You now have a solution to providing hearing protection for children with sensitive hearing and kids that need hearing protection. The BanZ earBanZ hearing protectors effectively attenuate harmful loud noises without shutting out other ambient sounds.
earBanZ are easy to wear, with a low profile and no protruding parts that can catch on things. The wide, foam-filled cushions ensure that the set doesn't squeeze uncomfortably, and there is plenty of space for the ears inside the shells.

- Category 4 hearing protection
Make sure the child's ear is enclosed inside the space in the ear cup and that the cushions seal fully against the head around the full perimeter if the child's ear. Adjust the headband so that it sits comfortably over the top of the head.
NRR stands for Noise Reduction Rating, and SNR stands for Single Noise Ratio. Basically, these two ratings are used to give a measurement of the average decibel attenuation ( lowering of the noise level ) over a range of specified frequencies. They are calculated slightly different and because of this the SNR rating will come out higher than the NNR rating.
Will my child be able to hear anything with the ear muffs on?
Yes, your child will still be able to hear, this is important to their safety, however the dangerous levels of noise will be reduced. The less noise the child is exposed to, the less noise the ear muffs will let through. This also applies to ear plugs.
Although our kids earBanZ are rated for age 6 months and up, you may find you feel they are too tight for your younger infant's head. Have no worries! BanZ mini earBanZ are hearing protection designed with a newborn baby in mind.
The letters printed on the side of the earmuffs refer to various international safety standards:
ANSI S3.19 - The American National Standards Institute is a private, nonprofit organization that oversees the development of voluntary consensus standards for products, services, processes, systems, and personnel in the United States. Equivalent Australian companies include SAI Global and Standards Australia. S3.19 is the standard introduced by the ANSI to regulate hearing protection devices. BanZ earBanZ meet these requirements.
EN352-1: 1993 - This is the European Standard for hearing protection and hearing protectors, as well as protective clothing and other safety measures. BanZ earBanZ also meet this standard.
