Those pesky earphones that come with a brand spankin’ new iPhone or iPad last for all of five minutes and aren’t always suitable for mini ears. They fall out all the time, aren’t really hygienic for sharing and constantly get tangled up. Enter onanoff, a company that sorts out simple electronics. Their BuddyPhones offer limited-volume headphones for kids, that encourages safe listening (the volume can’t go higher than 85 decibels). So the next time you’re need to pop Peppa Pig on for a period of quiet, attach this to your device.
Available for $194 from www.onanoff.com
