Monster iSport Freedom Headphones







Ok, so it's getting around that time to think of gift giving and trying to find that special something for those you love. I am here to talk to you about an amazing product I was sent and had to share with you. I am of course talking about the newest launch from Monster products, the iSport Freedom wireless headphones. During a fitness convention that was hosted here in Miami, I was notified by the brand that they wanted media to try them out. I was unable to go see them at their booth, so they were kind enough to send me a pair to test out and review. I am so glad that I did. These are a new kind of headphone with a sleek design and sound that is unbelievable. These are perfect for the fitness lovers as well as those looking for the ultimate in sound to watch movies or listen to music. They pair with any device that enables bluetooth so you have easy connection without the issue of cords, etc. I used them for walking, took them to the gym, etc. and was very happy & impressed with the quality. They had amazing sound they had no problem connecting, fading or anything. The only thing is that they can fit a little snug, but they were comfortable. The headphones themselves are made of a great rubber that won't damage with sweat, etc. They also seem very durable. You can charge them on your computer and if you do use the cord, it has a mic that you can use to answer a call on your phone. I can honestly say that they are a very well made, high quality product and would make the perfect gift for someone you love. Here are some pics & specs of the headphones so you can see for yourself:








NFL quarterback Drew Brees from the New Orleans Saints is also a huge fan of the iSport headphones. 



So I think this is definitely something worth checking out if you are a tech junkie like me! For more info or to purchase, go to the Monster site: www.monsterproducts.com
