The Squishmallow HP-0036-AST5-FOX Plush Headphones are a cute and fun option for kids and teens looking for stylish on-ear headphones. These headphones feature soft plush ear cups in the shape of a fox, with adjustable headband for a customized fit. They connect via a 3.5mm audio jack and are compatible with smartphones, tablets and other audio devices.


The highlight of these on-ear headphones is definitely the adorable fox-shaped plush design. The ear cups and headband are covered in super soft plush material, making them lightweight and comfortable for extended wear. The headphones come in a choice of two colorful designs - Wendy the green frog or Malcolm the purple mushroom.

The adjustable headband allows you to customize the fit. The headphones look like a friendly fox hugging your head! The playful design will appeal to kids and adolescents.

Sound Quality

For plush headphones, the sound quality is decent but not outstanding. The soft ear cups block out some environmental noise and enhance the bass. Sound comes through clearly for music, videos and games. However, audiophiles may find the sound lacks depth and clarity, especially at higher volumes. The focus is more on cute appearance than pristine audio reproduction.
