At first, when I unpacked this headset I had this strong feeling of disappointment. The plug in cable is very thin (that slashed a star for durability concerns), and kids can be rough and uncaring, may break them easily. However, as I started listening to different music genres, I started to love the way they sound, not bad at all. Then I noticed that the ears would light up too! They can be set to stay lit or flash on and off. Nice headset, but the thin cables are deal breakers for me.
