Wins for First Wireless Car Headphones Designed Specifically for Kids

March 11, 2010, El Dorado Hills, CA -- Kidz Gear, the award-winning Grown-up Performance, Built for Kids! brand, announced today that Kidz Gear has won the Audioholics 2009 Consumer Excellence Award for the second year in a row for their Wireless Car Headphones for Kids (the Wired Headphones for Kids won the 2008 award). Kidz Gear Wireless Car Headphones for Kids are the first wireless car headphones on the market designed specifically for children, the largest user market of car DVD and video systems.

100% Compatible with all U.S. Cars with Built-in IR DVD/Video

U.S. automakers have offered DVD and advanced audio systems for their vehicles for years, with the majority of these systems using wireless IR technology. The standard headphones that come with the vehicle are not designed for children -- they are uncomfortable, large and bulky. Kidz Gear solves this problem with its lightweight Wireless Car Headphones for Kids with uniquely sized headbands and comfortably padded ear-cups. Other features include automatic power-off when not in use; independent volume control on the ear-cup; extremely rich sound quality for a variety of video and audio content; and 100% Compatibility with all U.S. cars that support a built-in IR DVD or video system.

Audioholics recognized Kidz Gear Wireless Car Headphones for Kids as one of the most advanced and forward-thinking products in the “Specialty CE Category.” Kidz Gear Wireless Car Headphones for Kids won the award because it serves consumers directly and is a product which will make an impact in 2010 and beyond. Audioholics said, “The uniquely sized ear-cups, headband and comfortable padding have made the Kidz Gear products currently the number one selling headphones for children. Now, Kidz Gear has done it again with their NEW Wireless Car Headphones for Kids!”

“We are very honored to win the Audioholics award two years in a row,” said Jack Peterson, VP Sales and Marketing, Kidz Gear. “We have tons of fans for our wired headphones that wanted something to use for watching DVDs and listening to music in the car. Children need good equipment too and Kidz Gear is here with the goods!”
