I am in search of headphones for my 3 year old for a listening program. Recommended headphone is Akg K99 though am concerned about fit. Wondering if there are other comparable headphones out there in similar price range more specific for children?

Important considerations:
- frequency response of at least 20,000Hz
- driver size 40-50mm
- power handling capacity 1000mW (Closed style minimum) or 500mW (open style minimum; 750mW ideal)

Thanks for helping out a newbie!

You're going to potentially pump a full watt (1000 mW) to a 3 year old? Is this a child you don't want hearing any longer?

I recommend Koss Porta Pro Classic.    Comfortable for all head sizes and limited lifetime warranty.   Collapsible design and inexpensive.
