Editor's recommendations: Kids Headphones

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.

Die Buddyphones Standard, Explore und InFlight zeichnen sich durch eine hohe Anpassungsfähigkeit aus, wirken robust sowie pflegeleicht und bieten einen guten Sitz. Ein Manko stellt aus meiner Sicht das kurze Kabel der drei Modelle dar, welches insbesondere beim gemeinsamen Hören über den Audiosplitter wenig Bewegungsfreiheit zulässt. Lobenswert ist hingegen die implementierte Lautstärkebegrenzung der Kinderkopfhörer, welche das Gehör vor Schädigungen durch zu laute Pegel schützt und beim InFlight-Modell dem Alter und der Hörumgebung entsprechend angepasst werden kann. Dabei mangelt es den Buddyphones klanglich an Offenheit und Klarheit, um höheren Ansprüchen gerecht zu werden. Ein akzeptables Mittelmaß wird jedoch geboten.
