The best headphones for kids
These devices have great sound and look good too
These excellent portable headphones fold up neatly into their cloth carry bag, and feel really durable without seeming bulky. Plus the sound is warm and deep.
BuddyPhones School+ Headphones
A fantastic option for home school – with a mic that is great at cancelling out background noise – these are really light (90g), well made, and comfortably padded.
