For you runners out there, I can understand why you wouldn’t want to listen to your surroundings during your fitness sessions. I don’t actively jog, but walking to work or university listening to nothing but cars driving past and the occasional horn does get a little tedious. This is why a decent pair of Monster headphones are essential.
Don’t worry though, Monster has you covered. They’ve recently teamed up with Adidas – the clue is in the name – to create a solid pair of headphones aimed at sports and fitness thanks to Monster’s patented sports clip that help secure the buds in your lug hole.
The actual earpieces are made of ultra durable rubber, meaning they won’t pack in after a few running sessions. They’re also sweat-proof, because as we all know, ears sweat right? But in all seriousness, they’re extremely well-built to withstand those pesky drops of water that can drip from your hair.
Monster have included their Pure Monster Sound Technology in all models, meaning sound in guaranteed top-notch. However, through my experience of listening to mainly rock and heavier guitar music, the bass is a little too heavy. It’s in standard Monster fashion, but it works really well if you’re into your punchy basslined EDM. I experimented with my built-in EQ on my old skool iPod Classic and found that if I reduced the bass frequencies it made the quieter high frequency sounds more prominent.
There are various models to the Monster Adidas Sport Response headphones. The first in their new range of buds come in at around £39.95. The other options include built-in microphones for taking phone calls which is respectively £59.95. The Supernova model, which offer complete outside noise isolation you will find at £89.95.
