Slip the cushioned earcups over your ears and they conform the unique shape of your head, blocking out background noise and letting you enjoy all the rich, vibrant sound you expect from premium headphones. But that’s just the beginning. With the flip of a switch, your headphones go from private sound studio to a party-rocking sound system everyone around you can enjoy as your music pumps through the external cat ear speakers.

These headphones look as great as they sound.
The headphones you wear make a fashion statement, and these Cat Ear Headphones make one of the coolest there is. Their distinct shape and prominent cat ears are accented by bright LED lights that can be controlled independently from the speakers. Light ‘em up to suit you mood, your wardrobe, or just because you can.

Gamers, meet your new favorite headset.
When it’s time to make the switch from music to gaming, Cat Ear Headphones have you covered. Simply plug in the detachable boom mic and you’ve got the coolest looking headset around. Game on!
