There is a constant supply of headphones hitting the market these days that boast new sleek designs and high-spec audio capabilities. However, the majority of these mainstream headphones aren't usually suitable for kids. This is because most headphones don't have built-in volume level protection to safeguard against excessive noise that can damage hearing in the long-term.
If you're buying a gadget for a child such as an MP3 Player, PMP, or other portable that comes with standard earbuds/headphones (or has the facility to plug some in), then you may want to invest in a pair of headphones specially designed for kids. Not only will they generally be more comfortable to wear, but will also usually have a built-in volume limiter.
