#69 She Became a Butterfly
Congratulations! You will absolutely love your iHearSafe earbuds. You will be receiving an email shortly!
I recently had the opportunity to try the iHearSafe earbuds. I was a bit skeptical at first, wondering about the sound quality of a product that doesn’t reach the decibel level that other MP3 earbuds do. I was so anxious to try these, as I am constantly asking my daughter to turn her music down (it’s definitely too loud when I can hear her music from across the room when she has other earbuds in!). I have always worried and wondered what this must be doing to her ears, and what hearing problems might occur down the road.
When the iHearSafe earbuds arrived, I first was impressed with the appearance and color selection. They are very attractive, which is a plus (especially when you have a teenager like I do…they’ve got to be “cool”). I asked my daughter to try them first – I was curious to see what she thought before I tried them. I figured the opinion of a teenager for this type of product would be important. She tried a pink pair, which easily plugged into her ipod. The first thing she commented on was how comfortable they were. Unlike other earbuds, these are actually shaped to fit in ears! She tried a variety of music, just to see how different songs would sound. She was very excited and said it was like surround sound. I asked her if it got loud enough for her…she said yes, and that the sound level sounded just like other earbuds. What a relief…it was my fear that she would say that they just didn’t get loud enough. She was very, very happy with the sound quality and volume level, and now she actually prefers to listen to her music with the iHearSafe earbuds, rather than through the computer speakers as she usually does when she is home.
I had to pry the earbuds away from my daughter when it was my turn to try them. She wasn’t too happy to have to give them up! I was quite pleased with how snug and comfortable they were. I didn’t feel like they were going to fall out every two minutes, as so often happens with other earbuds. I like to listen to my ipod while I’m gardening, and it is bothersome to have to stop and put them back in my ears constantly (especially with dirty hands!). I won’t have that problem with these earbuds.
I listened to a few songs on her ipod, then I listened to a few on my own ipod, as I wanted to make sure I sampled a wide range of music to fully experience the sound quality. I have to agree with my daughter, the sound is excellent. I turned it way up, and the sound quality was still there. Honestly I couldn’t tell that the decibel level was lower than others. These earbuds are amazing, and I highly recommend them to everybody. It’s so nice to know that it’s a product that kids, teens, and adults can all enjoy and benefit from. I no longer have to worry about my daughter’s loud music hurting her ears, and I will make sure these are the only earbuds she uses from now on. I won’t go back to other earbuds for myself either!
Here are some features of the iHearSafe earbuds:
- The decibel level only goes up to 85 decibels, unlike normal MP3 players, which can exceed 120. The iHearSafe earbuds help prevent Noise Induced Hearing Loss.
- It automatically limits volume. No matter how high the device volume is turned up, it will always remain below the 85dB threshold of when hearing damage can begin.
- There is no software to download
- Great color selection
UPDATE/RECALL: There has recently been a recall of iHearSafe products.
