Kids love their screens just as much as adults. And giving them headphones is a simple way to keep their music, games, audiobooks, or other noises a little quieter. Puro claims their Sound Labs BT2200s claims offer a studio-quality headphone option for kids that can stand up to a bit of rough treatment while also providing volume limiting to help save their hearing. But are they worth using -- or the price?
The headphones offer a nice blend of vibrant kid-friendly accent colors and a less flashy standard design. Reviewers noted the materials were excellent for the price, and the choice of color options should help you keep picky kids happy -- or tell headphones apart at a glance if you have multiple children.
They’re available with both on-ear and around-ear pads depending on the fit desired. Reviews note that they are surprisingly durable for a set of kids’ headphones.
Reviewers stated that the headband on these earphones is very comfortable and one of the more padded versions they’ve used. The earpads passively mute outside sound for a bit of noise cancellation but still allow enough outside noise through to help kids stay aware of their environment if walking, biking, or moving around.
The Puro Sound Labs BT2200s have a surprising amount of bass. Reviewers were surprised as volume-limited headphones often don’t have incredible sound quality. In this case, it would be considered good enough for the kids without jumping into the price of more high-end options like Beats.
These headphones have the option to be wireless or wired, depending on your preferences. Reviewers saw no operational issues with wireless mode during their testing. The mic was not so good over Bluetooth and sounded fuzzy and far away. But, overall, the connection was solid, and the headphones were quick to pair.
Puro claims you can expect around 18 hours of use on one charge. Reviewers found this accurate but note that your experience will depend on how high your kids keep their volume.
Puro Sound Labs BT2200s relies on passive noise removal offered by the padded ear cups. Reviewers found it adequate but stated that it may or may not be good news for parents. They might help kids with auditory processing or attention concerns focus, but it could also make it harder to get your kids’ attention.
According to Puro, noise cancellation blocks 82% of outside noise.
Volume limiting is the central feature of these headphones. To protect your kids’ hearing, the Puro Sound Lab BT2200s has a volume cut off at 85db -- the recommended maximum volume to protect your hearing. Reviewers were happy with this feature, noting that you don’t have to worry about your kids disabling it since the feature is built into the headphones.
There are a good many options for children’s headphones out there at lower prices, but the Puro Sound Labs BT2200s are an excellent option if you’re looking for something a little more polished and premium. With strong noise isolation and wired and wireless use, they offer plenty of ways for your kids to enjoy the games, music, apps, and more.
But unlike a lot of kid-centric options, these look like adult headphones with a splash of color. So if you have kids who are determined to be more grown-up and don’t want something with cat ears, funky lights, or other features, these might be the headphones for you.
Sound Guys stated, “I will say I’m very happy that these headphones don’t lean into a kid-centric aesthetic, because that sort of thing isn’t always appropriate for the potential audience of these headphones. Adults with small heads do exist, and it’s cool that something can serve many audiences without telegraphing an assumed user type. It can be demeaning.”
PC Magazine says, “The Puro Sound Labs BT2200 might not look like kid-friendly headphones, but they deliver a bass-forward audio experience without going above 85dB.”
