KidzGear sent us their new wireless headphones to test out and review. We opted for the pink ones since the girls would rather have pink than blue. KidzGear wireless headphones are available in both pink and blue. Their wired headphones come in a variety of colors including black, blue, pink, orange, green, purple, and white.
KidzGear has been in business for 15 years and makes an award-winning line of kids headphones. Their wired headphones are very affordable at around $19.95 on gearforkidz.com and $15.99 on Amazon.com. KidzGear new BlueTooth wireless headphones cost around $49.95 and come with a Free Boom microphone. The Boom mic is also available separately at and the storage bag (which is super nice by the way and lined with a velour fabric) costs only $5.99. I would buy this bag to store other things like small toys for the car because it’s so well-made.

The KidzGears wireless headphones can be transformed into a Boom Microphone Headset Headphone or even standard Wired Headphone with the simple addition of the included Boom Microphone and audio cable. These headphones come with a unique detachable Boom mic that allows the child to add microphone capabilities when using educational software or Google Hangouts with friends or grand parents.
The KidzGear wireless headphones use standard Bluetooth protocols and have a receiver range up to 10 meters (30 feet). You can use these in the car to keep give you a little peace and quiet on your next trip. On one side of the headphones you will find the LED indicator light, Volume buttons, Play/Pause/Answer Buttons, ON/OFF switch and Forward buttons. The buttons are easy to reach and also easy to read. Since the buttons are raised the girls easily felt their way to figure out what buttons controlled what features. On the other side is the KidzGear logo and the cover to the USB connection. The rubberized door opens so you can insert the USB cable for charging.
The bottom of the headphones is where you will find the jack to put the Boom microphone. The other jack is for the audio cable. If the headphones run out of battery power, they can still be used with the included audio cable as standard headphones.
Once the headphones were fully charged we paired them with our iPad. It was easy and took just a few minutes. To pair the KidzGear Wireless headphones, just enabled BlueTooth under your tablet/phone settings and then turn the headphones one and press the Play/Pause button for 5 seconds until the LED light changes from red to blue and then release your finger. That’s it!

So far we are loving the convenience of not having any wires. The girls say the sound is great and unlike some reviews we have read, we haven’t had any issues with the pads coming off the ear pieces. KidzGear may have fixed that issue on the models we received.
