Product Description

Parents choose gear for young children. Many parents understand the importance of limiting sound levels and exposure time, but most are unsure how to manage their kids’ listening. While children are young, one thing parents can influence is the kind of earphones kids use with their portable players. Stock earbuds supplied with portable devices can produce damaging levels of sound. The main reason listeners of all ages turn up the volume is to block out distracting background noise. ETY•Kids earphones seal the ears so volume levels stay safer. With an adequate seal plus the safe sound output of ETY•Kids earphones, parents are assured their kids are listening safely. The ETY•Kids3 model includes 3-button Apple control.

Hearing loss is a real public health concern. And with the exploding popularity of digital music players and personal gaming systems used by children and young adults, the problem is anticipated to become worse.

ETY-Kids earphones are designed for kids 4+ and are also appropriate for anyone with heightened sensitivity to loud sound.

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).

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!

I should mention that I'm not an audiophile, and I use these primarily for listening to podcasts, so I can't give you a detailed review on the audio quality. To my untrained ears, they sound very good, though. I tried the various supplied tips, and found a grownup-sized one that was extremely comfortable and gave me excellent sound isolation.

Also, using the enclosed child-sized tips, I've given this to my daughter to listen to while we're on an airplane. I like the fact that it blocks out the noise of the airplane while preventing the audio level from getting too loud for her.

I got the model with the inline remote control, and it has worked very well with various models of iPhones and iPads.

So why only three stars? Because I bought the headset in October, and by February, it was only working intermittently. I returned it to Etymotic, and (to their credit) they repaired it under the warranty and sent it back promptly. But now, four months later, I'm having exactly the same problem. It's still under warranty, so I'll return it again, and I'm sure they'll repair it... but it's annoying to have to keep doing this. And when the warranty runs out in a few months, and the headset breaks again (as I now expect it will), I will have to throw it away.

EDIT AS OF AUGUST 2014:

I sent in the broken pair and, to their credit, Etymotic sent me a brand new one within the week. I was very impressed with the speedy customer service.. until, 24 hours after I got the new pair, it broke again. So, I'm sending it back to be repaired under warranty for the third time in 10 months. This is getting a little ridiculous. I'm downgrading my review to 2 stars.
