A very hot trend from Asia is spilling over to us in Europe: Cat ear headphones! We wanted to know more precisely what that is and why sooner or later you cannot avoid the trendy accessories.
Why wear ordinary, boring headphones when things can go crazy too? That is exactly the question and that is why they were invented, the cat ear headphones. It’s unbelievable fun to walk through the city in a stylish cat look and to attract attention. Not only the young people have recognized this, the “cat ears trend” is now also enjoying growing popularity among the 30 plus generation.
As a very special gift, the cat ears are therefore the hit of the season for every age group! In short: With these chic things you are guaranteed to attract attention everywhere, but what are the differences between the different models and which headphones are the right ones for which purpose? We took a closer look at the 10 best headsets with cat ears for you!
The Cat Throne: Razer Kraken Kitty
- Kitty Ears powered by Razer Chroma: With 16.8 million colors, a large selection of effects and luminous ear cups including luminous cat ears, you can personalize your own look to your heart’s content for every occasion
- Reactive streaming lighting: Present your own show on a whole new level thanks to lighting that can react to emotes, notifications and greetings from the audience. Simply use the Streamer Companion App to specify exactly which colors and effects should be used
- Microphone with active noise suppression: The high-quality microphone, which filters out disturbing background noises at the factory, can be pulled out so that your own voice works at least as well as the styling
Our number one and thus the winner of our ranking is a device that leaves little to be desired and is still affordable. The Razer Kraken Kitty delivers almost everything a cat fan needs to be completely happy. With it you get a classy gaming headset that knows how to satisfy even the highest demands.
The adjustable RGB chroma lighting provides a real light highlight in the truest sense of the word and looks simply great in the dark as well as in the light. The cat ears can shine in different colors and the shapely microphone is also noticeable through a light element. The streaming lighting of this model reacts to online interactions and expressions of emotions through, for example, emojis with color changes, which makes working with this model a special experience. The greatest thing about this model, however, is the quite serious appearance, so it can easily be worn by men without creating greater feelings of shame and it still looks damn good in every respect. An indispensable accessory for every proud hangover!
But the Razer is not only appealing on the outside, there is also a lot technically. The microphone with active noise suppression ensures the best voice quality for telephony, streaming or chatting. The Kraken Kitty can also score a lot in terms of sound quality. The sound is rich and vivid and even the bass knows how to convince (really the best bass from this top list, be careful when choosing the volume).
Although the Razer cat-ear headset unfortunately does not have a Bluetooth function, it is connected via USB via a wired connection, but this deficit is easily made up for by the high level of wearing comfort, the longevity of the headset and the sound quality. The ear pads contain a cooling gel, which ensures that even after many hours of wear, the ears do not hurt and the headset sits comfortably. This guarantees hours of music enjoyment or video games fun. The headphones are also built to last and the frame is made with bauxite aluminum to make this possible. Despite all of this, the headset is very light and super comfortable to wear.
All in all a very good price-performance ratio and our clear winner in all areas!
SOMIC G951S pink gaming headset
- QUALITY PERFORMANCE – Built-in 40mm HiFi speakers and a rich bass effect, a high standard of hardware configuration and fidelity for a great 4D experience for games and videos.
- LOVELY CAT APPEARENCE – With a pink good looking and detachable cat ear shape, a pretty, cute design needs to get girls and women in the eyes. Light and skin-friendly leather for a long time, let yourself be admired.
- ^ 🎧 ^ HIGHLY COMPATIBLE (3.5MM PLUG) – Can be compatible with Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 or 5, Computer, Laptop, iPad, iPhone. Microphone and audio can also be separated with a splitter cable if used for PC.
The Somic G951 headset in feminine design impresses with its cute appearance. Here, LED lamps flash and sparkle on the side of the ear cups in the form of cute cat faces. The SOMIC headset has removable cat ears so that they can be attached to or removed from the headset depending on your mood.
The sound can be heard, is very low-noise and impressive even for this price range. Highs, mids as well as lows and bass are where they belong (even if the bass, as with almost all models, still leaves room for improvement) and the built-in vibration technology, which also puts you physically in the middle of the action, is the hit with Gaming.
The microphone is flexible, solidly built and can also be heard sonically (no hissing or hissing, easily understandable sound for telephony and gaming) the only disadvantage here is that the microphone cannot be muted on the headset. If that doesn’t bother you, the G951 is a decent model that will still sit comfortably and without pressing even after hours (when fully charged, over 10 hours should not be a problem).
- CT-7S is a lighting-themed foldable bluetooth headphone. These headphones combine elements of music, light and color. The cat ear with embedded red / blue / green LED can blink and change color in rhythm. With the glowing Riwbox Cat cartoon by the side, you can take a step away from your usual self and let everyone else know how good you are feeling.
- Bluetooth: Powerful 40mm speaker with bluetooth technology that brings you the demands of high quality natural sound and strong bass while remaining comfortable. As soon as you have carried out the comparison. Just turn on the headphones and they’ll connect to your device. The connection status is displayed on the smartphone screen and a voice reminder is available for the battery level.
- ON / OFF LED indicator: Press and hold the M button for 3 seconds to turn the LED on or off. When you use the kids headphones in Bluetooth mode, you can turn off the LED flashing effect to reserve more battery for longer playing music.
The Riwbox CT-7 immediately catches the eye. Not necessarily particularly valuable, but totally spacey and wacky, it is a model for the courageous birds of paradise and simply has to be mentioned here!
Despite its relatively low price, it can keep up with much more expensive models in terms of feel, comfort and, last but not least, sound quality. Those who are not put off by the poppy exterior will get solid highs and relatively good bass for a budget that is not too big.
The only drawback here is the size of the model, which is probably intended for smaller heads, a fact that should be taken into account before buying in order to avoid nasty surprises. The battery life with a full charge of just over 2 hours is also significantly shorter than that of most competitors in the same price range. All in all, the Riwbox triggers mixed feelings, which we are quick to forget when we see this piece of jewelery! Here it means nothing like out into the city and present the eavesdroppers! Guaranteed to be an eye-catcher – day or night, a model for real party cats and hangovers!
These headphones in the entry-level price range offer flashing, color-changing cat ears in a rather inconspicuous design and unfortunately they are also very small. A microphone is not included, but the headphones are foldable, rechargeable (the battery lasts approx. 40 hours with continuous operation) and the wearing comfort is not earth-shattering, but still quite pleasant after more than an hour of listening to music.
The sound quality is really very decent for a model in this price range. Only the bass … and I suspect we will come to this conclusion more often in this article … leaves a lot to be desired.
Conclusion: For whom sound quality and comfort are secondary and the cat eavesdroppers come first and whoever wants to use them to the fullest and, above all, show them, is not particularly well advised with this device, as there are clearly thicker things on the market ! The technical performance, however, is satisfactory. So if you don’t really dare to run through the streets with full cat power, you might have found your model of choice with the Picun.
LSQ cat headphones
- This is a kids bluetooth wireless headset with a lighting theme. We want to bring happiness to every family and make our daily life a little fun. This children’s headset combines elements of music, lighting and color, and the cat ears embedded in the red / blue / green LEDs can flash and change color in rhythm. With the glowing Riwbox Cat Side Cartoons you can stay away from the usual self and let the other person know how you do

