Ems for Kids FAQ
The letters printed on the side of the earmuffs 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 earmuffs 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 earmuffs. These are designed specifically for babies.
Should you find the earmuffs 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 the earmuffs for a while, they will have stretched by a small amount, making them a bit less tight when worn.
Ems for Kids earmuffs are a “one size fits all” product. Each side of the earmuffs 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 earmuffs grow with your child.
Ems for Kids earmuffs 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 earmuffs are the world’s first hearing protection earmuffs 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 earmuff 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 earmuffs are designed for babies from newborn through to 18 months of age.
Ems for Bubs earmuffs come with a removable headband. These headbands are adjustable in size, but we understand that sometimes people like to use different colours/patterns. See “How do Ems for Bubs Earmuffs work?” The earmuff 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.
