Introducing LimitEar

The ultimate solutions for all headphone and earpiece users

The use of headphones and earpieces is at an all time high. Consumers listening at home or on the move, professionals working with the latest audio equipment all face one common danger: Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL). Regular exposure to reproduced sound for long periods of time can cause severe and irreversible hearing damage.

LimitEar Ltd is a UK-based company specialising in technologies that have been specifically designed to help protect all headphone and earpiece users from NIHL. You owe it to yourself and to those around you to embrace safe listening practice and in addition to comply with the latest health and safety legislation.

LimitEar has technologies to suit both individual users with their own headphones (or earpieces) and also those that share equipment.
