Product Description

Today's tech-connected kids listen to MP3 players, videos, portable game devices, DVDs and in-vehicle entertainment systems through earphones, often for hours at a time. ETY-Kids safe-listening earphones are engineered to limit sound output while maintaining Etymotic's well known sound quality. By controlling the earphones, it is not necessary to restrict the volume setting on the player. Sound coming through ETY-Kids earphones will not exceed safe levels. The main reason listeners of all ages turn up the volume is to block out distracting background noise. ETY-Kids earphones seal the ears with ACCU-Fit (TM) eartips so volume levels stay safer. With an adequate seal plus the sound output-limiting of ETY-Kids earphones, parents are assured their kids are listening safely.

High Noise Isolation

Many parents understand the importance of limiting sound levels and exposure time, but most are unsure how to manage their kids' listening time or material.

ETY-Kids delivers 85%+ response accuracy, allowing listeners to enjoy crisp, accurate reproduction of their favorite music. ACCU-Chamber technology acts as a 3-band equalizer to enhance response accuracy and smooth harmful response peaks, which results in clearer, more defined musical detail.

These earphones block outside noise just as well as the other models.

EDIT DECEMBER 2014: After Etymotic repaired the earbuds in August, they lasted four months, and now I am having problems with them again.

They will keep you from listening to your music at a loud volume - not a bad thing for a product like this to do.

These are the most inexpensive Etymotic Research earphones. They come with a variety of ear tips, including the regular adult size, as well as tips for smaller ears. The stock tips are fine, but I suggest the Comply P Series Foam Tips (Black) 3-Pair Pack, Medium for an upgrade to the stock silicone or foam rubber tips. The Comply foam tips fit better and are more comfortable, with excellent noise blocking.

These earphones block outside noise just as well as the other models. You won't hear anything except your music.

The sound quality is very good in my opinion, although I haven't compared them with Etymotic's more expensive models.

All earphones have some cord microphonic noise when the cord rubs against your clothes or body. But compared to other earphones I've tried, this model is not bad at all.

These are advertised as safe for kids because they don't go too loud. I'm not sure about that. To my ears they do go very loud when the volume is turned high on my clock radio/CD player, enough to hurt someone's hearing, at least over a period of time. So I would advise parents to monitor their kids when using these.

We were looking for a earbud or headphone which would block out external noise for our child. The use case would be in the car so he can tune out his brother and while doing home work (maybe with music or noise machine). My biggest worry was that he would not like putting these in his ears. Since this is a gift which has yet to be giving the jury is still out on that. This review is solely being given on my testing them to make sure they work. Edit: having now tried them he loves them (after playing around with the different ear pieces it comes with).

I bought these since I have a pair of Etymotic HF3 which I love. Like the HF3 these are placed into the ear canal, like an ear plug. They are a little tricky to place in the ear and it takes practice but once in properly I have found them to be extremely comfortable. This seams to be a personal issue which others may have strong disagreement with. When music is not playing they work just like an ear plug in that they attenuate outside noise. You will still be able to hear a little bit of what is going on but not much. Once the music starts you will be in your own world and only loudest of noises will break you out of it. These kids ETYs only can be turn up to a moderate-low listening level on a iPod/iPhone. When testing on my iPhone at full volume they played at a normal listening level. In other words they will probably always be used with the volume up all the way up just to get to a reasonable listening level ... so Kid safety A+ ... but music enveloping enjoyment B- because you'll always wish for a little more volume. The frequency response is great for most music (so don't let the quoted 15khz top end dissuade you ... it's really quite good. I'd say as good as the HF3 at the same volume).

These are great sounding, which is what you would expect from Etymotic. They are no fills, look very plain and don't come with a lot of tips. While that sounds negative it is not. ETY spent money where it counts most - the sound.

Very balanced and detailed sound will reward you, way a above their price point (considering they now sell on Amazon for about 50% off MSRP).

They will keep you from listening to your music at a loud volume - not a bad thing for a product like this to do. I found I got just enough volume out of an ipod for my liking. keep in mind that if you crank the volume on your music player - you still can not get these to go above 88dB, If you try to push them louder, they will start to distort badly, but not get louder. also max volume will drain your battery faster than a low volume will

I was surprised how loud 88dB was, in that it was pleasant for rock and I could be happy with the volume in all but noisy situations. Again, this will save your hearing since even in noisy areas you can not turn up the volume too high.

They also do a really good job at blocking sound from outside, almost like good hearing protectors would. They are not noise canceling (that requires fancy electronics) but are noise blocking like ear plugs - and really who cares if the results are basically the same?

If you can stand lower (and safe) volume on your earphones (and you should if you want to keep your hearing intact)these sound as good as most IEM under $100. If you like a nice balanced sound (ie no bloated bass here at all) these are really great for the money and then some. Highly recommended as long as you keep the volume-limited nature of this product in mind.

I have researched for days and weeks to find the perfect headphones that would block out as much external noise as possible. These are the headphones!!!!!!

Not only are they safe for your ears because of the noise reduction, but they block out external noise so well. Without any music on, just having them in your ear is about as effective as putting in foam earplugs! Once you get music going, you can't hear much at all.

I got these for work and studying - I have to do a lot of analysis and I cannot concentrate when I hear people talking or just noise in the background. I bought these, stick them in my ear, play some static white noise on them... and it's hardcore concentration for hours and hours.

One of the best and most value adding purchases ever!
