-- Super Sonic Inspiration™ Reshapes What’s Possible in Sound Quality and Style, Featuring Interchangeable Headbands in Exciting New Colors and Styles --
Berlin, Germany, August 31, 2012 – Monster, the world leader in high-performance personal audio, is dramatically raising the bar for headphone sound and style with the debut of Inspiration™, the company’s first over-ear, advanced noise-canceling headphone, featuring unique interchangeable headbands in a variety of colors and styles. Designed by Noel Lee, who engineered the sound of Beats by Dr. Dre™ headphones, Inspiration combines serious audio and high style. The headphones come in titanium, white, or silver, as well as passive ($299.95) and active ($349.95) noise-canceling models. At IFA 2012, Monster is unveiling an exciting range of 14 brand new headband colors and styles, ideal for the fall fashion season and the upcoming holidays.
Exciting New Headband Colors and Styles – Perfect for the Holidays!
Monster® Inspiration headphones mark the debut of a major breakthrough in style and headphone customization – interchangeable headbands that let users match any mood or outfit. In addition to the three original versions, Titanium, White or Black, Inspiration purchasers receive two different colored headbands with each headphone purchase, including: Black and Raptor Black headbands with the Titanium version; White and Raptor White with the White version; and Silver and Raptor Silver with the Silver version. Eight additional colored headbands are now available for separate purchase, including: Expression, Raptor Silver, Silver, Expression Silver, Waxed Denim, Navy, Dark Brown, and Tomato. The additional headband designs will also be available at Monster’s Inspiration microsite (www.monsterinspiration.com). Adding even more fashion-forward flexibility for music lovers this fall, Monster will debut a new online collection of headband colors and styles available at the microsite, with color options including green, purple, pink rose, teal, cobalt, tangerine. In all, that totals 14 brand new color headbands for Inspiration this fall.
Serious Audio. High Style. Pure Monster Sound®
Inspiration embraces the signature Pure Monster Sound – high-definition audio with excellent clarity, warm mid-range and strong bass that stops short of overpowering the music. They are available in both an active noise cancellation version and an unpowered noise-isolation version, both in black and white – with on-ear and in-ear models to follow.
Uniquely Effective Noise Cancellation Technology
In keeping with Monster’s commitment to Always Lead, Never Follow, Inspiration headphones offer a wide range of key innovations and unique benefits. Monster’s next-generation advanced active noise cancellation and music and noise cancellation work together seamlessly and the headphones will continue to play even with no batteries. The top-of-the-line over-ear Inspiration model features noise canceling built around two discreet microphones. One handles constant sounds (like the droning inside a plane) and the other cuts out intermittent noises (like clapping or beeping). And since not all distractions come from outside, Monster built the drivers on solid metal frames and cushioned them with pillow-soft ear pads for a great seal and amazing comfort.
Inspiration headphones come with three different types of cables, including: straight audio mini-to-mini, Universal ControlTalk™ and ControlTalk for Apple® devices, making them ideal for use with virtually any device. Their “super sonic” high-end audio performance delivers a new level of music reproduction, and the pillow soft ear cushions not only keep listeners comfortable for hours, but also prevent unwanted noise from disturbing those around you!
Founder and Head Monster Noel Lee, who was recently honored with the prestigious Plus X Award®: Lifetime Achievement Award, is the audio expert responsible for the dramatically enhanced sound quality of Inspiration. He noted: “Inspiration gives all serious music lovers an opportunity to go beyond their current listening choices and truly elevate their listening experience. We designed and engineered Inspiration to bring out more of the truth behind every great recording.”
