    They worked great for about 6 months. used when i was cutting grass, the sweat runs down the cable and into the controls shorting them out. Only good if your sport is knitting or basket weaving. Sent them back twice and the cost to shipped them back to monster eroded the savings when i purchased them. I live 1/2 hr away from the wharehouse where they were shipped too but Monster insists they have to be shipped. Dealing with customer service was not too bad the firs time, not so good the second time. the second set lasted about a month. the third set I only use when I am basket weaving. will not look at another monster product, period.

    Good sound and quality especialy when on sale. Stays in ear with ear piece. Is not fully sound isolating.

    Bought two pairs, one for him and one for her. We both agree that although sound clarity is good overall loudness is NOT! Fit is decent and they are comfortable but I would like to stress that these are not noise canceling and do allow in outside sound, which is perhaps great for city jogging in and around traffic, however not MY first choice for the gym

    I'm on my way back to the store to return my 3rd set of these ear buds. Happy with the sound, happy with the fit, happy with the battery life, but...I use them for 2-3 months and then they just stop working altogether. Best Buy has been very good about exchanging them, but I'd rather just have a set that works and keeps working.

    cant believe 100+ dollars earphone can be that fragile. that earphone only works for the first time. and unable to connect to my phone or any other device afterward. Don't waste your time even tho bestbuy is refundable; don't waste your money if you are lucky (or bad luck) enough to have it works for few weeks.


  • Great, but died within 6 months

    I loved these, but within 6 months the left ear bud decided to output almost no sound at all while the right one is normal. Can barely hear anything from the left side. Basically useless now. Would not buy again.


  • Overall, not good

    PROS: -The sound quality is fine, and the different sizes are nice. -battery life is pretty good -micro-USB (semi-universal) charging plug CONS: -if the cord touches neck in a specific way, sound cuts out (almost like it's short circuiting) I thought this issue was just a bluetooth thing, and that it was actually my phone cutting out, until I did some experimenting. I left my phone perfectly still, and moved the wire around, and it would consistently cut out when i would touch the wire in multiple places -notification sound is maxed out all the time. I.e. no matter what volume you have the headphones set to, when you turn them on or off, or if the battery is low, it very loudly interupts at screaming a message at you. So if you're listening to music on low volume, and the battery becomes low, there's an ear piercing "LOW BATTERY", which also repeats once every 2 or so minutes until the thing dies. -The little piece used to "lock" the cord length in place is absolutely useless, and only holds onto one cord at a time, so it always just slips to the most extended. this wouldn't be much of a problem, if not for the next con: -the battery (and i'm assuming a weight on the other ear side) is extremely heavy, compared to the rest of the device. TL;DR Do not buy if you enjoy non-choppy music, and if you like to protect your hearing.


  • Great set of earbuds

    I've had these for about 6 months now and they work get. No issues with the battery except it is a bit large. Sound quality is excellent and although they do not completely block out environmental sound they do a very good job. Walking down the street you hear the sound of the music and not the everyday noises. They stay in you ears really well. Don't try to force them too far into your ear, these don't work like that. They just sit in the ear next to the ear canal. I have the wireless pair (which work great with an apple watch) and a wired pair for my desk at work. Both provide great sound. especially for the price. Watch out for sales and pick them up then


  • Love it!

  • Don't buy - Bad cusotmer service by Monster

    Worked well and sounded great but after a few months started to shut done and won't charge unless you reset them. I finally went ahead and sent them back to Monster for exchange. So far it's been over a month and I haven't seen them yet. When I contact them they reply with a generic email say they will contact me when it's sent. I will never buy another Monster product because of the bad customer service and poor quality.
