My Kids are Obsessed with Monster Headphones


If you have a kid with sensory issues who gets jumpy and overloaded at weird textures and loud sounds and just too much stimulation overall, you'll know what's going on in this picture.


I didn't ask the boy to vacuum and those aren't even technically those headphones you buy for noise cancelling but Imma tell you...the minute he put those Monster N-tune headphones on, he was a happy little camper.  He wasn't even listening to music!
 I mean, check out the lack of cord coming out of the bottom.  But still it was love at first hear.  Or don't-hear, as it was in this case.  What I mean is that these headphones do a great job of cancelling out background noise, so my kids have been fighting over them ever since they got here.  They honestly want to wear them all day while doing their school work.  Something tells me Santa already knows what he's bringing la Casa Borobia this Christmas.....

Of course I had to try them as actual headphones and it was amazing how low I could turn down the volume on the computer and still hear the sound clearly.  Downton Abbey season 4, I am READY FOR YOU!

I'll admit I was a little nervous when we first took them out of the box because they are really light weight.  With 5 kids in the house all. the. time, I thought for sure this would mean they'd be broken immediately.  Surprisingly and happily they still look pristine even though I have literally found them under piles of toys in the playroom, knotted up in a comforter, and tossed under the workbench in the utility room.  What these children have going on with these headphones I do not know, but they have passed the durability test with flying colors.

Speaking of colors: the cutest.  We tried the green (obviously) but when Cecilia saw the insert with all the colors shown she was all "Purple????  How can we get some purple ones?!?!"  Of course.

Anyway, the NTunes headphones from Monster are pretty much the star of our house right now.  I should seriously start using them to bribe people to do things for me....
