    What's the best headphone brand for kids? Those volume-controlled ones.

    You may check on a Sony MDR-222KD Children's Headphones.

    Thank you, I'll surely check this. I also need to weight which ones are more affordable. Sarah is antisocial and her therapist encourages her to listen to music and audiobooks and listen to kids' stories. Considering pediatric counseling, as per this article https://www.betterhelp.com/advice/counseling/does-my-child-need-pediatric-counseling/. The headphones may damage her ears so she was advised to use those that were specifically for kids.

    Okay, no worries. Now, I understand. I hope you'll be able to find the appropriate headphone for Sarah.

    I got my kid a Hello Kitty one from Amazon. Like this. (She's 6.) I have no idea how good quality it is, in fact it is probably terrible, but she certainly does not care, she loves them. Importantly the volume is limited.

    There are zillions of these things on Amazon, I'd suggest searching for some kids character she likes + headphones and odds are results will be volume limited kids ones. It should say volume limited in the description.

    I bought a pair of monoprice headphones.... think they were $20 or $30ish. Seemed to work pretty well.. get ones with a detachable audio cable.. cable is usually first thing to go if it gets pulled on too hard.

    I bought my toddler these for when we fly. She keeps them on for the entire flight. You have different color options as well.
