JBuddiesPlay Wireless Headset

Having a set of noise limited headset for a younger child is important as once a child’s hearing starts to get impaired it’s a one way street. Also important for a younger child is not to plug the ears and that any headphones or headset are wire less for obvious reasons as you don’t want them strangling one another.

The distance from the centre of the well-padded headband to the top of the also well-padded ear pieces is 10.5cm with no side expansion, this can increase to 13cm fully expanded, total weight is 123grams.

Unlike other headsets where the speech arm sticks out or is a removable piece this unit has one that is curled up inside the right earpiece and pulls out to the chin area when required, it is up to 8cm long and is flexible.

Apart from the headset and a Getting Started sheet that has a very pleasant surprise are the USB to micro USB charging lead and fitting into the same point on the headset a micro USB to 3.5mm lead with volume control for those times when Bluetooth is not available such as with an MP3 player as both these leads would pull out under pressure there is no danger of injury to anyone.

Although not designed for an adult I was able to wear them ‘on ear’ with full extension of the sides so I can say sound quality was excellent. For a younger child this headset would be over their ears.

It comes with a two year warranty and a 30 day return period if not satisfied.

The volume level is limited to avoid careless use with too high a volume but for normal use it is fine and no danger of excessive volume damaging the child’s hearing now or in later life.

All the controls are on the right earpiece, the micro USB for charging and corded connection, the pull out boom microphone that turns the headphones into a headset and finally the Bluetooth button, short press to turn on which gives a blue flashing LED and for a new connection a 8 second press which will allow linking to a phone and you know you are in this mode as the LED flashes alternate blue and red until linked.

While my tests were solely with a couple of different phones and a notebook it’s also stated to work with Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo.

So what is the pleasant surprise I mentioned earlier, it’s a three month free subscription to TIDAL probably the best streaming platform and this would normally cost £10.99 a month, so over the three month trial you have got back more than the cost of the headset.

At the time of publication the JBuddiesPlay Children’s Wireless Headset is available from Amazon for just £29.99.
