Yes. Mbrio’s patented SoundSafe™ technology ensures that the volume is always safe for baby, even if your phone is playing at maximum volume. The precision-molded layer of silicone around the earbud reduces sound levels by up to 30 decibels (depending on frequency and volume) so it never exceeds 75 decibels, as recommended by the CDC, WHO and NIOSH (the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health). It’s failsafe as it cannot be bypassed or turned off.
Mbrio’s patented SoundSafe™ technology allows you to play music at any volume - it will be safe for baby.
The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend placing headphones or loudspeakers directly on mom’s belly while pregnant. Mbrio has been specifically designed to keep the sound source close to mom’s belly without being in direct contact. It does not matter if there is small gap between Mbrio and mom’s skin – your baby can still hear the music. Additionally, Mbrio clips to your waistband, so there’s no need for the sticky pads used by pregnancy speaker systems.
Mbrio’s effectiveness at reducing earbud audio to safe levels has been tested by an independent fully-certified Nationally Registered Testing Laboratory (NRTL) in the United States. This confirms that its audio performance meets and exceeds recommendations from the CDC, WHO and NIOSH (the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health).
We know that many pregnant moms have sensitive skin. That’s why we decided to make Mbrio from medical-grade silicone (USP Class VI certified), so it’s completely safe. Mbrio does not contain Latex, BPA or Phthalates.
Mbrio can be washed in warm water with soap or detergent.
Mbrio is available in Aqua and White. If you have any recommendations for other colors, please let us know!
