Key Benefits of iSport™ Headphones for Athletes
Among the many benefits Monster's iSport™ headphones offer athletes is that they are specifically designed for superior audio performance that does not fall out of the ear, giving athletes the drive to achieve more and win. Monster iSport In-Ear Headphones feature a variety of innovative advancements that set them apart from all others. For instance, they address one of the most common issues faced by active headphone wearers – the nagging problem of having their in-ear headphones slip out during strenuous use. Monster's iSport headphones solve this problem with a unique patented proprietary in-ear clip anchor system, which fits the curve of the inner ear securely. This key innovation provides maximized comfort and an unprecedented "no-slip fit" that ensures that the headphones will not fall out and stay in the ear no matter the conditions.

iSport headphones feature a special adjustable ear pipe on the headphone housing. Because the angle of the ear pipe is fully adjustable it contours to the unique angles of each ear, helping create a perfect seal when combined with the variety of included ear tips.  Further enhancing their appeal for active listeners, iSport headphones feature advanced noise isolation technology that allows listeners to block out distractions, focus on their sport and get into "the zone." 

Sophisticated Audio Technologies: Because the Music Matters™
To create the ultimate sports headphone with the distinctively superior Monster sound, engineers utilized a variety of sophisticated audio-enhancing headphone technologies. To ensure optimum sound quality at all times, iSport In-Ear Headphones feature a tight, custom fit audio seal thanks to the patented in-ear clip system and feature a variety of ear tips and the rotating ear pipe– these technologies ensure acoustic isolation that allows you to stay focused on your workouts and achieve your fitness goals.  Like all Monster headphones, the super tough iSports are designed to deliver unprecedented levels of headphone audio performance with extreme clarity, articulation, and tight deep pounding bass that motivates you to achieve at your highest level of performance.
