Kid-safe headphones – Protecting young ears in the multimedia age
Electronic devices phones, tablets and laptops – are increasingly being used by kids, which exposes them to sound from an early age. However, when it comes to audio equipment, few products on the market are designed specifically with the needs and safety of children in mind. This gap has led ONANOFF Europe to develop a dedicated headphone brand for kids.
Headphone safety features include safe maximum volume, rounded surfaces, and an easily detachable audio cable to avoid tripping accidents. To ensure chemical safety, the company tests for over 80 hazardous chemicals. A unique headphone with a detachable boom microphone was designed for school use, which can be folded and easily stored. The company has continued to champion safer listening habits and informs parents and teachers about this issue across multiple platforms.
“The use of headphones by children increased dramatically during the lockdown. This innovation could inspire other players in the market to innovate,” said the Jury.
