Finding headphones that fit just right for smaller heads can be a difficult task -- that is, until now. HeadRoom has searched far and wide for good-sounding and durable headphones perfectly suited for children and little heads and we've come up big finding the excellent Kidz Gear headphones. These well-built little cans offer ideal ergonomic dimensions for smaller people plus a very durable construction build ready to take some roughhousing in the back of the mini-van. The Kidz Gear sound is extra clean and crisp so your budding music lover won't be forced to turn up the volume to hear clearly, a critical thing for your child's long-term hearing safety. The provided 'volume limiter' cable adapter found with Kidz Gear prevents any excessive volume over 90dB regardless of the player source actual volume. Perfect for connecting to any portable player, DVD or gamer console, the Kidz Gear deliver a focused tone that's neither overly bright and/or strident nor too bassy or muddy. We even had some of the really big kids here at the HeadRoom office wear the Kidz Gear headphones for hours at a time to ensure their toughness and good acoustic perfomance with highly positive results from our kid-at-heart testing crew. We think your own little big kid will love these nifty 'on-ear' headphones as much as we did.
The Kidz Gear headphones are a sealed-back earcup construction and the on-ear design securely fits on the earlobes for most wearers. Adjustable headband easily expands to accomodate even adult head sizes without being too loose on the smallest of noggins. Great ergonomic design and' no-break' headband construction rates tops in the 'Children Headphones' category.

Recommend Product: No
Pros: Good sound compared to other similar options
Cons: Y-cord, Poor Fit (for us at least)
The tangle was always a mess and then the inevitable happened after about 3 months of use: something snagged somewhere and the cable was partially pulled out, disconnecting sound from one of the ears. I tried to take it apart to see if I could possibly re-solder, but with componentry (wire diameter) this small, it is nearly impossible.
The sound was actually quite decent IF you could get a good seal. HOWEVER, they don't have any "front back" swivel (only "up down") so if your ears aren't perfectly flat against your head, then there will be a good gap at the front of the phones. The headroom dummy has such flat ears, but I think most of us "real folks" don't. In short, the fit was not very good at all. Then, with a bad fit you get a lot of outside noise and you need to up the volume. So, overall, the design has issues, in my opinion.
We are wanting something that will give isolation (meaning it needs to have a better fit regardless of the specs) and not necessarily across the board attenuation, but max volume limiting. Maybe the db Logic hp-100? Maybe just go for the Sennheiser hd-201 (no limiting but good fit and without an amp will be attenuated)? Both have the y-cord. Y-cords will be issues for younger kids across the board, I fear. Hmm. Koss UR 29? Hmmm again.
