When Your Hearing is Important But You Want to Really Enjoy Your Music

Believe it or not, hearing health is something that I think about often. I cover sensation and perception in psychology, including hearing. And my husband suffers from hearing loss from his military experience as well. It can be really frustrating when I hear a noise at night or my car is making a “funny sound” but he can’t hear it. I know it’s also really frustrating to us both when he can’t hear me at times as well.

Now that hearing loss is closer to me, preventing hearing loss has become even more important to me. When I came across Snug Play+ Kids Volume Limiting Headphones, I knew that I needed to check them out.

Although these volume limiting headphones are designed for children, they would fit some adults. They are adjustable. With the headband fully extended, they fit me just fine. They are nice quality. The ear cushions are very comfortable. The headband also has a nice cushion at the top (inside the headband) which makes them really comfortable to wear. The volume still gets to be reasonably loud. I don’t like my music too loud through headphones. These made music loud enough to really enjoy listening without feeling like your harming your hearing.

Using these volume limiting headphones could help you to enjoy music or audio from movies, etc while preserving your hearing health. You can also listen at a good volume without bothering those around you as the earphones provide good insulation as well.

They come in a good selection of colors. I chose the gray so it would be gender neutral and my niece and nephews could all enjoy taking a turn using them. They fold up so they can be stored easily and travel with you without concern of breaking.

I would definitely recommend these to those with children or adults with up to a medium sized head.

A Rewarding Experience with 1byone Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless In-Ear Headphones


This week in psychology, the students will be learning all about motivation. To help them better connect with the topic, I plan to also relate it back to conditioning. I often use conditioning in my own life to help with motivation.

It turned out that I gave myself a lot of work this week with grading the regular weekly reading logs, late papers, and a quiz. With the busy weekend and spring coming, my motivation to do work has been dwindling a bit. For this reason, I break up my work, and pair achievements with rewards for myself along the way.

One of the rewards I gave myself was to listen to some of my favorite music on my new 1byone Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless In-Ear Headphones, Sports Earphones with HD Stereo Sound & Modern, Sweat-Proof, Ergonomic Design. (Disclaimer: I received a free Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless In-Ear Headphone set from 1byone in exchange for writing an honest, and unbiased review.  All opinions are my own.

I have really put these to the test over the past few days and here is what I’ve found:

-They have amazing sound quality for listening to your favorite music (although I’m pretty sure even less than desirable music could sound good with these… seriously, outstanding quality!) Apparently this is due to them being Bluetooth 4.1, which is supported by apt-X HD and 6th generation CVC technology, to ensure high-fidelity bilateral stereo sound and clear speech.

-They have a good battery life. I’ve been listening to music on them quite a bit. Yesterday, I chatted with my sister during my hour-long car ride using these headphones as well, and they’re still going!

-They come with changeable fittings for a comfortable, more customized fit.

-Pairing with my device was quick and easy. The lady’s voice that tells you that the headset is turning on and off is also pleasant.

Given my experience, I would highly recommend these 1byone Bluetooth Wireless Headphones
