Last year audio peripheral maker Monster rolled out its new DNA headphone line, meant to go up against the products it made famous through its failed partnership with rapper Dr. Dre. This year the company's back with DNA Pro Wireless, Bluetooth over-the-ear headphones that will set you back $449.95 when they emerge in the second quarter of 2014.
DNA Pro Wireless sports active noise cancellation and has a buttonless touch-sensing user interface. If you prefer to have a direct wired connection, you can also use them as USB digital headphones (while simultaneously charging the internal batteries). Monster says the DNA Pro Wireless has embedded Apple Audio Codec (AAC) decoding.
What's more, when you fold up the headphones you'll automatically shut them off, so you don't have to fumble for an off switch. Unfold them and they'll power up and Bluetooth will activate; when you put them over your ears, a built-in sensor automatically activates the active noise cancellation.
Are you ready to shell out $450 for a set of active noise canceling over the ear headphones? Or is that too much to bear? Tell me what you think in the comments.
