This year for Christmas we bought our eleven year old daughter Randi Skullcandy Headphones. She loves to listen to music and play games on her tablet and home computer. We have bought Randi a lot of headphones and ear buds in the past. For one reason or another they never seem to last very long. Whether it be that they are made cheaply made or they are not comfortable for her. We went to Radio shack looking for something and we spotted these. She loves them they are comfortable, they control the noise great. The Best part is that they have held up. I would recommend these to anyone that wears headphones a lot.
