BuddyPhones are created by ONANOFF, a design and technology company taking its name from the most fundamental feature of all electronics: the on and off button.

Inspired by a friend looking for durable and safe headphones for his kids, they realised there weren’t many safe options on the market for children. Therefore they decided to give parents a peace of mind and provide a safe sound solution for little ones.

According to specialists, exposure to excessive levels of sound is proven to be damaging and can cause adverse long-term effect. Researchers who study hearing loss have found that a person who is exposed to noise levels higher than 85 decibels for a prolonged period of time is at risk for hearing loss. Children are exposed to dangerous levels of noise on a regular basis and many devices that children use have noise levels much higher than 85 decibels.

Their volume-limiting headphones keep noise levels down to World Health Organization recommended standards and look cool to boot. They also wanted to come up with a solution for parents whose little ones are constantly fighting over a device. For those that have more than one child at home and they have trouble sharing the ingenious BuddyCable audio splitter allows up to four kids to share one device, squabble-free.

BuddyPhones are designed to meet the everyday challenges an ordinary family member faces, and make life a little easier.
