Listen to the music:
Amazing Monster N-Tune HD Headphones


When I was given the chance to review a pair of N-Tune HD Headphones by Monster, I literally shouted out loud.  You know Monster.  THAT Monster.  The experts behind Pure Monster SoundTM.

Monster Headphones?  In a family of three sons who all love music?  Talk about a match made in heaven!  When the delivery service brought the package to my house, I couldn't open it fast enough.


Cool, right?  These are part of the Candy Colours Collection.  Lots of amazing color choices.


But even this packaging can't do justice to the headphones themselves. They're a technological work of art.



I tried the headphones and was truly impressed with them.  At that point I considered putting them away and to give to my youngest son, Lee, as a Christmas gift.  But then I decided to enlist his help to review the headphones.  I knew that I would like them and could use them well, but could they stand up to being used by a teenaged boy?

Lee is a junior in high school, so he has a busy schedule.  At his school, students are allowed to bring electronic devices to use in their schoolwork.  They're also allowed to listen to music in Study Hall, provided that they use headphones.

My oldest son is a classic rock fan.  My middle son loves country music.  Lee is a movie lover, so likes to listen to movie soundtracks.  He was so happy to have good headphones for listening to his favorite scores!

Red hair, red headphones.  Pretty awesome, don't you think?

Obviously these headphones look amazing, but they're more than just a cool-looking package.  They pack a powerful sound performance.  Monster says, "N-Tune HD is an audio achievement that will allow you to hear your music as you never have before, bringing you closer to the performance."  And that's right.  These headphones deliver pure Monster sound.

The headphones also provide noise isolation.  Lee really appreciates being able to use them shut out distracting noises in study hall.

One of Lee's favorite features is that they're super comfortable to wear.  They're easily adjustable in size and the earpieces are nicely padded.  I really appreciate this feature, too.  Some headphones are so uncomfortable that wearing them is distracting, but not these.

My favorite feature is that these headphones are built to be durable.  They're specially engineered to be super-tough and designed for durability.  I've found many electronic gadgets look great but break easily.  These were designed with the user in mind--the folks at Monster know that headphones are going to get tossed into backpacks, handed from friend to friend, perhaps even sat upon.  These look incredibly cool, but they're also tough.  After a couple of weeks of being subjected to very rough (i.e., normal) use by a 16-year-old boy, the headphones have one tiny scratch in the paint.

And the other great thing about the N-Tune Headphones is they're reasonably priced.  Monster's goal in producing this product was to provide Pure Monster Sound at prices that most people can afford.

Incredible sound, beautiful appearance, great comfort, and excellent value.  I'd say this product is a winner!  Lee told me that he thought that any high school or college student would be really happy to receive these headphones as a gift.  I asked him if he would have been happy to receive these for Christmas.  His response? "Definitely."  But he's really glad that one Christmas gift came early this year!

Richella Parham said...

As you'll see when you visit the walmart.com site, these sell for $119. Obviously that's not cheap, but it's much cheaper than similar headphones from other lines. Monster was trying to create a product that people could afford when it developed these headphones.

WOW! These headsets are awesome. I'm really undecided between the red and blue. But think I'd have to choose the blue.

Thanks,
