The EM's 4 Bubs noise cancelling earmuffs fit easily around an adjustable elastic band. The design evenly distributes pressure so that your baby’s soft, developing skull is safe from uneven compression.

About Noise-Induced Hearing Loss
Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is essentially that – loss of hearing that is caused by exposure to loud noises. When exposed to loud noise the tiny hairs inside the ear (more specifically the cochlea) are damaged. These hairs can repair themselves if only a small amount of damage is done, however over time repeated exposure to loud noise can cause permanent damage.
NIHL can be caused by a one-time exposure to an intense “impulse” sound, such as an explosion, or by continuous exposure to loud sounds over an extended period of time, such as noise generated in a woodworking shop.
The loudness of sound is measured in units called decibels. For example, the humming of a refrigerator is 40 decibels, normal conversation is approximately 60 decibels, and city traffic noise can be 85 decibels. Sources of noise that can cause NIHL include motorcycles, firecrackers, and small firearms, all emitting sounds from 120 to 150 decibels. Long or repeated exposure to sounds at or above 85 decibels can cause hearing loss. The louder the sound, the shorter the time period before NIHL can occur. Sounds of less than 75 decibels, even after long exposure, are unlikely to cause hearing loss.
Below is a table that outlines different noisy activities and the exposure times until hearing damage.

NIHL is 100 percent preventable.All individuals should understand the hazards of noise and how to practice good hearing health in everyday life. To protect your hearing:
Know which noises can cause damage (those at or above 85 decibels).
Wear earplugs or other hearing protective devices when involved in a loud activity
Be alert to hazardous noise in the environment.
Protect the ears of children who are too young to protect their own.
Make family, friends, and colleagues aware of the hazards of noise.
About Em's 4 Kids Em's 4 Kids was started in Brisbane, Australia by Daniel & Kate. Daniel is a professional musician, and as a result, their newborn daughter was often exposed to high levels of noise. Not wanting to damage her hearing, they sought to purchase some form of "child-friendly" hearing protection - it proved hard to come by. Out of this, Em's 4 Kids was born.
Em's 4 Kids are designed BY parents, FOR parents. Using high quality materials, and eye catching design and colors, Em's are perfect for any parent wanting to protect little ears from big noise!
Why do children need earmuffs?
This is a question that we get asked quite often! In the first years of life, a child's hearing is particularly sensitive to loud noise, be it intermittently or frequently. And since hearing damage is permanent, it's necessary to take every possible precaution to ensure that your child's hearing is protected when in noisy environments.
