My children have no idea how lucky they are.
I realise this will make me sound incredibly old, but when I was little we only had a few hours of children’s television each day. Now my children have access to pretty much anything they want to watch, at any time of the day.
I sometimes wonder how my parents did it. How they coped without having something to plop us down in front of, to keep us entertained when they needed a few minutes peace.
Other times though I think they had it good. They didn’t have to listen to the absolute nonsense that my children like to watch on YouTube.
Lucky for me though, I don’t always have to listen to it either because we have some brilliant kids’ headphones for them to pop on.
We were sent a pair of Junior Jams headphones from Puro sound labs to test out a few weeks ago and we have well and truly put them through their paces.
The headphones come in a lovely, sturdy box that lets you know straight away that these are a great quality item.
One thing I really like about these is that they don’t look childish.
They’re designed specifically for children but they’re still cool and quite classic looking, so they should last as the children get older.
Inside the box is a great little storage case for the headphones.
It’s quite rigid rather than soft, so it feels like it will really protect the headphones if we take them away with us somewhere. I also love that we can put them away in the case at home when they’re not being used, so I don’t worry about them being accidentally sat on!
The headphones themselves sort of collapse and fold in on themselves so you can fit them into the carry case.
I love this space-saving idea, and it makes the headphones really convenient to take places with you without them taking up too much space in your bag.
Once you get the Junior Jams out of the case it’s really easy to click the ear cups into the right place. And they feel lovely and sturdy once they’re up.
Nerys has worn these quite a bit since we’ve had them and says they’re really comfortable to use. She loves the padded ear cushions which are much softer than the old set of headphones that Rhys sometimes uses.
As for Rhys, he’s really amused by how much sound these block from the room when you have them on.
Every time he wears them he comments on how it sounds like you’re underwater. I think this is amazing; considering these are children’s headphones, the quality is just as good as an adult pair. Puro Sound Labs have made sure that these Junior Jam headphones have brilliant sound quality, as well as isolating 87% of ambient noise.
One thing I love about these headphones is that they’re wireless. So I’m not worried about wires getting tangled up and the children love that they can roam about the room while still listening to their videos.
They were really easy to link up to our devices over bluetooth, it only took a few minutes and we were up and running.
The batteries in these should last for up to 22 hours of use, and we’ve not had to charge them yet.
When they do run out you can recharge them with the usb cable that comes with them, or use the audio cable to turn them into wired headphones. What’s really cool is that if you have 2 pairs of these you can use daisy chain technology (and the cable supplied) to link them together so 2 people can listen to the same thing at the same time.
We’ve all been really impressed with the Junior Jams headphones.
The children love how comfortable they are and the fact that they can move around while wearing them without worrying about being attached to anything.
I love the fact that they’re such amazing quality, they are absolutely built to last. I also really like the fact that they volume level is limited on them, so I don’t worry about damage to my children’s hearing.
And on top of all that, they look good too. I really can see the children still using these for years to come, because they’re not something they’ll grow out of any time soon.
