Reviewed and judged by a seasoned panel of parents, educators and professionals, Creative Child Awards Program recognizes nabi Headphones as the best product in its category that is safe and innovative that kids love and parents trust. The award program is hosted by Creative Child Magazine, the authority in providing parents with the latest information on how to safely nurture children's creativity.

As the world's first dual-mode headphones with SafeSound Technology™, nabi Headphones was crowned product of the year for its innovation and quality. It was praised for delivering powerful audio performance while addressing an important issue with its thoughtful design. nabi Headphones has dual modes: kid-safe nabi Mode to limit the volume without compromising sound quality at 80dB to protect young developing ears from ruining their hearing at an early age and unrestricted Parent Mode™ for the more mature music lovers.
