The One In Which I Tell You About My Monster Headphones

My headphones have been broken for a couple of weeks now. So, I’ve been doing what any mother in my position would do. I’ve been snaking my daughter’s old giant, pink headphones from her room while she’s at school and using them. They are awful, but they get the job done. However, my daughter is not too pleased with my solution to my Broken Headphones Problem. I almost always forget to put them back in her room before she gets home from school and she gets soooo annoyed when she goes to use them. She usually says something like “Mom, I don’t mind sharing, but you really need to get your own headphones!” Well, thanks to Monster, I didn’t have to go buy a new pair. They recently sent me a pair to review. I was happy for the opportunity, but not as happy as my daughter, who was all “FINALLY! Now you’ll leave my headphones alone!” haha. KIDS.

I’ve had a few days to use the headphones and here’s what I can tell you. They are extremely comfortable. I wear mine while working (and by “working” I mean “Facebooking”) and they feel fantastic. They’re lightweight, not bulky and feel really nice on the ears. I asked my son to try them on and the first words out of his mouth were “these are the most comfortable headphones I’ve ever worn!” (And it’s funny how every time I go to use them, I can’t because he’s using them. And he laughs and says “but they’re soooo comfortable!”) Untitled

The sound is awesome. I was totally impressed with the crisp, clear sound. I really love the way it handles the bass- it’s deep but doesn’t overpower the music. These headphones are designed for noise isolation and they seal out distracting noise so that allows you to get the full experience of the music regardless of your environment. A cool feature is the ControlTalk Universal. This is an In-line mic with controls that work with Androids, tablets and other devices. It allows you to pause the music directly from the cord so you don’t have to reach for your phone or device.

The headphones come in cool colors. (Mine are Candy Tangerine. They’re shiny, bright and I love them.) If you’re looking for a good, durable, comfortable pair of headphones, I would absolutely recommend these without hesitation. (And so does The Teenager.)

    Candy Red looks the coolest! I’ve never had a pair of headphones like this. I always use the ear buds that almost always hurt my ears.

  2. Anna

    I like the orange ones and the blue ones coming in at a close second. But the orange ones win because Y has them too. :) lol

  3. Janice

    After looking at all the colours, I’d have to say I like the same ones that you have – Candy Tangerine (with all other colours coming in a VERY close second)!

    It is so hard to pick! I would have to say Candy Green. I would so love a “good” set of head phones my kids can’t destroy in 3 mins.

  5. Sarah Mader

    I have been looking for new head phones to get!! I usually like to buy on reccomendation so this post might have done the trick! I like the candy green ones or the candy tangerine!!
    Thank you!

    Well the candy green OF COURSE! My husband recieved a high end set of headphones as a gift a few years ago and is tired of me and the kids running off with them. Then we all end up running around trying to find where the last person who used them left them. Constant game of ‘Headphones, headphones,, who’s got the the headphones?’ :)

  7. Alicia

    I love them all… well, not a fan of purple, but think I’d pick the Tangerine. No red. Wait, no green. Yes, totally all of them.

  8. Melissa

    Candy Purple! Even typing it makes me think of that crazy “Charlie and the Candy Mountain” video on YouTube though. Which I could totally watch while using these bitchin’ headphones! :)

  9. Amber

    I really like the green one…one of my favorite colors and it’s the worst color in my boys opinion! So if I win, I know they won’t use them! :)

  10. Amy

    I love the Candy Purple- I have seen these but have been leary of buying such a large set of headphones! But if they are comfy then- YEY!

  11. Katie Malinowski

    I have to say the Candy Tangerine as well – these would actually end up being a present for my oldest son who turns 13 on October 26, and whose favorite color is orange!!!

  12. Megan

    Well I do love the Candy Tangerine, but if I had to purchase some the mom in me who never ever can find her headphones because her husband or son has coveted them as his own, might go with candy purple!

  13. WendyB

    I was originally leaning towards Candy Purple, but I know I have a better chance of keeping them my own if I go with the Candy Tangerine!

  14. Kami

    Love every color but really love the Candy Green! Gorgeous! Great giveaway, thanks.

    Your husband is a rockstar relating to the post above this one! :)

  15. Connie

    I would love to win the candy blue one, so both my husband and I could share them, since blue is both of our favorite color.

  16. Sabrina

    Candy Purple!

    I recently started a new job and I’m on the phone A LOT, so I’ve been looking for good headphones with a mic and I love the ability to pause music with a touch rather than reaching for my phone.

  17. Katrina

    Candy Purple!

    I use headphones all of the time at work to drown out the co-irkers. I need new comfy ones!

  18. Hank

    Im starting go love the Candy Tangerine. Im really torn between Candy Tangerine & Candy Blue! Blue is my fave color & Orange is my 2nd fave, lol.
    They look so comfy too.

  19. souphead

    i need to stop saying my favorite color is purple when i’m so drawn to all things green.
    that was the long way of saying “Candy Green”

  20. Meghan

    Candy blue…and it would be amazing to not have to listen to the YouTube videos about Minecraft that my son is always watching! ;0)

  21. Jackie

    I had a hard time deciding because they are all great colors but I guess I’d have to say thst Candy Purple is my favorite.

  22. Jane Goodwin

    . . . if I had a set of lovely Candy Purple headphones, maybe my kids would believe me when I claimed they were MINE, and they wouldn’t disappear like every. pair. of. headphones. I’ve. ever. had. . . .

  23. Christine

    Oh the Candy Red for sure. Red is “the” neutral for my accessories…and that red is gorgeous!
