Sound is great but durability not so much
on October 9, 2012
We bought two pairs of these for our kids who are 6 and 3. I read a lot of reviews before purchasing and went with these due the sound quality other reviewers claimed they have, the style, and the low price point. Our kids loved them and they fit their heads just fine. They're slightly big on our 3 y/o but not really an issue. But, after 6 weeks, one of them snapped off while plugged into our ipad, so the head of the jack is lodged in there, which means there's no sound until you get it removed. I learned quickly that this is a somewhat common issue with ipads due to the design of the headphone input. And $100+ is a standard repair charge to have it removed. Looking at other more durable headphones, it does seem that this is strike against these where the cheapness of the material caught up with us, so I felt compelled to warn others to take this into account when looking at these. We may still use them in other devices but on a more limited basis, and we wouldn't purchase them again for these reasons.
