The Monster Inspiration headphones are active noise cancelling over-ear headphones with precision drivers, high-definition sound, changeable headbands, and built in continuous play technology.
At stores such as JB Hi Fi they are proving extremely popular; the build quality is excellent and they deliver an exceptionally rich sound experience with good bass. You can also get a headband colour of your choice.
For many years Monster made the Beats by Dr Dre headphones and with the Inspiration, its knowledge gained in headphone design shows.
Every headphone comes with three cables; a Control Talk cable for operating music and phone calls from your iOS devices, a cable for Androids, tablets and other devices and a straight mini-to-mini cable for aircraft listening. They are also compatible with Skype.
The combination of excellent sound and solid build quality, plus an excellent accessory package makes this headphone well worth the investment.
The Inspiration comes in two versions — the $299.95 (MSRP) model with “passive” noise cancellation reviewed here, and a $379 model with active noise cancellation.
