Best Headphones for Kids - Safe, Cute, Cool
Are you looking for the best headphones for kids? We don't need to hear their gadgets all the time! You need to protect little ears and find a comfortable design they love.
Gadgets for kids are becoming more and more popular. There are tablets for kids, kids love to read interactive books and use apps on phone and tablets. And then there are games consoles, portable DVD players, netbooks and PCs. The Kindle Fire for kids was a very popular Christmas gift.
I'm Mom to two boys. And we love our gadgets. We often use gadgets together with our boys and are happy to listen to what they are doing. But then there are times when we'd rather have some peace and quiet or be listening to something else.
Also, their dad does not like to be distracted in the car, so headphones are a must when we're traveling. And any time you are in a public space like a doctor or dentist's waiting room, kids can only use sound on their gadgets with headphones.
But, I'm concerned about my kids using headphones, what if they turn the sound up too loud? I want to make sure their headphones are safe.

These are proper headphones, just child-sized, and with extra volume limiting controls to protect little ears.
The Kidz Gear Wired headphones have a clever design which works for toddlers (from age 2), through preschoolers and little kids up to tweens. (Some adults report being able to wear them.)

Kidz Gear Wireless Headphones
Kidz Gear also make a wireless version of their headphones for use with a car audio system.
These headphones automaticall turn off when not in use to save batteries. They use 2 x AAA batteries.
These wireless headphones don't get such consistently good reviews as the wired ones. Wireless technology is more temperamental! But many people have had good success with them.
There's also a home adapter available separately so you can use the wireless headphones at home with a variety of devices.
Califone Animal Headphones
These Califone Animal headphones are very cute. We like the tiger design, but they also come in panda and bear designs.
These headphones get good reviews. Though sound quality and comfort may not be quite as good as the Kidz Gear headphones, these do offer a cheaper, and very cute, alternative.
