Ear Protection


Protect your child's ears!

The hearing of babies and toddlers is not yet fully developed and is therefore particularly sensitive. They perceive noise and sounds louder than adults, especially noises above 85 decibels, e.g. at a football match or rock concert, at the airport or during fireworks, which can cause hearing damage. Our hearing protection models SilentGuard Baby and SilentGuard Kids prevent hearing damage so your little darling can accompany you everywhere without danger.


Children who are constantly exposed to noise frequently develop physical and psychological problems. The spectrum ranges from delays in learning to speak and read, to reduced motivation to learn, to increased blood pressure and sleep disorders.

Another typical cause of hearing damage in young children is blast trauma, caused by single instances of loud noise exposure such as firing toy guns near the baby's head or fireworks. Continuous exposure to music can also lead to irreversible hearing damage in children.

This is a widespread problem: a study by the Federal Environment Agency in Germany found that 12.8% of children aged 8 to 14 have a hearing loss of more than 20 decibels (dB) in at least one ear and for at least one sound. This applies to medium and high tones, the frequency range in which noise-induced hearing damage is most prevalent. (Federal Environment Agency (Umweltbundesamt): KUS 2003/06)


Noises as low as 60dB, such as those emitted when vacuuming or by conversations in the vicinity, lead to acute concentration problems and stress if we are exposed to them constantly. The stress often manifests itself in poor sleep and a weakened immune system. In other words, noise can make us sick more often. Noise above 80dB, such as that emitted at public festivals or by passing trains, immediately stresses the body. It becomes painful in the 120dB range, the jackhammer is only just below that - sometimes these values are exceeded at concerts near loudspeakers. While noises up to 120dB only develop their destructive effect in the long term, a single noise above 135dB can permanently and irreparably damage hearing. A so-called "blast trauma" can lead to permanent deafness, beeping, hissing, whistling or even the loss of part of the hearing ability. A toy gun that children have carelessly ignited near their ear, an exploding New Year's Eve firecracker, and even a slap directly to the ear are typical triggers for such bang traumas.


The reer hearing protection models "SilentGuard" reliably insulate against sound. For this purpose, the so-called SNR (Single Number Rating) is determined. The attenuation value, i.e. the reduction of the sound level, is given in dB (decibels) and describes the difference between the volume in front of the ear and behind the hearing protector, i.e. in front of the eardrum. 
Example: A volume level of 95dB is present in a workplace. The attenuation value of the hearing protector is 25 dB. This means 70 dB still arrives at the employee's eardrum (95dB - 25dB = 70dB).
The SilentGuard Baby has an SNR of 29, meaning that the device reduces sound by an average of 29 dB. The 80dB of a public festival becomes 51dB, which does not even correspond to the noise of a conversation.
The attenuation performance of a hearing protector varies depending on the frequency of the sounds. That is why the HML values are also given. They indicate the attenuation performance (in dB) at high (H), medium (M) and low sounds (L). The SilentGuard Baby achieves H: 37, M: 26 and L: 19 and is thus the front-runner among the hearing protection models on the German market.
