headphones for childrenThe popularity of kids’ headphones has soared in recent years! Children use headphones for many of the same activities as adults, including for learning. Some learn through practice, some learn by looking at pictures, and others learn by listening. This is especially true since the pandemic began: young listeners need good headphones for remote schooling, video chats with relatives, and for enjoying music and Netflix shows. In this contest, Best Buy is giving away KIDdesigns over-ear noise cancelling kids headphones and Belkin SoundForm Mini on-ear Bluetooth kids headphones.

Headphones help kids focus and pay attention

With their curious minds and endless energy, kids can easily get distracted by the environment they’re learning in. Headphones help block out the external noise and make kids focus only on the sounds coming out of the headphones. My six-year-old niece uses headphones during reading time in the class. It helps her listen to an audio book (with accompanying images or video) that her teacher prepared. Thus, helping her focus on the story as it’s being told.

Headphones, therefore, also improve the absorption of learning material—enhancing the focus of a child to help them remember that material. Later during tests, a pair of good kids’ headphones can once again help the child to recall the information they need to perform well by reducing external distracting noises.

Bring out their inner superstar with character graphics headphones 

Most kids’ headphones are designed to be small, lightweight, and feature an onboard volume limiter to prevent young listeners from damaging their hearing. The headphones we are offering in this contest all have those features. Their control system is simple and easy to use, with essential controls like play/pause and volume control. The volume limiting feature allows you to adjust the volume for safe levels of listening and works with any audio device. Adjustable headbands and padded ear cushions allow your kids to listen in comfort. Lastly, one very important feature of kids’ headphones is that they are budget friendly: after all, a child might be taking them to school or daycare or to a friend’s house and invariably they may get misplaced, dropped, or damaged in transit.

We sent the Belkin and KIDdesigns headphones to our blogger, Shelly, to test and share honest feedback. Check out her review article to learn more about these headphones.

The KIDdesigns over-year noise cancelling headphones that we’re giving away in this contest come in several bright and fun colour schemes and feature favourite characters to appeal to children.

  1. These look pretty cool. Definitely like the volume control limiting, which can be important for some kids.

  2. I believe the volume limiting feature is the most important as it allows for safe levels of listening and works with any audio device.

  4. I think tat the volume limiting and noise cancelling features are important safety features which protect the children from potential hearing loss.

  5. The most important feature is the volume limiter which definitely helps to protect young listener’s hearing. This would be great for our grandchildren.

  7. The most important feature is the volume limiter, which definitely helps to protect young listener’s hearing.

  8. The Volume Cap on the Belkin is super important so that sound levels cant exceed suggested standards!

  9. I love the volume limiting feature so I know my child wont be damaging their ear drums while they listen to things.

  10. I think that the volume limiter is a great option for kids. i know my granddaughter has a tendency to have her volume way too loud so this is a really great feature that would work for us!

  11. The volume limiting is super important. Overear is best to avoid issues with in-ear pods or the like, but having that limiter is going to save a lot of frustration that some of us know all too well because of how we used to listen to music in our youth.

  12. Noise cancelling feature is very useful to prevent distraction and allow kids to focus during the online learning.

  13. The most important feature on kids headphones (at least for me) is the limit to the volume. Using headphones needs to be safe for kids’ hearing!

  14. Max volume limit is the most important. Kids will listen on too high a volume on normal headphones. Thanks!

  15. The top feature is volume limiting. It allows you to adjust the volume for safe levels of listening to help prevent ear damage in the little ones.

  16. The volume cap feature is the most important, because keeps kids’ ears safe from any damage due to excessive Db levels.

  17. Featuring Bluetooth connectivity is important to enable dancing to music, physical exercise and learning. The KidDesigns make they best friends and buddies. Ensuring that they will be used.

  18. block out the external noise and make kids focus only on the sounds coming out of the headphones…..to me this is very important as my granddaughter gets easily distracted with the littlest thing so i think these headphones would make a world of difference
