Monster



So, funny story. I got home from work one day and there was a package waiting on the doorstep. I didn't think much of it because Peanut Head has been shopping on the internet, acquiring obscure little pieces and parts to make this or that thing work most spectacularly.

Sometimes don't ask don't tell is just a good policy for everyone involved.

It simplifies things.

And keeps innocent parties out of long drawn out conversations that perhaps they don't want to get into.

Nothing creepy, just the Peanut Head factor, in that much of what comes out of his mouth flies right over my head, leaving me unconscious in the process. And I love that he's smart, it makes me swoon, but sometimes having a conversation with him requires a substantial amount of background knowledge.

And then here's me with the attention span of a gnat, already getting off topic.

Anyway, so there's this box and I didn't even bother to look to see who it was addressed to, because I know I didn't order anything. So of course I ignored it, and Peanut Head came home and was acting all surprised that we had this box. Like he hadn't already had three of them that week.

I tell him "You must have bought something and you're doing so much shopping that you don't even remember what you ordered. You're pushing buttons and not knowing what you're even doing on that Internet, Peanut Head."

So he opens it and . . .


"SQUE-E-EEEEE-A-A-A-L!!! My headphones are here!" maybe came out of my mouth in stereo surround sound.

Peanut Head looks at me sort of startled and wants to know What Up with all the accusatory accusations I be flinging at him.

I explain, maybe too fast for him to follow, that I forgot that I took the BlogHer survey applying to review the Monster headphones. And they picked me!!!!

How lucky am I?

So lucky, let me tell you. 

So the deal is that I get to review the headphones and I get to keep them. These headphones are sweet too, so I'm way happy about it.

I don't do many reviews so I'm going to tell you straight up that this is genuine. I wanted to review these headphones because I use headphones a lot on account of I need to block out my noisy family so I can concentrate. Because I use them a lot, I've had a few pair and by now I really know what I want, need, and like in a good set of headphones. So here goes.

First of all, they are Monster N-Tune Headphones from the Candy COLOURS Collection, valued at $150.


Isn't the box pretty? It's so pretty, and the headphones are even purtier.


And they come in all these yummy candy colors.

They're not just pretty, they are super durable and well made. The box has a picture of the headphones being twisted, and a blurb stating that they are virtually indestructible. That very well may be true, but you won't see me testing that out. I'm going to trust that the team of middle school boys they must have had as quality control testers were thorough.

Personally, they caught my attention with the pretty, but next up on the importance scale came this.


The ControlTalk feature is one that I really appreciate in a good pair of headphones. I usually listen to my music on my phone, and with these headphones when a call comes in, my music stops and I can press the ControlTalk button to answer it. Plus, the microphone is built right in so my phone can stay in my armband. When I'm done with my call I press it again to hang it up. Not only that, but when listening to music I can adjust my volume with it, select play, pause, and go forward and back.

It's the neatest thing, really, and I would never buy a pair of headphones without this feature. It's that handy.

I also like that the cable jack can go in either earphone, so if you want the ControlTalk on your right, it can be on your right.

And I'm not going to irritate you and tell you how many shopping days there are 'til Christmas, but I'm thinking these would make an awesome gift for someone special. As you can see in the picture above, Zoe Bug thinks she should be getting these for Christmas.

Is it wrong that I want to keep them for myself though?

But then I really should give them to Peanut Head since he's my One True Love.

Only I'm having a hard time letting go now that I've bonded with them. After hours upon hours of wearing them in solitary bliss. Well, I wasn't alone, but it sounded like I was.

I hope I don't get pulled for my unprofessional, not technical review. But be honest, you know you want them now, right?

  3. Awesome headphones! I would surprise my husband with some if I win them, and if not, I might do it anyway. I like the orange or green ones. Actually, all the colors are great, I just think he would like the orange or green the most.

  4. Oh man, I love the blue ones! I need a good pair of headphones badly, so I'd be selfish and keep them all for me. And, Hello!?! NICK CANNON designed these headphones?! (OK, so I seriously don't even know who Nick Cannon is, but hey if it will help me tune out my four noisemakers it's all good!) ;)

  14. I would choose the candy purple. I've thought about changing my name to Pinky (remember the tough chic that The Fonz dated?); unfortunately there is no pink so purple is the next best thing to lead me to chicdom.

  18. LOOOOOVVVVVEEE these super cool colors! Candy Green would be the color for me. You regularly crack me up. This could have very easily happened in my house as it sounds like Peanut Head and my other half would get along really well since there is typically a box on my front porch many days of the week and I am not the one with the shopping problem...

  20. Ain't a thang wrong with candy purple! PLUS side bonus, if I get them in a girly color there is a chance that the little misters in my life might keep their grubby paws OFF! So you know, fingers crossed, fingers crossed! AND you are a hilarious rockstar. (Doesn't flattery help?) But really... :)
