HiFiMan Edition S headphones are in many ways, a very special pair of headphones. They are the cheapest headphones made by the famous manufacturer of high-end planar magnetic headphones.

Looking for a great pair of kids Bluetooth headphones with an amazing set of features? Puro Sound Labs PuroQuiet kids Bluetooth headphones are arguably the best option. They might be made for children but their performance and their features are very much on par with headphones made for adults.  Volume-limiting headphones for children were not a big deal back in the 90s. We all used to listen to our Walkmans and portable CD players at high volumes and we didn’t care. We were stupid and irresponsible, and our parents had no way to control our music listening habits all the time. Some of my friends experienced the first signs of noise-induced hearing loss at the age of 15. Luckily, today, there’s an easy way to prevent this from happening to your child.
