At first look, the brand new JuniorJams do not appear too completely different from the BT2200, Puro Sound’s final set of wi-fi Bluetooth headphones designed for youthful ears. Like these earlier headphones, the JuniorJams retain the 85-decibel quantity output limitation, so it is all however inconceivable for teenagers to crank their music to harmful ranges. The brand new fashions additionally up the battery life to 22 hours (from the BT2200’s 18).
Moreover, the JuniorJams provide what Puro calls “daisy-chain music sharing.” Tether two JuniorJams along with an included USB cable, and two individuals can hearken to the identical wi-fi (or wired) music supply. We tried it, and labored like a attraction. The 42-inch cable size will make for shut quarters throughout mutual listening, however within the anticipated atmosphere — say, the backseat of a automotive — that is most likely the state of affairs anyway.
Whereas the JuniorJams are sized for teenagers’ heads, the expandable headband lets them work for grownup noggins too (albeit considerably snugly). The earcups fold flat for simple journey within the included arduous case, too.
Better of all, the Junior Jams are reasonably priced, at the least so far as title model Bluetooth headphones are involved. They retail for $80, although they’re at the moment discounted to $70 on Amazon, the place they’re instantly out there in 5 colours. They will hit Amazon UK subsequent week for £70. Aussie listeners will discover them for AU$105 in early 2018.
