“The enormous popularity of MP3 players and other portable audio devices may be dramatically accelerating hearing damage among young people. According to a recent article in the Journal of the American Medical Association(1), one in five teenagers today is already experiencing significant hearing loss,” said Med Dyer, co-founder and chief technology officer at dB Logic. “dB Logic products are engineered to help protect your ears without sacrificing great audio or style, and make a perfect gift for any teenager, adult or child.”

dB Logic’s proprietary sound pressure level (SPL) limiting technology, SPL2, limits volume levels using advanced circuitry, eliminating the need for bulky battery-powered processors required by competitive sound pressure limiting products. It also provides consumers with the industry’s highest-quality, lowest-distortion listening experience that can help avoid hearing damage due to long-term exposure to high sound pressure levels.

dB Logic headphones and earphones integrate an advanced SPL2 monitoring circuit that regulates the volume where needed, while still keeping the musical content largely unchanged. By maintaining the integrity of the sound, the limiting is virtually transparent to the listener, and the audio content does not sound clipped or distorted.

Pricing, Availability and Colors

dB Logic headphones and earphones for adults will be available in early November on the dB Logic website (www.dblogic.com) and from selected retailers for $29.99 MSRP and $39.99 MSRP. dB Logic for Kids products will be available for $39.99 MSRP.

dB Logic’s headphones and earphones for adults will be available in a variety of fashionable colors, including Passion (red), Envy (green), Salmon (pink), and Sky (blue), black, and silver. dB Logic for Kids products will feature stylish prints and patterns, as well as a padded head band to allow for maximum comfort on smaller heads.
