We review three of the best child headphones currently available—from Kidz Gear, Sony and Ultimate Ears. They are specifically designed with kids in mind.

Kids Headphones—What to look for

With portable music players, portable DVD players, and more, more and more kids are using headphones. And, in a world where most headphones are made to for adults, some parents have trouble finding the right kids headphones.

Most headphones on the market are made for adults. So, they will most likely not fit the head of a child. If they don't fit on your child's head, they can easily slip off, break, and get tangled up.

Another problem is that the volume for most headphones aren't suitable for children. High volume levels can be dangerous for anyone. And, a child, whose ear are still developing, experiencing those types of dangerous volumes can have a negative impact on their hearing in the future.

But, there are some brand of child headphones out there that should suit your child perfectly when they want to listen to their favorite music on their music players or watch movies on portable DVD players.

Kids' ears are different from adults, they're not fully developed. So, the headphones that children use shouldn't be the same as adults, as their under-developed ears can be damaged.

Kids headphones should fit them perfectly and should have lower volume limits so you can keep the volume safe for them.
