Monster iSport Strive


The exercise-focused Monster iSport Strive earphone pair is well-designed for your workouts, but audio performance isn't on par with the competition.

Affordable. Gets quite loud. Moisture-resistant design.

Light on bass and overly sculpted in the highs. Lack of seal with ear canal is great for runners but not ideal for audio performance, wearing at gym.

Conclusions There are several exercise earphones, both wired and wireless, that sound better than the iSport Strive, even in this budget price range. The issue here is the lack of a real seal at the ear canal—they're basically earbuds, not in-canal...

Monster iSport Strive review


Stylish, sporty-looking and safety-conscious buds with a fine sound

Solid, up-for-it delivery Balanced presentation Stylish; safety-conscious

Fit and ‘open’ sound won’t be for everyone Rivals have more clarity and expression

There’s a sense of openness in the soundstage and, as is promised, road traffic is audible beneath your music (as long as the volume isn’t turned to the max). Of course, ambient noise leaking in can distort the sound a little, but if that’s a...

Broke quickly


Sadly, I didn't pull the headphones out of the box for about 3 weeks, so when they broke, I was outside the 30 day return policy for defective merchandise to Newegg. I am actually on hold with Monster as I write this review. The clock is up to 23 mins...

As advertised, the iSport headphones fit perfectly for exercise and remain snug throughout vigorous workouts. The sound is also crystal clear

In less than 1 week of use, the iSport headphones started activating Siri on my iPhone repeatedly, sometimes as often as 3 times per minute. There is nothing more annoying during a run than having Siri interrupt your music over and over to tell you she...

Great sound, Bad cord


The cord on the end gets frayed within 4 months of use. I go to the gym 5-6x/week and i use the case to protect it and it will go bad. They have great sound but a lousy cord.
