Grad Gift: Cat Ear Headphones From Brookstone


This post is sponsored by Brookstone; while the views expressed here were genuinely mine, consideration was paid to me to share my review of this product.

Did you happen to catch my Mother’s Day Gift guide? I’m still worn out from putting it together, but shortly after publishing, I realized that it’s grad season. And while I don’t think I’ll be doing a comprehensive list for grads, I do have a fun recommendation for teen and tween music enthusiasts, gamers, and those who don’t mind showing their individuality.

At this age, kids are all about standing out and celebrating their quirks, making Brookstone’s Cat Ear Headphones a great gift to give this year for upcoming graduations and birthdays. Brookstone is currently offering $20 off the regular price of Cat Ear Headphones, so be sure to take advantage of the savings if you’re shopping.



We were sent a pair in purple, RIL Prince, and we’ve been tickled by them. Not only are the Cat Ear Headphones cool to look at, the sound quality is amazing. The music is crisp and the bass is on point. These are not just a novelty, they really do werk. I asked Daddy G to be my headphone model and he gave me stank face. Moments after,  I caught him doing a jig with them on. That said, he can vouch for the crazy-good sound quality being up there with his premium headphones.


So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s 1999.

The Brookstone Cat Ear Headphones are the only headphones that feature LED Cat Ears that light-up when listening to music. As a bonus, the headphones feature a switch that allows the listener to turn them into a party-rockin’ sound system so everyone around can jam too. The LED lights can also be controlled independently from the speakers, so the wearer can become a DJ of sorts. Remember the days spent hanging out on the porch with your boombox? Cat Ear Phones = nostalgia simplified.



Other features include ear-cup cushions that reduce outside noise, forward and back buttons for instant music selection, inline volume controls, USB rechargeable batteries that last for up to five hours, and a detachable boom mic for video gaming.

Here’s a video of Juicy and Cat Ear Headphones in action. You will hear when my cackles can no longer be contained. LOL

There’s a couple of ways you can purchase Cat Ear Headphones; you can buy them online or you can go into your local Brookstone Store. When you buy them online, if you opt-in to Brookstone’s email program you don’t have to pay sales tax! Score!
