Overview: The Monster Inspiration headphones are stylish,
over-ear headphones with passive and active noise cancellation. Inspiration
headphones have interchangeable headband covers so you can match your mood or
style. The headphones come with three 50" cables: a mini-to-mini, one with
ControlTalk, and one with ControlTalk Universal.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC): The Monster Inspiration
headphones use dual microphones to pick up and electronically cancel ambient
noise, leaving powerful, full-range audio, and prevent your music from
disturbing others. Active noise cancellation is powered by two AAA alkaline
batteries (included) inserted in the right earcup. Fully charged alkaline
batteries provide approximately 40 hours of active noise cancellation. You can
turn on/off ANC using the 2-way switch on the right earcup. Even when not using
ANC, the pillow-soft leather earcups give form the perfect seal to help isolate
Interchangeable Headbands: The Inspiration headphones were
designed with magnetic, interchangeable headbands to allow you to switch to a
different look when you want. Two headbands are included with the headphones,
and dozens of other colors and styles are available from the Monster Cable
Cable Selection: Three headphone cables are included with
the headphones. All cables are flat, 50" long, and have a straight 3.5mm plug on
one end (headphone) and a right-angled 3.5mm plug on the other end (device).
Their functions include:
- ControlTalk: The cable with the ControlTalk
remote/microphone is designed for use for use with iPod, iPhone, and iPad.
Playback controls include play/pause, next/previous track, fast forward/fast
reverse, and volume +/-. Phone controls include answer call, hang up call,
decline incoming call, use call waiting, and use voice activation features.
