New Cyber Acoustics AC-8000 Headset is Made Just for Kids


Kids like to use headsets just as much as adults, and probably more. And let’s face it, headsets are good for kids because a lot of the stuff they listen to can get on an adults' nerves after hearing it once or twice—or a few hundred times. The main problem with most headsets is that they’re made to fit adults, and they’re just too big to fit children properly. But the AC-8000 Stereo Headset from Cyber Acoustics is sized just right for kids.

The AC-8000 headset has an adjustable headband designed to fit kid-sized heads. They’re also quite durable, so they can take a licking and keep on singing. Because kids have a tendency to turn the volume way up, potentially damaging their hearing, the AC-8000 headset limits the volume while still delivering good sound quality. This can help foster appropriate listening levels for years to come.

The 30mm drivers in the over-the-head AC-8000 headset offer a frequency response from 20 to 20,000 Hz, and each ear cup has its own volume knob to compensate for unbalanced source signals or to set precise levels for various audio applications. Not just for listening, the headset features a flexible unidirectional boom microphone with a frequency response of 100 to 16,000 Hz. That makes these headphones ideal for use with voice-recognition software, audio chat and games.

The AC-8000 headset is rimmed with soft leatherette ear pads for hours of listening comfort. They also feature a 9-foot shielded cord with gold-plated 3.5mm plugs for universal compatibility with all kinds of audio equipment. The headset weighs just 8 ounces.
