I'd like that case more if it didn't have Mario on it. The simple coin pattern alone would look a lot better. I also want a black 3ds xl like in the pic, hah.

They say Atari on them.


Seriously though, was wondering the same thing. I've come to decide though that more or less any licensed headphones are third rate, it is just a matter of how third rate they are.

The headphones are also in black for the same price and there are reviews for it.
Here's one of the reviews from the black Atari On-Ear Headphones

Great Headphones for the Average Person. 85/100
3.0/5.0 Stars

What's great about it: Style, Fit, 1 cord, feels durable, adjusts well
What's not so great: Audio quality (too much bass & a little muddy), Steel (not gold) plug, 32 ohms of impedance. I have been listening to this pair of headphones for about 3 hours now. I feel comfortable giving a fair review of the Gear4 / Atari On- Ear Headphones. I found that the experience is overall about a 85/100, for the average user, and about a 75/100 for more technical users. I say this because the average user will probably like the more bass-oriented sound, and the loud and large (40mm) speaker divers. However, the more experienced and technical users like myself will prefer a more balanced sound, with more of a dynamic sound range including fewer lows, more highs and better mids just to start. With the speakers being 20-20,000 Hz, I didn't expect the world, but I expected better than this. I paid $14.99 for them, which I can barely justify. They are marked at $29.99 MSRP, which I find to be overpriced (cough..cough..ATARI) If they had said "Gear 4" and not "Atari," would they be the same price? Anyway, the average user might disagree, as they are both comfortable and stylish for less than $30. I would change only a few things: 1) make the 3.5 mm connector gold-plated, 2) put in better sounding speakers (too muddy now) and 3) replace the cord with weaved fabric, not plastic. (They have weaved fabric on the actual headphones, but not for the cord.) Overall, decent, but wouldn't have spent any more than I did, because the bottom line: They are $15 headphones.

Value for Price
4.0
Sound Quality
3.0
Comfort
4.0
Durability
4.0

The XL is not that much bigger than the 3DS, but there would probably be a great amount of wiggle room that would make it ineffective for protecting it on the go.

Is it just me or is it impossible to find a decent 3DS XL case? I bought the CTA wallet from amazon, it feels like the system is twice the size with it in there. All I really wanted was a soft pouch to keep it from scratching in my pockets.

I'll give this one a shot; for $4, it's not the end of the world if I don't like it.

There are also smaller ear buds for the same price in both Red (http://www.bestbuy.c...atari&cp=1&lp=3) and White (http://www.bestbuy.c...atari&cp=1&lp=2) if you want to have the Atari design on ear buds instead.

I might bite on the black headphones to use with my iPad. I'm sure they are crap but they look cool and I hate ear buds.

It looks like the company that makes these also makes the angry birds ear buds along with other 'trend' type offerings. They usually sell at 50% off list so at 75% off list I guess they are a deal.

Now in true CAG fashion I need to by the system that I purchased an accessory for.

Mmmm wanted to bite on the headphones, but after getting the Pulse I just can't see why I need to spend more on getting another set, though it would be more for random use

Nice! We're going on a long road trip tomorrow and I was looking for a cheap set of headphones for my daughter's DVD player. I think the white ones will work just fine for her.

Won't quit using earbuds just yet. Probably haven't used actual cans on my head since '96.

This DS case through Club Nintendo fits my 3DS XL and doesn't look like a woman's wallet: https://club.nintend...ails/a/18506.do

That's enormously different than a protective case. Why not just link to a box of zipperloc bags?
