New Etymotic ETY Kids safe headphones for kids

Today’s tech-connected kids live in a high-definition world. They are bombarded by sound from music players, game consoles, tablets and in-vehicle entertainment systems. Studies show that overexposure to loud sounds leads to hearing damage seen later in life. Parents can take steps to help their kids hear for a lifetime with Etymotic’s ETY·Kids™ Safe-Listening Earphones for Apple products. The ETY·Kids3 headset features three-button control and a mic designed for use with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

Sound heard through ETY·Kids earphones will not exceed safe levels, so parents can rest easy. Even at the maximum volume setting on portable players, kids can listen safely for up to four hours per day. ETY·Kids earphones also block out background noise, and provide high-definition sound quality so kids will be able to hear every detail, and won’t complain that the volume is too low.

ETY∙Kids are available in two versions – the ETY·Kids3, a three-button control headset with mic designed to work with Apple products, and the ETY·Kids5 universal earphone that works with any portable device.

The ETY·Kids3 headset will feature AWARENESS! for Etymotic, an app that “listens” to users’ surroundings and mixes any noise louder than normal background sounds directly into the earphones, so kids can hear traffic, announcements or any other important sounds while they are listening. Both products provide clear, high-definition speech and music reproduction and come with kid-friendly eartips to ensure a seal that blocks outside sound.

Pricing and availability – ETY Kids 5 –  £59,  ETY Kids 3  – UK pricing and availability is to be confirmed.

UK First: Blackbox i10 noise cancelling in ear headphones

Here at girlgeekchic towers we are loving the new The Blackbox i10 noise cancelling earphones for iPod or iPhone. They use  ANR (Anti Noise Rejection) that works intelligently by measuring the noise field in the ear, before calculating and reintroducing an ‘anti-noise’ response which then cancels out 92% of background noise. In a UK first, it is powered by the iPod/iPhone so batteries are not required unlike some other models out there can have bulky battery packs.

They have great music reproduction with deep base and clear highs and have ergonomically designed ear buds to provide maximum comfort. They connect easily to Apple’s 30 pin dock connector, come with a leather carrying case and have an integrated volume control and monitoring function.
