Belkin’s new true wireless earbuds are specifically for kids – and they’re cheap

We’re used to seeing plenty of over-ear headphones targeting little listeners here at TechRadar, but true wireless earbuds for children, such as the just-announced SoundForm Nano Wireless Earbuds for Kids from Belkin, are very much a rare breed.

Designed for children aged seven and upwards, the new Bluetooth earbuds feature output limitation to keep volume below 85 decibels (the current US Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s limit for workplace exposure), making sure that they can’t damage their hearing by accident.

While sound quality often tends to be something of an afterthought for headphones designed for youngsters, that doesn’t seem to be the case here, with the Nano’s featuring 6mm dynamic drivers in each earbud.

They also promise a decent 24 hours of battery life in total, with up to 5 hours of non-stop playtime in the buds, plus an additional 19 hours of juice offered from their charging case, while their IPX5 water resistance should ensure they can withstand a water pistol fight.

Younger kids have smaller ear canals that often make in-ear headphones an irritating and uncomfortable experience, but Belkin are addressing that with a selection of included ear tips that go down to a special extra-extra small size.
