I sit on an old, faded green bench as I’m writing this post and 7 yards away from where I rest is a girl, she must be no older than 4 years old and she’s crying with tears falling down her now red face, her ice cream dropped. A cyclist zoom passes me leaving nothing but the dust on his wheels to fall off and the leaves which gently lay to abruptly awaken, scatter and fly. A mob of firetrucks scream down the street, I later find out a nearby apartment was on fire. Then the 2:33 PM flight to New York from wherever has only 5 minutes left till it lands, my body felt the planes vibration. You see, I can’t hear these things, but only recreate and play the sounds in my head from past experiences. I escape from everything, leaving my work and all the stress that comes with it behind. Eyes closed I now imagine myself alone, escaping the city and the racquet it possess; it’s just me, myself and music. I feel enclosed by strong yet soft sound waves that just sends chills through my ears, down my spine and finally reaching my feet which is found tapping away all on its own. The Monster is in control.
We are introduced to truck loads of mediocre headphones each year and are so oblivious on how true HD music should sound like, but I’m here to change your perspective on music and how we should listen to it. Before we talk about the headphone itself I want you to understand the Monster technology. Installed into this pair of headphone is the titanium-coated driver technology which gives us an experience unlike any other product can offer. This technology developed by Monster themselves, helps to really feel the beautiful highs, smooth mids and that dirty bass we all desire.
With the soft grip of the ear cups or her hands, Lana del Rey whispers, arousing my senses that are possessed by the pinna, as if she is trying to seduce me from a far. Her voice is soft yet crisp, clear yet just an MP3. I’ve become sucked into the music, fallen for her and she doesn’t even know my name. I truly feel like a different person when listening to music, but when bumping with the Diesel by Monster headphones, not only am I different, I feel like a new person, I know it sounds cheesy but it’s the truth. Imagine if you will a surround sound system and you’re standing dead center, now vision yourself walking and the system is just following you. Now I know, that’s the worst analogy ever, but that’s what it feels like. I think what I’m trying to say is that sometimes you don’t even notice the headphones are on you and well.. there are speakers floating around you.
The headphone consists of mostly advanced plastic and is treated with multiple sharp angles to create an abstract look and is finished with a high gloss. It also has a hint of aluminum in different placements, the most dominant is the brushed aluminum where the Diesel logo can be seen. Surprisingly it’s much smaller than I would have expected and very light compared to the others I have. Yes the quality is great and the design is superb, but what I’m most impressed about the Monster x Diesel headphone is how comfortable it is, truly has a nice seal and leaks little to no sound. Also a great little addition to the whole package is the Monster control talk cable which has instead of your traditional circular wires a triangular one and what this does is that it helps not having to untangle your wire at all. It’s great.
We are introduced to a new type of sound today, presented in front of me is a headphone unlike any other. A headphone that bridges the gap between fashion and technology, style and function, Diesel and Monster. This product is dare I say, amazeballs!
