VEKTR: Expertly Blending the Worlds of Fashion and Pure Monster Sound®
VEKTR on-ear headphones provide users with a comfortable, premium-quality listening solution that blends the worlds of fashion and great sound. The VEKTR headphones feature a distinctive diamond-cut Diesel logo on each plush ear cup, and provide a unique sound experience: the combination of enhanced audio performance and unique visual design engages the senses and adds a new level of self-expression to the music listening experience.
Reflecting Diesel's passion for innovation and attention to detail, stylistic details of VEKTR include a silkscreen Mohican head on both ear cups, combined with touches of contrasting black, grey and brushed aluminum, as well as different finishes (shiny, matte and rubberized paint). The cable features a special triangular section that
prevents tangling. VEKTR headphones come with a distinctive VEKTR touring case in black canvas.
Head Monster Noel Lee noted: "For Monster, headphone creation always begins with powerful, accurate audio reproduction, accompanied by great style and design. With our new VEKTR Stefano Rosso & Noel Lee
headphones, we are especially fortunate to be partnering with such an iconic company as Diesel to offer our customers a brand new type of personal listening solution that opens up new horizons in both sound and fashion."
