The Audio Gear Your Ears Have Been Missing Has Arrived

In this congested world of technology, it’s the subtle features that make the difference between a gadget being overlooked or embraced by the masses. Get out of the way, Beats by Dre: Axent Wear may have found the next big niche in the audio headgear world with these cat ear headphones. Bask in their glory:

Axent Wear’s Indiegogo campaign to make these kicked off yesterday with their initial funding goal being set at $250,000. As of the writing of this story, the campaign has currently received $314,630. I’m sure if I wanted to be obsessive compulsive and refresh the Indiegogo page, that figure would be substantially higher.

It’s pretty clear to see that these are destined to be a hot commodity in the nerd-verse. I mean, come on, the thing has external speakers installed into cat ears! Any mention of the word cat warrants a 90% definitive purchase of anything involved, and those numbers are amplified when you take my fashion and daily music consumption into account. Outside of the fact that the headphones are straight up kawaii as f***, they also boast quite a viable feature as well, allowing folks without headphones to enjoy tunes with the external speakers. The core specifications of these may not live up to any hardcore audiophile’s expectations, but again: who cares? They’re cat ears!


Do these Axent Wear headphones look like something you can rock when you’re out and about? Drop your thoughts into the comments below.

    Needs a mic for gaming & Skype, but I’m totes on board with this…  

  2. Jylanda Graham says:

    Shut up and take my money. Lol jk. These are awesome I would totally rock the purple ones!

  3. I hate to be the nay sayer (wait… no, I don’t) but these things are going to break quicker than Theon Greyjoy.  Also, the first person to turn the external speakers on in a public place gets throat-punched.

  4. Candi says:

    These have been being broadcasted for a long time now on DeviantArt…I’m surprised it took them so long to start a funder! D:

  5. Maraphina says:

    Shut up and take my money

  6. Rob Moffett says:

    Isn’t this how Parker Posey is going to make us all think she’s just the coolest chic ever?

    • ClasikRok says:

      I’m sure you meant “jerkin'”! “Conform! Free will is overrated! Jump on the bandwagon! There is no such place as Area 51! “

  7. Now they just have to assure me this will be compatible with the PS3/PS4 and I’m sold.

  8. d says:

    I want mine in pink please

  9. Rose Walker says:

    Please make these!! i want them soo bad and I’m sure you’ll get a lot of furries to buy them all over the world 😀 

    • Razors says:

      ^ funny. I saw this posted on a furry page…and was all….”Whaaaa?! I want!” So yes, you are correct…xD

  10. eeeee hee hee hee! Look at em!

  11. Flames says:

    OMG I want

  12. Ebony says:

    yes… yes and yes

  13. Ian Hunter says:

    So,they can make a hot asian babe look sexy…..but how many of us are hot asian chicks?

  14. Those are terrible. No one is going to want to look like a cat, and headphones with speakers on them DEFEATS THE PURPOSE OF HEADPHONES

    • Malik Forté says:

      You’d be surprised. And yes, the external speakers seem contradicting, but they also seem pretty rad at the same time. 

    • Pi says:

      You’re wrong on that second point. More than once I’ve been listening to music and wanted to share a song with a person next to me, causing an awkward “here, put this earbud in and I’ll put in the other one so we can both listen” situation. If you prefer over-the-ear headphones, it’s even worse because you can’t share at all. They’re not for people that only want speakers and don’t plan on using the headphones or vice versa – they’re for people that might switch between the two.
      Also the popularity of the campaign for these and the necomimi ear means you’re wrong on your first point as well.

    • threenorns says:

      i would totally buy them.

  15. ErraticFox says:

    Yes, lets all go for the looks and not the quality. Kill yourself
