i never understand the relation between sporting brands and music. i mean, sure, some active lifestyle folks love to be entertained with music while they go about their fitness routines, but hardware with a sporting brand on it? that’s beyond me, but in any case that you are enamored by sporting goods people offering you headphones and stuff, then the Adidas Originals By Monster might be right up your alley. of course, the sporting goods giant won’t dive into the personal audio arena without some decent backing from big name and in this case, it is none other than Monster. two models are being offered: an in-ear model, as well as over-ear model. both models are built upon Monster innovative audio technologies, utilizing Pure Monster Sound technology that promised to bring “punch and dynamics of a live performance to headphones.”
the in-ear model features patented SportClip suited for active lifestyle usage, plus the usual noise cancellation quality and a sweat-proof design with antimicrobial ear tips. the over-ear headphones, on the other hand, boasts MusicShare dual ports for sharing what you are listening with another headphones, a foldable design for easy storage and transportation and pillow-soft ear cushions for superior noise cancellation. with the over-ear, it gets the iconic three-stripe design along the headband and Adidas logos on each earcup, while the in-ear buds get a subtle Adidas logo, one on each side. it all sounds (not literally, btw) pretty good, at least for Adidas fans, but they do come with quite a hefty sticker. expect the in-ear headphones to cost $129.95, while the over-ear example will set you back at $299.95 a pair.
