When Icelandic tech developer Petur Olafsson discovered that 12.5% of kids between the ages of 6 and 19 suffer from hearing loss as a result of being exposed to excess volume from headphones, the idea for BuddyPhones was born. These kid-safe, kid-proof, and kid-friendly headphones have a built-in sound control circuit to cap the volume at levels recommended for children by the World Health Organization. The colourfully designed over-ear headsets are BPA- and phthalate-free and adhere to the most rigorous toy industry standards. To the relief of parents, BuddyPhones are also designed to withstand everything a child might throw at them, with waterproof and wireless options as well as a built-in audio splitting jack that lets up to four children plug into the same device at once. So, buddy up, sit back, and relax.
