I am not one of those parents that restrict their children on media. We have empowered our children to make choices, and they have surprisingly reacted with maturity. They never abuse their free access to TV, Wii, or iPad/iPods. In fact, my son with special needs uses his [amazon_link id=”B0047DVWLW” target=”_blank” ]iPad 2[/amazon_link] as an AAC device
One area I do place strict limits on is headphones. NO EARBUDS! I don’t want to damage my children’s hearing.
This fear was installed up on me when I got my first Sony Walkman. This clunky thing was a godsend for my parents on our annual cross country drive to go skiing in Colorado. I was strictly told not turn the volume over the number two, and I strictly obeyed.
Even after purchasing regular earphones for my children to use on airplanes, they do not properly fit their little heads. Kidz Gear has the solution with high quality, volume control.
KidzControl™ Volume Limiting Technology
Integrated into the new Apple headphones is the proprietary KidzControl™ Volume Limiting Technology, delivering an “always-on” safe volume limited listening experience for children of all ages, with maximum volume levels limited to between 80dB and 90dB levels. Ergonomically designed with soft padded child-sized ear-cups, high-quality audio components and value priced at only $29.95, the Kidz Gear Apple Wired Headphones for Kids are the perfect travel accessory for keeping children quiet and happy during long trips away from home.
Microphone Records Audio, Answers Phone, Issues Voice Commands to SIRI
The Kidz Gear Apple Wired Headphones for Kids Inline Microphone can be used to record audio, issue a voice command to iPhone’s SIRI personal assistant and answer phone calls on the iPhone, or talk through an internet phone, such as Skype. The Remote controls volume up and down, as well as lets the user play, pause, skip a track, return to a previous track or even hear the playlist that is currently active.
