Adidas and Monster launch line of World Cup-themed headphones

The World Cup gear keeps on comin’, and we say, “bring it on.” 

Adidas revealed that it has designed a limited edition “Country Colour” line of Cup-themed headphones as part of a collaboration with Monster. The $300 cans are available in four different color schemes – Brazil’s classic yellow/green/black, the U.K.’s red and white, Mexico’s green and red, and the red/white/blue of the U.S.

Monster and Adidas revealed earlier this year that the two would be collaborating to bring form and function together with new limited edition headphones. The alliance resulted first in the $250 “adidas Originals by Monster” over-ear headphones, which serves as the template for the newly revealed Cup headphones. They feature Monster’s proprietary MusicShare technology, which essentially takes the form of dual audio jacks that allow a friend to plug in and tune in to whatever you happen to be blasting at the moment. According to Monster, the other proprietary tech onboard the ‘phones, Pure Monster Sound, is a feature designed to bring high dynamics to the cans. Each pair is portable, and can be easily folded down to fit snugly within its included carrying pouch.

But to potential customers, the most desirable aspect of the Country Colour line could very well be the hallmark three-stripes style at the core of Adidas’ brand recognition. The limited edition Cup-themed cans are available now for $300 via Monster’s website, select airport retailers, and other global retailers, including John Lewis stores in the U.K.

Since everyone seems to be making wireless headphones aimed at active lifestyles these days, why should a powerhouse athletic brand like Adidas remain on the sidelines? The company's new audio line announced to coincide with this year's IFA show in Berlin looks to rectify that situation.

The $149 FWD-01 is a pair of around-the-neck wireless earbuds and the $169 RPT-01 is a classic set of wireless on-ear headphones.

The LG B3 Series OLED 4K TV in the living room.

This year's Prime Day deals are just around the corner, but LG is giving you the chance to get your shopping for TV deals done early with its Perfect Black Friday in July sale. Here's our favorite offer -- the 77-inch LG B3 OLED 4K TV for $1,800, following a $1,500 discount on its original price of $3,300. It's still not cheap, but it's rare to get an opportunity to buy an OLED TV for nearly half-price. If you want to take advantage of the savings, you need to complete your purchase right now because there's no assurance that the bargain will still be available tomorrow.

Why you should buy the 77-inch LG B3 OLED 4K TV
LG's Perfect Black Friday in July sale is a play on words for one of the biggest benefits of buying an OLED TV -- the ability to create perfect black levels, as the organic light-emitting diodes that generate all of its light can be completely shut off. Other benefits of the 77-inch LG B3 OLED 4K TV, as described in our OLED TV versus QLED TV comparison, include an extremely fast response time, wide viewing angles so you can watch from any corner of the room, less power consumption so you don't have to worry about shocking electricity bills, and better protection for your eyes so you'll still be comfortable even after hours of looking at the screen.
