King of Sport Tips
Im really liking Monster’s sport headphones these days. Their different from what we normally see in the market. A lot of companies right now are making sport headphones with an ear-hook style, like the Jabra Sport Wireless+ AE headphones. But, Monster is sticking with their unique style, which they call a “sports clip”, they have a patent on this design. On this particular pair of Monster iSport Strive In-Ear Headphones, I had the chance to go for a jog and test them out while being on camera. It was a freezing cold day but I still put them through some good use. You can check out the iSport Strive In-Ear Headphones in action, in my review video below:
Im very happy with these headphones, and definitely feel they out perform most sport headphones. Monster has put a lot of thought into the design of the iSport range, which caters amazing to their use during sports. These headphones are small, light weight, and also sweat proof. The cable is nice and short, it is also flat, making it anti-tangle efficient. The cable also has volume and track control, along with a microphone, to be used with your mobile device. The Strives’s look really cool also, the ones I have are vibrant sky blue, with a chrome backing.
I found the Monster iSport Strive In-Ear Headphones to be extremely comfortable, providing a very snug fit. I put them through some testing, which involved jogging, sprints, and running up strairs. Only at the very end of my testing, after running up some stairs, did the left ear-piece become a little loose, and required a slight adjustment. Although this was most likely due to the cold temperatures outside, because the cable was becoming stiff, it was freezing! Overall the iSport Strives performed very well in rough conditions.
The sound quality is pretty good on these sport headphones. I find monster has descent sound in almost all their headphones. They have very good bass, and a full rich sound. They sound very similar to the Monster NCredible NErgy In-Ear Headphones. Like most of the Monster range they would sound even better with more diverse mids and highs. For sports use I really liked them, and if your looking for a pair of sports headphones, you should give them a go!
