iHearSafe – Review and Giveaway

Here’s the scenerio. It happens in my house all of the time, and with my seven year old daughter to boot. She’ll be listening to her ipod shuffle and I can hear it all the way across the room. Now, if I can hear the base and music how loud can it be for her? Imagine how much that must be hurting her hearing, at only seven listening to music at such a loud volume. I’m always telling her to turn them down.

In steps the product iHearSafe, which is such a fantastic invention! I no longer have to worry over the effect of my daughters MP3 player listening on her hearing.  iHearSafe has taught me that when listening to loud music over a period of time it can actually cause damage on your inner ear. This is called Noise Induced Hearing Loss. Sounds louder than 85 decibels can cause this damage. To put it into perspective, a standard MP3 player puts out 120 decibel sound levels!

The first person to test these headphones was my eldest daughter, the seven year old. She grabbed my ipod and immediately plugged in the iHearSafe earbuds. She was very excited that the shape of the earbuds is not the normal shape, which is normally circular. That style always falls out of her ears and upsets her. iHearSafe earbuds have a soft plasticy rubber overlay that fits perfectly into any ear. I asked her how the sound was with the volume all the way. She couldn’t hear me! At seven, she could not notice a different in the sound quality and immediately walked away so she could enjoy the music.


Next I tested the Safe Volume™ Headphones  which are my absolute most favorite headphones ever. They do fit slightly awkward over my ears. They do not a complete cup over my ears. They are, though, very comfortable. The sound quality is much clearer to me than the normal ear buds I use are. I plugged them into my laptop and took some time watching Privileged (cwtv.com). The sound quality was much better than it was when listening through the speakers. Very clear and at no point giving me a headache!

My husband then tested another set of iHearSafe EarBuds – white and blue – on his mp3 player (Sansa Clip). He said he could definitely hear a difference but said that it wasn’t annoying. He put on Korn, which is hardcore loud (and I think obnoxious) music. The strong undertones of the music were not strong or at the extreme point they are normally. I definitely liked that it wasn’t as headbanging loud. Though people who like the headbanging music will not enjoy the slightly dulled quality in this type of music alone.

I love these! I want them for anyone in my family. They are safe, reliable, and super comfortable. I love the idea of allowing my children to listen to their MP3 players, without having to worry about hurting their future hearing.
