From one of the original visionaries and sound engineers behind the Beats By Dre headphones comes a new generation of sound that is as fierce as its name implies. Monster Headphones were created with the premise of experiencing the music you listen to, within the lifestyle you enjoy. Hitting the market just over a year ago the Monster collection was designed with superior sound and functionality in mind, from the athlete to DJ, the professional and beyond.
I had a chance to sit down with the owner and innovator behind the Monster brand, Noel Lee, to discuss his vision and the “Pure Monster Sound” concept adopted for his product line. He relayed that his focus was to 'commodotize' a quality, intimate music encounter in which the listener felt inherently connected to the artist and could in turn, experience the fullness of the sound in every song, regardless of genre. He candidly admitted he cut his teeth while designing the Beats By Dre Headphones, primarily engineered for the deep bass lover, specific to the Hip Hop and Dance music genres. In contrast the Monster collection, and its ferocious Pure Monster Sound, were inspired by music itself and capably blanket any genre or platform.
Similarly, Noel fashioned each of his headphones with its user’s style in mind. The Diamond Tears were specifically branded for ladies and boast a stunning opalescent look with an equally pristine sound quality. Or there is the newly released iSport Freedom (pictured above), which is a first-of-its kind wireless headphone created for athletes and boasts antimicrobial, water resistant components. The Inspiration Headphones, Noel told me, were literally named and inspired by the iPhone and it’s sleek professional appearance and functionality. They exhale high definition audio while capturing attention with a polished appearance and the added versatility of interchangeable headbands. The NCredible NTune headphones pulse with a deeper bass and “NCredibly” durable and flexible headband. It boasts a color line equally as booming, available in just about any shade, tone or color, including bold candy apple, red, green and blue, which Lee confessed originated from his love of cars.
With so many other styles, functions and sound option packages to choose from in the Monster headphone collection, they have succeeded in manufacturing a beastly audio product line. I have personally sampled several of the Monster headphones myself, and can vouch that this is the next evolution of audio intelligence and ingenuity, priced to please as low as $59.95. And since the holiday season is right around the corner, these reasonably, priced luxury sound gardens, are the perfect gift for your music savvy loved one or your own wish list. The NCredible NTune will be exclusively available at Wal-Mart but the rest of Noel Lee’s innovative headphones are all available at Monsterproducts.com as well as Amazon.com and other online retailers.
