Product Description

Product Description

The Monster DNA In-Ear Headphones (Black with Satin Chrome) are earbuds designed for high-quality sound that also feature an in-line mic and remote. Designed to prevent "earbud-ache", the DNAs boast an in-ear design that rests firmly in the ear without adding stress. The "flat-noodle" shaped cord has been engineered to prevent the tangles that commonly occur with typical earbud cord designs. In addition to comfort and convenience, the DNA headphones are also designed for quality sound, tuned for deep bass and a clear high-end.

I bought these cause I really liked my monster turbines, and they were on sale really cheap. I am really glad I got them on sale cause the sale price is all these are worth. If you're buying these full price you should look elsewhere, I liked my turbines and these are just plastic trash in comparison. They are decent, but for $120 you don't expect to get $40 sound. My friend has a pair of Sol Republic amps HD and they BLOW THESE OUT OF THE WATER IN EVERY CATEGORY. The more I think about it, I should have returned these headphones when I got them, but they were dirt cheap when I got them and now it's too late so oh well I guess. Hopefully this doesn't become a pattern for monster.

Not worth the price tag. Don't get me wrong, the sound quality is quite good especially for rap and anything with a lot of bass but that's about it. I got them for 50 bucks on sale and was disappointed by the terrible ergonomics. If you're standing, walking, or really anything besides sitting down, they fall out of your ears worse than any headphone I've ever owned. The volume control/skip/prev function doesn't work on anything except the iPhone and the so called tangle resistant cord is simply a joke. The Phillips in ear headphones I bought were way better quality and with a cheaper price too.

The ear bud tips come off easily and get stuck.

Numerous times, someone would come up to talk to me at work while I'm listening to music, and I would have to make them wait while I fish out the plastic bud from my ear canal. Not impressive. The last straw was having to go to the hospital to have one removed - I'm lucky my eardrums were not too damaged.

Bought these on the boxing dale sale and I enjoy every bit of it. There are a variety of ear buds, but I'm finding it difficult to find the right size, they keep falling out.

The best in-ear headphones for a great price Dec 6 2013
By Must have - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
First of I want to start of with the price , The price I got these for was really great considering I only paid 49.99 on Cyber Monday of 2013 . A deal like this is not to be passed . The design of these in-ear headphones are great They fit perfectly into my ear's with no pain after long period of usage . Unlike other in ear headphones these do not tangle this is because of there flat wire that will stop any of the cable to be tangled . The amazing packaging is great and it's easy to open without any need for scissors or a knife to open . over all it's a great choice to buy as a gift or as a upgrade from your old headphones

Solution for Fit Issue, Good earphones after buying foam tips June 18 2014
By Eug - Published on Amazon.com
Bought these at the airport because I was desperate for some earphones.

Overall, I loved the bass and sound on these earphones but I was having problems with earbuds falling out of my ears.
The design of the earbuds kept on making the earbuds fall with the slightest movement.
I tried using all the different tips that came with the earphones.
I was about to give up on these earbuds until I bought some comply foam tips.
I purchased the tsx200. The 200 line fits the DNA earphones.

I have been using these earphones with the foam tips for a week and the fit is much better.
Remember, you have to squeeze the foam tips, put them in your ear and then let them expand.
After using the foam tips, they stayed in my ear much better and increased noise isolation.

If you are having fit issues, get the foam tips and they will help

Great Quality, Great Warranty Service. Dec 10 2013
By Jacob R. - Published on Amazon.com
I love these earbuds. I'm no audiophile, but in my honest opinion, they are some of the best I've ever heard. The bass isn't too boomy, the overall clarity and quality is awesome. The tangle free cord does work, but it does not keep it from getting in full on knots (which doesn't happen often.) I got these as a replacement for another model that went out after 6 months. Sadly, the DNAs they sent me as a replacement for the other model just went out as well. But they agreed to replace those too so I should be getting yet another pair of DNAs free of charge (not including return shipping.) So extra brownie points to Monster for a great RMA/Warranty service.

Great overall EarBuds with even better build! Jan. 7 2013
By Orlando - Published on Amazon.com
These earbuds are ok, nothing too special. They sound decent but they look better. Nice design and awesome flat anti-tangle cable. Not very comfortable however.

-------------------
MONSTER DNA IE
-------------------
SOUND
*Highs 4/5
*Mids 3/5
*Lows 4/5

They sound good, very well balanced sound, not too bass heavy like those pathetic "Beats by Dre" earbuds. Mids and highs are good but not great.

