Five Suggested Tablets
Walmart Onn 10.1” 16 GB Android Tablet
Hearing.Games has purchased one of these tablets and tested Kids Hearing Game on it. We know it to be compatible. It does seem like a good option. Not very expensive. The 10 inch screen is very engaging. The audio jack is a convenient location to play Kids Hearing Game, as are the volume and power buttons. We cannot yet claim that we have experience using this device in a clinic.
Walmart Onn Android Tablet, 8”
Hearing.Games has purchased one of these tablets and tested Kids Hearing Game on it. We know it to be compatible. The 8” form factor may be a little more friendly for the small hands of a younger patient. We cannot yet claim that we have experience using this device in a clinic.
Amazon Fire 7 Tablet
Hearing.Games has extensive experience using this tablet in clinical settings. It works well, is a nice form factor and offers good support. Setup can be a little involved as it requires an Amazon account be associated with the device. It comes in a variety of colors too.
Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet
Just as with the Amazon Fire 7, Hearing.Games has extensive experience using this tablet in a clinical setting. This version offers a “2 year worry-free guarantee. If they break it, return it and we’ll replace it for free. No questions asked.” The vibrant colors are kid friendly as is the large bumper case.
Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet
Identical to the Kids Edition Tablet, but without the bumper and extra replacement guarantee. The Fire HD 8 family of tablets has a little more RAM and faster CPU so it is slightly more ‘future proof’ than the Amazon Fire 7 Tablet.
Koss UR-20 Home Headphones
Here’s a great pair of headphones. Comfortable and lightweight over-ear design. These are the headphones being used in a large number of West Virginia clinics.
