I have seen some for children that are being marketed as volume-controlled. Surely all children’s headphones have always had controlled output? Would I have checked that to protect their hearing? Probably not but my husband would have. That is probably a bid for the two-parent family where each has a lot to give. It is also a note to government regulations where you only hear (excuse the pun) when something goes wrong.
What about volume control for adults? You see I can’t tell if it is too loud unless the teenager appears with his version of sign language about blasting his ears off! Maybe if I had had volume-control earlier, my brain would have trained itself to judge volume better. What do you think?
Posts are shorter at the moment as I’m on a promise to finish the ebook on hearing.