COMFORT
3/5 - They were semi-comfortable. Lots of ear tips to choose from, I tried them all and all which too stiff for my enjoyment.

BUILD
4/5 - This is by far the strongest selling point of these. Awesome build and awesome flat cable.

QUICK REVIEW
I would recommend these to anyone that can pick them up at a local BestBuy or Amazon for under $100. The build quality on top of good balanced sound makes these worth the cost.

-------------------
CREATIVE AURVANA 3
-------------------
SOUND
*Highs 2/5
*Mids 2/5
*Lows 0/5

As far as sound goes, they are simply awful in every way. I broke these in for over 72 hours and they sound like crap still. Lows are non-existent, mids and highs are ok but nothing special, nothing a $10-$10 SkullCandy earbud can't do. In fact, the new Apple Earpods are so much better and they are $29.

COMFORT
1/5 - While not the most comfortable earbuds, they refused to stay put under the slightest movement unless I shoved the earbud deep into my ear causing pain to my ear and excess pressure in my ear.

BUILD
1/5 - No anti-tangle cable/cord, thin cheap cable, plastic build.

QUICK REVIEW
All I can say is, GARBAGE. DO NOT BUY.

*Highs 5/5
*Mids 5/5
*Lows 4/5

As far as sound goes, these out perform all the earbuds in this review Simply amazing.

COMFORT
4/5 - While not the most comfortable earbuds, they also weren't the least comfortable.

BUILD
3/5 - No anti-tangle cable/cord, really, ugh.

QUICK REVIEW
Wow is all I can say. Amazing sound, amazing build quality, my only gripe is yet again they do not have anti-tangle cable. All in all, these earbuds surpassed and easily outperformed all the others in this review. If you love sound, audiophile or not, you have to try these.

THINKSOUND TS02+MIC

SOUND
*Highs 5/5
*Mids 4/5
*Lows 5/5

Wow the sound on these are something else. Very crisp, clear, loud, the attention to detail in the highs simply amazed me. I heard highs on these that none of the other earbuds could reproduce, simply amazing.

COMFORT
4/5 - While not the most comfortable earbuds, they also weren't the least comfortable.

BUILD
3/5 - No anti-tangle cable/cord, really, ugh. No 90-degree input jack, really ugh. Cheap wiring used.

QUICK REVIEW
These head phones wowed me in a lot of areas and also disappointed me in a few areas. First, the sound, lows, mids and highs were all exceptional, far better than I ever expected. The lows may be a bit heavy or too much for some, but that's why EQs are for I guess. The mic worked for my iPhone 5 with no issues and it was great to use to pause/skip/prev tracks as well. My gripes were, why is it $80+ earbuds DO NOT have anti-tangle cords, why do they use traditional crappy cable? Makes 0 sense to me. All in all, for $92, these earbuds are simply exceptional and I do not think you'll be disappointed.

COMFORT
4/5 - Not only were these were by far the most comfortable earbuds of the group, but that I have ever tried.

BUILD
3/5 - No anti-tangle cable/cord, really, ugh. Cord gets tangled very easily. Cheap wiring used.

QUICK REVIEW:
By far the most comfortable set of earbuds I have ever tried in my life. Amazing lows for earbuds as well, the highs and mids are missing the frequencies that the THINKSOUNDS produced with precision.hs and mids. My gripes were, why is it $80+ earbuds DO NOT have anti-tangle cords, why do they use traditional crappy cable? Makes 0 sense to me. I think any sort of audiophile or extreme audio enthusiast would be sourly disappointed with these earbud since they highs and mids are lacking.

These are also amazing earbud to my ears. Very crisp, clear, loud, the attention to detail in the entire sound spectrum amazed me.

COMFORT
3/5 - While not the most comfortable earbuds, they also weren't the least comfortable. The ThinkSounds were more comfortable to me.

BUILD
3/5 - No anti-tangle cable/cord, really, ugh. Cheap wiring used.

QUICK REVIEW
These head phones wowed me in a lot of areas and also disappointed me in a few areas. First, the sound, lows,
mids and highs were all exceptional, far better than I ever expected for being such a small earbud. My gripes were, why is it $80+ earbuds DO NOT have anti-tangle cords, why do they use traditional crappy cable? Makes 0 sense to me. $92, these earbuds are simply exceptional and I do not think you'll be disappointed.
