“Planet Buddies kids headphones are volume limited to 85 decibels which is the level recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).” The child-safe audio limit on the kids’ headphones helps to prevent noise-induced hearing loss. They offer the added feature of customizable inserts for each earpiece with inserts with pictures already printed and “blanks” for kids to customize. Crayons are also included. There is an inline control on the cable that allows you to adjust the volume, control the mic, and control playback options. It also handles phone calls.
These headphones are easy to use and perform well. I have tried other headphones for my kids to use and they have complained about discomfort or at times spikes in volume. They love these headphones and the inline controls for teleschooling and when watching their age-appropriate YouTube videos. They use them daily. The build quality s great and my daughter loves to color/customize inserts for each ear. My kids do not use them for phone calls primarily because of their ages.
The photo below shows my son fully engaged in learning and happily wearing these headphones without complaining about comfort or the ability to hear clearly.
What I like
- The kid-friendly design including the colors and the coloring options
- My kids say that they are comfortable
- The built-in line control for volume, playback functions, and mic for calls and for use with Zoom for teleschooling
- The flexibility that makes it harder for kids to break
What I’d change
- My kids love them so I guess nothing
I think that the Planet Buddies kids headphones are great and work well for my energetic kids who can be tough on their stuff. They communicate with their teachers and classmates, and for listening when using their tablets. Well done!!
