Key Decision Influencers: What to know while buying over-ear cat ear headphones?

It becomes quite a task to filter out the best cat-ear headphones when you have so many options available out there. So it’s only wise that you spend a couple of minutes reading what you should know when buying over-the-ear, cat ear headphones before you commit to the “cute n cool” kitty version. 

  • Sound Quality – If you are leaning towards cat-ear headphones owing to their amazing looks, it doesn’t mean you skip the ever-important sound quality. The infatuation with cat ears might fade off, but if the headphones don’t sound right and powerful, you might toss them away sooner. Look for words like “balanced HD sound”, “strong bass”, “noise cancellation”, etc. in the product description.
  • Design and Durability – The overall build and design should make sense to you as the end-user. Make sure you are comfortable with an over-the-ear design before you take the plunge. If you are more of a “earbuds” kind of person, you might not be very comfortable in these. Also, since you spend, you would like the product to be of good construction quality that can withstand regular use for approx. 3-4 years.
  • Comfort – What use are great-looking headphones, if they hurt, itch, or don’t fit right on your head? The material of the earmuffs and the headband is of utmost importance when it comes to extended playtime with headphones. Go for soft, cushiony, silicone or leather-based muffs with an adjustable headband design to give you that perfect fit.
  • Wired or Wireless – If you are mostly desk-bound or hard core audiophile, the wired version might be your go-to choice. However, if you prefer mobility and stream music from different devices, then a Bluetooth-supported wireless version is definitely the way to go.
  • Battery life – A good battery life is anywhere between 10-20 hours of playtime on a single charge. The charging should be quick and convenient for you to get on with music and games without much delay.
