Do you know someone that may be Auditory Hypersensitive?
Our earmuffs are ideal for Little Super Heroes that have Auditory Hypersensitivity and find that events or busy environments easily put them into sensory overload.
'Auditory Overload' is when the brain becomes so overwhelmed by the amount of sound information it needs to process, that it:
This overload may happen more easily to some people (eg. those with Autism, ADHD or Sensory Processing Disorder), as their brain can be literally structurally different to a neurotypical brain, and therefore struggle to integrate the sensory information coming in the way it should. Therefore it may be paying WAY too much attention to the sounds in the environment... rather than ignoring sounds that are not important (gee... thanks brain! ).
Research and observation now shows that the issue isn't necessarily just really loud noise, or sudden noise. It can just be a few different things going quietly at once (like conversations, music, kids playing nearby, a dog barking a few houses away, birds chirping over the back fence, and a dishwasher or similar quiet appliance going), that can really affect someone's overload and ability to regulate themselves!
"Most headphones are huge on [my son] so it's great that these fit snuggly. They block out more noise than standard ones so he's able to concentrate more." - Annette
