85 dB limit protects ear drums from damage

Griffin Technology has announced MyPhones, a new headphone with an integrated volume limiter to protect against hearing loss for children. The headphones are designed with soft-rubber ear cushions that sit just over the ear, with an adjustable band for comfort. The primary feature is an 85 decibel limit on the volume, helping to ensure that sound can never go high enough to damage the ear drum. It also comes with a customizable carrying case, along with three swappable shell caps.

In addition to the pre-designed shell caps, children can also decorate their own with the included blank templates. They can also go online to myphoneskids.com and download or upload their own shell cap designs. The headphones connect using a standard 1/8-inch plug, while the cable is claimed to provide increased durability.

MyPhones are scheduled to be released in early October for $30.
