of all Puro Sound products through 2015 to the Hearing Health Foundation.
"Noise-induced hearing loss is 100 percent preventable; however, prolonged exposure to sounds that are 85 decibels (dB) or above, such as loud music, is often the culprit. By placing an 85-dB volume limit on their headphones, Puro Sound is taking significant strides towards protecting children's hearing against premature hearing loss. We are excited to work together to achieve the same goal of both educating and providing consumers with hearing-friendly solutions," said Claire Schultz, CEO, of the Hearing Health Foundation. "We are looking forward to their continued support and their on-going efforts towards our collective cause."

Puro Sound Labs headphones are designed with a trident of technologies that combine to deliver superior sound, which allows for a reduced need for high volume settings. Puro's unique frequency response curve called Puro Balanced Response is designed to recreate the natural sound produced in a perfectly tuned listening room in the headphone listening experience. This helps to maximize the satisfaction of Healthy Ears hearing protection. Combined with the excellent ambient noise attenuation of the headphones and the volume limiter, Puro has achieved an excellent balance of sound quality that will help prevent noise-induced hearing loss.
Great care has gone into the design and materials used in the headphones. A soft and supple cushioning material and durable lightweight aluminum are used to make the headphones comfortable for young ears and to stand up to everyday use, as well as provide exceptional comfort. Their design also attenuates over 82 percent of ambient noise, eliminating a need for higher volume limits. When combined, Puro's Balanced Response Curve and the headphones' noise-reduction design, kids can enjoy their music with no need to exceed safe playback levels.
Parents will love them for their great value and hearing health, while kids will love them for their comfort, wireless Bluetooth freedom and great sound. Plus, when employing Bluetooth wireless technology, the chance of a child getting tangled or caught on the headphones' cable is eliminated.

"After much anticipation and positive feedback from headphone experts, we are excited to launch what we feel is the best set of headphones on the market for kids. Parents may not know that more than 12 percent of children between the ages of six and 19 suffer from noise-induced hearing loss. By limiting the BT2200 sound level to an appropriate 85 dB, we are doing our part to prevent kids from becoming part of that statistic. Kids can enjoy the music, apps and games they love in a studio-grade environment, safely," said Robert Emma, CMO of Puro Sound Labs.
