From the Manufacturer
Today's tech-connected kids live in a high-def world. They experience Blu-ray, surround-sound audio, life-like computer graphics, and 3-D movies. They are bombarded by sound from television, toys, game consoles, music players, and in-vehicle entertainment systems.
The ETY-Kids5 Safe-Listening Earphones are engineered for safe sound output while maintaining Etymotic's superior sound quality. By controlling earphone sensitivity, it is not necessary to restrict the volume setting on the player. Sound heard through ETY-Kids earphones will not exceed safe levels when used with today's popular portable players, so parents can rest easy.
Are Your Kids Protected from Hearing Loss?
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.
With ETY-Kids earphones, parents who want to limit their family's exposure to damaging sound, but are unsure how much is too much, can be assured that they are doing their best to protect the family's hearing health. ETY-Kids earphones are designed for kids 4+ and are also appropriate for anyone with heightened sensitivity to loud sound.
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.
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.
High Definition Sound Quality
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.
Upgrade to a CUSTOM-FIT
Custom molds can be made for all Etymotic earphones and headsets. CUSTOM-FIT molds enhance your listening experience. They provide a comfortable, secure fit and do not alter the exceptional sound quality of the earphones. Register your Etymotic earphone at etymotic.com/customfit to print out a CUSTOM-FIT voucher you can take to an audiologist, who can take ear impressions for molds that will work with your Etymotic product.

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 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).Read more ›
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!
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.
