The sound was amazing! They are so comfy and cool!
Kids enjoyed the build and let me know they sound good too. Nice to have a build that has a longer term use beyond the explore and build day.
My son loved it! The only thing I would change is the fit. It was too tight for my son's head and some of the wooden parts were hard to fit into the plastic parts. Besides that, it's an amazing product with lots of education in it.
