Let me preface this by stating I'm not an audiophile, so please bear with me while I try to describe what I'm looking for...there's probably a super-basic solution for me, I'm just not aware yet.
My 8 year old daughter has recently taken up playing drums (which by the way is adorable), and she needs to be able to play along with some music. When she plays, I insist on her wearing hearing protection. Her little ears aren't good for in-ear plugs, so she wears some of my bulky ear protection intended for shooting.
What I'm looking for is a pair of good (not great) headphones that provide maximum db reduction to her loud drums. I get awfully confused when looking through the descriptions regarding "noise cancelling" phones, since in my world of shooting, that is a description of actively cutting amplified sound when noise over a certain db is sensed.
Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
