Being a mom of a kiddo with sensory integration disorder can make for some interesting days. One of our biggest challenges is noise/sounds that seem perfectly normal to you or I but are extremely distressing to Peyton. Lucid Audio has created the Kids HearMuffs Trio and let me tell you, it’s a lifesaver. Here are a few of the reason Peyton’s loves them –
They don’t echo!
If you’ve ever tried to use noise canceling headphones a common complaint is that there is an echo. For some, like Peyton, that’s even more disturbing than the noise they are trying to escape from. Peyton has stated that she does not hear an echo with the HearMuffs Trio, she claims she has no echo!
They are adjustable
Peyton can easily adjust the HearMuffs for the perfect fit every time. For a little girl, this is huge! With each hairstyle means we need a different fit. If she’s wearing a pony or braids or her hair down with a headband each one requires an adjustment to the HearMuffs.
They are headphones
Peyton loves being able to listen to her music or iPad while wearing the HearMuffs. She can easily switch between using them for listening to her shows/music or using them to cancel out noise and still participate in the conversation. We have even taken the HearMuffs with us to large events where the performances may be a little loud and cause sensory overload at times. The HearMuffs have worked great! The loud bangs are muffled to an acceptable level for Peyton and she doesn’t miss out on any of the action!
As a mom I love the Kids HearMuffs Trio for all the same reason Peyton does but also that it does more than one thing. The HearMuffs are for noise canceling and can be used as headphones, that’s less things I need to worry about taking with me while we are out and about. I love that there are 2 modes on the HearMuffs – conversation mode allows Peyton to block out the bothersome noises while still participating in conversations and the passive setting reduces the loud noises so she can enjoy being at an event with me. The fact they are adjustable and comfortable is a major plus in my book too! Peyton will be able to use these Hearmuffs for years to come. In fact, she’ll probably end up taking them to school and using them in place of her current headphones.
Kids HearMuffs Trio can be purchased online or at select retailers. If you have a child that is sensitive to sounds or just want a high-quality headphone that can be used for various occasion I highly suggest checking them out.
