Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top for Gamer A great idea also high-quality headphones for children. It fits our 6 year old perfectly. It doesn't press or wobble. The material is really child-friendly. Since he flew across the room a few times. The micro function is of course great for our adolescents so they can constantly talk while playing. We have already reordered it. Top satisfied

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable headphones The headphones are comfortable but the anc (active noise cancelling) function does not work. I have since read other reviews saying the same thing so do not think it is a fault with just our pair. Very misleading to say they are noose cancelling headphones as that is why I paid the higher price for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolut Empfehlenswert Das Design, die Verpackung und die Verarbeitung sind wir gewohnt hochwertig. Die Kopfhörer waren angenehm zu tragen. Die Polsterung der Ohren ist perfekt für kleine Kinderohren und wird komplett umfasst, toll fanden wir auch das der Kopfbügel oben wo er aufliegt ein zusätzliches Poster hat was den tragekomfort deutlich erhöhte. Ausengeräusche werden zum Großteil durch das Noise-Cancelling unterdrückt, sodass die Konzentration auf die eigentliche Beschäftigung mit den Kopfhörer geblieben ist. Die Akkulaufzeit beträgt zwischen 20-30 Stunden jenachdem welche Einstellung am Kopfhörer an sind, das aufladen geht mit 2 Stunden auch sehr schnell. Die Kopfhörer können dank abnehmbaren Audiokabel sowohl mit als auch ohne dieses benutzt werden, sofern eine Bluetooth Verbindung zu einen anderen Gerät vorhanden ist mit den sich der Kopfhörer verbinden kann. Das integrierte Mikrofon ist praktisch bei Videochatt und Telefonaten. Uns haben diese Kopfhörer voll und ganz überzeugt und unsere Tochter ist sehr zufrieden damit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great first headphones Our daughter wears the headphones mainly for listening to audio books. And that is also possible for hours. The wearing comfort is great. Even with pigtails, the headphones fit without exerting uncomfortable pressure. The headphones also don't adjust themselves if you move. Folding the headphones almost completely together for transport is a great way to stow them in the backpack and leave enough space for other devices. The ANC is not designed in such a way that you no longer notice anything. The ambient noise is slightly muffled. Our daughter likes that very much, because she doesn't notice the raving / screaming of the siblings so much and can concentrate better on her audio book. If the ANC were to be significantly stronger, the function in everyday life would certainly not be optimal. You wouldn't notice too much. What it lacks, however, is the ability to adjust the volume directly on the headphones. You can turn ANC on / off, start the voice assistant or turn the headphones on / off. But unfortunately there is no volume adjustment. This must be done via the connected device. A charging cable with USB-A connection is included. A cable is also included to connect the headphones directly to a device without being connected via BT. The battery life is completely sufficient, unless you are listening to BT 24/7. Switching off the ANC extends the runtime a little more. The battery can also be recharged relatively quickly. And if necessary, there is still the headphone cable so that you can continue listening without a BT connection. All in all, a great headphone for children and that for less than € 100 at an acceptable price.
