Three nights ago, Ronda Rousey used her signature armbar to become the first UFC Women's Champion--but did you notice her headphones? The Ronda Rousey headphones were mentioned time and again on Twitter and other social media channels, and if you've paid any attention to Gear Live and our CES coverage, you probably can guess what they were. In fact, if you can, you may just walk away with a pair of your own...and we've made it super-easy, as you can tell.
Here's a hint: They're Monster branded, and Rousey's win was truly INSPIRATIONal. We can't make it easier than that.

We got the opportunity to chat with Nick Cannon about the NCredible line of Monster headphones in the video below. The NCredible line includes a pair of over-ear DJ headphones called NPulse, on-ear headphones called NTune, and in-ear earbuds called NErgy. As you look at the cost of the various models, you quickly see that these are some of the most inexpensive headphones offered by Monster, which is important to Cannon, as he wants kids to be able to get headphones that are cool without breaking the bank. Find out more about the NCredible philosophy, as well as headphone fashion, in this video.
Monster and EA Sports have jointly announced the MVP Carbon, a pair of gaming headphones, which is a first for Monster. The MVP Carbon headset brings simulated 5.1 surround sound through 30mm drivers. Naturally, you also get an integrated microphone (removable) for chat, and a headphone amplifier that Monster calls the "Gamebox." Sugar Ray Leonard and Xzibit are working with Monster as ambassadors for the MVP Carbon, which go on sale in February for $269.95, and will be available in black and white, with glowing EA Sports logo. The MVP Carbon are compatible with Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii, and Wii U.

We give you a look at the Monster Gratitude in-ear headphones, a collaboration between Monster CEO Noel Lee and the band Earth Wind & Fire. Some of the highlights of the Gratitude in-ear headphones include unique noise isolation to keep the music sounding good and outside noise out. The headphones are tuned to make live music and instrumentals sound amazing, and fans of that style of music will love the Gratitude in-ears. The headphones also feature a flat cable design that makes it so that the cables don't get tangled, a ControlTalk in-line mic and volume control so you can use them to take calls with your smartphone, a premium rose gold finish, and two protective carrying cases. You can pick up the Monster Gratitude headphones on Amazon.
