"We are proud to partner with Puro and recommend the benefits of noise-limiting headphones to Australian parents. We each want to educate people about safe listening levels"
SAN DIEGO, CA, February 16, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Puro Sound Labs, a global leader in high-quality, safe headphones is proud to announce its partnership with Australian Hearing, Australia's leading hearing specialist with over 150 retail locations.
Australian Hearing is the sole provider of services for government-funding that can be accessed by children and young adults under the age of 26, having provided over 463,000 hearing health services in the past year. Australian Hearing will begin distributing Puro's BT2200, the children's headphone recently named the "safest" by The New York Times and as shown on Good Morning America, to most of its 150 retail locations in early March.
Gina Mavrias, Chief Operating Officer at Australian Hearing said partnering with Puro is a natural fit because both organizations care about children's hearing health. "As the sole provider of government-funded hearing services to young Australians, we strongly support the importance of protecting young ears from anything that could damage hearing. Research shows that 64% of Australians aged 11 - 35 years old experience tinnitus or ringing in the ears. Tinnitus is more common to those who frequently listen to loud music on their personal stereo."
"This is why we are proud to partner with Puro and recommend the benefits of noise-limiting headphones to Australian parents. We each want to educate people about safe listening levels," said Gina Mavrias.
Puro Sound Labs has local distribution in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, New Zealand and most recently Australia, offering both children and adult models ranging from $29.99 to $149.99 USD. Puro's most popular children's BT2200 Bluetooth model includes the Puro Balanced Response Sound Curve along with Healthy Ears hearing protection which limits volume to a safe 85 decibels.
"Our mission is to get our headphones in the hands of children all over the world," said Brett Lacey, CEO of Puro Sound Labs. "We are thrilled to begin this relationship with our partners at Australian Hearing, whose values align very closely with ours at Puro Sound Labs."
With the BT2200's growing popularity, Puro has expanded its color line to include both blue and purple options, adding variety to the classic black and white lineup. The IEM200, in-ear studio grade headphone along with the OEH200, an over the ear headphone, were developed specifically for schools and institutions to allow for the safest listening experience at a lower cost.
Puro Sound Labs also provides safe listening options for adults. The BT5200 Bluetooth headphones feature studio-grade audio quality, plus advanced volume monitoring and interactive reporting to guide users to safer listening. These headphones are uniquely engineered to continuously monitor volume levels as you listen, and deliver that information to you through the LED indicator on the ear cup. All children and adult models offer 82% noise-isolation and studio grade audio quality to ensure a healthy, optimal listening experience.
About Puro Sound Labs
Established in 2014, Puro Sound Labs is dedicated to fighting the growing epidemic of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) by providing healthy, affordable, high-quality listening products. Founder Dave Russell learned that his youngest daughter had developed Noise Induced Hearing Loss with doctors identifying her headphone's excessive volume as the cause. Without a safe alternative to the damaging headphones on the market, Dave set out create the solution. Puro Sound Labs has since created the world's only studio-grade Bluetooth headphone that puts the safety of one's hearing first and recently named "safest and overall best kid's headphone" in The Wirecutter, a part of The New York Times Company. Puro Sound Labs is committed to building awareness and the pursuit of reducing the impact of NIHL by developing new products and technologies to provide a solution to this growing epidemic.
