Banz Hear No Blare Earmuffs for 2+ years feature a Class 4 rating (only one grade less than industrial-strength ear muffs!), are comfy for kids to wear while looking great and ensuring their precious hearing is protected in loud situations.
All Banz Carewear earmuffs are sound-dampening earmuffs, which means your child can still hear you – it wouldn’t be safe, otherwise! The earmuffs do their job by reducing loud noise to a safe level.

Should you find the earmuffs to be a bit too tight, they can be stretched slightly. Simply place two chairs (or similar) back to back, open the earmuffs out and stretch them over the two chairs. Leave them for a few hours or even overnight. You’ll find they will have stretched by a small amount, making them less tight when worn. With use, the earmuffs will loosen up and ‘grow’ with your child.
