These cans will fit little heads, while keeping their ears safe too

There are times when it’s essential for your own sanity that your child has a pair of headphones. We’re thinking of those long car journeys, when the tablet comes out for yet another run of Frozen and you’re not quite sure you can live through Let It Go warbling out of those tinny speakers for the gazillionth time. Headphones time, kids – let Dad stick the radio on.

But having your little ones clamp a set of adult cans onto their ears isn’t a great idea. For one thing they won’t fit properly, but – more importantly – your adult ‘phones don’t have any kind of volume limiter. All decent kids headphones will come with a function to automatically prevent the volume from reaching a level that could damage their hearing, so you can let them get on with their listening with no worries. Here are some of the best to choose from.

Groov-e Kiddies headphones

These come in a choice of designs – either blue and green or pink and purple – and they’re another set that even older children will be happy to wear. Volume is limited to 85dB and the ear cushioning isn’t just comfortable. It also helps to block out external noise, making louder volumes less necessary anyway.
