Love the headphones, my son hasn't taken them off since we got the order which is great because we have been stuck in a hospital 24/7 while he undergoes treatment.
These are our third pair of Amazon basics headphones but the only one made specifically for kids. The quality is decent, on par with other headphones at this price point. The sound is good, better than I expected it to be. The best thing about them to me is the volume limits, I don't have to worry about the kids damaging their hearing while using these.

This model is definitely for young kids only. The ear pieces are very small, maybe 2" across. We have seven kids and everyone passed them around to try on. They look comically small on our middle school and older elementary age kids. They're on the small side but workable for our younger elementary kids. Who they're just right on are our 2 and 3 year olds. Both the band and ear cups fit just right and they seem comfortable for them to wear.

This pair of headphones is a good option for parents looking for headphones for a not yet school age child. The quality is good and the Amazon basics products, in my experience, perform well. They're a nice choice for very young children who just need something for use at home or in the car and whose parents prefer kids headphones with volume limits. For parents shopping for older, school age kids, the base model over the ear Amazon basics headphones are a good option. They're slightly less expensive than this set but come in black only and have fit our kids starting at age 4 despite not being marketed specially for children.
Useless. Bought these headphones for my daughter to use with her tablet on airplanes, but they're so weak that her games were totally inaudible.
Love the volume limiting function as it's used by my kids. Sound quality is tinny and frankly quite awful, but then it has held up to the rough and tumble of school use and it gets the job done!
Nice size for my toddler and I like the volume restriction, but my complaint is that the cord that runs through the headset is coming lose and hanging out of the top and I have to shove it back constantly.
We bought this for my two-year-old for our international flight and they worked great! She could watch movies on her tablet without disturbing people. They are cute and soft and fit her head great!
We got our grand daughter a kid's Kindle Fire for Christmas and getting these volume limited headphones was a smart investment. They fit her really well and will adjust with her as she grows. She loves them so much she likes to wear them walking around the house - even when she's not playing on the Fire! It gives us peace of mind that she can't blow out her delicate little ears on accident. She loves the bright colors and grown-up hardware.
I got these for my 4th grade homeschooler. She absolutely loves them. The pair she had before this lasted a long time but they were really beat up and the wires on the side were the only reason they were still together. I like that these don't have the wires exposed. They are fully encased in the plastic. These are also very easily adjustable. They fit my 20 month old, my 5 year old, my 9 year old, and myself easily. The bright colors also make them very visible so they are easy to find in a room filled with toys.
Got these for plane travel with the kiddos. Love them. Adjust nicely to stay on their heads. Don't get too loud, but aren't too quiet to hear over the plane noise. My kids think they are pretty cool for having their own headphones.
These are allowing way too much volume. My kid was 4 feet away and I could hear what he was listening to. Skip it. Go to a model suggested by wirecutter.
