I bought these recently for my 10year old who was struggling with the back noise in the classroom and they have been amazing! I’ve been so impressed that I’ve bought myself a pair!
My daughter finds it hard to explain but thinks these are very comforting. She can easily insert them after a bit of practise. She has had glasses since a young age so is used to keeping them safe in the pouch when she doesn't want to wear them.
It's hard for me to understand but it reduces sounds that might be distracting or annoying BUT without reducing hearing. It seems to be things that people might not notice like the fridge or freezer cooling, the washing machine, people chewing or drinking, me in flip flops (!!!). She put them in during heavy rainfall but not necessarily because that sound bothers her but because she would have tuned out of class and just listened to the rain.
It seems weird and like it's just a placebo but when you think how relaxing it is to be in the middle of nowhere or just how quiet it sounds during a power cut it makes more sense.
Thank you so much! We can now eat dinner again as a family thanks to calmer kids my son can enjoy a family dinner. He rated then 9.5/10. The only eating noise that wasn’t cancelled fully was nachos 😊. We have a much happier household. Would highly recommend for kids with sensitive hearing.
