Today's tech-connected youngsters live in a truly vivid high-definition world with Blu-Ray, surround-sound audio, life-like computer graphics and 3-D movies bombarding them with sound from TVs, toys, game consoles, music players and in-vehicle entertainment systems. The Etymotic ETY-Kids EK5 headphones are true 'safe-listening' earphones engineered for safest possible sound output while maintaining the world-famous, exceptionally clear Etymotic quality. By controlling earphone sensitivity, it becomes not necessary to physically restrict the volume setting on the player and all sounds heard through the ETY-Kids earphones will not exceed safe volume levels, so parents can rest easy. Even at the maximum volume setting on portable MP3 or iPod players, kids can listen safely for up to four hours per day as recommended by clinical audiologists. And because the ETY-Kids in-ear earphones block background noise and provide a very high-definition tone, kids will be able to hear every detail and won't complain that the volume is too low.
The Etymotic Ety-Kids packaging is easy to open (you won't need a jackhammer to pry the clamshell box apart!) and includes 3 different proprietary Etymotic eartip types & sizes; remember to try them all for the best personalized fit and sound quality. As a very cool extra, optional custom audiologist in-ear molds for Ety-Kids are available via Etymotic. Any customer purchasing an Etymotic product can register their product at Etymotic.com; after registering, you'll print a voucher from the Etymotic site, then schedule an appointment with an audiologist in the Etymotic network (which can be located through the Etymotic website by entering your zip code). Then take the voucher to the audiologist appointment, the audiologist takes impressions of your inner ears and sends the impressions -- along with the voucher -- to the Ety labs. Customer pays nothing to the audiologist; the lab will contact you for credit card payment ($100usd); the lab then produces the molds and ships them to the customer with the lab compensating the audiologist. BAM! It's a really easy way to get into 'master-level' sound quality performance and great wearing comfort at a very reasonable expense.
