My two boys (8 & 9 yrs old) are getting into listening to music and the like. I've sourced some used iPods for them and now want to find some decent 'phones to go with. I wanted to know what users here would suggest (or tell me to avoid).
I mentioned closed 'phones in the title since they often like to listen to books on tape at bedtime and I don't want to referee arguments over someone's volume being too loud.
I would like them to experience decent sound quality, but if I had to choose, I'd pick a rugged build over audiophile SQ. These 'phones will be abused. Cords will be yanked and chewed on. The 'phones will be sat on, dropped, farted on... you name it. I need "Headphones for Honey Badgers."
That being said, I don't want to drop a lot of cash on these either...
I'm not particularly concerned that these phones be efficiently driven by an iPod. They don't need to be listening to anything loud, period. That's what their teen rebellion years will be for... I don't want them to have earbuds for the same reason (besides, earbuds would be easily destroyed or lost).
Thanks in advance!
