headphones for 7 year old sister

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hey, lookin to get my lil sis some phones. Looking for something decently sturdy, light, and that will stay on her tiny head.

I found some HD201s for $18



Those seem like what I'm looking for, does anyone have any other suggestions or even some first hand experience with headphones for children?


edit: Looking for a rather inexpensive set, let's say under $30.

ksc75 with parts express headband <-- my choice since its around 20-25usd including the headband and it sounds great as well

She might like the look (and sound) of the Philips Downtown.  Apparently they are quite lightweight and comfortable.   Take a look at Tyll's write-up here: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/philips-citiscape-downtown  


For example, white is about $55 and Purple about  $60 over on Amazon.  Have a feeling that a 7 year old would enjoy either color -- perhaps especially the purple  :-)

Thanks for the suggestions, the ksc75 are a possibility.

The other headphones looks good, especially the downtown.. but the cost is a bit high. Sorry, I forgot to mention I want to find something rather inexpensive. If she takes care of them maybe I'll get her some downtowns or something later.

The $10 ones on the Target rack will do just fine.

If you're not in a hurry... the Sennheiser HD428 refurbs can be found for anywhere from $23-25 @ vminnovations whenever they have a sale. The latest iteration two weeks ago:

Koss UR-22v would be perfect. They're $18 at any Wal-Mart and unlike most $20 headphones, they're quite good.

You can even upgrade them with Pearstone Velour pads later!


I prefer them to the UR-40 and UR-20.
