The 17 Cutest Headphones To Make Your Commute More Fun

Something to make noise about

Let’s face it, commuting can be pretty dismal. Whether it’s painstakingly mundane, absurdly long, or has you surrounded by extremely annoying people (or a combination of all three), most of us aren’t blessed with particularly enjoyable commutes. Morning train rides to work and running from class to class on foot can all be a bit of a drag, especially without the help of our favorite music or podcasts. For those of us who don’t get to drive ourselves places (thus, don’t have a sound system to blast our favorite Britney hits to lift our mood), a good pair of headphones is the next best thing.

With that said, we rounded up the 17 cutest pairs of headphones out there now—from moderate to luxe, in every color of the rainbow—to help you not only survive your morning commute but also to do it in style. We included over-the-ear versions, to tune out any chatter happening around you; ear buds, to throw in your purse when you’re on the go; and pairs that double as fashion accessories. Basically, we’ve got you (and your ears) covered.
