Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Accessories, Design, Music

Monster Vivienne Tam Butterfly headphones

Damn, Monster Cable is continuing to flood the headphone market, this time going outside of their partnership, and instead doing a collabo with fashion designer of HP netbook fame. The product will be known at the Butterfly in-ear headphones, and each earbud will have colorful butterfly artwork on it, and it’s all finished up with a light gold-brushed finish. They are being positioned as both a music accessory and a fashion piece, which we guess kind of explains the $199.95 price point. So, who’s picking these up when they ship in April?

It’s the headphone we rock when we travel somewhere, and we even recommend them if you are looking for a new pair of over-ears.

Of course, the internals are exactly the same, so these $700 white Beats are all about style and high fashion. But hey, they are definitely fun to look at.

Hat tip goes to , who Monster tells me worked really hard on developing a custom finish that would stand up to bending and everything else people do with headphones. They look fantastic.
