Puro Sound Labs' headphones let you know when you're headed for hearing lossTinnitus fans can skip these warm-sounding wireless headphones that help you keep your audio in a safe range.
[MUSIC] You like headphones, I like headphones, we all like headphones. But if you listen too loud for too long, they can cause hearing loss. But you still gotta block out the world around you, so you wear these, Puro Sound Labs BT5200 headphones. They're on-ear, Bluetooth headphones with soft padding to help block out environment noise. But they're also tuned for better sound at lower volume with a nice warm sound quality and [INAUDIBLE] Fine base. And if you do decide to crank them up, an LED on the ear cup tips you off if you start listening at unsafe levels. Green when you're at 85 decibels or less, yellow when you're between 85 and 5.95 and red when you're over 95 decibels and on you're way to hearing damage. You have to take them off to be sure, but at least you can find out and you can choose to be healthy or live on the edge Assuming you consider listening to loud music edgy. Anyway, the BT5200 can be used wired or wireless for up to about 24 hours and are pretty comfortable. But if you wear them for a few hours straight you might find the pressure on your ears a bit much. They're otherwise very good for the price of around $100. And you can also get a version for kids, the 80 dollar B T 2200, that are limited to 85 decibels or less, so you can protect the hearing of your whole family, for when they're not wearing headphones.
