    It was ALL the store had for children headphones

    Headphones for my child was the whole reason why I stopped that day. And this brand, the monkey and shark headphones were the ONLY child headphones they had. I bought this because one side of my childs headphones busted on our journey for a family trip. This was all they had. They didn't have any of the cool avengers/transformers/spongebob headphones that they sold around the holidays and that places like walmart or target already carry on a normal given day. I was disappointed but bought these anyway. My child looked at these in horror and said no way. He refused to even open them. But I open the top and without removing them from the box had the little dude touch them. And the furry part was just too scratchy for him. And it was something I was a little worried about because he has sensory processing disorder. But these scratchy brand headphones was literally the only option for children the best buy had. I ended up having to return them at a best buy store closer to home and had to go elsewhere for cool headphones that offered sound protection for his ears and cost the same price.

    Broken Within 2 Weeks

    Do not buy these headphones. I bought them for my daughter who loved the look of them. I did like the retractable cord feature, but they will not last. The first pair I purchased shorted out at the plug after about 3 weeks. Thinking it was a fluke, I returned them and purchased a second paid. The second pair shorted out in the same spot after only 2 weeks. Both times when I went to return them, the rep at Best Buy told me it was too late to return them because they only accept returns for 14 days. Being that I have Elite status they said they would give me 30 days. I am not happy to find out that Best Buy only accepts returns for 2 weeks now. That was not the case in the past. In regards to the headphones, beware of the quality. In regards to the shortened return policy, think about this before making any purchase you are unsure about OR are skeptical of the quality.

    Great sound but one must wonder how long will it last in the hands of your young child. After a couple weeks of use, the cord wouldn't extend and eventually broke after numerous attempts. Good thing we paid for the protection plan. Getting an exchange was inconvenient since we were required to go into the store which I avoid due to poor staffing which means long waits for assistance. The first employee wouldn't even look for the item. He simply said, "The system says we only have four left in stock and that item been removed from the sales floor." My four year old's response to this was, "Oh no, that's bad news." and shook her head in disappointment. broke my heart seeing this because she loves these "cuuuuuuute" headphones. To which a second employee responded, "Oh no. It's not bad news. I'm going to find them for you." She took the time to go look and saved the day.

    Junk

    These headphones are junk. They claim to be adjustable but they don't adjust much and you can't make them small enough to stay on a small child's head, especially with any movement (something small children never do). The ear pads are flat with little padding and seem uncomfortable. The retractable cord is very fragile and I had to pull on it several times to get it to fully retract. My daughter thought they were the cutest thing ever and got upset when I immediately put them back in the box to return them as I was afraid they would break quickly. Bought a pair of LilGadgets (they come in several colors) for the same price and they are far better quality, great adjustability and much more comfortable with soft padding.

    Adorable, but jack is cheap

    My little girl loved these, but we keep having to replace them because the jack keeps breaking on them. My guess is she pulls on the wire to take it out of her device and it breaks the wire. While that could be considered her fault for not pulling the cord out properly, consider that these are produced to be used by kids. There's volume control so it doesn't get too loud and cute, fuzzy animal ear covers. If they want to make kids' headphones, make them durable enough for kids! The quality of the wiring is comparable to that of the Dollar Store. Lucky for me they break before the return policy runs out and I just keep exchanging them. Next time it happens, I'll just return them and buy something better quality.

    Nice, but not for flying

    If my 4 year old daughter wasn't with me when purchasing head phones, these would not have come home with us. Unfortunately, they did. We travel/fly quite often and needed a new pair for her. They are super cute, and the retractable cord is awesome, has even continued working for longer than expected. The downside with the cuteness is they are not a snug fit on the ears. At home or maybe the car they would be alright, but on an airplane they don't block any outside noise (I wasn't expecting Bose Noise cancelling, but hoped for some reduction of ambient sound) and you have to turn the volume all the way up to hear anything they are plugged into. I will have to 'lose' these before our next flight.

    My 3 yr old loves it!

    I initially bought it simply because my 3 year old son saw it, grabbed it, and wouldn't let it go. We were looking for a pair of headphones for him anyways so it all worked out. He absolutely loves them! He actually just wears them around the house for no good reason at all. That is where the BIG plus is because these headphones have a retractable cord so he can't trip on it. I put them on and turned on some tunes to check them out and they have some pretty good sound quality. I also like that the volume can't go too high, but not to the point where you can barely hear anything.

    not very kid friendly

    These are cute and all but they do not hold up to the abuse of kids. The first set didn't last a month before the plug broke. After we had them replaced under warranty the cord got stuck halfway out. After finally getting the cord out, it wouldn't retract. This was two days after opening the packaging. They get hot on the kid's ears because the "fur" is covering the inside completely as well. I'd be willing to overlook some of these problems if they were cheaper. If your child cannot live without them, I highly recommend the extended warranty, I will be getting the third set this weekend.
