Music fans, on your mark. Ready, set, go! Here are two Sony wireless (Bluetooth) headphone sets that I recently I had the pleasure to test. They are the Sony MDR-ZX550BN and MDR-XB950BT products, each having a unique feature.

Create a distraction-free soundscape with the flick of a switch: good noise cancelling headphones allow you to turn down the world around you.

The QuietComfort 25 headphones by Bose accomplish this feat brilliantly: high-quality audio accompanied by top-notch noise-cancellation in a light and well-designed product. Commuting, working in a crowded cafe, air travel, (etc.) can all become peaceful activities.

I reviewed two pairs of Monster's headphones by testing them out over a few days in a couple situations; the first was running 2 miles at military pace at the gym with thumping techno on the gym’s in-house system. The second was just using them to do easy relaxing stuff;  at home listening to music, or walking the dog.



Review: Monster iSport Strive, iSport Intensity, iSport Victory and iSport Freedom headphones

by Blogger on ‎07-09-2014 10:14 AM - last edited on ‎07-10-2014 11:44 AM by Blog Editor in Chief


Friends, gather ‘round. We’re gonna talk headphones here in what is essentially two different reviews. First up: we’re going to talk about Monster’s iSport earbuds - I’ve got three models to cover: the Strive, the Intensity, and the Victory, all with varying levels of noise isolation. Second on the docket is Monster’s iSport Freedom, a very different beast indeed. All four models are made for listeners who are engaging in a more active lifestyle… and as someone who has developed a passionate hatred for headphones and earphones while working out, I’m bringing a skeptical eye to the table. 


I’m ready, Monster. Come at me, bro.
