Direct Sound E.A.R.PODS overview

  • 1Description

Designed to prevent hearing damage, the Direct Sound e.a.r.Pods Volume Limiting Headphones for Kids utilize battery-free, passive isolation with proprietary amplitude refinement technology to provide 33.4 dB of passive isolation and a volume limit of 85 dB (as recommended by OSHA).

The headphones feature 40mm moving-coil dynamic drivers to deliver a frequency response of 20 to 20,000 Hz into a 32 ohm load. The right-angle 40" (1.016 m) cord terminates in an 1/8" (3.5 mm) gold-plated plug with an offset to allow the headphones to work with smartphones and other mobile devices within protective cases.

The right earcup is identified with a red marking to make it easier to differentiate the right from the left. For comfort they feature a padded fully adjustable headband. They are user-friendly in terms of repairs as well as foldable for easy transport. The headphones are manufactured in the USA.

    Direct Sound E.A.R.PODS reviews

    e.a.r.Pods Volume Limiting Headphones for Kids is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faint Sound - No Limit (not full refund given when asked) There is no limit on these headphones despite their claims. I have a very loud minijack on my docking station and as I turn up the volume, there is no point at which the sound levels off. In fact, I can produce sounds so loud it hurts my ear. I wrote to Direct Sound who told me actually the limit is 90 dB and not 85 as advertised. At this point I ordered a professional Sound Pressure Level meter. I managed to measure 93 dB!!! What is worse, the sound limit is nothing more than some sort of resistor. Not only does this mean there is no limit, but it also means that using these on a mobile phone means you will not be able to play very loudly, as medium volume on your phone produces sounds that are hardly possible to make out. So I decided to just use my Sound Pressure Level meter together with regular headphones and measure how loud they are with my phone and then remember the sound setting that produces a volume that is safe to listen to. I shipped the headphones back from the UK to the US. I was refunded the cost of the headphones but not the customs, as they had promised by email. You're better off with a SPL than these headphones in my opinion, meaning you are also free to use any other headphone manufacturer. I got a SPL called Mercury Digital which has product code 600.652.
