ETY•Kids3 Headset + earphones with Apple® 3-button control
The rule in our house, in traveling, is “one ear to the family!” My husband tells the kids if they are going to listen to their music and tech devices, it’s that way or no way! The kids then are always part of what we are doing, and still listening to what they want! How often are you reminding your kids to turn the music down? I know my kids are always with headphones in, but when I can hear what they are hearing I am sure there is a problem. I worry that they are hurting their eardrums and ruining their hearing and I must be on to something. Etymotic has created earphones for kids that offer safe sound output and at the same time do not hamper the sound quality. The outside noises are what are muted and when there is not extraneous outside noise, it does not create the need to turn the music up!
While the earphones are for kids, any one 4+ can use these, especially if you are oversensitive to sound.
My youngest son swiped the earphones as soon as he saw the word KIDS on the box. He assumed it was for him. In reality they were for him. He loves them and he loves the little pouch because he carries them everywhere, neat and tidy and it makes him responsible to put something back into the case rather than letting it out of the case and becoming lost!
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ETY KIDS 3
The control on this is really a great plus, as it offers, Volume Up, Play/Pause, Next Track, Previous Track, Volume Down, and Close. The 4 conductor plug is gold plated and 3.5 mm. The shirt clip means that the wire does not have to dangle all over the kids, it can be secured and the zipper pouch offers a way to keep track of the earphones. I have made my son place the earphones back in the back at the end of each use, to teach him respect of possessions as well as responsibility! These are parent tested and parent approved as a perfect way to listen safely to the tech devices the kids have!
The ETY Kids 3 Safe -Listening Headset & Earphones for kids is made for the following: iPod Touch(2nd,3rd, 4th generation), iPod Classic, iPod Nano,(4th,5th, and 6th generation), iPod shuffle(3rd and 4th generation), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 2, iPad.
You may want to know about the APP called AWARENESS! This is an app that is available with the EtyKids3 that allows parents to allow in the amount of ambient sound a parent wants. It will activate at certain levels so there are “two ears on the family.”
WHAT I APPRECIATE THE MOST
What makes the ETY Kids 3 a great purchase is the fact that the headset/earphones actually isolate the exterior noises which usually impeded with earphone/headset listening. Since the earphones effectively mute out background noise there is no real need to CRANK the music being played because it is not competing with exterior noise. The fact that the head set offers superior sound quality is a great other item that I should mention, clean, crisp and clear! Sound that is heard through the ETY•Kids earphones does not exceed safe levels, even at the maximum volume settings on portable tech devices kids can enjoy safely for up to 4 hours a day!
