Durable headphones for kids in many colour variations and with limitations in audio volume.
Which headphones to choose for children?
There are numerous advantages to buying a good pair of children's headphones, rather than picking a pair of old and discarded adult headphones from the drawer. The first reason is, of course, size. Children's headphones are obviously made to fit a child's head, and are therefore more comfortable to wear and typically also much more resistant to knocks and being hurled through the air - as they are made for children. A second and much more important thing is that most children's headphones are limited to a maximum volume of 85 dB. This prevents your child from suffering hearing impairment and frees you from having to monitor the volume when they play music on the iPad or phone.
How loud is too loud? 85dB is the maximum noise level recommended by the World Health Organization, WHO, for children. A completely normal mp3 player/phone/tablet will typically be able to deliver a sound level of up to 105 dB, which is about 100 times more intense than 85 dB. The human ear should not be subjected to more than 100 dB for more than 15 minutes per day, as this can be directly harmful to the hearing.
