Brookstone Axent Cat Headphone Review and Gaming Compatibility Fixes

The following post includes affiliate links to products on amazon.com. If you buy these things via these links, I get a commission at no additional cost to you. They haven’t sent me any of these things for free, nor have they asked me to write about these products. I just figured if I send them business, I may as well get compensated for it.

For my birthday a few months ago, my boyfriend Simon bought me a pair of these Cat Ear Headphones (Update (12/7/17): now there’s an improved and upgraded wireless version that changes colors and supposedly has fewer wiring issues). Not only do they feature the pointy cat ears, but they also light up and can be used as speakers in order to share one’s music; or in my case inflict it on others. They are incredibly novel and also incredibly expensive. So it was incredibly harrumphing that they do not work as expected straight out of the box.

I mean, they work just fine as headphones so I’m not exactly crying false advertisement. And I suppose technically they could be used for gaming, if that game were on a cellphone or possibly the Nintendo DS. Because the headset uses a 4-pin jack, which combines the headphones and the mic into a single cable, you can’t use it with most PC’s which have separate jacks for audio and mic. I am to understand that the current generation of gaming consoles are compatible with the 4-pin jack, but it leaves us last-gen plebians with our dicks hangin’ out.

Nonetheless, it is possible to make these headphones interface with both the PC and the PlayStation 3. It requires more equipment, sure, but for some it is a worthwhile endeavor.

 I cut my hair like this as a joke. I'll finish it after dinner.  Not bad for my first time making a whole Thanksgiving dinner.
 Simon got me this fridge magnet as an early Christmas present. He said he couldn't hold on to it for a whole month. I fkn died laughing.  My makeup held up pretty well despite getting shot in the eye with a water gun at the #rockyhorrormovieparty at the Alamo @drafthouse. Nearly lost a contact. Maybe clarify that prop water guns are not to be used to shoot other patrons next time. Was very fun otherwise although I feel bad leaving such a mess behind. And Kelly, ya dumb broad, if you're too drunk to hit your friend who's four seats away, you're too drunk to be shooting your friends at all.
