As parents, we do just about everything we can to protect our kids. From sunscreen and safety covers to guidelines and limits – we’ve got most things covered. But, what about their hearing? Enter Lucid Audio and their collection of HearMuffs products which offer hearing protection (and more!) for babies and children.
What’s great is that HearMuffs are a multi-use product. This isn’t just something your kid will use “once in awhile.” Not only can my son wear the HearMuffs Trio while doing his mowing, he can easily hook up his iPod, and enjoy listening to music. (And they are SO much more comfortable than ear buds!)
Here are some other uses for HearMuffs:
- Monster Jam, motocross, etc. (Hearing protection is a MUST at these types of shows!)
- Concerts, sporting events, etc.
- Mowing/weed-eating, etc.
- Helping/Working around power tools, air compressors, etc.
- Block out distractions doing school work or homework (This is a game-changer!)
- Listening to music or using with any device
- Fourth of July
HearMuffs are also fantastic for kids who may have a Sensory Processing Disorder or for any child who may need to limit their sensory input, or is sensitive to loud or sudden/abrupt noises. This product can provide tremendous comfort and/or relief.
The HearMuffs Trio is designed to grow with your child, and fits most children ages 5-10, but I love that these can be used and worn by more than one child! The same product that fits my 10 year old, also fits my 6 and 7 year olds! The HearMuffs Trio also allows you to communicate with your child while they’re wearing them! (No more shouting!) Simply press a button that allows communication – allowing comfortable noise in, while still keeping harmful sounds out! (Now that’s a pretty cool feature!)
Lucid Audio makes HearMuffs for babies up to 4 years in two styles, the HearMuffs, which provides hearing protections for little ones, and the HearMuffs Sounds, which also lets a child enjoy four soothing sounds and allows voices to be heard while compressing potentially harmful noises to comfortable levels (maximum volume 60DB). For kids ages 5-10, Lucid offers Kids HearMuffs or Kids HearMuffs Trio, which also has a conversation mode that allows comfortable sound levels in so your child can hear you speaking while actively keeping harmful sounds out, and can be used as headphones in any mode at any time using a media port to connect to an external device.
Lucid Audio also makes some pretty sweet products for adults too! I had fun browsing around their website – and definitely saw a few things I’m interested in! This is a good thing to keep in mind if you struggle to come up with gift ideas for yourself! Check them out! Something for the WHOLE family!
In addition to being able to purchase directly from the Lucid Audio website (see above links), HearMuffs are also available for purchase on Amazon.