Our next model can come up with an absolutely elegant design and huge, glowing ears. The LSQ over-ear headphones are impressive, also in terms of price! Although it is not a sound miracle, it is surprisingly good with the bass and there is a lot of “thump” in the small auricles. The wearing comfort is not world-shattering and yet can be described as sufficient, the battery lasts about 7 hours fully charged and is therefore good entry-level to middle class. All in all, good and, above all, chic headphones that look much more expensive and valuable than they actually are.
iClever BoostCare children’s headphones
- iClever Safe Kids headphones: Especially for children from 3 years of age with adjustable headband and padded ear pads and headband (recommended for children from 3 to 12 years)

This model, without flashing or removable ears, made entirely of hard plastic and of course without a microphone, is also ideal for the very young cat fans and can even be bought with your own pocket money!
Of course, you shouldn’t expect any surprises with this economy model. The sound quality is quite thin, the bass is barely noticeable and the wearing comfort can be rated as sufficient. The design is, as I said, rather unspectacular, but as an entry-level model for fur noses in kindergarten age, this should be exactly the right thing for daily use and the resulting daily stress on the material, especially since the headphones are also very light at 118 grams and can be easily moved can be stowed in the satchel. However, you shouldn’t expect miracles here when it comes to battery life either. Nevertheless, 2 to 3 hours of fun with a fully charged battery is realistic.
Limson children’s headphones
- 【Foldable & Adjustable】 The headset is adjustable, you can adjust the length of the strap by yourself according to your size, and it is foldable, this is space saving and also convenient to take when you go outside or travel.
- 【High quality sound】 Sound is good, enjoy music as soon as your music device is connected. The limited volume is safe to protect your children’s hearing.

This chic model with cute, flashing cat ears is specially made for the very little ones and is an absolute eye-catcher!
As expected in the price range, the sound can be described as acceptable. The big weak point of this model is definitely the bass. If the middle and high notes are represented quite cleanly, the Limson with the lower registers has its problems.
All in all, the sound quality offered is more than sufficient for children’s headphones and not only ensures fun for young and old thanks to their appearance. The model does not contain a microphone, but this is also a third priority for this junior model. The batteries included allow listening fun for approx. 3 to 4 hours (after all, the flashing ears are also supplied) and the model is therefore at a very good level in this price range. As far as wearing comfort is concerned, there is nothing to complain about, assuming that your head is small! The padding is sufficient, nothing pinches or pinches!
So if you want to give your little ones a quick treat and don’t want to dig too deep into their pockets, the Limson gives you a lot of meow for little money.
