Key Innovations for a New Type of Active-Lifestyle Headphone
Monster iSport In-Ear Headphones feature a variety of innovative advancements that set them apart from all others. Noise isolation allows listeners to block out distractions, focus on their sport and get into “the zone.” Immersion’s patented proprietary in-ear clip design fits the curve of the inner ear to anchor securely and provide maximize comfort that won’t interfere with glasses, goggles, or helmets.

Just as importantly, 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.

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 focus on what they’re doing – not on whether they should be protecting their headphones!

Sophisticated Audio Technologies: “Because the Music Matters”
To create the ultimate sports headphone with the distinctively superior Monster sound, the company utilized a variety of sophisticated audio-enhancing acoustical headphone technologies. To ensure optimum sound quality at all times, for instance, iSport In-Ear Headphone feature a tight, nearly perfect audio seal – ensuring that all the music stays in your ear where it belongs. Like all Monster headphones, the super tough iSports are designed to deliver unprecedented levels of headphone audio performance with extreme clarity, deep bass and full power that had been lacking in conventional headphones.

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 Immersion, 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 Immersion 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.”

Monster’s new iSport Immersion headphones also feature the company’s ControlTalk an innovative control system that gives users music and movie playback control of their Apple® iPad™, iPhone™. The integrated high-grade microphone and answer button allows users to access their music and answer phone calls without having to reach into their pocketbook, backpack or pocket.
