Ems for Kids FAQ
The letters printed on the side of the ear defenders 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. Ems for Kids 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. Ems for Kids also meet this standard.
Ems for Kids can be worn by children of all ages. However, we recommend that they are not used on children less than 6 months old. This is due to the fact that newborns’ heads are quite soft, and the ear defenders are a reasonably tight fit. PLEASE NOTE: This is a RECOMMENDATION only. We have had customers use Ems for Kids on children less than 6 months, with no problems whatsoever. For this reason, we created Ems for Bubs, the world’s first baby ear defenders. These are designed specifically for babies.
Should you find the ear defenders to be a bit too tight, they can be stretched slightly. Simply place two chairs back to back, and stretch the earmuffs over the two chairs. After leaving them for a while, they will have stretched by a small amount, making them a bit less tight when worn.
Ems for Kids ear defenders are a “one size fits all” product. Each side of the ear defenders is adjustable in length. Once placed on the head, each ear covering can be lengthened simply by pulling the ear covering downward. As a result, Ems for Kids ear defenders grow with your child.
Ems for Kids ear defenders currently come in 4 different colours – blue, pink, mint, and silver. We’re always adding to our range, so be sure to check back soon to see some more colour additions.
Ems for Bubs FAQ
Ems for Bubs ear defenders are the world’s first hearing protection ear defenders for infants, and use our patented design to ensure that there is less pressure placed on a baby’s skull. The headband design disperses pressure more evenly around the head, which results in a firm, yet, comfortable fit. The headband can be inserted/removed by lifting the clip on each ear defender cup and sliding the headband in or out. Our adjustable headband design allows you to adjust the size of the headband to fit your baby’s head. We use soft, smooth velcro to ensure there’s no discomfort on your baby’s skin.
Ems for Bubs ear defenders are designed for babies from newborn through to 18 months of age.
Ems for Bubs ear defenders come with a removable headband. These ear defenders are adjustable in size, but we understand that sometimes people like to use different colours/patterns. See “How do Ems for Bubs ear defenders work?” The cups themselves are the same size.
At this stage, the Ems for Bubs headbands cannot be used on Ems for Kids. The Ems for Kids faux-leather covered headband is a permanent adjustable fixture.
We recommend always supervising your child when using Ems for Kids products. While the noise reducing properties of our products can help some babies and children fall asleep, particularly in louder situations, under no circumstances do we recommend leaving your baby or child unattended while they are wearing ear defenders.
