When you’re traveling, and your kids want to watch a movie or TV show, you’d do well to have a good set of children’s headphones with you. BuddyPhones fit the bill because they are volume limiting, durable, and comfortable. They also come with fun stickers so your kids can personalize them to their liking. BuddyPhones retail for $24.99.
The World Health Organization recommends limiting sound volume for children at 85 decibels to keep their ears healthy. BuddyPhones has built-in circuitry to limit the volume to 85 decibels so that you don’t have to worry about the kid turning up the volume by mistake. I tried pumping up the volume, and it worked like a charm.
BuddyPhones are also super durable, as you’ll see in the photo below. This ensures that your kids won’t break them anytime soon, even if they sit on them, twist them around, or throw them out of the window. The cord is removable so that even if your kid pulls hard, it will just come unplugged, and it won’t get ripped out.
The cord features BuddyPhones’ BuddyCable system that allows up to four kids to share one device. The male end of the cable has an additional female end that allows another friend to plug their headphones into your headphone jack. This way, you can connect up to four BuddyPhones for argument-free sharing of the device.
The headphones are adjustable on both sides, so you can be sure the headphones will fit your child. Each earcup is covered with a soft, leather-style earpad, which BuddyPhones claims is anti-allergenic.
Overall, I’m impressed with the features that BuddyPhones offer. Also important is that my 2.5-year-old daughter thought they were very comfortable and said she couldn’t wait to use them the next time we traveled. BuddyPhones are available in pink, blue, green, and yellow.
BuddyPhones are priced from $19.99 to $99.99; they are available directly from the manufacturer.
