The Swedish fashion tech brand announces antimicrobial, vegan friendly youth headphones with safe premium audio
STOCKHOLM, July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Happy Plugs® is proud to announce Play, youth headphones that perfectly blends youngster’s entertainment needs with parents’ safety and quality expectations. Play is a wired and wireless experience specifically designed for the younger audience of ages 3 to 15 with a maximum enjoyment at safe volume levels for their delicate ears.
Prolonged listening at high volumes can over time even lead to noise-induced hearing loss. Play protects our next generation’s hearing by limiting harmful volumes by following the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendation of an 85dB-limited volume range. A recent study by the WHO showed that 19.5%, nearly 1 in 5 children between 12 and 19 years old suffer from hearing loss.
Play comes with Biomaster® antimicrobial technology, an incredibly effective way to reduce the growth of unwanted microbes that can cause degradation, discoloration, staining, and odors by up to 99.99%, The additive works 24/7 to protect the product surfaces, the inbuilt antimicrobial protection is effective for the lifetime of the product with no harmful effects*.
"We’re excited to reinvent how headphones are designed for the younger audience. The headphone industry has focused on meeting adult preferences and the younger user has often fallen short of the same high-quality experience. Play is made for youngsters so that they can experience entertainment, while giving parents peace of mind in safety", says Andreas Vural, founder of Happy Plugs.
"As CEO of a headphone company and a parent of a 4-year-old I see it as my duty to supply the global youngsters with safe listening. On top of protecting their hearing we add on unparalleled design, antibacterial technology and vegan friendly material to the global audience of almost 2 billion children below 15 years old" says Tobias Ekman, CEO of Happy Plugs
