Armor for Ears
Outdoor concert season in Brooklyn is definitely a family affair. However, the venue I went to this weekend was louder than most. Just as I was beginning to fret over the eardrums of the cute kids sitting nearby, their parents unpacked kids’ hearing protection earmuffs from Peltor, which are made to reduce loud noise by 20 decibels, without blocking other ambient sound. The kids wore them with no complaints and seemed much happier for it. I wondered if they could sense the relief of all the surrounding adults. Truthfully though, I think they just liked the bright colors their earmuffs came in.
