SYDNEY, JULY 2010 – Monster, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-performance headphones, is combining astounding audio performance with unprecedented affordability in its new line of Jamz™ in-ear headphones.
The line is led by the virtually indestructible flagship Jamz, which were honoured with a prestigious Innovations 2010 Design and Engineering Award by the Consumer Electronics Association. Monster’s new Jamz headphone line also includes the super compact, entry-level Lil’ Jamz™ .
With their solid metal construction and advanced Monster audio-enhancing technologies, Monster Jamz and Lil’ Jamz are the ideal personal listening solution for today’s on-the-go consumer. Engineered to the same exact standards as all high-performance Monster headphones, Jamz offer users an opportunity to experience their music with deep, powerful bass and crystal clear high frequency response.
“Key to the high-performance audio of Jamz is their 100% solid metal construction,” said Geoff Matthews, Managing Director of Monster’s Australian distributor Convoy International.
“In addition to making them virtually indestructible, the patent-pending machined-billet metal housing cancels unwanted vibrations for the purest sound imaginable. Jamz’ scratch- and corrosion-resistant chrome finish is a more durable surface than anodisation, plastic or paint and ensures that the headphones maintain their attractive styling and brand new look.”
To further enhance the audio performance, Jamz come with advanced Monster cable, featuring patented technologies for accurate and clear audio, with 24k gold contacts for maximum signal transfer and corrosion resistance. A rugged cable strain relief system protects the cable and withstands heavy-duty use, and a cable management clip controls and keeps weight off the headphones, ensuring they stay in the user’s ears.
The new Lil’ Jamz headphones give today’s fast-paced digital generation an even lighter and more compact option than their “big brother” sibling Jamz – without sacrificing any of the great Jamz performance or features. Featuring a vibrant black chrome finish in an ultra-portable design, Lil’ Jamz are just as sonically pleasing as Jamz, and just as stylish.
Finally, because proper fit is essential to the performance of in-ear headphones, all Jamz headphones come with multiple pairs of different sized eartips. The custom-designed eartips provide the superior isolation needed to shut out the outside world. In addition to the added comfort, the eartips remain snugly in the ear, even while the user is active.
Noel Lee, CEO of Monster, noted: “At Monster, we believe life is too short to listen to bad headphones, and our design approach is that they should be able to reproduce the same real music experience that comes from a great pair of full size speakers.”
“Jamz headphones are engineered specifically to provide this big speaker experience in a compact in-ear headphone – without the cost usually associated with such a high-quality option. Our line of high-performance Jamz headphones deliver the full dynamics, range, and emotional impact of today’s music, whether it’s hip hop, jazz, vocals, classical, or rock.”
Jamz and Lil’ Jamz are available now at Harvey Norman, Apple and selected independent Monster retailers for recommended retail price of $139 and $99.95 respectively.
