I am sure while your kid see you wearing a high end headphone, he would also ask for similar looking premium quality headphones for himself or herself.
Gone those days of Cartoonish kids headphones: Designed for Kids required
Yes …. The time has changed now … Kids don’t like headphones that looks like a cartoon ! looks like Plastic !! Low grade !!! They also want to have a Premium Rich looking smart headphones for themselves and yes, they want them to sound great too 🙂
Kids want them to be identified as their status quo symbol, Looking beautiful, stylish, sounding great and still safe for them.
What is important in Kids headphones ? Safety !
Now here is what LilGadgets recommends on their website about Kids headphones …
- Parental monitoring is advised
- Kids shall be advised to take a break every 1-2 hours for 10 min or longer i.e. no prolonged listening using headphones
- Avoid using headphones at Maximum volume
How many dB sound pressure level is suitable for kids headphones ?
If you read across internet, you will find that volume safety level for kids headphones is around 85 dB max.
However it is important to note that not only sound pressure level harms to kids ears but also how much time kid is listening to the music through the headphones at such max volume level matters.
So 85db sound pressure level is safe for eight hours of continuous listening without causing any hearing damage.
But what happens is that since the kids headphones are limited to 85 dB level, while they are outside places like air travel or car travel on busy street, where the ambient is noisy and passive noise isolation is not working to the full extent, 85 dB puts serious limitations over listening and hence LilGadgets Untangled Pro Premium Kids Headphones does not limit volume to 85 db but allows it going beyond that limit till 93db.

What is Passive Noise Reduction & How it helps limiting the Max listening volume?
Headphones are usually have padded, fixed-earcup design which creates an isolation from the ambient which is called as passive noise reduction,
mostly the ambient noise levels can cut down by about 10-13db pressure. 13 dB being called as the best in the industry, which means even in loud situations, kids won’t have to max out the volume, further extending battery life and creating even safer listening.
