This headset quickly became his favourite and he uses it whenever he listens to music or watches a movie.

      This is a great product and I would recommend it as a present to your son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter, niece or nephew. You have a variety of colours to choose from.

      Super headphones for kids

      My 4 year old niece just got her first iPad and sister started complaining, that she already has headaches from the children games playing loud through the whole flat. So I decided to by my little niece Audrey her first headphones. On Amazon I came across these Groov-e GV590PBB headphones. The blue/black colour combination fits perfectly to my nieces black iPad. The price is very low as well, they cost only £9.50 and what was even more amazing - I received them the very next day. Before I passed them on my niece I did some testing myself.
      The earphones have a great design for a kid, they are very perky. You can get them in other colour combination as well - if your daughter is more girly, you can get them for example in pink/white combination as well.
      They are a little bit small for me (but could wear them) however fit very well on my nieces head (how I later found out). They are very padded around the ears and therefore are very comfortable to wear. They plug in the headphone socket very easily. The sound quality is not excellent but is reasonably good for kids, who are just playing games on tablet or watching animated movies.
      My niece absolutely adores these headphones and does not want to use her iPad without them any more!
      I definitely recommend these headphones, it is a perfect gift for any kid. They look adorable, it will not ruin your wallet and the sound is good.

      I didn't really expect too much when I ordered these headphones for my daughter (mainly to use with her portable DVD player), but I've been pleasantly surprised. They fit my 3 year olds head perfectly and somehow even fit my head! It's really easy to adjust the size (even for little ones) and they are very padded around the ears, and therefore comfortable to wear. They block outside noise well and the sound quality seems very good. They plug into all earphone/headphone sockets without any fuss and to top it all - they look absolutely adorable! I wasn't too sure if my daughter would like the idea of wearing headphones but I can't seem to remove them from her head nowadays! Priced at less than £10.00, these headphones are a total bargain and I highly recommend them.

      Stylish children's headphones but internal wiring not strong enough for use by young children

      Last Christmas I purchased portable DVD players for my oldest sons and needed headphones to go with them. For my younger son (aged five at the time) I chose these fun 'DJ style' headphones under the Groov-e brand name as his first pair of headphones. I paid just over £9 for the set last year from Amazon and they are currently available for around the same price. These headphones come in a range of colours to suit both boys and girls and individual tastes with this particular model (GV590PBB) being a bright and attractive shade of blue.

      These lightweight headphones are designed to be used by children aged three and over. At five, my smaller than average son was able to wear these on the very lowest setting but there is plenty of room to expand to accommodate much older children. At a push, these will stretch to fit an adult sized head but the clumpy pads (complete with a printed silver DJ logo) and the bold colouring will probably appeal more to young child than adult tastes. Expanding the headphones is very straightforward and requires little physical effort to adjust them to an appropriate secure and comfortable fitting.

      The band section is particularly thin; considerably thinner than the JVC branded kids' headphones that we have subsequently replaced these with. Despite its thin size, the band is made from strong plastic and feels pretty strong and flexible. The main structure of the headphones are sturdy enough to withstand rough handling from the target age group and are flexible enough to be pulled on and off regularly without visible damage to the main frame.

      The padded ear sections appear quite large in comparison to the thin frame but are certainly well padded and securely attached. The black and blue colour scheme used on the pads and frame contrasts nicely and gives this a stylish appearance. The soft pads remain securely in place without slipping or causing any discomfort for my son.

      There are actually two different cord lengths recorded on the Amazon listing for this product. Despite the confusion, this set has a cord of 1.2 metres in length, rather than the 2 metres also mentioned in the description. I find this length adequate for most of my son's needs and was certainly long enough to allow him to connect this to an in-car DVD player and sit back comfortably in his car seat. There is only a single lead, connecting to just one of the sides which does help to reduce any twisting and tangling of leads during or after use. The jack fitting is a standard 3.5mm size which fits most devices.

      The sound and tone quality of these headphones was perfectly adequate when listening to films, games or music although there is no means of adjusting the volume other than via the device being used. As a parent, I was appreciative that these contact the sound well and there is no annoying sound 'leakage' to annoy other parties.

      Despite these positive attributes, we have unfortunately had to replace this set of headphones after sporadic use for around six or seven months. My son started to complain that he could not get the headphones to work when connected and it soon became clear that there was an issue with the connection. There are no visible signs of damage to the wiring or the jack but there must be some internal damage. With some jiggling and careful repositioning, it is still possible to get these headphones to work and release sound but due to a loose connection, the sound will cut out and stop working altogether if the headphones or wire are moved slightly. Clearly, this makes the set pretty unusable and we have had to replace them with another brand.

      These were not an expensive brand, at under £10, but I had hoped that they would last longer than they actually have done, especially as my son's usage petered off during the year. I do think they look good and fit comfortably but I am reluctant to recommend them as the internal wiring does not appear strong enough to withstand a typical child's treatment.
