Etymotic Research ETY-Kids5 Safe-Listening Earphones : Sound quality is alright for the price, but the isolation makes it worth while.

They are not that durable though, i have been through 3 pairs in the last 2 years.

These iem’s are based on the fabulous etymotic line and have a very good sound quality. They use a resistor to make sure the soundvolume can’t be turned up too loud as to prevent ears from being damaged. They also insulate very good. Now the idea is good, the execution, in my opinion, lacked some though. The problem that i’m having is that, since they insulate very well, they don’t require a loud volume. And with a lower volume the bass is totally lost. There is no bass whatsever; only high and a little of the midrange remains. You’d have to turn up the volume to max (>90%) to experience the lower end of the sound spectrum. And at 100% the volume is too loud for my taste. To use the headphonelist scoring:accessoires: 4isolation: 4.

Good fit for small ears (adults/children). Do watch the how to use video for perfect sound.

These earphones have excellent noise cancellation properties if you use them with the right soft tips, they come with a selection that fit a younger child to an adult with big ears. The bass sound is not so strong, but that is part of them protecting your ears and making sure you are not damaging them even when listening through them for hours i have used various pairs for past 9 years and my family is equipped with them as well.

I brought these as a second cheap pair for the gym, they have great isolation with decent sound. Note that they seriously limit the volume played which obviously has some impact on the quality of the sound, but for £20 they are still better than 95% of the other headphones in that price range.
