The sound quality is great and they look amazing.
Only downside for me is that it clamps a little on my head (I do have a very, very large head), and will heard my ears a bit after a few hours.

The sound from these headphones is great, clear, crisp.

Color Name: Titanium Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I originally wrote this review as a comparative between the Monster Inspiration, Bose QC-15 and Sennheiser PXC-450 headphones. After spending more time with the Monster phones I have decided to completely scrap my original review and focus just on the Monster and Bose comparison. Bose is the "gold standard" of noise canceling headphones so comparing against them makes sense.

The Monster Inspiration headphone set is Monster's first foray into the realm of active noise canceling (ANC) headphones. At the price point ($350 full retail), Monster is putting their new product in very direct competition with Bose, the undisputed champion of ANC phones. It is very difficult to say which headset is better as it really depends on how the phones are to be used. Bose excels on some points where Monster is better at others.

Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)

When it comes to ANC, there is absolutely no question that Bose implements a much better and much more aggressive solution for ANC. These are the phones against which all others compare and these are the ones that most travelers would want on a plane. When I first turned on Monster's ANC function I was really disappointed as it seemed like they did not really help much at all in noisy environments. However, as I have used them more I have discovered that they do get better. There is apparently truth in the notion that headphones need a "break-in" period before reaching their true potential.

Once broken in, the Monster ANC isn't bad. It does work and it does cut ambient noise such as air handling units and computer fans to some degree, though Bose still filters out more sound.

Color Name: Titanium Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As a frequent flyer, I have tried just about every noise canceling headphone on the market. From the Bose® QuietComfort® 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Headphones to the Audio Technica ATH-ANC7B Active Noise-Cancelling Closed-Back Headphones to lesser known sub-$100 models like Creative HN-900 Noise Cancelling Headphones. Monster is new to the noise canceling headphone market, but by pricing themselves at the $300 level, they are staking claim to the market position held so long by Bose. While my reviews generally don't include price, the price is an important piece of the positioning and must be considered in totality with the package.

I hope you find this review helpful even if it is not entirely positive on the headphones. Many personal choices go into such a big purchase, and my hope is to provide some additional data points to help you make your decision. You can jump to the bottom to see my conclusion, or review each category I evaluated. Since most measurements are subjective to comparison, I used the Audio Technica and Bose QC-15 for most comparisons.


These are certainly the most fashionable and aggressive looking noise canceling headphones I have seen. Both the Bose and Audio-Technica look like nerdy pieces of technology with gray plastic housing and black bands. The Monster Inspiration look downright cool.

Style Name: Noise CancelingColor Name: White
First thing first! 300 bucks in a lot to pay for ANY set of headphones. Don't bother putting your family in debt for these because it isn't worth it for any set of headphones at this price point. Same goes for the Beats! Same goes for the Bose! You're paying for hype and if that bugs you then, I'm sorry, you shouldn't be looking at any of these overpriced cans in the first place. If your favorite word in the Oxford Dictionary is "value" then don't even read this review! Skip my review and watch random youtube videos. OK, now for my friends here who are seriously insane enough to shelf 300 bucks for headphones, Listen up! The Inspirations are it!

Beats Studios? Ha! I love Dre, I still have my NWA tapes, but I'm sorry, Studios are mud wrapped in shiny plastic that rely on how awesome those triple A batteries are inside them things! Soon as those things go, you got a great shiny set of dead-beats! The only reason I would ever recommend the Beats over the Inspiration is if you're reppin' that gansta' hip hop thug life! Beats are the FUBU of headphones. They come in so many colors to match your swagger, son! Word! I used to own a pair of Studios. I gave them to my mom so she can rep the streets! Hollaback, Ma!

Bose QC15s? I won't lie. These are incredible headphones, and the Active Noise Cancellation is the boss compared to anything Monster spits out. Unfortunately, they are like bowling shirts -- no style whatsoever. Trust me, there are countless nasty looking headphones that sound like diamonds trickling down the hands of God. So if you're hella' old and don't want to stand out but still wanna show the world that you can afford overpriced headgear then get the Bose QC15.

Now back to the INSPIRATION! Monster makes them.
