SAVING HEARING

The advent of portable audio devices has often been cited as a prime factor in the substantial increase of hearing loss in children and teens over the past decade. According to The Journal of the American Medical Association and The New England Journal of Medicine, over 5 million American children have already suffered permanent, irreversible hearing damage as the result of personal stereo usage. To counteract this trend, the Kid's Ear Saver Company of Mississippi has developed the Kid's Ear Saver adapter. The adapter attaches to the headphones or earphones of any audio player, allowing the user's ears to be protected whether the sound source is portable or stable. Devices such as CD and DVD players, games and televisions can emit as much as 115 decibels of sound, the equivalent in volume to an ambulance siren, sandblaster or rock concert. (The Occupational Safety and Health Administration reports that 115 decibels can cause significant hearing damage in as little as 15 minutes). Designed to reduce the sound level by over 15 decibels, the Kid's Ear Saver adapter costs $19.95 (or $48.95 for a family pack of three). To order online, go to www.kidsearsaver.com.
