These headphones have the looks of a veritable accessory for your head and ears. In addition, they fully achieve their purpose and become much more than a fashion statement. If you are tired of headphones made of plastic, you should get these titanium brushed beauties and enjoy their unconventional shape. The rectangular ear cups are robust and look quadratic. However, you would be surprised of how light-weighted they are. I must admit I would not have guessed that the brushed titanium finish can be so stylish and discreet at the same time. Monster is not among the most consecrated headphones manufacturers, but they have generated a flow of positive feedbacks lately. They introduced the optional interchangeable headbands too. You can opt for headbands with country colors or simple colors.
The noise cancellation feature was disappointing at first. However, I found out that the burn-in period of time required for the sound to get better is also applicable for the noise cancellation feature. There is a difference between the noise level when you wear these headphones and the noise level when you do not. The reduction of the sounds that come in and out is definitely noticeable, but it is not close to 100 percent. Remember that you must turn on the noise cancellation feature.
The sound quality is just wonderful. I do not know what you all audiophiles think about this, but I have the feeling I am hearing a lot more than I was hearing before. This new face of music given by Monster Inspiration is simply inspiring. If you want to get high on bass, this particular pair will do the trick for you. The mix of lows, mids and highs is fluid. Your music will have a more texturized sound when you listen to it with these babies on.

Effective noise cancelling feature – Once you switch this on, you will feel more isolated from the outside world and the quality of the sound will improve.
Clear and crisp sound – Some might think the bass is a little on the heavy side, but I personally think that every sound is enhanced and there is a nice balance between the instruments.
Comfortable and not too heavy – Considering the brushed titanium additions, these headphones still stay normal-weighted. The leather cushions are soft and feel good on my years.
