SurfEars Junior 2.0 is an ear plug developed for young surfers and swimmers, designed to keep their ears safe while being able to hear, speak and enjoy their time in the water. SurfEars earplugs let sound in and keep water out. They come with changeable parts in different sizes that allow you to customise them for your ears in order to find a comfortable and secure fit. Suitable for surfing, swimming, white water kayaking, diving, wake boarding and other water activities.
Save your kids ears from getting exostoses, commonly known as surfer’s ear (broad-based bone outgrowth that can narrow the ear canals). It can result in recurrent ear infections and pain, or conductive hearing impairment, and can eventually lead to requiring surgical removal. According to the Sydney Centre for ear, nose and throat, the best preventative is the regular use of earplugs to avoid exposure to cold or windy conditions when surfing.
Surfears Junior 2.0 includes several product enhancements which improve the overall comfort and usability of the ear plugs for young surfers:
Made for Small Ears – With two sizes of wings, Junior 2.0 will fit the ears of most children from 5-12 years.
Premium Case & Eco Packaging – Junior 2.0 comes with a high quality silicone case that helps store the product safely and hygienically.
Improved Leash & Color Coding – redesigned leash for quicker and easier attachment. Left/right plug color coding for foolproof fitting
Softer Tips with Improved Water Seal – The silicone tips have been redesigned to achieve a better seal while also increasing comfort. They’re thinner, softer and conform to the shape of the ear more easily.
Clearer Sound & Tougher Construction – with an increased active mesh area, Junior 2.0 has better acoustic performance compared to its predecessor.
Improved Fit & Comfort – Redesigned for improvement fit and comfort, Junior 2.0 features asymmetrical fit for left and right ears. The sound canal points both forward and upwards, creating a more natural fit in your ear.
SurfEars have close to zero acoustic loss in the frequency range of human speech while the best competitor cuts away about 20-30dB. To give you a reference, 30dB is roughly the difference between the loudest and lowest volume setting on your smartphone. That’s a pretty big difference!
