Shopping for Quality: A Review of My Husband's High-End Headphones

At heart, I’m a girl who loves a good deal. You’ll find me flipping through the clearance racks, popping into a thrift shop to see what’s in store, a grocery basket stocked with generics. But even I’ve learned that there are times when it makes sense to splurge—when a good buy might really mean buying the more expensive item initially, but since it’s built well, it lasts far longer than the cheap alternative. So that in the long run, you end up saving more....

At heart, I’m a girl who loves a good deal. You’ll find me flipping through the clearance racks, popping into a thrift shop to see what’s in store, a grocery basket stocked with generics. But even I’ve learned that there are times when it makes sense to splurge—when a good buy might really mean buying the more expensive item initially, but since it’s built well, it lasts far longer than the cheap alternative. So that in the long run, you end up saving more.

I’ve found that it most often comes into play when shopping for higher-ticket items that you use on a daily basis like vehicles, electronics, home repairs, etc. On those things where reliability and durability matter, it makes sense to spend more for a brand or job-well-done that you know you can trust. Which is why I was thrilled to get a pair of high-end headphones for my husband—the real music-lover around here—to try out. When I pulled the box out to surprise him, his reaction, even then was simple: “Wow.”

The Monster N-Tune on-ear headphones are known for providing high-quality sound with durability to last. (While we haven't put it to the test, the box boasts that they are "virtually indestructible.")

When my husband tried them out, his immediate reaction was how comfortable they were on his ears. (Did you see how much foam padding is all around the ear- and head pieces?) Plus, they’re built to be lightweight so that you can wear them for extended periods of time without feeling weighed down.

My husband also plays music on the side, so he could also tell that the sound quality was much better with these than his other headphones. They kept the richness of the music crisp and intact, while isolating out all the background noise that comes from a house with a baby who loves to be heard! They also include a mic and controls so that you can hook them to your smartphone or tablet and use them to chat with friends.

All in all, he was impressed with the Monster N-Tune headphones, and they’ve proved to stand up to the brand’s reputation for being sturdy and delivering superior sound quality. The color we received was cherry red, but they come in a rainbow of colors to choose from. With the holidays just around the corner, this might be a good gift idea sure to impress the music-lover on your list!
