Husbands & Headphones {Review & Giveaway}

 


What is it about men and headphones?  Maybe it's just my husband but he's obsessed.  At his job he's able to listen to music, or in his case, books on tape, errr...CD, errr...MP3?  Anywho, he listens to them for the better part of his 10-hour shift.  And he's always looking for "the good pair" because, you know there's a difference.  Me? I'm fine with the junky ones that came with my iPod even though they are uncomfortable and fall out of my ears every time I use them.  But that's neither here nor there. When I was asked to review these new Monster N-TUNE HD Headphones I knew I had to say "yes", for my husband.  Thankfully they sent me a candy apple red pair, even though the purple would have been more my style {can we all just picture my husband rocking a purple pair?}, because the day they came was like Christmas morning for Jimmy.  I think his words were, "finally a blog review/product I can actually benefit from" and he instantly put those bad boys on and headed out to do yard work.  His first comment was how lightweight and really comfortable they were.  He owns another pair of on-ear headphones and those are typically his "good pair" but they've now been replaced. The awesome thing about these headphones is not only that they come in super scrumptious colors but they are noise canceling.  So now when I yell for him and he doesn't answer he'll have a legit reason, I suppose.  But another selling point is that they have this cool feature called ControlTalk that allows you to pause your music when you get a phone call and answer it with the push of a button {on the cord}.  No more missing the best part of the song because your mom called!
You've seen the fancy headphones created by a very famous rapper and those bad boys run you a small fortune.  Seriously, we looked into a pair and I'm pretty sure I could buy groceries for an entire month for the same price.  But, these are also designed by a famous rapper, err at least I think he is {#nothip}, Nick Cannon aka Mr. Mariah Carey.  So you can expect the same booming bass at a fraction of the cost.  Is anyone else thinking these would be a great Christmas gift?  Christmas is only 92 days away, after all. Monster would like to make it a little bit easier to get your hands on a pair of these beauties so they are giving away 25 sets of Monster headphones {a $150 value}.  All you have to do is check them out, here, and come back and let me know what your favorite color is {I'm still partial to the purple}.
