Another addition to Monster’s iSport range, these aptX Bluetooth wireless earphones are linked by a slimline cable that loops behind your neck. Fairly chunky wireless units come with a choice of mini-hooks (and buds) that squeeze inside your outer ear to keep them in place. There’s a mic and remote, too, which is compatible with Android and Apple phones.
We’ve no complaints with the fit. The removable ear hooks might seem a little unnecessary but do help keep the buds in your ears and they feel immovable once you’ve picked the right sizes. The cable is light and rests on your shoulders without bouncing about too much, though it is quite long so a hood or long hair might get in the way.
Monster’s previous association with Beats might have you assuming these are all about the bass but if anything these earphones sound a little prickly in the treble at times. But voices sound good, there’s plenty of detail and bass is agile.
STUFF SAYS: ★★★★✩
Expensive and a little edgy sonically but great fit and detailed sound
