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."
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.

    Comments about Monster® Octagon Over-Ear Headphones - Black - Multilingual:

    I use this at home and work, and occasionally when working out. It's very comfortable to wear even for an extended time.

    Sounds great and keeps the external noise out - something you'll appreciate in a loud gym - not that you want "silence", more like "I like working out to my own tune" - helps you squeeze in the extra effort :) Clear crisp with "natural" bass.

    If there was one bone to pick, it would be the "pouch" to carry/store them. With such a bold look, I think it deserves a bolder/sturdier pouch.

    Comments about Monster® Octagon Over-Ear Headphones - Black - Multilingual:

    If you are in the market for a great looking set of headphones that also sound great, look no further, especially if you are a fan of UFC or MMA. Not only are these good-looking headphones, but they are also comfortable all day and they sound fantastic.

    One feature I really like is the coiled audio cable. It is only coiled in about a 4 inch section by the left ear cup, but it adds so much flexibility to motion. One of my pet peeves is when a headphone cable gets stuck on something and pulls the headphones off your ear or unplugs from your audio source. This cable prevents that and it's a great feature.

    As a point of future product development, I would love to see these headphones with active noise-cancellation. The ear pads passively do a pretty great job (as far as passive noise-cancellation can do) of cutting out ambient noise, but for the price, these could and should include ANC in order to stay competitive with the headphone market in this price range

    That being said, it's a small consolation for a great product. The only other mild downside is that they don't really fold up. If you plan on wearing them around your neck when you travel or train, you're good to go. If it's important for you to pack them away in a compact case, then take that into account.

    All in all, I gave a 5-star review based on what the product IS, not what I might want to see added to it. For what it is, they are fantastic headphones with which I am very happy.
