I believe that children learn if they go out into the world and explore. But I, as a parent, also realize that during these times, they also need to understand how to deal with technology. It’s our responsibility as a parent to care for their safety and privacy, when they use gadgets. Do you know that 4 out 5 children from ages 2-14 have their own laptop, smartphone, game console or tablet worth an average of $300 or Php 15,000. Parents allow these children an average of 2.21 hours on their gadgets everyday.

My daughter probably uses her table and iPhone around the same number of hours per day. No matter how much activities she does and is enrolled in to keep her active, when she gets home, she really looks for these gadgets. Since I work in the evening, we ask her to use her JBL JR headphones.

Why do I like JBL JR over other headphones for kids?

  • It prioritizes safety over all other things. JBL Pure Bass sound signature tuned in for lower sound pressure level; This is so as to keep the ears of our little ones safe.
  • The JBL JR 300BT has up to 13 Hours Battery Life and 2 hours recharging time
  • You can actually charge it for 10 minutes for one hour usage.
  • I’m waiting for the JBL JR 300BT (since my daughter has the JBL JR 300) because of the BlueTooth technology. You don’t need to worry about the hassle of having wires and connect to your smartphone via BlueTooth.
  • I love the cute colors. I especially like the teal and purple one.

  • Your kids can actually personalize the headphones using the stickers that are inside the box.
  • Comfortable to wear because of the cushions on the headband and ear cups and the headbands are adjustable. Also, even is you twist it, it’s very durable.

Some of the things that I feel though that needs to be worked on more is the fit. Sometimes, it slides off the head of my daughter. She loves to dance around, so I need headphones that will really fit her head perfectly.

I love that it’s affordable at Php 2999. These headphones are available at JBL stores and dealers all over the country!

Technology is an important part on my life. Although I don’t watch TV at all (this is really true!), my laptop, mobile phone, earphones and speakers are my most treasured material possessions. I’m sure you get why my laptop and phone is important, but my earphones and speakers are important, too, because…

1) I listen to music from Spotify while working. Music relaxes me.
2) I listen to music or Podcasts while traveling.
3) I need my speakers because I normally watch You Tube videos and downloads using my computer.

Yes, I’m that type of person. Haha! So recently, I was thrilled to attend the Harman and JBL event. I know i’m not a tech blogger and gadget specs are not part of my vocabulary, but I really wanted to see the products of Harman and JBL and see how the products stand out from the others in terms of function, design and quality of sound. For those who are not yet familiar with the brand, HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated is the award-winning maker of outstanding audio and entertainment solutions. Harman has won 116 awards for 70 unique products from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), producer of the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), for its wireless sound systems that make use of Bluetooth and Near Field Communications (NFC) technology for just the past two years — how amazing is that!

“HARMAN recognizes the importance of providing stylish products that deliver not only high-quality technology, but also a sense of connectedness and we are very proud to introduce these new products to the Philippine market”, says Lauro Secreto, representative from Harman International Singapore.

I tried out and listened to the sound of the Harman Kardon Products and the sound quality was superb. I love the design, too. I’m just scared that if I purchase the ones seen above, my daughter who loves throwing things around might break these. She’s like me — we have this thing that with whatever gadget we touch, it suddenly gives up on us (without meaning to break it).

From all the products from Harman Kardon, I love this. This is the Harman Soho Wireless Headphones. I love it’s really classy and sleek design. What’s so cool about it is that you can change from one song to another by swiping the leather cover of your ear.

Harman Soho Mini --- my favorite!

For JBL, my favorite product is this. This is the JBL Reflect. It can be connected via bluetooth, which I love because there is less wiring. I hate wires cause when I keep it inside my bag, with a thousand things, it gets all tangled up. It’s called reflect since the wiring has a reflector. It’s perfect for those who love to go jogging at night.

While creating this post, I’m actually using my own JBL Micro Wireless. I love it since the sound comes out really nice. I also carry it along with me now since I use it for presentations.
