Monster's Jamz 'phones 'virtually indestructible'
The Jamz headphones are constructed entirely of metal, and Monster claims they're virtually indestructible. They feature 24-karat gold contacts, and a scratch- and corrosion-resistant chrome finish. Also in the series are Lil Jamz, a smaller, black chrome-finished version of the Jamz headphones with the same basic construction. Also introduced is Monster's Mobile Jamz, which includes a microSD reader and USB adapter in a compact media drive for portable music playback and file storage.
Monster also announced a new Turbine model, the Turbine Pro Copper. According to Monster, the new headphones offer more pronounced low-frequency response and "reference-quality" sound.
The Monster Jamz headphones will be available later this quarter, and will retail for $100 for Li'l Jamz, $120 for the full-size Jamz, and $150 for the Mobile Jamz kit. The Turbine Pro Copper headphones are currently available for $400, or for $430 with Monster's ControlTalk.
