There’s always been a lot of issues for those who want to listen to music while working out, running or just doing anything active. Headphones that go over the ear can be too cumbersome or heavy, while it can difficult for in-earphones to to stay sealed. Monster is trying to help fix that with the iSport Immersion.
The Monster iSport Immersion is a pari of in-earphone for athletes. It features a small extension from the earbuds to hold them into your ear so they won’t fall out. This should also help keep the seal while running. As with all sports headphones, the iSport headphones are sweat- and waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about damaging them that way. In fact, the iSport Immersion headphones are washable so you can throw them into your washing machine with your clothes to make sure they’re clean of all your sweat.
It is worth noting, however, that the demo I was given of the iSport had one bud that didn’t work after they were taking out of the washer. The right earbud produced no noise while the left one did, possibly because there was too much water in the right bud. The sound in the left bud was pretty good, though.
The Monster iSport will retail for $179 and will come out in July. They’ll be available in both blue and black.
