PuroPro Hybrid Active Noise Canceling Volume Limiting Headphones: Quality Audio and Hearing Protection

Headphones have become a larger part of our life — from video conference calls for our remote work to video games and moving streaming. While headphones are being used to hear better — there has been a growth in noise-canceling headphones to block out surrounding noise, too.

Working from home during COVID has made having a decent pair of headphones mandatory to remaining calm and peaceful.  Here is: PuroPro Hybrid Active Noise Canceling Volume Limiting Headphones: Quality Audio and Hearing Protection

Priced at $199, the Puro Sound Labs PuroPro Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling Volume Limiting Headphones provide quality audio along with hearing protection. Here’s my review.

Headphone Features

These are wireless, over-ear Bluetooth headphones. Features include 32h playtime, high-resolution audio, and memory foam ear cups.

The noise-canceling feature limits volume to 85dB and 95dB max volume, which goes a long way to protecting ears from permanent hearing damage. Organizations like OSHA believe that 85dB is the maximum safe sound listening level. These headphones give you eight hours of safe listening at 85dB and 50 minutes at 95dB.

The Puro Balanced Response® Curve is a proprietary technology that delivers clear audio and dynamic bass within those 85dB and 95dB volume limits. There are also two levels of ANC so you can adjust to ambient noise.

Level 1 has a deep noise reduction of 32dB while Level 2 gives you a general noise reduction of 15dB. Also, there are five microphones, including four for noise canceling and one for communicating via calls.

Pros and Cons

The best aspects of these headphones include its long battery life, simple device connection, its volume-limiting feature, audio quality, and the two levels of active noise canceling. The playtime with ANC is 28 hours and 32 without as well as 300 hours of standby time. Another plus is the foldable design. These are so much easier to carry around with you — and it’s unlikely you’ll sit on them in the car and break them.

On the downside, there are limited choices for personalization and design options, which more people like to see today in terms of colors and other design features.

The current design with protein leather and ear cups also may not suit everyone’s design preferences, especially since so many people are more used to in-ear buds. However, I found the ear cups comfortable, with no pressure or sweat from wearing them for over two hours.

The last con is that it would be good to have some other features like a mute button for when I’m using them on conference calls. Many other headphones offer that feature in this same price range.

In the Box

The headphones come with a hard case to protect them on-the-go as well as a 3.5mm limiter audio cable and charging cable.

Where to Buy

You can buy these headphones from the Puro Sound Labs website as well as from Amazon, Best Buy, Guitar Center, and other select online retailers. Puro Sound Labs has free delivery. They offer a one-year warranty and a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Final Thoughts

PuroPro offers headphones that work well for listening and for keeping sound away from our ears, protecting hearing in the process. These headphones are reasonably priced for the technology they offer in terms of the unique sound and noise-canceling features.

The foldable design makes it easy to take with you and use them while traveling.

Although it’s missing the feature — mute button — I find the audio quality, hearing protection,  and noise-canceling features much more valuable.
