ETY-Kids Earphones + Headset
Engineered for Safe Sound Output
A recent study by the World Health Organization found over a billion young people are at risk of noise-induced hearing damage.
Many parents understand the importance of limiting sound levels and exposure time, but are unsure how to manage their kids' listening.

Are your kids protected from hearing damage?
Noise-induced hearing loss is cumulative and irreversible. It is also preventable. Kids today are bombarded by unsafe noise levels in their daily lives from television, toys, gaming consoles, music players, and more.
What can parents do?
While children are young, parents can influence the kind of earphones kids use. The main reason listeners of all ages turn up the volume is to block out distracting background noise. Stock earbuds that come with portable devices can produce damaging levels of sound.
Why ETY-Kids Safe-Listening Earphones?
ETY-Kids earphones seal the ears completely. With an adequate seal plus the safe sound output of ETY-kids earphones, parents know their kids are listening at safe levels. With regular use, replace 3 flange eartips every 3-6 months.
- 4ft reinforced cable for added durability
- Assortment of eartips to fit ears of all sizes
- 3.5mm jack compatible with most devices
- 6 mm neodymium drivers for accurate sound reproduction
- Carrying pouch

Kids today are constantly bombarded by unsafe noise levels in their daily lives. While children are young, parents can influence the kind of earphones kids use. ETY-Kids5 earphones are engineered for safe sound output while maintaining Etymotic’s superior sound quality. Their 6mm neodymium moving coil drivers fit comfortably in small ears while the proprietary acoustic side branch and dampers redistribute energy, smooth out response peaks and compensate for weak highs normally found in moving coil drivers. 35-42dB of noise isolation reduce the impulse to turn up the volume, protecting young ears from noise induced hearing damage. ETY-Kids5 reinforced 4 ft. cable and 3.5mm stereo jack make them durable for everyday use and compatible with most devices. Includes assorted eartips and carrying pouch.

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.
I've owned the more expensive Etymotic model and I can't tell the difference in audio quality. I have a feeling the people who rate the quality bad don't know how to insert them deep enough in the ear canal, or they equate volume to quality. These go plenty loud, I never use full volume. I enjoy faint volume, I have sensitive hearing and they isolate you to such a silence that it works out great.
A few things about this Kids version. First, they added more impedance so even at max volume when connected to a typical smartphone it doesn't get too loud that would damage hearing for short term listening, but is still loud enough to damage for prolonged listening. There is a roll off for the higher frequencies too I believe. High frequencies can damage hearing easily when you have music playing so close to your eardrums. Personally I actually like these features due to having mild tinnitus.
Secondly, these doesn't come with the filters, which are used to prevent dirt and gunk from entering the driver chamber. The regular filters model "ER38-46" fits, so I recommend getting some. Also, they come with limited eartip sizes since it's marketed for kids. You can get larger sized Etymotic eartips that will fit.
I do find that due to the design it makes a very good earphones to fall asleep with. It is right angle design and doesn't protrude so much so you can lay on the side a little easier. Some earphones are so sensitive even at the lowest volume setting it is too loud to fall asleep to. Since the max loudness is limited for these, you get a finer control of the volume.
look no further, this is it.
Pro: If you are planning to baby it and looking for earphone with low volume capability, decent sound, great isolation at reasonable price
Volume control (volume can go much lower than typical earphone, which help with hearing protection)
Isolation (it's practically an earplug)
Comfort (if it fits you)
Durability (last me 2 month)
Great discomfort (if it doesn't fit you)
Lack of bass
I needed an earphone that actually produce low volume when my phone's volume was at 1 bar.
Other earphone was louder than I wanted even at 1 bar and hurt my ears. I also didn't want to hassle with fine tuning with EQ control
I wanted a simple solution. This did the job.
I could barely hear things when volume was at 1 bar, which was what i exactly wanted.
Sounds clear but lacks bass. So, Not for someone who wants exciting sound.
This earphone is high impedance which demands more power to go louder.
Positive is minimized distortion. If your device is producing hiss and buzz, this earphone might get rid of that.
Negative is that it might not go as loud as you want.
Real negative of this earphone is it's durability.
Regular usage of 2 month broke this earphone.
Unless you are planning to baby this earphone, do think twice.
If you are planning to baby it and looking for earphone with low volume capability, decent sound, great isolation at reasonable price,
look no further, this is it.
