If there's one thing we have in spades in this house, it's children. Specifically, children doing homework, as pictured here:
Because there are so many children, and so much homework is needed to be done online, we ended up purchasing a couple of used, very basic computers, just to avoid the dreaded "I need the computer more than you do!" argument that seems to occur every day. It's always an argument – is this one's math more important than this one's history, or does this one's PowerPoint take precedence over that one's Edmodo?
And then when you throw in the fact that one of them is an opera student and needs to listen to music for homework, three of them play instruments and need to listen to music for homework, and everyone likes to listen to music when they do homework – but none of them like the same music – well, you can see that homework becomes a very loud time in my house.
Enter the mandatory Use of Headphones Rule when you do homework.
Everyone has a device that came with headphones – but those headphones have long disappeared. I've purchased many a cheapo $5 set from the grocery store, but they fall apart as soon as someone sneezes. I have a pair of very expensive headphones, and everyone tries like crazy to borrow them, but they are practically super glued to my hip. No one is getting my gear. No one.
Everyone needs headphones. No one can find headphones, and the ones we have, don't last. I can't afford super spendy ones for all of the kids.
What's a girl to do?
I was provided with a set of these headphones to try out, and as you can see, I handed them to one of my shorties. I figured that's the easiest way to find out if they were durable, long-lasting, and, let's face it - any good with the sound system – is to give it to one of the people who is the very hardest on headphones.
Everyone fought over the Monster headphones. Everyone wanted to use these headphones, for the clarity of sound, the crispness of the bass, and, just being real here – how cool they look. They are definitely higher on the cool factor then earbuds. They also stood the test of time with my shorties, who could - and can - be rough on anything.
We were super pleased with these headphones. Want to try a pair for your very own shorties, or for yourself – I won't tell anyone! To win your very own pair of N-Tune headphones (valued at $150), read all about the Monsters here and let me know in the comments which color you prefer. The comments on this post will be aggregated with the comments on the posts from the other bloggers participating in this review, and 25 pairs will be given away.
Just in time for the holidays. See what I did there?
