Children need to be taught from a young age that their hearing is precious. If this is done well, they will be more likely to protect their hearing as they move into their teenage years.
Noise generated by loud music, loud workplaces and loud recreational equipment accounts for more than a third of all hearing loss. Due to these things, people are losing their hearing at a younger age than they were 30 years ago.
Ems for Kids FAQ
The letters printed on the side of the earmuffs refer to various international safety standards:
ANSI S3.19 – The American National Standards Institute is a private, nonprofit organization that oversees the development of voluntary consensus standards for products, services, processes, systems, and personnel in the United States. Equivalent Australian companies include SAI Global and Standards Australia. S3.19 is the standard introduced by the ANSI to regulate hearing protection devices. Ems for Kids meet these requirements.
EN352-1: 1993 – This is the European Standard for hearing protection and hearing protectors, as well as protective clothing and other safety measures. Ems for Kids also meet this standard.
Ems for Kids can be worn by children of all ages. However, we recommend that they are not used on children less than 6 months old. This is due to the fact that newborns’ heads are quite soft, and the earmuffs are a reasonably tight fit. PLEASE NOTE: This is a RECOMMENDATION only. We have had customers use Ems for Kids on children less than 6 months, with no problems whatsoever. These are designed specifically for babies.
Should you find the earmuffs to be a bit too tight, they can be stretched slightly. Simply place two chairs back to back, and stretch the earmuffs over the two chairs. After leaving the earmuffs for a while, they will have stretched by a small amount, making them a bit less tight when worn.
