Health and Safety
Is it safe to use SleepPhones® Wireless Bluetooth® technology? What about EMFs?
In a word, yes. We feel confident that all of our products, including the SleepPhones® Wireless, are safe. SleepPhones® generate much much less EMF (electromagnetic fields) than cell phones, so the risk is minimal. Dr Lai has written an extensive reply to this question, which can be found at the following link:
We want to point out that cell phones emit 200 times more power than the Bluetooth® chip that we use. So while the safety tips apply to cell phones, they do not apply to our Bluetooth® device. For Bluetooth® devices, the WHO (World Health Organization), CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), FCC (Federal Communications Commission), FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Bluetooth SIG (Bluetooth Special Interest Group) or IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) have not found it necessary to issue any safety advice.
How do I protect against hearing damage?
As with any headphones, you should not listen to sounds at a volume of 85 dB or higher. 85 dB is equal to the sound of a hairdryer or lawnmower. Studies show that you can tolerate only up to 8 hours a day of music at 85dB before risking hearing loss. For more information, please visit the following link:
Do SleepPhones® products contain latex?
No. Latex is derived from the rubber tree and exhibits proteins that can cause serious allergic reactions in some people. The SleepPhones® headband, the cables and cords, the chargers, and the speakers are all latex-free. The elasticity of the SleepPhones® headband is from spandex, which is completely synthetic.
