Loved. Loved. Loved!

I purchased the 1" black band with a rhinestone cross added. My seven year old daughter loves it.

1. How does the band feel compared to the normal bands?
*I feel that it is just as stretchy as the other bands I purchased, both the 1" ribbon style and the thinner reflective elastic.
*The silicone backing made the band feel stronger.
*It must have been more comfortable than the other bands. She has worn it longer than the other bands.

2. Do you notice the same amount of slipping with the regular band?

Absolutely not. The 1" band with silicone had noticeably less slipping than the 1" ribbon (multicolor) style. My daughter also felt very secure that this band would not slip off, therefore, she was willing to do more stuff with it on.

3. Other than the physical texture of the band, what do you notice different about wearing it compared to the normal bands?

Like I said, my daughter is more secure about it staying on. It also seems like she doesn't mess with it as much as the other bands (once it's in place she leaves it alone).

4. What other thoughts/comments do you have about the band as a whole?

The band with Silicone Backing was a little more difficult to get on and off, however, that is kinda the point.
I also wanted to mention that our Audiologist loved the band so much she took my daughter around the clinic showing it off talking about how much better it was.

5. What do you like

I like that it stays in place so much better that my daughter can tell the difference and even brings it up after she wears the others. I also love that it is 1 inch.

6. Improvements

No improvement. My only suggestion would be more 1" options.

    It stays on her head!

    My 1 year old daughter just got a hearing aid, so this is our first headband to try other than the one which came with her hearing aid.

    Compared to the coclear band, it is a little less stretchy, but seems just as strong and durable.

    It stays in place very well! Her coclear band was constantly sliding down her forehead and needs readjusted a bajillion times a day, which makes her hair look crazy. The silicone- backed headband has slid forward a little bit, but she’s not messing with it, which is great!

    I bought the wider 1 inch band, bi-lateral. Having large slide adjusters on top and bottom is a lot for such a little head (her head is small for her age too). The wider band is harder to adjust since it bunches up going though the o-ring. I think the big black slider looks very cool on top of her head. It seems like a big slider on the back of her head would be uncomfortable, but she doesn’t seem to mind. It looks great on her 3 year old sister. I like it! But I probably wouldn’t recommend getting the 1 inch band for a bilateral child under 2 years old.

    I love that it stays in place, and seems very comfortable.

    I was a little disappointed that the purple headband was sewn with black thread rather than matching thread. Although that’s only noticeable up-close, when I’m putting her headband on.

      Great Band!

      1. How does the band feel compared to the normal bands?

      Stretch - Less stretchy
      Strength - Great Strength
      Comfort - Just as comfortable

      2. Do you notice the same amount of slipping with the velvet band?

      I feel that with the silicone band, it it certainly stays on my daughters head much better than the velvet band.

      3. Other than the physical texture of the band, what do you notice that is different about wearing it compared to the normal bands?

      My daughter seems to take it off less frequently compared to the other bands as she cannot slip it off as easy, which is a positive for us!

      4. What other thoughts/comments do you have about the band as a whole?

      A little harder to get this one on initially as she has lots of hair so it doesn't slip right over, but we are ok with that.

      5. What do you like

      Same durability and comfort as other bands with less slipping.

      6. Improvements

      none

        Great for infants

        I was hesitant to purchase a silicone band as my son has longer hair and I didn't want it pulling. Here are my thoughts on this softband:

        1. How does the band feel compared to the normal bands?

        Maybe a little less stretchy than our other band. Feels strong and durable.

        2. Do you notice the same amount of slipping with the band?

        There is less slipping and stays in place high on his little almost bald forehead

        3. Other than the physical texture of the band, what do you notice that is different about wearing it compared to the normal bands?

        difficult to adjust definitely need 2 hands and some patience

        4. What other thoughts/comments do you have about the band as a whole?

        would buy this band again, wish it came in prints

        5. What do you like?

        I like that it doesn't move on his head as easily and can wear it in more positions because of this

        6. Improvements?

        More colors and prints please

          Silicone for the win!

          I was hesitant to purchase a silicone band as my son has longer hair and I didn't want it pulling. Here are my thoughts on this softband:

          1. How does the band feel compared to the normal bands?

          The silicone band feels comparable to the standard band. There's perhaps a bit less stretch, but that's not a bad thing. My son seems to think that it's just as comfortable, even with his long hair! I was concerned he'd complain that his hair was being pulled, but he's not indicated anything like that. It feel quite strong and durable.

          2. Do you notice the same amount of slipping with the velvet band?

          There is indeed less slipping and, as such, is our preferred band of the two.

          3. Other than the physical texture of the band, what do you notice that is different about wearing it compared to the normal bands?

          It's more difficult to adjust on the fly. The silicone doesn't slip through the o-ring as easily. However, on the flip side, I can see that this could be a potential benefit.

          4. What other thoughts/comments do you have about the band as a whole?

          It's our preferred band of the two we have due to the non-slip nature. I would buy this band again.

          5. What do you like?

          I like that the silicone isn't too thick and, therefore, doesn't add too much bulk to the band.

          6. Improvements?

          I cannot think of any.
