In 2007, Daniel Gibney, dad and drummer, needed a product that would protect his daughter’s ears while he practiced drums at home or played at gigs. On the hunt for a product to help, Dan realised the market had room for an earmuff designed specifically for kids. Consequently, over the next 12 months, Dan patented the first folding, kids earmuff design and launched it to the market with the ‘Ems for Kids’ name, in honour of his first daughter ‘Emily’ or ‘Em’.
Two years later in 2009, Daniel designed and patented the original baby earmuff with a unique pressure-reducing headband design safe for newborns.
In 2017, the Ems for Kids range expanded to include audio headphones.
