Kidz Gear Volume Limiting Headphones

Volume Limiting Headphones

CES regular Jack Peterson talks with Todd and Don on the latest headphones for children from Kidz Gear.

Kidz Gear produces headphones with smaller headbands and ear cups to fit the smaller heads of children. This year they’ve brought to the market new wired headphones that have a built-in volume limiter that prevents children’s hearing becoming damaged through excessive sound levels. The headphones reduce the maximum sound level by about 20% into the 80-95 decibel range.

The new headphones are compatible with the iPad, iPhone and iPod ranges and include an inline remote  and mic control. They’re available from the Apple Store or direct from Kidz Gear for $29.99.

An additional new product in the same vein is a volume limit cable which can be added to already-purchased headphones to make them safer for children. Priced at only $9.99, there’s currently a special price of $5.99 showing on-line.

Interview by Todd Cochrane of Geek News Central and Don Baine, the Gadget Professor for the TechPodcast Network.

Kidz Gear – Headphones for Children

Posted by Andrew at 10:08 AM on February 4, 2011

Andy McCaskey checks out Kidz Gear and their range of headphones for kids. These guys produce child-sized headphones that have all the features of adult ones. Genius – I couldn’t find a decent pair for my 3 year old and ended buying some folding Sennheisers as they had the smallest  headsize. Anyway, this isn’t about Sennheiser…

There’s two models on offer, wired at $19.99 and wireless at $25.99. Both have child-sized but wide head-bands, comfortable but smaller ear cups and a rich sound. In all, a hundred times better than the “free” headphones that often come with audio products. The wired set come with an add-on volume limiter to stop the music being played too loud – the limiter can be used with any 3.5mm headphones.

Jack Peterson, VP Sales, talks as an entrepreneur about developing the products and getting them manufactured. Even if you aren’t interested in this product, it’s worth having a watch from about 4 minutes in.
