How will I know if they are fitted correctly?
Make sure the child's ear is enclosed inside the space in the ear cup and that the cushions seal fully against the head around the full perimeter of the child's ear. Adjust the headband so that it sits comfortably over the top of the head.
What does NRR and SNR stand for and what do they mean?
NRR stands for Noise Reduction Rating, and SNR stands for Single Noise Ratio. Basically, these two ratings are used to give a measurement of the average decibel attenuation ( lowering of the noise level ) over a range of specified frequencies. They are calculated slightly differently and, because of this, the SNR rating will come out higher than the NNR rating.
Will my child be able to hear anything with the ear muffs on?
Yes, your child will still be able to hear, this is important to their safety, however the dangerous levels of noise will be reduced. The less noise the child is exposed to, the less noise the ear muffs will let through.
