Want a pair of Monster headphones?

This post is brought to you by Monster Headphones and BlogHer.

Recently I was sent a set of Monster N-Tune Headphones to review here. Mine came in a really pretty shade of blue. So shiny and sleek– I wanted to pet them. I tend to use earbuds. I find headphones to be bulky and I don’t like not being able to hear a thing going on around me. Must not dull my Spidey momma-senses, ya know! You never know what will happen while you’re oblivious. But when I tried these lovelies on, my mouth hung open. Ohmygoodness. The beauty of the sound that comes out of these things. It’s no wonder I have been seeing headphones on people all over the place these days.

I tried them out for about an hour yesterday, while sitting in my bedroom working on a writing project, and I felt utterly enveloped in my own beautiful world. These things just wrap you in utterly luscious sound– I wanted to keep them on forever. The ear pieces sit on, not around your ears, which I found to be very comfortable, and the curved piece that connects the two earpieces is adjustable for a variety of head sizes.

I was planning to give them to my husband for his birthday in November, but I ended up giving them to him WEEKS early because I was so excited about them. And let me tell you, I loved them so much that it was more than tempting to keep them myself. Maybe he’ll share with me now and then!

I’ve got to say up front, the price point is painful. $150 is outrageous, in my book. But oh, the sound. Even cheapskate me was sorely tempted to spring for a set. If you’ve got a music lover on your Christmas list, and your budget is fairly generous, this might be something to consider– it would definitely be something that any music lover would enjoy. These things are durable and beautiful, and feel like they’re extremely high quality.

Now the really fun news: There’s going to be a giveaway of 25 sets of Monster headphones, valued at $150 each. All you have to do for a chance to win is to click over to the Monster Headphones page on Walmart.com and let us know in my comments which is your favorite NTunes color. All comments left on all participating blog posts will be combined and 25 pairs of headphones will be awarded from those comments. Winners will be chosen November 1st. So comment away, and good luck!

    I love the green color. Thanks so much for a chance to win! Several years ago I saved up birthday money and bought a pair of Sennheiser headphones on what turned out to be a screaming sale. I know that I got a good deal on them because they’re not working as well as they should these days, so I went to Amazon to price out some replacements and gulped at what it would cost to buy the same pair to replace them. Soooo, thanks for the chance to win! Good sound for my music makes me a happy camper!

  49. I like them all, but I think purple is one of my favorites!

  50. The blue ones looks lovely! I’d probably have to give time slots for use with everyone in my family! Thanks for the review, I’ll look into them for gifts.
