Buying a good pair of headphones for a girl can feel overwhelming – will they fit her smaller frame, are they durable, will she like the style. Don’t worry we’re here to help.
First, we found out what characteristics girls like for their headphones to have. Then, we researched today’s most popular designs and brands, and picked several headphones that would work best for girls. Finally, we put all of that information into this handy easy-to-read format to help you quickly decide which headphones would be most suitable.
Things to Consider
- Size. Girls are naturally smaller than men; this especially includes their ears and head. Big bulky headphones tend to fall off, leak sound, and are just plain uncomfortable. Girls will appreciate a smaller device that better fits their frame.
- Durability. Girls are every bit as active and on-the-go as men and boys so they need a set of headphones that will last.
- Style. No two girls are the same; while one may like soft muted colors another may enjoy bold geometric patterns. They appreciate products that help them express that individuality.
