Protecting Kids’ Ears With ETY•Kids Safe Listening Earphones

by BB

Children read from tablets and other mobile devices; that’s today’s reality. When parents and kids visit bookstores, retailers can now present ETY•Kids Safe Listening Earphones, one of the smartest, and most important mobile device accessories available.

ETY•Kids earphones protect young ears from excessive volume, and are a critical product for a generation listening to portable entertainment and communication devices almost exclusively via earphones.

ETY•Kids Safe-Listening Earphones are engineered for safe sound output while maintaining Etymotic's exceptional sound quality. By controlling earphone sensitivity, it is not necessary to restrict the volume setting on the player. Sound heard through ETY•Kids earphones will not exceed safe levels. Because ETY•Kids earphones block background noise and provide high-definition sound quality, kids will be able to hear every detail, and won't complain that the volume is too low.

And as a great promotion, Etymotic will offer booksellers free copies of Hu’s Hoo & The Zoo, an original hardcover children’s book about an animal band and their quest for fame and fortune, which includes a CD of original music by the band. The books and CDs are free gifts for retailers’ customers who purchase ETY•Kids earphones. Etymotic signed Hu the Owl, lead singer and songwriter of Hu’s Hoo & The Zoo as an artist endorser. Under the terms of the deal, Hu will wear ETY•Kids t-shirts on stage during performances and at press and publicity events.

“Every kid should have a pair of ETY•Kids,” said Hu in an official statement. “I use them on stage as in-ear monitors, and I hook them up to my music devices for listening at home and on the road. I love music, but there’s no way I’m ending up like that poor guy from The Who…” said Hu. Hu’s Hoo & The Zoo have been hailed as “stars on the rise” by music education magazine In Tune Monthly. Music Alive! magazine said, “Hu’s Hoo & The Zoo are beasts!”
