    The foam inside the head phone ears is easy to take out. My son shredded it. But the head phones are still usable.

    My daughter has downs and I have been looking for these exact head phones as they are the same she uses at school. Now we can take her more places without worrying if its too noisy for her and watch her get upset. She can carry these and enjoy the places we can now visit. Thank you for making it so very EASY to order and receive promptly.

    Unfortunately the headphones did not reduce sounds by much and therefore did not help my son, who is particularly upset by music, as well as by loud noises. I tried them also and did not find sounds reduced by much, if at all. I will keep trying to find something!

    he is not autistic but hates loud noises. We go every year to a family music festival and it gets overwhelming for him about the time mom and dad are just starting to have fun. I work with kids all over the spectrum so I went online to buy these. He likes them and is looking forward to wearing his “alone headphones.” I am bringing to work this week to see if one of our kiddos will wear them also to help him out at church.

    These work wonderful!! I have a 5 year old boy with autism. He is extremely sensitive to certain sounds and normally screams and cries when he hears them. (lawn edger, drills, blender) He knows now that when he hears these noises he puts on his special ear muffs until the noise is gone. At the park sometimes the groundskeepers will be using their lawn edgers or blowers and he will go nuts. We take them with and he puts them on if the noise is around. I wish I would have found these years ago!! Very happy customer and will be ordering another one to keep in the car.

    Recently, went to the airport to go on vacation. This is a very nervous time for our family traveling. The earphones helped our son go through the airport with ease. There are so many sounds that affect a child with sensitivity to noise.

    We use them during many occasions to help our son enjoy his life (baseball games, restaurants, church, and stores).

    Bought these headphones for my 5-year old who is sensitive/afraid of loud flushes in public bathrooms. Quick delivery (within 1 week of ordering) and good price. I think they are effective as he has been wearing them to the public restrooms and not getting spooked and also he is not avoiding the restrooms, which he was doing earlier.

    After using the hush buddy earphones I am not as pleased with these. They are very stiff to put on but tend to slide off when wearing them. They do a good job of cutting the noise down in loud situations.

    Happy Mom – mom ! (verified owner)

    I had order these for a trial run for my 6 year old grandson.
    He was happy to receive them and excited to take them into school the very next day.
    When he returned home from school, he said, to his mom, his head was good today mommy . I didn’t feel like it was going to explode!
    If you ever helped out in a school luncheon room you know how loud it can be.
    I can only imagine what he’s feeling.
    So, I’m a very happy grandmother! Even if these just tunes this down enough for him to survive lunch time without a meltdown.
    Mom is going to order a few more sets for home and family outings.

    My daughter had been wearing head phones in school, because she covers her ears a lot. They freed up her hands so that she can be better involved in class. We just went to Disney so we wanted our own set for home. We needed them in a hurry so we paid extra for the expedited shipping and they arrived in the mail super fast. Our Disney experience was amazing and she wore them most of the time.

    My son has a lot of sensitivity to noise . So I was really worried about the 4th of July . It was really helpful when it was dark enough to see the fireworks. It was enough of a buffer that he could enjoy it. It wasn’t enough when it was just the noise. They could have been a little more quiet for him

    I wanted headphones for my son so that he could block out extra noise during school or at home during study time. They are just what I needed.
    My son also has sensory issues and so the pressure from the headphones is taking some getting used to. He can only wear them for 5-10min at a time before the bothering outweighs the helpfulness.

    The best part about these “headphones” (that’s what we are calling them) is that they come apart. The first thing our son does when he gets something new is figure out how to “break it down”, usually that leads to broken toys….not these headphones! Plus, he clearly feels safer and more confident in them! Great product!

    These headphones are great because they don’t completely remove all the surrounding sounds. You can hear everything, but at a somewhat muffled tone. They drown out noise that is “too loud” without preventing the child from hearing what’s being said.

  56. Rated 4 out of 5

    Stephanie (verified owner)

    These are nice overall as they are an inexpensive way for my sons to handle places where there is lots of noise and if they set them down and lose them, there is not a lot of money lost. The only negative is that the ear piece comes of pretty easily and that can be a problem in our kids who like to fidget with things and take them apart as it increases the likelihood of us needing to replace them due to missing parts. My husband is working to find a way to attach the ear pieces better so they are less likely to fall off or otherwise get lost. in general, I would buy this product again, however and it does do its job well.

    My oldest son has Autism and is very sensitive to loud sounds. I had been searching for something to help him and I decided to try these. He is excited to try them out at school for the first time. If they work for him I am looking at getting two more pairs for my younger two children who also show signs of sensitivity to loud sounds. I will be checking back for more items that may benefit all my children thank you for a wonderful site and resource for parents like me.

    The hearing protection purchased put a smile on my grandson’s face. I delivered them in a lightweight parachute style backpack and explained to him that he should carry the backpack when he knows he’s going to a place that might be noisy. In addition, I purchased a pack of 10 pairs of soft children’s earplugs with a small carrying case that fits easily into his pocket. Now he has something he can carry in a nondescript manner everyday – just in case something gets too loud and he has his hearing protection for the occasions when we know the sounds might be too loud (movies, busch gardens, etc) Thanks so much!!!

    We bought a number of these for the students on our elementary campus for several of our SPED kids. They do a great job at reducing noise while still allowing students to hear a little bit. We have used these with non-SPED students as well to great effect; even the adults ask for a pair sometimes! Only complaint is that the headphones can snap in the middle easily, there is not a lot of give, and I had to recently purchase more pairs because elementary kids can be rough! Highly recommend these regardless!
