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.

  3. I really like that these kids’ headphones are budget friendly, since everything cost more now when you’re shopping for groceries, gas & clothing

  4. My kids love headphones, but always seem to get distracted (annoyed) by other noises around them, like mom and dad trying to talk. The ability to block out the external noise, which these kid’s headphones have, would be a lifesaver.

  5. Designed to be small, lightweight, and feature an onboard volume limiter to prevent young listeners from damaging their hearing.

  6. Volume limiting would be very important to protect their ears as we know once you lose hearing it is not replaceable

  7. It’s important that the headphones help block out the external noise since little ones can be easily distracted with siblings or animals

  8. Adjustable headbands and padded ear cushions allow your kids to listen in comfort is important since every child has a different size of head, and with long hours with online learning, it’s important that they are comfortable.

  9. Volume limiting is the most important of the features !! My nephews get enough “loud” at the hockey rink, & when practicing in the garage !!

  10. for sure the volume limiting feature is important the kids seem to love to crank the music up too loud for their young ears
