They will retail for about $279 when they go on sale in October and 8 different headband styles will be available at launch that should speak to your inner Carrie Bradshaw.
Head Monster, Noel Lee says that Monster has plans to use these headphones to help promote more fashion designers. So you can expect to see more fashion headphone collaborations from Monster in the future. One such collaboration includes a pair of Diesel headphones that should land soon.
“Our new Inspiration headphones are all about feeling inspired. Just like some days you wear jeans and some days you might wear a tuxedo, these headphones let you choose whatever look or feel you want to express yourself, and feel ‘inspired.’ We all have many different facets of our personalities, and with Inspiration we can express ourselves exactly the way we want, wherever and whenever we want – and of course enjoy the kind of ‘higher definition’ music listening experience that only Monster headphones deliver.” – Noel Lee
