Monster Inspiration Hublot headphones

This morning Monster announced the Inspiration Hublot, its new premium luxury over-ear headphones. We're sure our readers are familiar with Monster and its popular headphone products, but if you're unfamiliar with Hublot, it's a company that stands as one of the most awe-inspiring watchmakers in the world. The end result of the collaboration between the luxury watchmaker and the premium headphone make is the Inspiration Hublot.

So, what makes the Inspiration Hublot so great? According to Monster, these luxury noise canceling headphones are constructed with precision parts and fine-tooled machining with a black and carbon fiber appearance. Monster is also debuting its new Enigma Audio Engine with Inspiration Hublot, which it says focuses on delivering crystal clear sound and a realistic soundscape, alongside "the world's most advanced digital noise cancellation," which uses two microphones--one for handling constant noise, and the other for intermittent sounds. The headphones also support A2DP for wireless Bluetooth with AAC and APT-X codec support, and direct USB audio. The headphones also include two audio cables--a standard Monster Pro Link, and a ControlTalk Universal, which allows you to control volume, answer and take phone calls, etc.

As for when you can get your hands on them, the Inspiration Hublot headphones will hit Hublot stores across the world this summer, just make sure you start saving, because they'll cost 1,750 Euros--or $2,276.

2008 Holiday Gift Guide: Monster Beats by Dr. Dre studio headphones

Beats by Dr. Dre StudioWe’ve been big fans of the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones since we first got our hands on them. They’ve got a nice style, with a hip-hop vibe, and a fantastic noise-canceling feature. The earcups are surprisingly comfortable, and fold away on the inner side of the glossy black headband, which can then be stored in the included case. The Beats by Dr. Dre studio headphones do requier two AAA batteries for the noise cancellation feature, and you’ll get about 50 hours of listening time on a pair of those. They also include two audio cables, both of which even fit into the original headset jack, and one of which also includes a mic, so you can take calls. The Monster Beats by Dr. Dre stereo headphones can be found on Amazon for $349.
