JUNIOR 2.0: The Best Kid's Ear Plug Ever
Our new Junior 2.0 earplugs include all the technical improvements and upgrades from our SurfEars 3.0 earplugs to make them more comfortable, more ergonomic and easier to use. The plugs are designed to help prevent common problems like swimmers ear (otitis externa), surfers ear (exostosis) and ear infections but still let sound in!
“I wish I had plugs like this when I was a grom,” says pro surfer, WCT competitor and our SurfEars ambassador Conner Coffin. “If there was something around that I actually wanted to use, I wouldn’t have the painful ear problems I have now. I’d for sure encourage any kids and parents to make them an essential part of their surfing set up.”
The improvements to the SurfEars JUNIOR earplugs include…
IMPROVED ERGONOMICS & COMFORT
The JUNIOR 2.0 has been redesigned from the ground up to fit and feel better in the ear than the original. Now there’s an asymmetrical design for both left & right ears. The sound canal points both forward and upwards, creating a much more natural fit.
TWO DIFFERENT SIZEs IN ONE PACK
Two interchangeable silicone sealing gels (small and extra small) come in the one pack, meaning they can be fitted better to smaller or larger kids ears. Better yet, as groms grow they can move from the extra small gels to the next size up, getting longer life from the one set of plugs. (Fits most kids ages 4-12).
SOFTER SEALING GELS WITH IMPROVED WATER SEAL
The silicone sealing gels have been reengineered to create a much better seal while also increasing wearing comfort. They conform to the shape of the ear more easily because they are thinner, softer and shaped differently.
TOUGHER CONSTRUCTION & CLEARER SOUND
JUNIOR 2.0 has an increased acoustic performance when compared to the original JUNIOR ear plugs or any other ear plug designed for kids. This is because of the larger acoustic mesh area which lets in sound while keeping water out. The groms can claim their last ‘sick barrel’ to all their mates while feeling like they’re being heard and hearing the responses.
IMPROVED LEASH & COLOUR CODING
The JUNIOR 2.0 leash is now just as strong, durable, comfortable and easy to adjust as the SurfEars 3.0 leash. Just like the SurfEars 3.0 plugs, JUNIOR 2.0 is colour-coded too, making it much easier to remember to put the right plug in the right ear.
SurfEars JUNIOR 2.0 comes with a high-quality silicone pouch to store the plugs safely and hygienically. The magnet clip makes accessing or storing JUNIOR 2.0 effortless while the drainage holes allow water to escape. There’s even a carabiner clip on top making it easy to attach inside backpacks so things don’t get lost.
ECO FRIENDLY PACKAGING
The packaging has been reduced to the bare minimum, using only recycled paper and vegetable ink for minimal carbon footprint. A better way to ensure our ocean stays healthier for the groms as they grow.
All of this creates an easier way to ensure grommets of all ages avoid the need for potential ear surgery later in life, as well as reducing the chance of frequent ear infections, which would keep them out of the surf. Enjoy our oceans and waterways for longer.
