Hi there,

I would like to buy a pair of bluetooth headphones for my daughter (over the ear or on-ear).  Budget is about £60 max.  Ear buds aren't an option as I know she would lose them.

Have been looking at JBL and Sony but just not sure.  Need something fairly robust and comfy please.  Blue or black would be fine. 

Thanks in advance.

    Is it needed urgently? I really think with headphones it's better to try them on in-store. Both the fit and the sound are subjective - reviews are one thing but everyone likes something different (and listens to different things).

    The op said ear buds aren't an option. 
    I agree with jonnygee2 that trying them for fit, comfort, style and sound is the best option.

    I am used to Lindy BNX-60. Bluetooth, noise-cancelling, very acceptable sonic performance, and all for a very affordable price. Meanwhile, I agree that better is to try headphones on in-store for fit, comfort, sound.

    The cheepos from e bay actually are quite good, less than £15, why not try and see if they suit. Same old problem, get too warm quickly in warm weather.

    I got these JBL headphones recently:

    They are pretty good - much more robust than my old ones which broke.   The main thing that could be improved is that noise is too easily transmitted over the shell of the earpieces, particularly in corded mode.
