Our take on the Alpine SHS-N106

by Alexander Hrabe


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.

Great headphones, best I have bought yet.
Shut off automatically to save batteries when kids leave on. Fold up & store nicely. Sound is very clear.
