ONANOFF has once again been named a CES Innovation Awards Honoree, this time for the BuddyPhones School+


Hong Kong, December 15, 2020 – ONANOFF announced that it has been named a CES® 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree for BuddyPhones School+ headphones. The announcement was made ahead of the first-ever, all-digital CES 2021, the world’s most influential technology event, happening Jan. 11-14, 2021.

The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products across 28 product categories. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design.


 With remote home learning on the rise, the BuddyPhones School+ kid’s headphones are perfectly designed for this purpose. Volume-limiting circuitry caps loudness at the World Health Organization’s recommended 85dB safe level while a high-quality beam mic picks up the child’s voice clearly and minimizes distracting background noise. The beam mic can be easily detached when it’s not needed and replaced with the standard audio cable for everyday headphone use.

Designed to be long lasting, the headband size can be adjusted to grow with the child. While travelling, it can be folded and stored in the supplied travel bag with ease. The BuddyPhones School+ is fitted with replaceable ear cushions made from Hypo-allergenic and sweat wicking fabric so it can be worn for long periods in extreme comfort. Sharing is made possible with the built-in BuddyJack which allows up to four audio cables to be connected to one device, making them ideal for group projects at school. A set of decorative stickers and name tag labels are included for kids to truly personalize their BuddyPhones.

Like all BuddyPhones, the School+ only uses BPA- and phthalate-free materials, which means we eliminate any exposure to harmful plastics. BuddyPhones are all certified by first-tier global testing labs like TÜV and UL, making sure they are compliant with all safety and environmental standards like RoHS, REACH, PROP65.
