JVC HA-KD9BT-A Tinyphones Wireless

Handy Bluetooth On-Ears for Kids with Volume Limits

Editor's recommendations: Kids Headphones

For just 30 Euros, the Mackie MC-100 are entry-level headphones with which you can do very little wrong. The neat workmanship and the very comfortable fit on the head make you forget their low price. But this is not quite the case with the sound: It is basically good and not to be criticised for hobby applications, but the weighting towards a very strong bass, rather unobtrusive mid-range and weaker treble, is not ideal for critical applications such as sound work in the studio or post-production or for hi-fi enjoyment. However, as cheap playback headphones (perhaps when large groups have to be supplied), in the multimedia or hobby area, they are completely acceptable. For parents who want to give their kids a low-cost pair of headphones with a built-in “wow” factor in the bass range but a safety margin in terms of the volume of the mid and high frequencies, I would even strongly recommend the MC-100.

Mackie MC-100

JVC’s Tinyphones Wireless headphones are defined by their adaptability, robust construction and easy-care maintenance, not to mention their comfortable fit. The impressive Bluetooth range ensures children wearing them have plenty of freedom of movement, while the handy volume limit ensures little ones are protected from hearing damage. From a sound performance point of view, a more balanced tuning would have been welcome, although these wireless on-ears can be used to enjoy pretty much any music genre. Ultimately, the price/performance ratio of these children’s Bluetooth headphones is extremely good.

The Play and Wave Buddyphones, like their wired siblings, are highly adaptable, appear robust and are easy to clean. They also offer a quality fit. Technically, both children’s headphones score well thanks to the support of Bluetooth 4.2 and a good range and a well-considered 3-button remote for iOS and Android systems. A long battery life can also be expected with both models, with 14 hours of operation for the Play model and over 20 hours for the heavier Wave version, which is also dustproof and waterproof. The Play model, however, offers an overall better quality of sound.
