Philips SHK1030 ear pads made of soft material resembling a structure ordinary foam rubber, but with much higher parameters wear resistance.

Very often in the comments on this headset you can find complaining of a faint, quiet sound, annoying more elders, rather than small users. The reason for this phenomenon: sensitivity to children’s hearing due to physiological characteristics of age.

For example, opportunities wireless connection via Bluetooth as a second option connection, because the wired port is in a fuss or inattentive (talking about children) may be damaged. Yes, indirect attractiveness by adding cartoon themes manufacturers were able to provide, but some technical solutions could be developed in more interesting directions.
