Music with the clarity of diamonds
Multi-talented engineer, songwriter, producer and actor JYP in collaboration with the technology experts at Monster, has created a headphone that’s world-class in sound.
 
 
The thrill of diamonds. The emotion of your music.
Nothing is more desired than diamonds: the clarity, the perfection. And no headphone in the world marries haute couture and audio performance like Diamond Tears™ by Monster. They are the high-definition on-ear headphones that let you hear your favorite songs just as the artist created them in the studio. Clear. Involving. Impactful. Edgy.
 
 
The ultimate in fashion meets the ultimate in sound.
The Diamond Tears™ high-definition headphone was created much like an object of high fashion -- designed with unfettered imagination and only the finest materials. When you're hearing Diamond Tears™ you're hearing your music the way you've never heard before: through proprietary driver technology and the cut-no-corners materials required for high-performance audio. It was the only way to deliver the ultra-accurate response that Diamond Tears™ promises.
 
 
The power of great beauty.
Diamond Tears™ uses no amplification or noise cancellation circuitry that adds other frequencies and colors the sound, so you hear the music, potent and uncompromised. Thunderous, riveting bass. Thrillingly precise mids. Dazzling highs. Imagine the clearest, most compelling music system you've ever heard. Now imagine wearing it. 
 
 
Like a fine example of haute couture -- a marriage of style and comfort.
In a high-performance headphone, fit is everything. To delivery extreme clarity and hard-driving bass, the foam earcup density must be of the highest quality and embrace you effortlessly to keep the noise out and your music in. From the first moment you try on Diamond Tears™ -- even before you turn on your music -- you feel the physical blend of comfort and technology that must exist for high-definition audio performance to occur.
 
 
Made by artists, for those who value beauty in their life.
JYP is redefining the sound of pop music all over the world. Through his music, his movies and his supergroups like Wondergirls and RAIN JYP has delighted the world with his mixture of edgy fashion and irresistible sound. He and the technological artists at Monster have worked relentlessly to create an unrivalled sound and fashion experience.
 
 
High-performance music headphone lets you feel like you are in the studio with the recording artists

Important Monster® Performance and Safety Tips
Listen Responsibly

To avoid hearing damage, make sure that the volume on your music player is turned down before connecting your headphones. After placing headphones in your ears, gradually turn up the volume until you reach a comfortable listening level.

Noise levels are measured in decibels (dB), exposure to any noise at or above 85 dB can cause gradual hearing loss.

Monitor your use; hearing loss is a function of loudness versus time. The louder it is, the less time you can be exposed to it. The softer it is, the more time you can listen to it. Refer to the chart* below.

This decibel (dB) table compares some common sounds and shows how they rank in potential harm to hearing.
SoundNoise Level (dB)Effect
Whisper30Very quiet
Quiet Office50-60Comfortable hearing levels are under 60 dB
Vacuum Cleaner, Hair Dryer70Intrusive; interferes with telephone conversations
Food Blender85-9085 dB is the level at which hearing damage (8 hrs.) begins
Garbage Truck, Cement Mixer100No more than 15 minutes of unprotected exposure recommended for sounds between 90-100 dB
Power Saw, Drill/Jackhammer110Regular exposure to sound over 100 dB of more than 1 minute risks permanent hearing loss
Rock Concerts (varies)110-140Threshold of pain begins around 125dB
"....a typical person can safely listen to an iPod for 4.6 hours per day at 70% volume."
"....knowing the levels one is listening to music at, and for how long is extremely important."
From http://www.cbc.ca/health/story/2006/10/19/music-earphones.html
Get the most out of your equipment and enjoy great audio performance even at safe levels.
Our headphones will allow you to hear more details at lower volume levels than ever before.

Use Responsibly

Do not use headphones when it's unsafe to do so - while operating a vehicle, crossing streets, or during any activity or in an environment where your full attention to your surroundings is required.

It's dangerous to drive while wearing headphones, and in many places, illegal because it decreases your chances of hearing life-saving sounds outside of your vehicle, such as another car's horn and emergency vehicle sirens.

Please avoid wearing your headphones while driving. Use one of Monster's FM transmitters to listen to your mobile media devices instead.

Learn how to establish a safe listening level and review other important safety guidelines from the Consumer Electronics Association at www.ce.org and the Deafness Research Foundation at www.drf.org.
