Monster today announced two purple-colored Sound Machine headphones in collaboration with 19-time Grammy award-winning musician and producer Emilio Estefan, which are available in on-ear and over-ear versions. The headphones feature a striking new deep purple color and are Monster’s first-ever models designed with a special flair for reproducing the rich, percussive nature and vocals of Latin music and rhythms of the world.
Monster’s over-ear Sound Machine headphones offer professional quality audio performance from powerful 40mm drivers. In addition, they feature special DJ-designed swivel hinges with super durable metal housing caps and a detachable ControlTalk Universal cable. Tangle-free cables offer total ease of use, and the passive noise-isolation design seals out distracting sounds from the environment, so you enjoy the full impact of your music no matter where you are. The super-plush cushions on the earcups provide maximum comfort even during long listening sessions.
With their attractive styling and accessible price, Sound Machine on-ear headphones feature a host of innovative Monster technologies for superior performance and style. Their 30mm drivers ensure sonic excellence with all types of music, the lightweight on-ear design offers total comfort and ease-of-use, and the tangle-free cables make for hassle-free listening. Other key features include a low profile right angle connector for even more comfort and flexibility.
Both Sound Machine by Monster models provide listeners with the company’s breakthrough Pure Monster Sound, specially tuned by Head Monster Noel Lee. Pure Monster Sound uses Monster’s latest proprietary technologies and sonic innovations to bring the full experience of live music to music lovers and concert goers everywhere.
Noted Head Monster Noel Lee: The Estefan family is an icon to Latin music and has been responsible for introducing the pop world to using Latin rhythms as a backbeat. Emilio’s work and influence has earned the respect of musicians worldwide. I am a huge fan of Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine, and with these new headphones, we sought to create a sound that truly captures the heart and soul of that music, hence the name, Sound Machine.”
