I am highly impressed with these headphones, including the sound. I read reviews stating the sound quality to be not so great, but these are actually really loud for a 5 and 8 year old who when wearing cannot hear anything I say, and always speak really loud. The lights make for the perfect headphones and the blinking factor is really special. They have held up so far, the quality of material is also great, and my daughters are very careful with these. I do feel I will be ordering another pair soon because my youngest super careful daughter decided today to spray perfume on them so they smell great, but they have not blown or anything.
