Music is becoming part of our daily lives from the morning till the moment when you hit the bed, so why is having a pair of good headphones so hard. Well here is why, because you have never experienced these Monster headphones. Produced by Monster Cables, these new ear buds are made for people that want great sounding music and are okay paying a little bit more to get them.
Now before I get into the full review, I want to apologize for my mistake. I was so excited about trying to break one pair of these ear buds when I received them that I forgot I needed it for images. I actually was not successful in destroying the headphones, but I did give it a scratch after the sledge hammer hit it to a concrete ground (seriously). Regardless, I still have some pretty good images, and I will post the breaking of video as soon as I can.
ReviewWhen you receive these headphones, they come in a very small nice and neat box. This box contents everything you need to make you feel happy about your purchase. The mobile version of the headphones comes with a free 2G micro SD card for people that need it for their device. The Jams version comes without a MicroSD card, but it does have music up and down controls so you can easily switch between songs. The other included items are adaptors, manuals, and that very cool pouch that you can put your ear buds in.
The included accessories are pretty great for the price and as far as included things, the Mobile version wins.
Here is the most important of this review, because if you are buying headphones, they have to sound good and these really do. When I first received these headphones the quality that it produces was so great that I wore it while driving to work the next day (which as you know is not very smart). I mean I am a person that listens to Hip-hop, Jazz, Swing, and Reggae, and these headphones handled all of them with great detail to every beat. The bass from the Hip-hop songs came through and sounded like I was putting my ear against some pretty big speakers. The treble on the Jazz music I listened to sounds perfect, and it really does bring a smile on your face when you hear the quality.
Features and Experience:
Now these headphones are not perfect in every way. There is one huge flaw with them but it is easily fixed. The headphones come with one of the worst ear buds ever. When I first put them on, I noticed how uncomfortable they were on my small ear and I quickly took them off. Now lucky for me they came with the $25 SuperTips that were the most comfortable I have ever worn and automatically changed my experience with the headphones for the better.
Now these come for a pretty steep price tag. The Mobile version will be around $149.95, which is around the price of a new phone with a contract. The other version, the standard version is around $10 less and you get the same thing the Mobile version has except the 2 GB memory card with adapter.
Now to answer the question this whole review is about, would I buy this? Yes I would, I would love to own it and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a great pair of headphones that bring you great quality but for a little more than the usual price.
4/5: I still very much hate the included ear buds.
