KultureCity Sensory Inclusive Certified Logo

Join Puro Sound Labs and KultureCity to grow awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with autism. Puro Sound Labs is donating additional PuroCalm earmuffs to KultureCity for each product sold in the month of April.

Puro Sound Labs, the world’s leading manufacturer of premium, safe children’s headphones today announces their support of April Autism Month with KultureCity. In addition to donation of thousands of PuroCalm hearing protection that are currently offered in over 150 venues in KultureCity’s Sensory Inclusion bags, Puro Sound Labs is also donating additional earmuffs to KultureCity for each product sold in the month of April. PuroCalm earmuffs are available in pink, cool gray and green, have a list price of $29.99 and are for sale now at Amazon.com and PuroSound.com.

The PuroCalm sound-isolating earmuffs are tailored to provide 27dB of safe, comfortable, broad-spectrum noise reduction to protect from harmful noises in loud or disruptive environments, or where limiting distraction is needed. The Puro Sound Labs award-winning BT2200, PuroQuiet headphones and PuroCalm hearing protection are the first products to be Certified Sensory InclusiveTM by KultureCity. Especially designed and sized for people aged 1 to 192 years old, PuroCalm earmuffs feature heavily padded, rotating and foldable ear pads that offer travel convenience and added comfort. Puro Sound Labs is proud to partner with KultureCity, an organization that provides sensory-inclusive spaces and universal accessibility for people with disabilities. The healthy hearing headphone company provides sensory relief, with their PuroCalm noise-reducing earmuffs in KultureCity’s 150-plus sensory initiatives at major sporting and theatre venues.

Entertainment venues of note that are now offering the KultureCity Sensory Inclusion Bags include: Gila River and Talking Stick Arenas, Arizona; Infinity Park and Pepsi Center, Colorado; Golden 1, Honda and SAP Centers, California; Nationals Park, D.C.; American Airlines Arena and Amway Center, Florida; State Farm Arena, Georgia; United Center and Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Illinois; KFC Yum Center, Kentucky; Smoothie King Center, Louisiana; Xfinity Center, Massachusetts; Comerica Park and Little Ceasars Arena, Michigan; PNC Arena and Spectrum Center, North Carolina; MetLife Stadium and Prudential Center, New Jersey; T-Mobile Arena, Nevada; Barclays Center and Madison Square Garden, New York; Progressive Field and Quicken Loans Arena, Ohio; Chesapeake Energy Center, Oklahoma; Rose Quarter Moda Center and Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Oregon; Heinz Field and Wells Fargo Center, Pennsylvania; AT&T Center, Texas; Bridgestone Arena, Tennessee; and Wisconsin Sports Complex, Wisconsin.

PuroCalm features two super soft and lightweight ear pads that are cushioned with foam and can rest around little ears gently. Thanks to the smooth, sliding arm and swiveling ear cups, the adjustable design ensures a perfect fit over a child’s head, creating less tension and enhancing comfort. The earmuffs fold into a compact, easy-to-carry size, while kid-friendly colors further enhance the appeal. The noise-isolating earmuffs reduce a broad spectrum of external sounds by 27 dB. This creates a safe hearing level at concerts, sporting venues, zoos, aquariums, playgrounds and other locations that might be too loud for extended hearing exposure. The noise reduction can be useful for children trying to avoid distraction while studying, sleeping on planes or simply trying to find relief from sensory overload in many entertainment venues.

Puro Sound’s history of sensory relief through volume-limited headphones brought them to the attention of KultureCity, the nation’s leading organization promoting autism awareness and acceptance. Puro and KultureCity have partnered to help bring awareness to sensory sensitivity and provide an alternative that will benefit a larger audience while also promoting hearing health. Sensory sensitivity can interfere with an individual’s ability to appreciate loud public entertainment venues or events, which, in turn, increases the individual’s social isolation. A pilot study showed that improved attention to these sensitivities, the creation of quiet zones and provision of “sensory bags” with products like Puro Sound’s PuroCalm Earmuffs improved an individual’s overall interaction and quality of experience.

“Puro Sound Labs continues to find ways to provide noise relief, be it at a sporting event, aquarium or maybe just a study session that requires fewer distractions," states Dave Russell, Puro Sound Labs CEO. “We’re proud to partner with organizations like KultureCity to increase awareness, understanding and acceptance of autism and to provide technology that helps autists comfortably experience the live events that most of us take for granted.”

About PURO SOUND LABS

Established in 2014, Puro Sound Labs is dedicated to fighting the growing epidemic of noise-induced hearing loss by providing healthy, affordable, high-quality listening products. Founder Dave Russell learned that his youngest daughter had developed noise-induced hearing loss, with doctors identifying her headphones' excessive volume as the likely cause. Without a safe alternative to the damaging headphones on the market, Dave set out to create the solution. Puro Sound Labs has since created the world's only studio-grade Bluetooth headphone that puts the safety of one's hearing first. Puro Sound Labs is committed to building awareness and the pursuit of reducing the impact of NIHL by developing new products and technologies to provide a solution to this growing epidemic.
