Entry into high school has been rough. Since September, my daughter has had so much schoolwork that she spends several hours during the day, every day, stuck behind the computer. Listening to music helps her pass the time as she finishes up her assignments. That means that, at almost any given moment, we can glance over the corner of the sofa and see Munchkin behind her laptop with headphones on. Thanks to the Cat Ear Headphones from Brookstone that arrived last week, that view now looks like this.
Cat Ear Headphones from Brookstone Review
Bwahaha! Aren’t they funny?! Not only are the Cat Ear Headphones completely adorable but they have cool features that teenagers will love. These over the ear headphones have tons of cushioning to reduce outside noise, include a boom mic for gaming, the USB batteries are rechargeable via mini USB, and everything comes in a padded case. If your teen is with friends, she can take the headphones off and turn on the external speakers so they can rock out together.
Sound through the headphones is crisp with an even bass. For the audiophiles out there, you might be interested in the audio specifications for this accessory. The headphone audio is comprised of 20Hz-20KHz frequency response, 32 Ohm impedance, and 40mm drivers. The speaker audio has 200Hz-18KHz frequency response, 4 Ohm impedance, and 32mm drivers. I, personally, have no idea what that means but my tech savvy hubby says that the headphones have a pretty good sound range. 😀
Cat Ear Headphones from Brookstone Lights & Speakers
The absolute best part about the Cat Ear Headphones? They light up! Oh, yes, they do. Just so you know, this has to be one of the most embarrassing videos of myself that I’m sharing with you. My daughter did think it was pretty funny while she was helping to film it though. 😛
Oh, that song can always make me move. 🙂 Just so you know, the headphone portion does not turn off when the external speakers are used. That’s why I couldn’t turn them up too loud in the above video. If you want the external speakers to play louder than what you heard in the above video, you’ll probably want to take them off your head before cranking up the volume for the external speakers. The Cat Ear Headphones come in blue, red, green, and purple.
Cat Ear Headphones from Brookstone: The Perfect Gift
The Cat Ear Headphones from Brookstone are perfect for the teens in your life (i.e. graduation gift idea) or techie friends that love unique and fun presents. Or, you can just get a pair for yourself and use the boom mic to do super serious conference calls…with cat ears on your head! Ha! You can buy them online or in-store.
I know I’m going to love the fact that my teen has a pair of these Cat Ear Headphones from Brookstone. Every time I look in her direction, it makes me smile even more than usual and that’s definitely a good thing. I may have to get a pair for Frans and for me in different colors to keep things from getting boring at home.
Who do you know that would LOVE a pair of these Cat Ear Headphones?
