The Best Headphones for Elementary Students

The Best Headphones for Elementary Students and Kids


Any elementary educator knows the struggle of finding the perfect pair of headphones for students. So many headphones are either too bulky, hurt students' ears, have poor sound quality, are extremely expensive and the list goes on! I'm here to tell you about THE BEST headphones I have come across after visiting a countless number of schools and talking to MANY educators and students. This is not a sponsored blog post😉.

I present to you the affordable and colorful headphones made by LILGADGETS. I first saw Lilgadget headphones in a computer lab I visited a few years ago. They were folded up so nicely and stored in a plastic hanging shoe organizer. I wish I had taken a picture! I was immediately drawn towards all of the beautiful different color options.

The lab I mentioned above opted to have different colored headphones. However I quickly realized the kids were fighting over the colors. Who could blame them? I know I would want to use the purple set💁. Therefore, if I were in charge of a lab or had my own classroom I would make sure to stick with one color.

That's exactly what my friend, Kim from A Love of Teaching, did! After we chatted one day about these headphones, she set out to purchase them for her lab, media center and a Chromebook cart at her school. She got a set of all blue headphones for her computer lab, a set of green headphones for their media center, and a set of purple headphones for the Chromebook cart. She and her students are in LOVE.

  1. What can you tell me about durability? Do the posts stay in? We have a major problem with the metal part pulling out of the cord.

    1. Yes, in my experience, everything stays intact and is very durable. They do have a one year warranty in case you have an issue.

  2. I have 4 pair of these headphones and they have worked great with my smaller kids in 2nd grade. Now I teach 4th grade and some of my kids are a bit to large for them. They have worked great for about 5 years, I do have one pair that have stopped working?
    I do wish I could find some just a bit larger for my larger students, because they love to use them. I love that when they finish using them they just fold them up and put them away! I would like to know if there are any others that will work for larger students?

    1. Hi! Which style do you have? The Connect + are recommended for ages 3 and up. The Connect+Pro are recommended for children ages 6 and up. Perhaps the Pro would fit your older students a bit better?
