Menstuff® has compiled the following information on Peltor Kid's Ear Muffs (protectors).
Gwyneth Paltrow and her daughter Apple at Live 8 concert.
Peltor Kid hearing protectors effectively attenuate harmful loud noises without shutting out other ambient sounds. The hearing protector is easy to wear, with a low profile and no protruding parts that can catch on things. The wide, foam-filled ear cushions ensure that the set does not squeeze uncomfortable, and there is plenty of space for the ears inside the shells. The weight is also important to comfort. The Peltor Kid weighs just 140 grams and is based on the Peltor Optime 1, which has become even smaller and more convenient than before while giving even better protection. The Peltor Kid comes in two characteristic colours - neon pink (H510A-442-RE) and neon green (H510A-442-GB) - for high visibility and fun.
Sensitivity to noise varies from one indivdual to another. Children make up a special risk group. Sometimes we expose small children to a noisy environment without even thinking about the potential danger. They ride along in the motorboat, accompany Dad to the shooting range, "drive" the tractor with Grandad, listen to big sister's stereo and so on. Noise-induced damage can cause trouble sleeping and give rise to stress. Attention and learning capacity can be decreased. The risk of hearing damage increases with volume and with the length of time spent in the noisy environment. The character of the noise also influences the risk of damage.
