About Kids Headphones
Give your child the gift of music with the OnBuy range of kids headphones! Many of the top headphone brands like JVC, JBL and Philips make children’s headphones, and our verified sellers present some of the very best for you to browse here. Headphones for kids mix cool and vibrant colour palettes, small headbands and comfortable ear cushions suitable for young ears and integrated volume limiters to protect your child’s hearing.
What are volume limiters?
It’s well known that blasting music at high volumes from a pair of headphones over a long period can damage your hearing over time. Because your child’s ears are still developing they are particularly vulnerable to damage from loud music. That’s why all kids headphones come with a volume limiter as a standard feature.
The purpose of the volume limiters found in headphones for kids is right there in the name: they limit volume! The volume limiting is achieved through the use of electrical resistors. Like all headphones, childrens headphones use a set of diaphragms that vibrate at specific frequencies to turn electrical signals into music. The diaphragms are powered by electricity, and the higher the electrical power that runs through them, the more the diagrams vibrate. The electrical resistors in kids headphones prevent the diagrams from getting dangerously loud. Unlike software-based volume limiters, the volume limiters found in childrens headphones can’t be overridden, so there’s no way your child can raise the volume beyond the limit.
Designs of kids headphones
The appeal of childrens headphones isn’t limited to the volume limiter! While many headphones for adults are available only in black or white, headphones for kids can come in all sorts of exciting colours! You can pick up two-tone kids headphones in contrasting red and blue or pink and white here, and many have little plastic decorations that run along the top of the headband. Cats’ ears, flames, alien antennae and a princess’ tiara are just a few examples of the weird and wonderful childrens headphones designs you can find in this category! What’s more, our retailers stock all manner of licensed headphones for kids too! If your child loves Disney, Harry Potter and other child-focused brands, you’re sure to find kids headphones bearing their favourite characters!
