This past August, down in the SODO district of Seattle, was one of my favorite local tech events – GDGT. (Okay, so the show is actually held across the nation – but it’s still one of my favorite’s to attend without having to experience the chaos of a conference in Las Vegas.) I spent some time at Monster’s booth, which was undoubtedly one of the most popular. Not only did they give away headphones and their famous interchangeable headbands, but someone even asked, toward the end of the night, if they could take home the glass people-shaped heads at used to demo the headphones.
Yes, Monster is that cool.
They are so cool, in fact, that they offered to let me demo the Monster Diamond Tears, which are as sparkly and glitzy as a girl like myself needs. These headphones feature over-ear noise-isolating earcups and pillow soft ear cushions. While they aren’t noise-canceling like their Inspiration line, I was amazed at how well I could hear music and phone calls without all the background noise that comes with living (and working) in a downtown apartment complex. (In fact, just wearing the Diamond Tears alone isolated noise!)
If you’re looking for a GREAT pair of headphones – and are especially tired of those in-your-ear kind that always fall out (sorry, Apple, I don’t care how much time and money you spent in redesigning yours….) these are probably just what you’re looking for. Of course, if you’re a guy – or are looking for something a little less flashy – you don’t have to get the Diamond Tears.
But who wouldn’t want to walk around the office or at the airport with this kind of bling?
Disclosure: All opinions are my own (of course) and were not paid for. Monster did give me these headphones, though. Wasn’t that super nice of them?
