These JBL children headphones is definitely at the top of the list. We understand that if you have younger children you may want to go with one of the others or even buy the slightly cheaper Trust Sonin first.

For you toddler or toddler, the ear cups can be a bit large, for example, here you see them on an older child, which is the main target group:

Great wireless bluetooth performance so you never get in the way with cables if it doesn't work out (plus Bluetooth also has its own volume level limiter!) And the sound quality is really good. Everything you are probably looking for in headphones.

The highlights:

  • It is SUPER foldable so that it can easily be carried in a school bag or children's suitcase
  • It is a Bluetooth headset with microphone so you can connect it to any Bluetooth device and slightly older children can also make phone calls or participate in an online lesson
  • Great for school as the battery is the BEST we've seen with 30 hours of playtime!
  • Children's sensitive ears are protected by a volume limitation of max. 85 dB according to the EN 71-1 standard
  • Perfect size and adjustable straps make it suitable for ages 6-14 (although it may not appeal to teenagers who are more likely to choose the tougher Pogs
  • It comes with 4 stickers so your younger children can personalize it, which is especially nice if you give brothers and sisters one each.

The design is geared towards the age of your school-age children and with the handy foldability, these are THE headphones of this year for school:

The soft ear flaps close well and even without music they are good at noise reduction from the outside, very useful also for children with concentration problems.

But what makes this JBL the top choice is the active volume limiter.

Later in this article I will tell you a little more about the advantages of active volume limiting over passive ones for preventing hearing damage.

And of course, you can watch how hard your child turns the volumes. But constantly paying attention is easier said than done.

This JBL has been specially developed with children in mind and we therefore recommend using active headphones like this JBL.

The most important things to promote this to the others:

  1. The best built-in volume limiter
  2. Nice design which also remains nice when they get older
  3. Bluetooth so without wires that they can get into a pinch with themselves or knock things over (such as drinking over your beautiful tablets, or your expensive vase of flowers)

Comfort for every age

The JBL JR310BT is one of the few models that can grow well with different age categories.

A headphone model for children should be adaptable for different ages and head sizes, and you can even put them on your own ears if you want to listen to a quick listen.

It is essential if you want to have headphones that grow with your child, or if they are shared with siblings and quickly switch between each one. college laptops.

So nice and comfortable fit, with great sound, soft ear cups and nice colors, but Bluetooth is still the most important thing for older children to have.

Most kids from 8 years and up don't really want anything more than Bluetooth headphones :)

Music is nicely balanced and even with some ambient noise you can hear everything clearly, even without turning them up at their loudest.

That is super handy when you want to give them to your child for school, for example, when they want to use them to improve their concentration.

What features does the JBL JR310BT have?

  • JBL Safe Sound, safe for children's ears, goes up to 85 dB
  • 10 meter range with Bluetooth 5.0
  • maximum battery life 30 hours (the predecessor JBL300BT only had 12!), after 10 minutes of charging you have enough battery for 1 hour of listening
  • portable and lightweight, wears fine
  • very good price for a premium kids headphones

The disadvantage is that it is not waterproof, so you have to watch out on a rainy day on the street.

Nice for your child to be undisturbed watching his YouTube videos and listen. Without his parents complaining about the volume every time.

Or if he is on the PC, to chat and laugh with classmates, then you do not always have to enjoy it.

Even if your child walks upstairs, his friends can still hear him fine.

The buttons are easy to operate for children. In terms of size, the headphones are suitable for children from 4 years up to and including adults. So it grows with your child, plus even you can borrow it once if it's really necessary :)

Top choice in most age categories and for the price you certainly can't beat it.
