Editor's Review

LeapPods Max engage kids in an immersive audio experience. Of course, kids can use these headphones to listen to music, but they can also have a dance party, go on adventures, and much more thanks to built-in audio content.

Before you play, you’ll need to charge the headphones using the included micro-USB cable. It takes between two to four hours for a full charge. You can also adjust the headphones to ensure a comfortable fit. Then, you’re ready to play. Use the dial on the right earpiece to choose between one of six play modes. 

There are 10 songs to dance to in Dance Party mode. Explore the 14-page Adventure Passport booklet and six adventures in Adventures mode. Listen to 10 songs in Learning Songs mode. Take on eight physical challenges in Challenges mode. Get ready for naptime or bedtime with the 10 songs in Quiet Time mode. And Instrumentals mode plays 10 instrumental songs.

You can also pair the headphones to a Bluetooth device so that kids can listen to their favorite music or podcasts. The headphones also come with a 3.5mm audio cable so you can connect them to another device with a 3.5mm audio port.

Kids can easily use the play/pause button on the right earpiece to start or stop a track, press the next button or back button to change tracks, and press the plus or minus signs to adjust the volume.

The over-ear design provides comfort and sound isolation for great sound quality that keeps volume levels safe for kids.

Should I get it?

These headphones engage kids in screen-free fun. We like that there are six different activity modes that encourage everything from imaginative play and physical activity to rest and relaxation. And kids will also like that they can listen to their favorite music through these headphones thanks to a simple Bluetooth connection. They are comfortable for kids to wear, they are easy for kids to use, and they keep kids engaged in a lot of play.
