Out of the Box

A pair of Kidz Gear Volume Limiting Headphones for Kids came in the mail today.



The kids eagerly tore into the box, and here's what came out:

Kidz Gear headphones (blue) and volume limit cord (black)
Of course, we all tried it out. (Even I did.) Since the kids weren't presentably dressed, here's a picture of their visiting cousin Zach Besin instead.

Comfort 

The tiny ear pieces felt a little strange on my ears, but they were comfortable and light – and soft!

They didn't press uncomfortably against my head (unlike my large headphones), so I think I'll be borrowing these for my own use once in a while. 

The headband length is adjustable, so it fits all head sizes.

Sound

We took turns listening to some songs from YouTube. The bass is pretty good!

Without the volume limiting cable, the sound can get pretty loud, but with the cable on, the volume is kept just below ear-piercing level. I never have to worry anymore if the kids have the volume on too high.

If you want to turn the volume down even more, it's easy and convenient with the volume-control dial.

Material

The product has so far been sturdy enough to withstand the chaos of my four kids and their cousin. They've been using it for three days now, and it's still in great condition.

A closer look at the headphones revealed very clean edges and snug connections. The plastic is flexible, not brittle. The parts are neatly screwed on to each other and not simply snapped on.

Availability

You will be pleasantly surprised to find that these headphones' suggested retail price is only P1,190.

It's very affordable, compared to the price of regular adult headphones of similar quality. And compared to the cost of good-quality hearing aids – which our kids will need if we don't protect their hearing this early – P1,190 looks like an excellent investment.

Kidz Gear Volume Limiting Headphones are locally available at Astroplus, Astrovision, Beyond the Box, and Digital Hub. Overseas shoppers can get their Kidz Gear Volume Limiting Headphones for Kids from Amazon.com.
