With August here, it’s inevitable that back to school season is just around the corner! With endless shopping lists of school supplies, trips to the mall for the latest sneakers and the daily ritual of packing lunches upon us once again, it’s no surprise that kids everywhere are already dreading the arrival of fall.
If your children have been on their best behaviour this summer, why not reward them with a new pair of headphones? Sure, you may be sick of hearing the melodies of One Direction and Katy Perry on repeat if your son or daughter happens to be a fan- which also gives her a fabulous reason to ask for a stylish new pair to proudly display to adoring classmates.
This fall, retailer Experience Headphones is rolling out their Back to School Headphone Guide with a cool array of styles. If you’re looking for a great deal and back-to-school savings, the Experience Headphones Advantage offers free shipping and a free 365-day return (across Canada).
Here’s a closer look at their cool and colourful collection:
Urbanears: If your child happens to be a trendsetter who’s always ahead of the curve, Urbanears headphones might be the perfect autumn accessory. Available in three hot shades (a bright green Julep), dazzling yellow Citrus and smooth blue Forget-Me-Not, these headphones come in three styles. Zinken is over-ear, while Plattan are sleek and portable and Medis are an in-ear solution perfect for the active kid. Taylor Swift herself has been spotted wearing these, in fact, and who would know more about appreciating your tunes than a songstress like T-Swift?
LSTN: Approved by rocker Dave Grohl and Royals diva Lorde, these retro-inspired headphones are made out of wood, such as Beech, Cherry, Ebony and Zebra. The Troubadour style is over-ear, while Fillmore is on-ear and Bowery is in-ear. These are a fantastic back-to-school gift for the aspiring rock star in your family.
Frends: If your daughter is a fashionista in training, why not treat her to these diva-ready headphones? With a Taylor over-ear set which is created with leather and dazzling metal caps, a chic on-ear Layla pair, and the Ella in-ear headphones which almost look like jewelry, all eyes will be on her- and on her ears! Selena Gomez has been spotted wearing a pair of Frends herself.
Skullcandy Women’s Line: Send your edgy music lover off to class in style with these amazing headphones. With a softly padded Knockout On-Ear pair which comes in three colours and a Bombshell in-ear pair, these are a great pick for a girl who loves bright colours and bold design.
Marshall: Guitar amp experts Marshall created a range of headphones last year which are made with their patented leather and ready for that must-have explosion of pumping beats and powerful rhythms. Whether your kid prefers the over-ear Monitor, on-ear Major, or in-ear Minor style, the Marshall range has something for everyone.
Yurbuds: Are you sick of replacing missing or forgotten headphones for a forgetful son or daughter? Try Yurbuds if you’re looking for a quick fix! The Inspire Limited, Inspire Venture and Inspire Pro for Women styles are all in-ear headphones which are specially designed to stay in place, even if your kid happens to be constantly on the move.
Street by 50: Designed by rapper 50 Cent, these hardcore on-ear headphones are meant to give music fanatics the ultimate listening experience. They’ve been spotted on Jennifer Hudson, rapper Kendrick Lamar and Carrie Underwood. With a rainbow of colours (black, white, pink, green, blue, teal, orange and red) to choose from, there’s a shade for everyone.
