Monster Jamz

jamz_glamMonster’s new Jamz headphone line includes the “indestructible” classic Jamz, the entry-level Lil’ Jamz, and the on-the-go Mobile Jamz. Let’s start from the top: The flagship Jamz in-ear headphones are made out of 100% solid metal—hence the indestructible tag—and scratch and corrosion-resistant chrome finish so you never have to worry about scuffing these earbuds up.

Monster says its Lil’ Jamz headphones “give today’s fast-paced digital generation an even lighter and more compact option” than most headphones with the same great Jamz performance and features. The Lil’ Jamz features a vibrant black chrome finish in an ultra-portable design.

The new Mobile Jamz offer users several interesting functionalities including Monster’s Mobile Media Drive that features a 2GB microSD Card and USB Adaptor and Mobile Media Manger Software.

“At Monster, we believe life is too short to listen to bad headphones, and our design approach is that they should be able to reproduce the same real music experience that comes from a great pair of full size,” says Noel Lee, Head Monster. “Jamz headphones are engineered specifically to provide this big speaker experience in a compact in-ear headphone – without the cost usually associated with such a high-quality option. Our trio of high-performance Jamz headphones deliver the full dynamics, range, and emotional impact of today’s music, whether it’s hip hop, jazz, vocals, classical, or rock.”

Monster Jamz in-ear headphones will be available for the following suggested retail prices: Jamz – (SRP: 119.95, $149.95 with ControlTalk); Lil’ Jamz” (SRP: $99.95, $119.95 with ControlTalk); Mobile Jamz (SRP: $149.95, includes ControlTalk).
