Listen Carefully

Save Your Ears – Listen Carefully

Hearing Damage is irreversible and can easily happen after listening to music through earphones at too high a level for extended
periods of a time.

Low performance earphones do not efficiently reproduce the dynamic range of a recording. This results with the listener turning up
the volume to unsafe levels to hear more of the music resulting in Listening Fatigue and Hearing Loss.

Low Performance can be a result of Low Quality Components, Poor Air Seal in the Ear Canal and Designs based on aesthetics
and not efficiency
. PNY is incorporating technologies that maximize performance at Safer Listening Levels.
