Don't risk mild hearing loss just because you like to listen to music on a portable device. There are new solutions out there in the marketplace — especially if you have kids!
Check out these headphones for kids
The Wirecutter liked the "excellent sound quality," noise cancellation features and adequately restricted volume options. And get this...battery life nears a whopping 22 hours!
Honorable mentions also went to the Onanoff BuddyPhones Explore and the JLab JBuddies Studio, which were both in the $30 range.
The Onanoff BuddyPhones Explore were praised for their "fun colors and lightweight, comfy fit" that should appeal to those who are 2 to 4. But kids are likely to grow out of them pretty quickly and you can't expect the best passive volume limiting for $33.
The JLab JBuddies Studio, meanwhile, is likely to appeal to older children. For $30, this headset was singled out for its "soft padding, simple design, fabric-wrapped cable, and in-line remote/mic." Again, though, don't expect to get the best volume control at this low price point.
