Protective Earmuffs for 2-10+ years
Banz Protective Earmuffs are designed for use by children from two years to 10-plus years (Please see our Mini Muffs range for children under two years).
As well as providing superior hearing protection, the comfy design of Banz Protective Earmuffs makes them the most suitable ear defenders for kids available in New Zealand.
All Banz 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 dulling loud noise to a safe level.
The wide, foam-filled cushions ensure that the set doesn’t squeeze and that there is plenty of space for the ears inside the shells. As each set weighs in at just 190 grams, children find Banz Protective Earmuffs comfy and easy to wear.
|When would my child need earmuffs?|
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.
Kids in the news have been spotted wearing Banz earmuffs, including Prince George, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s daughter North West, Kelly Clarkson’s children, Pink’s daughter Willow and son Jameson, Beyonce and Jay Z’s Blue Ivy, Dave Grohl’s daughter, Michael Phelps’ son Boomer at the Rio Olympics… so on-trend!
