Kidz Gear Wired Headphones For Kids

So the other day, one of my readers asked me the recommend some good not to expensive headphones for her 4-year-old daughter.  I recommended her to check out some of the headphones from Kidz Gear.  Now I don’t own any of those headphones, but I did some research.  Check their website and various reviews available.  I also know what’s important and – more important – what’s not important in a headphone for little kids.

I mean you don’t need to get your 4-year-old a $500 audiophile headphone.  People tend to go a little crazy in those things and actually thinking more of what they themselves would want, instead of thinking about what their kid would love.   I got an almost 4-year-old son and when I’m seeing him dragging and throwing his stuff around, I’m glad that’s not my Sennheiser HD 650 being thrown somewhere in the corner…

So what is important, you ask.  Okay, look at this:

Flashy Colors

Kids love all things that have flashy colors.  Its’s just the way it is.  So when a headphone comes in practically all the colors of the rainbow, that’s a big thing!

Lightweight

Don’t put a 500 grams weighing headphone on your kid his or her head.  You don’t wanna injure them okay.  Oh and when they throw that brick around.  Be sure to duck, and pray it’s not in a collision course with your brand new top of the line smart-tv…

Durability

When the kids go to their grandparents, chances are they’re playing with some of your toys.  Yes, YOUR toys…  Stuff that’s 20-30 years old and still in good shape.  And you know you’ve not been kind to those…  That stuff was practically unbreakable.  Kids toys need to be durable.  End of story!

Cheap

Pretty straightforward.  A kid doesn’t care if their toys cost $15 or $150…  But listen.  Cheap cannot mean fragile!  Remember the previous point.  This is where the Kidz Gear headphones seem to excel.

Not Too Loud

You need to protect those little ears!  More and more young people are having some kind of hearing issue, because of too much exposure to loud music.  So a headphone for kids needs to have a volume limiter!

Okay, let’s look a bit closer to these headphones.  They are made from a durable and bendable plastic.  This makes them very light and not easily breakable.

They are made to fit kids from 2 years and older, but I’ve heard they also fit adults.  So I wouldn’t worry that your kid will grow out of these.  The double headband is a nice detail.  These distribute pressure much better than a single headband.  Also, the headphone is easily adjusted with a click system.

The ear paddings are made out of silicone and seem to give a nice comfortable fit.  Not sure if they’re replaceable though…

The included KidzControl Volume Limit cable is just a volume limit cable with a 3.5mm plug.  These limit the volume to around 80% of the maximum volume.  Because of the 3.5mm plug, they fit in practically any portable device: iPod, iPad, android, portable or built-in DVD or Blu-ray players, …

They come in six different colors, so your kid is gonna love at least one of them.

Sound

Since these are for kids I don’t expect the sound to bring tears of joy to audio enthusiasts, but people seem to like the sound a lot.  I’ve not come across any review where someone told the sound quality was bad.  So I think we’re okay here. 🙂

Conclusion

At a price of $19.99 you just can not go wrong with these headphones.  You get a nice durable headphone that’s gonna last them for a very long time and has a decent sound.

I’ll probably pick one up for my son’s birthday next month. 🙂

  1. Well, these would be awesome for my 3 year old nephew but I’m not sure they will work for his PS4 needs. My 10 year old needs a headphone that he can talk into as well since he will be using it for gaming. Also, wireless is preferred. Do you have any suggestions under $40?

    1. Hi Donna,

      I checked around a bit and I could not really find a decent wireless headset for the PS4 under $40. If you really want wireless then the PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset is about the best you can get for a limited budget. So you might want to check that out.

      On the other hand, if you would reconsider wired headphones, then the Kidz Gear Deluxe Headset Headphones with Boom Mic would be a good recommendation. It’s the same headphone as in the review, but with a mic attached to it. Great for online gaming.

      Cheers!

  2. This page has really got some good information about the headphones that are made specifically for kids. I was thinking of what to present for my friends daughter birthday and now i decided to buy this kids headphone as she is very much interested in music. She is definitely going to love. Thanks for this review, it really helped to choose one nice product.

  3. Not a bad idea for kids. Young ones do like to turn up the volume! So it’s nice that this product is thinking about the safety of young people’s developing ears. Great that the headphones are light weight and durable at the same time. I see clicking through to Amazon that the price is now 29.99 – still an ok price for a quality product. Thanks for the review.

    1. You’re welcome Rob! I checked the price at Amazon and they are still going for $19.99 at the moment. Although the Kidz Gear Deluxe Headset Headphones with Boom Mic is going for $29.99

  4. Nice one Jurgen. Yout logo looks great!

    Volume control is really an essential feature for kids headphones as they might harm their ears unintentionally.

    Your article about cleaning headphone jack is very helpful. This is one thing most people often forgot which can eventually affect the quality of sound from the headphone.

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. What a great idea to have a volume limit on headphones for kids 🙂 These do seem to be a great buy for any parent, the price is really reasonable and you’re right when you say that kids love bright colours. They also love to have what is their ‘own’ rather than having to borrow off Mum and Dad. Really good review, well done 🙂

  6. Hi Jurgen, great review. It is hard to find something not so expensive but also a quality product for kids. Great product, great price. I really like Volume limit technology feature. It is very important for kids. Very helpful product for parents which are stuck with kids video games 🙂

  7. Hey these look pretty awesome. I have three kids, all trying to do something with video games, youtube, or the radio all at the same time. The limiter on the amount of volume allowed to their tiny ears sounds great. I’d need three pair for them, 60 dollars doesn’t seem too bad to keep all three of them into their respective entertainment when they’re going and give me a piece of sanity at the same time. Thanks for the review 🙂

  8. Hi Jurgen – really good informative post about kids headphones.
    I really like the way you have covered the reasons for buying this product. Pointing out why you should and why you shouldn’t buy them.
    Parents are funny they want to spend mega bucks on Little Johnny, but as you say whats the point. They won’t look after them, just a nice cheap, good quality robust item is all that’s required.
    Thanks for sharing

  9. These look like they are exactly what I am looking for. I was really worried about the overall levels of using headphones for kids ( we all know what kids are like – everything on the highest setting! ).
    It’s great to see that these have a sort of ‘cap’ in place to stop high noise levels.
    Thanks for this review – cleared up one problem for me 🙂
