Finally! Headphones actually designed with children in mind! I won’t let mine wear the in-ear buds that came with their MP3 players, but I still worry that without constant monitoring (and often with it) they’ll have them up too loud and damage their ears.
So when JVC contacted me about these new specially-designed 3+ headphones with correct sizing, lightweight super-soft padding AND noise limitation, I jumped at the chance of a review. Only when they arrived, they were the pink version. Which is VERY pink*. My boys recoiled in horror at the very sight of them, but happily Tim over at BringingUpCharlie volunteered his daughter’s services.
Sally’s first reaction was encouraging – Tim mailed me to say “Sally thinks they’re ‘doody’ (whatever that means)…” – doesn’t get much finer, I think.
Here’s what Sally says now she’s been using them for a while:
“These funky JVC headphones are fantastic, especially if you have an annoying little brother who likes to make a lot of noise when you are trying to listen to your iPod! They seem to block out all the sounds from around you and the quality and clarity of the music or audio is amazing.
Another great thing about the headphones is that they are so comfortable. The padding makes them very easy on the ears and they are adjustable so they can fit perfectly on any size of head. I am listening to my music as I am writing this and it’s all I can hear in a room full of people and toys that sing and dance and generally create a nuisance.
The headphones are a real ‘must have’ for anyone with an iPod or similar device because they make listening to music and audios a real joy to do :) ”
(*Fret not – they do come in blue too!)
