Bendy foam headphones made for kids

While many of us sometimes listen to tunes through our headphones, standard models are too small and hard for tots — not to mention to fragile. HeadFoams are made to be child-friendly and child-proof.

“As parents, we’ve bought countless pairs of headphones for our kids,” say the developers at Marblue. “In their enthusiasm, kids will accidentally twist, pull, drop, and fight over headphones. The consequence? Broken headphones that need to be replaced. This gets expensive!! Our solution to these and other headphone problems we have had along the way are our patent-pending HeadFoams.”

The cans can be bent, twisted, even involved in a tug-of-war — and “this means buying one nearly indestructible pair is more cost-effective than the many less expensive ones we have bought over time.”

The ’phones also limit volume to 85 decibels. “This limits the sound level to what experts and doctors consider safe. We know young kids are not happy about this limit, but we feel really great about it because as parents and school owners, we want to protect those developing ears from harm.”

Normally $40, they’re $25 here.
