Of course, the main reason I adore these headphones has to be the little cat ears which look so cute when worn. I also love that they are rose gold coloured - something that attracts pretty much every blogger!
However - I honestly did pick these up for a important reasons besides them being cat themed (although of course this was the main reason). The first responsible reason I picked these up is for when I go to the gym as there really is nothing more annoying than earphones falling out mid-run. The second reason is that I tend to find that in-ear headphones can give me a ear/headache. Especially when worn over long periods of time. So - with their padded, over-ear design - I thought these would be a perfect way to beat any problems either in gym or when travelling.
Besides comfort I also found the sound quality of these headphones to be pretty great. Not only is it crisp, but the sound is also louder then apple headphones - something that is perfect for listening to things in a noisy environment. Another great element of this product is that the speakers themselves can be rotated - meaning they can easily be turned flat for easy storage.
The only slight downside to these headphones is the frame itself does feel a little flimsy - so I wouldn't recommend throwing them into a handbag or suitcase. However popping them into the protective bag should help keep scratch-free & safe.
Since purchasing these have quickly become one of my favourite accessories & I can't wait to test them out on long journeys in the not-to-distant future. If you're interested in picking a pair up for yourself - these currently retail for £35.00 & can be picked up from either the Skinny Dip website or from Urban Outfitters.
