Fuhu's nabi Headphones Wins PC Mag's Editors' Choice Award

The First Dual-Mode Headphones With DJ Quality Sound Made for Kids Recognized for Performance, Design and Innovation

EL SEGUNDO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 16, 2013) - Fuhu, Inc., creator of the award winning nabi tablet (, announced today that nabi® Headphones, the first dual-mode headphones with DJ quality performance, received PC Mag's Editors' Choice Award. PC Mag, the leader in rigorous lab-based reviews of consumer electronics, gave nabi Headphones 4 out of 5 stars. It is the first volume limiting headphones for kids to receive PC Mag's Editors' Choice Award.

PC Mag editors have awarded the nabi Headphones for its powerful audio performance with deep bass and crisp highs. nabi Headphones are praised for its clever design that can be switched to kid-safe nabi Mode to limit the volume without compromising sound quality at 80dB to protect young developing ears from ruining hearing at an early age -- a growing concern since the entrance of MP3 players in the market.

"We haven't tested too many kid-focused headphones -- in fact, the two models that come to mind are in-ear options," says Tim Gideon of PC Mag. "Of the three, the nabi Headphones are the standout -- you can just do a lot more, in terms of design, with the added real estate a larger pair of headphones provides. The nabi Headphones are competing in a thin but necessary field, and they easily win our Editors' Choice Award."

"We are honored to receive PC Mag's Editors' Choice Award for our nabi Headphones," says Jim Mitchell, CEO of Fuhu. "Being recognized with this award is a testament to our uncompromising dedication to delivering innovative products and solutions that are powerful and entertaining even for adults but made for a child's experience."

nabi Headphones are powered by the same advanced circuitry and drivers as more expensive headphones in the market that are twice the price.
