Kidz Gear Targets Summer Vacation with Headphones

Whether you go wired or wireless, with or without a boom microphone, Kidz Gear of El Dorado Hills, CA says its headphones can make summer vacations more enjoyable for kids—and parents.

The company is highlighting three models, available in kid-friendly colors and discounted with free shipping and a carry bag thrown in to sweeten the pot. Two of the models are equipped with a volume limiting function that sets maximum volume at about 80 percent of full output to prevent hearing damage.

The MH68KGXX headset (left) is volume limited and has a flexible, lightweight microphone attached, making it suitable for gaming, Skype calling, and educational use such as learning a language. Available in gray, pink, or blue. Price: $20 (originally $30).

The BT68KGXX Bluetooth stereo headphones (middle) feature auto-syncing for easy connection and include a removable boom microphone for making and receiving calls from a connected smartphone plus an audio cable for making wired connections. Battery life is rated for 10 hours on a full charge. Available in blue and pink. Price: $30 (originally $60).

The standard CH68KGXX wired headphone (right) is volume limited and available in seven colors—white, pink, orange, blue, green, purple, and gray. Price: $20.
