As you know, thereâ€™s been a lot of attention paid to the dangers of mp3 players lately and how they affect our hearing. As parents look to buy these devices this holiday season, they should be aware that thereâ€™s a new set of sound-isolating ear buds â€“ called AudÃ©o Perfect Fit Earphones (PFE) â€“ available from Phonak, the largest hearing device and hearing aid company in the world.
The AudÃ©o earphones recently received high marks from a reviewer from Scholastic for the productâ€™s quality and sound safety levels for children: http://blogs.scholastic.com/techtools/2008/11/listen-to-this.html
Whatâ€™s the significance?
- The AudÃ©o earphones are the first consumer-ready device launched by Phonak, and if there is anyone that understands the human ear – it’s them!
- AudÃ©o provides exceptional comfort and top-notch sound quality without sacrificing the health of your ears, allowing users better control of listening levels byÂ isolating sound.
- There has been a growing buzz about the link between mp3 players and hearing loss. Recently, the European Union issued a warning to its citizens regarding the potential risk of hearing loss associated with unsafe listening levels of mp3 players. A study conducted by EU scientists suggests that between 2.5 million and 10 millions Europeans could be at risk. The study has implications in the U.S. as millions of Americans are not aware of the dangers of listening to levels over 89 decibels.
