Snuggly Rascals headphones are designed for use with day to day, battery powered portable audio devices.  Snuggly Rascals wired headphones meet the requirements of tests EN50332-1: 2013 and EN 50332-2: 2013 with a resulting sound pressure level of 85 decibels.  

Snuggly Rascals are designed with lower levels of volume than standard 'adult' headphones however, due the nature of the technology used in wired headphones, volume levels may vary depending on the amplification of the audio source and potentially exceed 85 decibels.  This link has a detailed explanation of headphone technology.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) guidance documents, the daily recommended safe volume level is below 85 decibels for a maximum duration of eight hours.  Some experts believe this level is too high for children over long periods, others believe this level should be higher as usage is unlikely to be for such long periods and volume levels of entertainment vary from second to second. 

We would advise checking the amplification levels of the audio device being used with our headphones and following our usage instructions to take regular breaks and avoid using at maximum volume where possible.  Adult supervision is also recommended.
