With added durability and a host of unique benefits for active users, the new models join the existing blue iSport™ Immersion™ in the Monster® line. Like all Monster® headphones, the super tough iSport™ models deliver unprecedented levels of audio performance that will allow workout enthusiasts and athletes to maximize their performance while enjoying the best possible music listening experiences.
The Next Step Up in Audio Adrenaline, with Pure Monster Sound™
The new iSport™ athlete’s headphones represent the next step up in pure audio adrenaline, and offer active listeners even more options for making iSport™ an integral part of their workout and exercise routines. Like all Monster® headphones, the new iSport™ models deliver the company’s Pure Monster Sound™, a sonic signature specially designed by Head Monster Noel Lee, the audio engineer behind the sound of Beats by Dr. Dre® headphones. Articulate, tight, and ultimately revealing, Pure Monster Sound™ uses Monster’s latest proprietary technologies to offer the full experience of live music, with extreme clarity, articulation, and tight deep pounding bass that motivates you to achieve at your highest level of performance.
The Perfect Athlete’s Headphone for Everyone from Beginners to Pros
All sweatproof and washable iSport™ headphones include advanced sonic capabilities that let users focus on their activities and workout at all times. The Head Monster Noel Lee explained why the company is announcing today’s expansion of the iSport™ line, noting: “Our original iSport™ Immersion™ marked a pioneering step in athlete’s headphones, providing active listeners with a new way to excel at their sport while enjoying great sounding music. This was the first headphone with the features and durability capable of really keeping up with even the most intense workouts. Today, we’re building on our innovations in the sports arena, with two new iSport™ models targeted at everyone who wants to pump it up and achieve their very best, from entry level fitness enthusiasts to the most hard core workout buffs and professional athletes.”
iSport™ Victory: Achieve Your Very Best
The new flagship, Victory improves on the original iSport™ foundation, with an even more comfortable earhook design, as well as an updated Omnitip for even better flexibility and snug fit. The result is an added level of pulse pounding audio that no other sport headphone can deliver. With its powerful Pure Monster Sound™ and superior noise isolation, Victory users can stay focused on the most intense workouts and extreme outdoor sports.
iSport™ Intensity: Hear Some Ambient Noise, Without Sacrificing Audio Quality
The iSport™ Intensity is the first Monster in-ear headphone designed to allow users to hear some ambient noise while sealing in 100% of the music coming from their media. Perfect for outdoor safety while jogging or biking, as well as for socializing in the gym, Intensity is the first in-ear headphone that uses Monster’s new patented earpipe design. Because users don’t have to worry about having to remove the headphone to hear traffic or chat with workout buddies, Intensity adds a whole new level of convenience and versatility to the athlete’s headphone, without any sacrifice in audio quality. Additionally, Monster’s ultra-durable cable and reinforced “strain relief” keeps the cord stays safe and secure, even during rigorous workouts.
iSport™ Strive: The Ideal Entry Level iSport™ Solution
Like Intensity, the entry level iSport™ Strive, Monster’s most affordable high performance sport headphone, features a striking and ergonomic new aesthetic, with a newly designed flexible and super comfortable ear tip. The semi-open design of Strive also allows users to hear what is going on around them, while still enjoying the superior sound quality. Strive’s compact design allows them to be fitted comfortably in the outer portion of the ear, but not inserted in the ear canal itself. Strive is every bit as durable, washable and submersible as Intensity. Notably, Monster’s innovative Control Talk Universal™ is standard on the Strive, making it compatible for Play/Pause for most media players and smartphones.
Athlete-Friendly Innovations Throughout the iSport Line
All Monster® iSport™ headphones feature a variety of innovative advancements that set them apart from the rest. Monster® iSport™ headphones address one of the most common and nagging issues faced by active headphone wearers – having their in-ear headphones slip out during strenuous use. Monster solves this problem with a unique patented proprietary in-ear clip anchor system, which fits the curve of the inner ear securely. This key innovation provides maximized comfort and an unprecedented no-slip fit that helps ensure that the headphones will not fall out and stay in the ear no matter the conditions.
Striking Design; Super Tough Build Materials
Monster’s tough construction of iSport™ headphones and their super durable build materials allow users to enjoy an uninterrupted, world-class music experience while they run, jump, cycle or even hit the ski slopes. Most importantly, they are fully washable, allowing sports enthusiasts to easily clean them so they are ready to go for the next work out.
