Monster iSport Immersion and Gratitude Earphones

Monster, the company that brought you the Beats by Dre series, have just released details of two new sets of in-ear earphones. One set is aimed at the sweaty, sporty types whilst the others are for live music fans.

Whether you’re an athlete or a musician Monster have something coming just for you.

iSport Immersion

These were developed specifically for athletes who use music to keep them “in the zone” and happen to be completely washable – and sweat-proof. The iSport Immersion sounds like the perfect work-out partner for the Sony Ericsson Xperia active phone to me 😉

The iSport headphones come with the Immersion in-ear clip design that keeps the headphones in place and feature an adjustable ear pipe located right on the headphone housing. You also get Monster’s ControlTalk technology which lets you control audio and video playback from the headphones themselves. ControlTalk works with the Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, and features a microphone and answer button for hands-free chit-chat. The iSport Immersion come in black or blue.


Monster’s Gratitude buds have been created with the help of 8-time Grammy Award winners Earth, Wind & Fire.

The R&B funksters have helped engineer these inner-ear pleasers to keep the true harmonics of live music and the details of each note and instrument right on par with the real thing – they don’t look too shabby either 😉

Just like with the iSport earbuds the Gratitude headphones also feature Monster’s ControlTalk system, meaning you get hands-free calling or control playback on your iPad or iPod.

“You hear incredible articulation and detail with these headphones. It’s impressive!” said EFW lead singer Philip Bailey. “There’s amazing separation, [and] you can really hear the difference between my voice and Maurice’s. I clearly hear details in the music that I don’t with other headphones, especially the bottom end.”

The Monster iSport Immersion in-ear headphones are slated to arrive very soon with an RRP of $179, while the Gratitude in-ear headphones should become available in September and will no doubt cost quite a bit!
