Let's be honest, most headphones are too big for children's heads. That's where our ACM-7002 stereo headphone for kids comes into play. The adjustable headband provides a perfect fit for a small head and the design is durable enough for the rough handling the young life brings. The ACM-7002 is just what any school needs. Each ear cup has a volume knob for individual level changing, which works great for numerous educational applications. The ACM-7002 works with mp3 players, the iPhone, any iPod, and most computers. While the headphone's drivers are of impeccable quality, their sound maxes out at a level that is suitable for children's ears. After all, they're going to be using their ears for a lifetime, so why blow them out now.
Better than expected...
This review is from: Cyber Acoustics Stereo Headphone for Kids ACM-7002
Pros: Just bought these for my two under-5 girls in anticipation of a long plane ride to Europe. They completely cover the ear and the cushioning is nice and soft. Kids seemed to like them too - they didn't want to take them off during my initial test with an iPhone. We have another brand made by BeBop Kids which are OK, but those only rest on the ear rather than cover them. I think the CyberAcoustic "cover the ear" design is better for the plane due to the volume limitations - you need to block the outside noise as much as possible, otherwise your kid might complain they can't hear.
Cons: Not foldable, which would be nice for travel. Separate left and right volume controls (although some people might consider that a pro). No adapter required for some planes (but I have a lot of these leftover from various business trips - you can probably get one from the FA or any Radio Shack).
Other Thoughts: I will try to update in a few months to comment on the durability, but my initial impression is that they should hold up.
