With a musician husband and as an indie label owner with a significant penchant for live music myself (on longterm hiatus, family first), baby “noise cancellation” headphones were one of the first things on our registry. No, we haven’t yet toted our son along to concerts (in fact we haven’t been to many ourselves in the past year since he was born); but I knew full well that in all practicality, an occasional sound-check would be unavoidable in our lines of work. Finding the right-sized headphones was no easy chore. I think I read over a hundred customer reviews and endless specs before deciding on the Junior Earmuff by Peltor. They aren’t noise cancellation headphones in the sense that they provide white noise to cancel outside sounds. They are technically barriers that muffle dangerous loud noise–much better for baby.
