By |

Puro-AP-headphones-.jpgPuro Sound Labs has added two new models to its line of volume-limiting headphones. Like other Puro designs, the new IEM200 in-ear monitor ($29.99) and OEH200 on-ear headphone ($39.99) are limited to 85 dB to prevent noise-induced hearing loss, an especially big problem with today's teens. These affordable models are specifically targeted at students, and both models have noise isolation and a hands-free microphone with a play/pause control. More details are available on Puro's website.

From Puro Sound Labs
Puro Sound Labs, a premier audio company dedicated to eliminating the epidemic of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL), announced their new "Audio Protection" (AP) headphones specifically developed for students. The "AP" line, which includes the new IEM200 in-ear monitor and OEH200 on-ear headphone, offers an affordable, safe alternative to the standard earbud/headphone that can cause irreversible damage by exceeding healthy volume levels. Puro is working with School Districts and Audiologists nationwide to educate and provide the solution to parents and children.

Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is the next big epidemic, according to the many in the hearing health industry. One in five teens in the U.S. have some form of hearing loss, which is a 30 percent increase since the mid 1990s, and another 1.1 billion people worldwide are at risk due to increase use of portable audio devices. This crisis is 100 percent preventable. The new "AP" headphones are volume limited at 85 dB max, include a hands-free microphone with pause/play setting control, and contain the Puro Balanced Response curve that re-creates studio grade audio of a perfectly tuned listening room. Additionally, the IEM200 model provides the user various size ear tips to help achieve the best comfort and ambient noise isolation, blocking of 79 percent of ambient noise, with the on-ear model blocking 80 percent. Puro's "AP" line of headphones safely prevents hearing damage without compromising studio-grade sound.

The increase in portable audio devices and transition to tablets in schools inspired Puro to make its patent-pending technology available for students at an affordable price. The IEM200 and OEH200 models retail at $29.99 and $39.99, respectively. Puro will be partnering with school districts nationwide to create awareness of NIHL, offer the solution, and give back a portion of sales to participating communities. The "AP" headphones are available now at www.purosound.com and www.amazon.com.

Committed to fighting this growing epidemic of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL), Puro's CEO Brett Lacey stated, "The increasing use of electronic devices as a method of delivering classroom instruction, is putting headphones on children's ears more frequently and for longer durations. We already have a solution for everyday life, but we saw a gap in the market when it came to classrooms where kids are spending a significant amount of time."
