Design and Comfort
Puro Sound Labs BT2200 amplify with foam and faux leather. Thus, they look reasonably a bit fancy because of it. Also, the leather headband lengthen quite considerably, so they fit an adult head, even although a bit tightly. The headphones are big enough to fit adults, even though the design on their ears doesn’t relax all day, which is probably a good thing.
Why Good thing? Let me explain.
The on-ear earcups create a little pressure on the adult head but create better stability on the baby’s head. In general, we want comfortable headphones that you can wear for hours without discomfort. But when it comes to children, it is best to limit their use of electronics. The young mind is dominant and needs to be protected.
While Puro Sound Labs BT2200 is quite comfortable, the design on the ears will cause a bit of discomfort after a while. And this is a good thing. It happens that your child puts down his phone or tablet and does something else after one or two hours.
The on-ear earpads…
The BT2200 on-ear is not much smaller than the grown-up headphones, so parents can put them away if needed. The fit should be tight to keep the small head steady, although even adults can wear it for a while. Moreover, the build quality is solid, the tiny earcups still make them relatively light. Your child will not complain about it.

Puro Sound Labs BT2200 comes with an excellent audio quality, which even a mature man will enjoy with some limitations. Moreover, the vocals are forward and clean, which makes them the centerpiece of many songs. High lyrics do not distort and remain in the best range while they are still able to shine some. The bass has punches but is not overly powerful or over-stressed. It’s a fun voice signature that’s perfect for binding on music, cartoons and YouTube videos.
For these reasons, they create a versatile pair of headphones that more than satisfy a kids’ need for sound quality.
The only thing that trouble me …
When the music is played silently, the sound of hissing comes in the background and obscures the music. If you listen carefully, it is always there but hard to hear at high volume.
However, a child may not notice or complain about it, but may be an adult.
In our experience, we have actually got 18 hours and 21 minutes from 100% to 0%. This is close to the estimated 20 hours of battery life. With that, we put the headphones at maximum volume because 85 dB is less than normal. If you listen to music in low volume, you will get more than 20 hours of playing time. This is plenty of time for baby headphones and you don’t have to charge them frequently.
If the battery dies, you can use a cable with a volume limiter. Most other headphones lose the ability to limit the volume if their battery dies, not the BT2200.
You charge them via USB to micro-USB cable, although there is no fast charging capability or wireless charging.
Talking about the connectivity, One thing your child will appreciate is how easy it is to turn it on and off. Many modern Bluetooth headphones require you to press and hold the power button for a specific number of seconds. This procedure might be a bit challenging for a 3-year-old, for example. Because, for most modern Bluetooth headphones you need to press and hold the power button for a precise second. For example, for 3 year olds this process can be a bit challenging.
That’s why the Puro BT2200 has a prominent on and off switch button with clear icons on and off. In addition, the LED indicator flashes slowly when it is turned on. This makes it easier for young children to understand when wireless headphones are on or off.
Additionally, you can control the volume by pressing the + and – buttons. The beep indicates once you reach the maximum volume. Like the Sony WH-1000XM4, It com with a SBC audio codec support and not support ANC.
One thing’s missing…
Normally, the built-in controls can also change songs back and forth, but not the Puro BT2200.
You have basic functionality left:
- Play / pause music
- Start pairing mode
- Answer / Reject phone calls
- Send a phone call to your phone or back to the headset
- Volume increase / decrease
There’s a unique feature
Like Bluetooth Multipoint, The Puro Sound Labs BT2200 can be used to share music with another pair of headphones. You connect them via Bluetooth or a 3.5mm AUX cable and then use a micro-USB to micro-USB cable to connect another headphone. However, it only works for headphones that have a micro-USB port, but this is a great way for 2 kids to see and hear the same thing together.
If you want children’s headphones that fit 3-year-olds and early teens, probably adults, Puro Sound Labs BT2200 is the best choice. With built-in mic and Bluetooth connectivity, they are future-proof and perfect for listening to music as well as online lessons.
Add a relatively mature-looking design, and even teenagers won’t make fun of them.
They will serve you for years to come as long as you take proper care of them. And that makes them worth the 100 price tag.

Frequently asked questions
How good is the Bluetooth device of Puro Sound Labs BT2200?
The new Puro Sound Labs BT2200 model comes with Bluetooth 5.0. Which offers better stability and range than previous versions. Also, in our test the connection remained completely stable in the average range of about 33ft (10m). You can also listen to music at about 50ft (15m), but beyond that, it starts to distort and eventually disconnects.
Moreover, the range is naturally shortened when you put a wall between the headphones and your music device. Bluetooth usually continues to work on the 1st wall, but problems arise when you introduce the 2nd wall.
While this doesn’t sound bad, it’s a distinctive feature of modern Bluetooth headphones.
How do you connect the Puro Sound Labs BT2200 with Bluetooth?
- Turn them on with the on/off switch
- Press and hold the Bluetooth button to start pairing mode (LED blinks blue)
- Find a new Bluetooth device on your phone or tablet
- Tap to pair
When you turn them on for the first time, they automatically go into pairing mode.
One thing that is not perfect…..
When connected to Bluetooth, the sound of silent hissing comes in the background after pausing the music. It only lasts a few seconds and probably won’t bother your baby too much.
Still, we remember this “feature” of the past when Bluetooth headphones were a novelty. Modern models have fixed it, so if we look at it today we consider it negative from a bygone era.
