Key Innovations Include Unique Super-Secure In-Ear Clip Technology and Design
Monster iSport In-Ear Headphones feature a variety of innovative advancements that set them apart from all others. For instance, they address one of the most common issues faced by active headphone wearers - the nagging problem of having their in-ear headphones slip out during strenuous use. Monster's iSport headphones solve this problem with a unique patented proprietary in-ear clip anchor system, which fits the curve of the inner ear securely. This key innovation provides maximized comfort and an unprecedented "no-slip fit" that ensures that the headphones will not fall out and stay in the ear no matter the conditions.
iSport headphones feature a special adjustable ear pipe on the headphone housing. Because the angle of the ear pipe is fully adjustable it contours to the unique angles of each ear, helping create a perfect seal when combined with the variety of included ear tips. Further enhancing their appeal for active listeners, Immersion™ headphones feature advanced noise isolation technology that allows listeners to block out distractions, focus on their sport and get into "the zone."
Striking Design; Super Tough Build Materials
Monster's tough construction of iSport headphones and their super durable build materials allow users to enjoy an uninterrupted, world-class music experience while they run, jump, cycle or even hit the ski slopes. Most importantly, they are fully washable, allowing sports enthusiasts to easily clean them so they are ready to go for the next work out.
Sophisticated Audio Technologies: Because the Music Matters™
To create the ultimate sports headphone with the distinctively superior Monster sound, engineers utilized a variety of sophisticated audio-enhancing headphone technologies. To ensure optimum sound quality at all times, iSport In-Ear Headphones feature a tight, custom fit audio seal thanks to the patented in-ear clip system and feature a variety of ear tips and the rotating ear pipe- these technologies ensure acoustic isolation that allows you to stay focused on your workouts and achieve your fitness goals. Like all Monster headphones, the super tough iSports are designed to deliver unprecedented levels of headphone audio performance with extreme clarity, articulation, and tight deep pounding bass that motivates you to achieve at your highest level of performance
Noel Lee, the Head Monster, noted: "Athletes often use music to motivate and get that extra drive to do their very best. The pounding of the bass and the rhythm of their favorite artists lock them into 'the zone' where they perform their best and win. To create iSport, Monster asked the question: 'What are the main problems with other in-ear headphones when used them for sports?' They often fall out, and they can get sweaty and dirty. Our iSport headphones stay in your ear where they belong, and you can wash them. Monster engineers literally worked up a sweat in order put the design through its paces - ensuring that they would not only stay in your ear comfortably during the most rigorous workouts, but also deliver the sound experience - what we are calling 'pure audio adrenaline.' If you're an athlete and the music matters iSport is your headphone. It's truly an incredible sounding product even without considering its capabilities as a fitness headphone. "
