Headphones are a must-have accessory for today’s tweens and teens who are always listening to music from their playlists, songs from their favorite streaming service, YouTube videos, and streaming shows and movies on the go. Kids with ear bud cords hanging from their ears or donning headphones with cords disappearing into some unknown place are a common sight, along with requests for upgraded headphones as birthday and holiday gifts. Parents who wish to honor their child’s wishes but don’t want to break the bank should consider what’s truly important in a great pair of headphones.
Sound, style, comfort, connectivity, portability, and price are the six things I look for when considering a pair of headphones. I’m not opposed to splurging on a high-quality pair of headphones but there’s also no reason why you have to, since Motorola Pulse Escape headphones (ARV $39.99) have the features necessary for a great pair of headphones, including being budget friendly.
6 Features of a Great Pair of Headphones
I recently gave Emily, my 13-year-old, a pair of Motorola Pulse Escape headphones to try and even though she eyed them with expected teen skepticism, she slipped them on and immediately noted how cushy they felt. Over the course of the next few days she put them to the test, wearing them in her room to wirelessly stream her favorite shows from her laptop and plugged into her phone to listen to her playlist during a 2-hour flight for a weekend trip to Memphis. Here’s how the features of the Motorola Pulse Escape met my requirements and why you should consider them if your tween or teen is looking for a new pair of headphones.
You don’t have to be an audiophile to appreciate good sound. Kids know when their music sounds off and are quick to cast aside headphones that distort their favorite songs. The Motorola Pulse Escape delivers true sound thanks to powerful drivers that convert electrical signals into sound. While not noise cancelling enough to block out all the sounds of a plane’s engine on a flight, the noise isolation feature helps eliminate distracting background noise to provide superb sound.
No one wants to wear uncomfortable headphones that squeeze your head or feel uncomfortable on your ears. Motorola Pulse Escape feature over-ear cushions that are pillow soft and feel great against your ears even for a long period of time, so you can wear them for hours on end.
While some kids want ear buds because they’re easy to tuck in backpacks and pockets, over-the-ear headphones have become a fashion accessory for boys and girls alike. Headphones can be synonymous with personal style and for those fashion-conscious kids, Motorola Pulse Escape come in black, red, and white.
Motorola Pulse Escape let kids be unplugged thanks to Bluetooth 4.1 technology that has an impressive 60 ft. range for listening connected to music on your phone even when it’s tucked in a backpack or across the room. With these headphones, there’s no need to sacrifice listen time for being cord-free because the rechargeable battery provides 10 hours of wireless playtime and multiple device users can connect two devices to the Motorola Pulse Escape at the same time.
In the event that you need to call your child on their phone instead of texting them, they’ll appreciate that they don’t have to pull their phones out thanks to a built-in microphone that can be touch-controlled on the ear cups for hands-free calling. Kids can also have their personal assistant at their fingertips since Motorola Pulse Escape is compatible with Siri and Google Now.
Kids on the go need headphones that are lightweight and compact, and the Motorola Pulse Escape are compact. The lightweight folding design makes them perfect for slipping into a backpack or gym bag, and might even fit in a jacket pocket.
You would think with all these great features, the price of the Motorola Pulse Escape would be approaching triple digits. However, they’re affordably priced at $39.99.
