My daughter use to go through headphones constantly. One side of the headphones would stop working or the headphone would snap off the from headpiece. It was real frustrating. Since I bought her these skull candy headphones, she has had no issues. It's so great to have durable headphones for once. While she's at shcool I often wear them. They are secure against my ears and definitely block out any background noise. They are comfortable and the headphone is thick enough that it sets softly on your head and doesn't attempt to fall off everytime you move. When I first gave them to my daughter she immediately fell in love with the design of them. She's unique and creative and now has 4 different sets of them that the she coordinates with her outfits. She makes sure she always has a pair within her grasps at all time. Whether at school, in the car, or at home, she always has a pair on. They work great on any electronic device you use them with.
