Kidz Gear, the company ran by Lauren and Jack Petersen, who I talked to over dinner at Fleur at CES, Las Vegas, last week…

Has a new announcement. Here’s the press release:

Kidz Gear Logo Dec 09

Kidz Gear, the award-winning Grown-up Performance, Built for Kids! brand, announced today that KidzControl™ Volume Limited Headphones for Kids has won the 2013 Learning Magazine’s Teachers’ Choice Award for Excellence in Classroom Products.

Learning Magazine recognized the Kidz Gear KidzControl™ Volume Limited Headphones for Kids as one of the most outstanding classroom recommended products of 2013 in the “School Supplies Category.” Kidz Gear won the award because it is a perfect tool for helping teachers in the multimedia educational process of all children. Compatible with audio devices that use a 3.5mm (1/8”) audio jack, the Kidz Gear headphones work with MP3 players, iPads, iPods and even standard DVD and CD players – all of which are playing a larger role in classrooms today.

The Choice for Teachers Nationwide with Kidz Gear Gear Up For Education! Purchase Program

“We are honored to win the Teachers’ Choice Award for our KidzControl Volume Limited Headphones,” said Jack Peterson, VP Sales and Marketing, Kidz Gear. “Combined with our Gear Up For Education! Purchase Program, we have certainly become a new choice for teachers nationwide. Along with excellent teachers, children need good equipment and Kidz Gear is here with the goods!”

KidzControl Volume Limit Technology

All Kidz Gear headphones feature the proprietary KidzControl Volume Limit Technology. The technology works by “limiting” the volume to approximately 80% of the maximum volume output capable from the audio devices in the market today. KidzControl Volume Limit Technology delivers a safe volume limited listening experience for children of all ages. Ergonomically designed with soft padded child-sized ear-cups and high-quality audio components, the KidzControl™ Volume Limited Headphones for Kids are value priced at only $19.99.

Kidz Gear is the Brand Adults Want and Kids Love

Kidz Gear headphones are not “toys,” but adult products built for kids. Manufactured with the same high-quality, high-performance consumer electronics components found in adult headphones, Kidz Gear headphones are designed to solve the never-ending battle between a child’s desire for his or her parent’s things and the parent’s fear of them destroying an expensive item. KidzControl™ Volume Limited Headphones for Kids are available immediately, priced at $19.99, from U.S. retailers, such as Target and InMotion Airport Stores. They are also available directly at, and other fine online retailers.

Congratulations to KidzGear!
