Hear, hear: Child-safe earbuds sound good to kids, parents

Going back to school still means stocking up on pencils, highlighters, and composition notebooks, but nowadays, it can also mean students need to fill their backpacks with a flash drive and child-safe headphones — especially if their classroom is using the popular Google Chromebooks.

LilGadgets’ new BestBuds Earbuds are made to meet the unique needs of children ages 6 and older. They’re particularly suited for kids, because their volume is capped by a 93-decibel limit to protect young ears, and they’re made to reduce outside noise levels, so kids won’t have to max out the volume to enjoy their apps, phones, or videos.

The BestBuds, which are in-ear headphones, also have a microphone for phone calls or communicating with apps. The earphones also come with a firm storage case which contains the additional Earbud covers and Y-shaped “SharePort” adapter, so your child can share his screen-finds with family and school friends.
