Great for adults and children
8 February 2013
I bought a pair of these for me as they were very cheap when I bought them and my third pair of more expensive headphones had broken. I only really listen to my music or podcasts in bed, or out and about on walks - so I have to confess, the absolute quality of the music and whether or not I'm picking out all the nuances are not really an issue for me.
Yes, they are noise-limiting so if you want the music played at full blast in your ears - these are not for you! I found them easily loud enough for my purposes - especially since they are a good fit - so you can block out a lot of the background noise that way. I was so impressed that I bought a pair for my 10 year old son who wanted headphones for his ipod- but I wanted to protect his hearing. As he wanted the blue ones I had to pay more than double the price I'd paid for mine - but I was happy to do so, given my experience with them. He has made no comment about them not being loud enough and he loves the look of them. Two happy customers!
