With all the modern in-car conveniences these days, one might wonder if the Griswalds would have gotten into so much trouble on their family vacations. The SHS-N106 headphones from Alpine are a perfect example of how smooth today's road trips can be. These single-source wireless headphones allow the kids in the backseat to be tuned into your onboard entertainment system without any distraction to you in the driver seat. No threat of tangled wires here.

These headphones feature a volume dial and power switch built into the ear cup, so Rusty and Audrey can control their own media experience. The headphones even fold flat for easy storage. And if, by chance, Rusty forgets to turn off his headphones, the auto shut-off mode will preserve their battery life.

Good Headphones/purchase

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This purchase was exactly what it was supposed to be: uneventful. The product works as advertised. It was shipped and delivered as requested. I inserted the batteries, and it worked. I wish all my purchases were as easy. I had purchased a previous model, NHS-103, two years prior, and it is still working, too.

Pros: Easy! I inserted the batteries and gave it to my daughter to use.

Cons: none

Great product
