While packing for our trip, we researched the crap out of pretty much everything. If it was going, it had to be small, light, and perform well.
There are some things that we ended up making compromises on one end of the spectrum or another, but one genre we didn’t want to take any cuts were kids’ headphones. Those little ears are worth protecting at all costs.
It is actually extremely hard to find a small pair of kids’ safe listening earphones! I can’t tell you how many stores we scoured and sites we searched, trying to find some. They’re almost ALL even more clunky than a full-size pair of adult headphones!
Then hubby found ETY•Kids.
We thought they were too good to be true. But the kids LOVE them… and so do we.
They pack into that little tiny pouch in the photo, and come with different sizes of ear tips to make sure your kiddo can get just the right fit. It should be noted that these are not for really little kids due to ear size, but for anywhere around ages 4 and up, they work great!
We also absolutely love that the volume is limited while external sound is blocked out, so our kids’ hearing is protected, but they can still hear everything they’re listening to without difficulty. THAT’S safe listening! I’m honestly not sure why more kids headphones are like this! The normal over-the-head ones we had before were constantly causing frustration, because they only limited the volume–not compensated for this limiting in any way–and let’s face it, our house is typically NOT quiet!
It has been absolutely thrilling to see how well the ETY•Kids have performed for our kids throughout our travels so far, and how easy they tuck into a pocket to take pretty much anywhere.
If you’re as excited about this product as we are, you can purchase your own ETY•Kids earphones here! Happy listening!
