Athlete-Friendly Innovations In the Entire Collection
Monster® iSport® in-ear headphones feature a variety of innovative advancements that set them apart from the rest. iSport® headphones address one of the most common and nagging issues faced by active headphone wearers – having their in-ear headphones slip out during strenuous use. Monster solved 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 helps ensure the headphones will not fall out no matter the conditions. iSport's durable construction and materials allow users to fully wash them; sports enthusiasts can easily clean them for the next workout.
Bluetooth Capable iSport® Freedom: The Perfect Wireless Workout
Even with the popularity of in-ear sports headphones, many active lifestyle and fitness enthusiasts still prefer the traditional 2-channel headphone form factor for comfort and durability, or simply because they may prefer the on-ear fit to an in-ear. The iSport® Freedom is the first 2-channel on-ear music headphone built using rugged, anti-microbial and sweat-resistant materials, providing users with the best of both worlds.
Freedom delivers seamless and superb wireless audio, so active users can focus on their workout without ever having to worry about tangled wires or any disruption. In addition to pioneering the inclusion of AAC and APTX for an unmatched wireless music performance, Monster meticulously engineered Freedom's advanced microphones to deliver the clearest possible phone conversation performance for total versatility in the office or in the gym.
Freedom's design is ideal even for intense workouts, and the specially designed antimicrobial soft ear cushions ensure bacteria-free comfort. Its lithium polymer rechargeable battery provides 30+ hours of music playback and calls. Notably, the button layout on the earcups has gone through extensive user interface testing in order to ensure that making calls, as well as play, pause, track and volume controls are all simple and intuitive. The iSport® Freedom wireless headphone also includes a 3.5m ControlTalk Universal™ microphone cable for direct hardwired use for smartphones if users with to use their headphone with a direct, non-wireless connection.
iSport® Victory™ - Pure Monster Sound™ for the Everyday Athlete
For the most dedicated gym and fitness buffs, the in-ear flagship iSport®Victory™, a 2013 red dot design award winner, is the follow-up to Monster's acclaimed iSport® Immersion™. With its patent-pending airtight OMNITIP™, iSport® Victory™ offers ease of fit for any ear shape, while an improved, anti-microbial soft earhook design achieves the most secure fit – perfect for rigorous exercise routines. The result of all the iSport® Victory™ innovation is an added level of pulse pounding audio that no other sport headphone can deliver. With its powerful Pure Monster Sound™ and superior noise isolation, iSport® Victory™ users can stay focused during intense workouts and extreme outdoor sports.
iSport® Intensity™: Hear Some Ambient Noise, Without Sacrificing Audio Quality
The iSport® Intensity™ is the first Monster® in-ear headphone designed to allow users to hear some ambient noise while sealing in 100% of the music coming from their media device. Ideal for outdoor safety while jogging or biking, as well as for socializing in the gym, iSport® Intensity™ is the first in-ear headphone that uses Monster's new patented earpipe design. Because users don't have to worry about having to remove the headphone to hear traffic or chat with workout buddies, iSport® Intensity™ adds a whole new level of convenience and versatility, without any sacrifice in audio quality. Additionally, Monster's ultra-durable cable and reinforced "strain relief" keeps the cord secure, even during the most rigorous workouts.
iSport® Strive™: The First In-Ear Sport Headphone That Doesn't Go in Your Ear
Monster's most affordable high-performance sport headphone, iSport® Strive™ is designed for users who want the sonic impact of an in-ear headphone but without the invasiveness of the traditional in-ear form factor. Like iSport® Intensity™, the entry-level iSport® Strive™ features a striking and ergonomic new aesthetic, with a newly designed flexible and super comfortable ear tip. The semi-open design of iSport® Strive™ also allows users to hear what is going on around them, while still enjoying superior sound quality. iSport® Strive's compact design allows them to be fitted comfortably in the outer portion of the ear, but not inserted in the ear canal itself. iSport®Strive™ is every bit as durable, washable and water resistant as the iSport®Intensity™ and iSport® Victory™. Notably, Monster's innovative Control Talk Universal™ is standard on iSport® Strive™, making it compatible for Play/Pause for most media players and phone calls on user smartphones.
