Ear Saver!

Want to help prevent hearing damage that can easily occur from listening to loud music with an iPod, MP3 player, or Walkman at unsafe volume levels?  Check out the new Mack’s® EarSaver™, an inexpensive adapter designed to reduce the output of standard earphones or earbuds of portable music players.  To use the EarSaver, simply plug one end of the product into the 3.5mm jack of the audio device.  Next, plug the earphones into the other end of the EarSaver.  With the EarSaver in place, the overall volume of most portable music players will be reduced by approximately 18 dB.  The EarSaver retails for about $12 and is available in either white or orange with the orange one easier for parents to see that their child is actually using the device.  If you are looking for another similar option, be sure to check out my August 2010 blog post “Earbuds Available that Limit Audio Device Output” which showcases the KidzSafe earbuds and headphones.
