Monster and Beats by Dr. Dre has just introduced their latest collaboration – Beats Solo HD (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition Headphones that comes with a rather monstrous price poin of $229.95. Well, if you happen to have to dough to spare, why not – after all, it will be available online at HSN.com till March 1st, where a portion of each purchase will be channeled straight to the Global Fund to support AIDS programs in Africa. With such an altruistic intention when you bring one of these home, surely the missus can’t but approve this latest acquisition into your household? More on the Beats Solo HD (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition Headphones right after the jump.
This pair of specially commissioned headphones is touted to deliver all the sonic details that the artist behind the voice intends for his/her fans to hear. In a stock pair of headphones, none of the rich, full sound of today’s digital audio tracks can be fully appreciated, but this is where the Beats Solo (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition steps in, targeting those who live an active lifestyle and yet want to enjoy portable audio to the fullest. It will work just like all the other Beats by Dr. Dre Solo Headphones, where listeners are bound to be amazed by the type of music coming from something so compact and portable.
Among the features found would be Monster’s “ControlTalk”, an advanced on-cable feature which provides users with full control of their listening experience when using their device of choice, be it an iPhone 3GS, the entire iPod family or portable media players from other brands. With Monster ControlTalk, the headphone cable comes with a built-in high grade microphone and answer button which enables one to access their music and answer phone calls in a hands-free manner, doing away with the need to reach into one’s pocketbook, backpack or pocket. Bear in mind that not all BlackBerry models are supported, so you might want to be a bit more careful here.
