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. The ETY-Kids3 model includes 3-button Apple control.

These are the most inexpensive Etymotic Research earphones. They come with a variety of ear tips, including the regular adult size, as well as tips for smaller ears. The stock tips are fine, but I suggest the Comply P Series Foam Tips (Black) 3-Pair Pack, Medium for an upgrade to the stock silicone or foam rubber tips. The Comply foam tips fit better and are more comfortable, with excellent noise blocking.
These earphones block outside noise just as well as the other models. You won't hear anything except your music.
The sound quality is very good in my opinion, although I haven't compared them with Etymotic's more expensive models.
All earphones have some cord microphonic noise when the cord rubs against your clothes or body. But compared to other earphones I've tried, this model is not bad at all.
We were looking for a earbud or headphone which would block out external noise for our child. The use case would be in the car so he can tune out his brother and while doing home work (maybe with music or noise machine). My biggest worry was that he would not like putting these in his ears. Since this is a gift which has yet to be giving the jury is still out on that. This review is solely being given on my testing them to make sure they work. Edit: having now tried them he loves them (after playing around with the different ear pieces it comes with).
I bought these since I have a pair of Etymotic HF3 which I love. Like the HF3 these are placed into the ear canal, like an ear plug. They are a little tricky to place in the ear and it takes practice but once in properly I have found them to be extremely comfortable. This seams to be a personal issue which others may have strong disagreement with. When music is not playing they work just like an ear plug in that they...
If you have small ears, these are great headphones. I have a few ER headsets but my husband complains the ear tips are too large and these are perfect. You can also add the larger ear tips to these if you do have larger ears. I was worried about the "safe listening" aspect thinking they would be too quiet but that is not an issue. I have no idea how loud kids like to listen to things but these still get loud enough for me to feel uncomfortable.
