If you know a child under the age of 10 chances are they want a pair of Beats headphones. However, I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks that a $200 pair of headphones isn’t the best investment to make for a kid. Chances are they’ll break, get stolen, end up in a corner covered in clothes, or break (I know I said break twice). Whatever the case it’s always a good idea to start off with something that you won’t mind replacing or won’t have to dish out a ton of money for in the first place.
Besides that there’s always the issue of having tiny speakers blasting sound directly into young ears. Studies have shown that listening to music at high levels can definitely cause some damage over time, so you’re probably going to want a pair of headphones that don’t get deafeningly loud. If you can check those two boxes then there’s only one left: design. Do they look cool enough? Will they actually be worn?
There’s a lot that goes into this and you’re probably wondering, “Well, where do I begin? How do I research this?” Luckily, your searching has led you here. We’ve done all the research for you hopefully making your lives a little easier and compiled this list of the best headphones for kids.
