Monster DNA On-Ear Headphones


The partnership between Monster and Beats that began with the Monster Beats by Dr. Dre is no longer, and now both brands make their own exclusive headphone models. The most recent from Monster is the DNA On-Ear headphones ($229.95 direct), with a...

Quality audio performance at moderate listening levels, with sculpted bass and treble. In-line microphone and controls for mobile devices. Cable is removable, ships with a spare
