It's about children.
It's about hearing for a lifetime.

Today's tech-connected kids live in a high-def world. They experience Blu-ray, surround-sound, life-like computer graphics and 3-D movies. They are bombarded by sound from television, toys, game consoles, music players and in-vehicle entertainment systems.

ETY•Kids safe-listening earphones are engineered for safe sound output while maintaining Etymotic's exceptional sound quality. By controlling earphone sensitivity, it is not necessary to restrict the volume setting on the player.

Sound heard through ETY•Kids earphones will not exceed safe levels, so parents can rest easy. Even at the maximum volume setting on portable players, kids can listen safely for up to four hours per day. And because ETY•Kids earphones block background noise, and provide high-definition sound quality, kids will be able to hear every detail, and won't complain that the volume is too low.

Features

  • For ages 4+ and anyone overly sensitive to loud sound
  • Engineered for safe sound output*
  • High-definition sound experienc
  • ACCU•Fit eartips ensure a good fit in small ear
  • CUSTOM•FIT option

What Can Parents Do?

Parents choose gear for young children. Many parents understand the importance of limiting sound levels and exposure time, but most are unsure how to manage their kids’ listening. While children are young, one thing parents can influence is the kind of earphones kids use with their portable players. Stock earbuds supplied with portable devices can produce damaging levels of sound.

The main reason listeners of all ages turn up the volume is to block out distracting background noise. ETY•Kids earphones seal the ears so volume levels stay safer. With an adequate seal plus the safe sound output of ETY•Kids earphones, parents are assured their kids are listening safely.

Additional Features

  • Engineered for safe sound output
  • Neodymium moving coil driver with ACCU•Chamber Technology
  • Kevlar®-reinforced cable for durability
  • High-gloss finish

Instructions For Use

Selecting an Eartip

The eartip that is most comfortable is the likely choice, but it MUST SEAL well in your ear. If you can easily hear others when the volume is off, you don't have a good seal. Twist it in deeper, or choose another eartip.

When changing eartips make sure the eartip fits securely on the stem of the earphone.

Proper Insertion

Important: Sound quality, full bass response and noise isolation all depend on a good eartip seal in the ear canal. View the Earphone Insertion Video

  • Carefully insert the earphone while pulling up and out on the back of the ear.
  • Twist the earphone up into the ear canal while inserting, until outside noise is blocked out.
  • 3-flange eartip: Moistening eases insertion.
  • Foam eartip: Roll down or compress foam eartip before inserting. Hold the eartip in place for about 5 seconds while the foam expands to create a tight seal in the ear canal.
  • Glider eartip: Simply push into ear canal.

Removal

Remove earphones slowly with a twisting motion to gradually break the seal. Do not pull on the cable to remove the earphones.

Care

  • Do not expose the earphones to extreme temperatures.
  • Avoid dropping and strong impact.
  • Leave eartips on the earphones for shock protection.
  • Do not pull on the cord to remove the earphone from the audio device or the ear.
  • Clean or replace eartips prior to use by others.

Cleaning and Replacing Eartips

Over time eartips may lose their elasticity. For best performance and retention, replace 3-flange eartips every 3-6 months. Replace foam and glider eartips regularly.

To clean the 3-flange eartips:

  1. Remove the eartip from the earphone.
  2. Clean with water and mild soap.
  3. Dry the eartip before placing it back on the earphone.
