In The Independent UK newspaper's review, our headphones have been recommended for home schooling, and here's why.
Our 2021 CES Award winning BuddyPhones School+ has received a lot of attention since its recent launch. When the schools started closing due to the current pandemic, we saw the increasing need for headphones that can serve the young student in a way they deserve.
With the shift to home schooling the use of headphones has significantly increased on a day-to-day basis. This is a cause for concern because not all headphones have the volume limiting feature and kids are being exposed to excessive noise for long periods of time which can cause hearing loss. Even after online classes have finished, the headphones will continue to be used for other leisurely activities throughout the day. Monitoring the time that your kids use headphones is a healthy practise, but with volume limiting you can put your mind at rest.
Our solution to this problem is the fantastic School+ that has the volume capped at 85dB as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). To meet the demands of online learning we've fitted them with a high performance beam-mic with passive noise cancellation which minimizes unwanted background noises so that your child's voice can be heard clearly by others. If you are also working from home, you can rest assured that you won’t be disturbing your child’s lesson.
An excellent feature is that the mic can be detached, turning it into a pair of conventional everyday headphones for your child to listen to their favorite music or video.
