Yep, that really is a pair of headphones with cats on them. Miaow! Introducing my favourite Christmas present this year: my Diane von Furstenberg headphones.
It seems that all of a sudden, everyone owns a big old pair of headphones. The simple earphones that come with your phone appear to be out of favour and have been replaced with the more obvious over-ear headphones of days gone by. I don’t really get what the big fuss is and certainly would not pay hundreds of pounds for a pair of Beats as I’m not tech savvy enough to properly value why they are so expensive. That being said, I work in a very loud office and commute on the noisy underground everyday, so Spotify is my saviour and I wanted to bring a bit more fashion to my musical musings.
I knew as soon as I laid eyes on these beauties that I needed them in my life. The cat design is inspired by DVF’s collaborator, New York DJ Harley Viera-Newton’s cat, Marmite, and can be found on other DVF accessories too (inclulding an awesome handbag). Aside from the cat, the headphones are very simple and black in colour, very inconspicuous until you get closer!
The sound quality is great in my opinion, much better than my earphones, and so much more comfortable to wear. I also love the mini MP3 player that doubles up as an adorable button, I’m going to get it loaded with songs so I don’t always have to drain my phone battery when I’m on the go.
These headphones may not be the most high tech pair on the market, but I think they are definitely the most stylish, and I’m pretty confident I won’t see loads of other people wearing them on the tube! They are still available to buy from Matches.com here.
What do you think of my new headphones? And what did you get for Christmas?
