Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good headphones for kids I was searching for good headphones for my six years old daughter. I know the brand JBL very well and I was always satisfied with their products. Therefore I chose JBL-headphones for my daughter. We use the headphones now for two weeks and my daughter is very happy with them. It was important for me, that the headphones are safe for the ears of my daughter. With a maximum volume set under 85dB the headphones are very safe. Additionally the product shut out all noise and distraction with „Active Noise Cancelling“. The handling is easy for kids and they can communicate with the built-in mic. The price is ok, too and I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect NC for Kids I got this one for my daughter. She is 3 years old and have a noise one year brother. So she need a really good headphone to canceling her brother... Fitting is easy and wearing very comfy. The noise canceling isnt the same as an adult headphone, but perfect for kids. Not too much, but enough! Bluetooth pairing is easy and fast. The 3.5 jack can also use with an empty battery, without NC. Only negativ: i buyed the wrong color

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love it! The headphones arrived safely and were immediately put into operation. We all like the color and the design. My son tried it out straight away and is thrilled. The pads on the headphones are very soft and comfortable. They fit my 5-year-old daughter as well as our 8-year-old son. He finds it very pleasant even after prolonged use. The sound is great and my kids love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Headphones for children We have been using the headphones for 3 weeks now. About 1 hour a day. We haven't even had to charge the battery until now. They are comfortable to wear. the volume and sound are very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique sound My son (10 years old) was really skeptical at first. Because he couldn't see a microphone and really wanted to have headphones with a microphone. He was instantly connected to his cell phone via Bluetooth. The padding is super soft and also suitable for people who wear glasses. I've heard music about it myself, the sound is clean and really great. A huge disadvantage is the much too short charging cable. Because if you have forgotten to load it, you can't just load it on the side.

Product Q&A

Hi! Could this be used by a 3year old? . I need some headphones for my son to take on a flight&nbsp;

Asked by: Sidney15
Why would you recommend the jr310 BT over this for a 3 year old for a plane journey? &nbsp;I am curious as we are in the same situation and thought this would be suitable given the ANC function.

Is it possible to completely shut off the bluetooth transceiver in wired mode, or is BT always on? How does this impact battery duration?

Asked by: Von R
ANC on has more impact on the battery than Bluetooth. You could use our JBL JR460 in wired mode with ANC on. Please make sure that the BT of your phone/source device is turned off.

What age group is this headphone most comfortable for? My daughter is 9 years old and afraid this might be too small. If it is, what would you recommend for a 9-10 year old?

Asked by: hawaiian_texan
Thank you for your inquiry about the JBL 460NC. The headphones are still adjustable via the headband. Here are the Kids headphones that we also have available: https://bit.ly/3lKXb6f. We recommend that you go to the nearest store or dealer that may have the headphones so that you can test them out.

I would like to use these in a video classroom for voiceover recording. Is the microphone noise cancelling as well to alleviate other classroom noises while recording a voiceover?

Asked by: wen d
Our JBL JR 460NC's microphone does not have the active noise cancelling feature but these headphones have a microphone sensitivity of -27dBV@1kHz/Pa which makes your voice audible enough for the mic to recieve.

Why aren&rsquo;t the pink and blue color options available? I have a girl and boy and would love to buy the colored headphones but they are unavailable everywhere. Are they discontinued and no longer available?&nbsp;

Asked by: Anonymous
Our JBL JR460NC was only designed in the color white. You may be referring to our JBL JR300BT. We have this available in pink, blue, and teal.

Hi! Do these headphones work with Bluetooth splitters? I have had trouble using multiple headphones with a Bluetooth splitter on my tv before.&nbsp;

Asked by: Nikn00
Sadly, we can't make any recommendations because every transmitter has different software. We always recommend direct connection to the source device.
