Accessory vendor Griffin Technology has announced MyPhones, a set of over-the-ear headphones for kids. Designed for children age three to 12, MyPhones are smaller than standard headphones and include a built-in volume limiter that prevents the headphones from producing audio at levels higher than 85 decibels—the recommended maximum volume to avoid hearing damage.
The MyPhones headphones also include heavy-duty cables for durability, as well as a customizable design that allows kids to choose the cover for each earpiece. Three inserts are included, and kids can create their own or download designs created by others. The MyPhones packaging doubles as a rigid carrying case.
The $40 MyPhones will be available in October.
