    Very poor wiring.

    Posted

    Worked great for my 7 year old for about 2 months. Then audio started to short out. I took the ear cover off and discovered the cord is held in by being tied in a knot. Then, the ground just has a piece of masking tape to hold it down. The other wires are completely exposed inside the headphone and tangled together. Then, the top of the wire is, again, tied in a knot. Turns out if you try to fully extend the headpiece, the wires are pulled tight inside the ear piece, which made the ground touch the other wires and short it out. But hey, came with a cute bow.

    This set was really underwhelming.

    I had high expectations for these, but unfortunately, these didn't work out so well. I didn't expect Bose quality or anything. They were for my son for a road trip. However, they wouldn't stay sized to his head and even when they were sized right, they didn't stay tight to his ears. On top of that, the sound was really low and muffled. The plan was to let him listen to his music while we listened to our own, however, we just ended up switching off because he couldn't hear. They look great, but he never uses them and I don't blame him.

    Earphones were cheap. It took 5 people in the store b4 the last one actually showed me where to find kid headphones...everyone else just pointed b/c they didn't seem to care if I needed help or not at Bloomingdsle & it was a small purchase even though we spend a lot there...4 people sent me to 3 diff parts of the store & headphones were right by register as you walk in on StarWars did player...Then I couldn't use my Rewards to buy a BB GC, but I couldv'e used it for ITunes etc...but the cashier said no gift cards...I left so annoyed w/the store but I went back to return the cheap headphones & the return desk was more knowledgable & efficient...so I still shop there.....

    Bought these for my daughter to use in the car. Was meant to allow her to listen to her movie in the back seat while we drove cross country, and to listen on the airplane to an iPad. The stupid hearing protection level oif the headphones would not allow you to go past a certain volume setting. Thus in the car, or on the airplane you could not hear anything from the headphones because the volume would not adjust loud enough. We bought a regular set of headphones and the problem was solved. Would never buy a set of hearing protection headphones for a child again.

    Awkward Fit

    Purchased 2 headphones for my granddaughters and it's just OK they do not adjust well on either one of my granddaughters... poor fit/quality for little girls who love JoJo. I tried it on thinking it's because they have tiny skulls but no it didn't fit well on me or my grandson. Sound is not bad but could be better. I purchased much better quality at a cheaper price. The bow is detachable that would be the only plus for this headphone. I will be returning.

    A little too quiet

    Bought these for my 11 year old son to hook up to his 3DS so he could listen to his games without being a distraction while I drive on long car trips. He loves the BB-8 design, and the "cushy" over the ear design, and they actually fit his head- which is tough because he has an adult size head. The only drawback is that they are REALLY quiet- as in difficult to hear even on maximum volume if there is any background noise. I appreciate that they protect his hearing (one of the selling points for me) but they are WAY to low to be of use in cars and airplanes.

    I bought these Paw Patrol headphones for my daughter as a Christmas gift. Within a week, they quit working. They're cheap, poorly made junk. I returned them, spent a little more money and switched her into some Black SkullCandy Hesh 2 Wireless earmuff headphones. Much better quality and I've had a far better experience with these units. Skip the Paw Patrol headphones.

    Design and fit of these headphones are great, but the volume control feature is awful. I thought I was being mindful in buying headphones that would not allow him to over do it. These headphones make it hard for him to even hear his entertainment while we listen to the radio in the car. It was supposed to help, letting him hear his entertainment while we listen to ours. All we have gotten is asking us to turn down ours. Would not buy again!

    Barely Useful

    These headphones are fun to look at, and are useful in limited situations. As long as you're sitting at home with no background noise, they're great. But, if you're driving down the road, or in any situation where there is a little noise, you can't hear anything through the headphones. I get that they are protecting children's ears, and I appreciate that effort. But, they've gone so far with it that these headphones are nearly useless.

    I got these for my 4 year old and instantly knew I needed to get a GSP on them since they were for a 4 year old. Well to my surprise the manufacturer did not allow Best Buy to give a GSP on this product. Of course less than a week later they broke without any force. I was actually trying to extend the headphone size and they feel straight off the track and was unable to reconnect them.

    Useless in a Car

    Yes, they look cute and my daughter had to have them when we went shopping for headphones for her to watch DVDs in the car, but thank goodness we opened the package and tried them at the store's parking lot with the engine running because she could not hear a thing through them! The might be acceptable at home or for music on an MP3 player, but we marched right back into the store and had to return them.

    We got the Doc McStuffins head phones. They are very cute and my daughters like putting them on however the volume is SO soft (even when turned up ALL the way) that you can barely hear the movie. I understand it is to protect their ears, but if there is any background noise (etc. if you are in the car or on a plane) you can barely hear it.

    I purchased for my daughter. I wasn’t expecting much, however the sound was very low and it is not a very sturdy headset. However my kid likes it and I guess that’s all that matters just wish the sound was a little louder for her and it was more sturdy considering my daughter is a child and is not gentle with all of her belongings

    My 3 year old picked her favorite characters, I chose these for their built in volume limiting. When in use my daughter could barely hear anything on either of the first two settings, but she ended up falling asleep wearing them without a device attached at all! These make a great earmuff.

    I purchased the headphones for my 8 year old gg-grandson. I was disappointed that they didn't work for him. Definitely too small. I felt there should have been more info on the package about the size and age they would be useful for. The package said it was for youth. They are for much younger children than 8. I returned them.

    I got these for my 2.5 year old. While I knew these weren’t the best quality, I didn’t expect them to fall apart after two weeks of normal use. The white foam piece that covers the ear completely fell off and there is no way to put it back without gluing it on. Would not recommend

    I get it - It is a good buy if you want your kids to still be able to hear what goes on around them while they have these on. However, we were on a road trip and rented a smaller car - which was quite noisy - and my daughter was not able to hear sound from her device at all.

    My daughter loved the look and just had to have them. The sound reflected u get what u pay for. Had to try and almost max them to hear them over the airplane noise. I would not recommend these.

    The item is very cute but the volume is very low to a point where it is hard to hear on the car. I purchased this item for the little one to use on travel but the volume is so low that he could hardly hear. I tried returning it but Best Buy did not take the return.

    Bought these for my daughter and she can't hardly even hear anything watching a movie in the car. I know they are volume limited but they are way too low .Headphone plug has a flower on it that limits what you can plug it into because of the size of the flower. Not a good choice with these headphones.
