    I always use this headphone when I was on the bus, in the classroom or even walking to the Shopping Mall. This headphone was so cool that a lot of people will ask you where did I get one. The noise cancelling function is amazing, you can just turn on the button in the headphone and you can feel the greatly difference. Although it is a little heavier, I still love using it.

    First, the sound of these headphones is quite good, but the FR is more U-shaped ("fun") than flat/neutral, although (thankfully) apparently not as much as the Monster Beats. The sound is best when the NC is not needed (NC on, but in a quiet setting), and flatter when NC is off. (With NC on and in a quiet location, however, the bass can be overwhelming on some bass-heavy tracks.) But as a travel headphones, the Bose QC15s sound better in a noisy environment because the ANC is more aggressive and, as a result, you hear more bass. (The QC15s are lighter, more compact, and more comfortable, to boot.) With the Inspirations, you bass tends to get washed out in the low frequency background noise that doesn't get silenced, although I've noticed this with just about every other noise-cancelling headphone other than Bose. On the other hand, in a quiet setting, the Inspirations sound a lot better than the Bose QC15s (which, frankly, sound somewhat mediocre in that setting). At MSRP, I couldn't recommend these. I got mine at a very substantial discount, so I'm more neutral, but they are not my first choice for travel.

      Comments about Monster Inspiration Active Noise Cancelling Titanium Over-Ear Headphones:

      These are the best headphones I've ever bought! Fair enough they're a little expensive, but once I started using them I completely forgot about it. They're also really nicely designed; they feel sturdy and really well built, and I love that you can change the design of the magnetic band.
      Aside from looking great they also sound amazing and you can wear them for ages. I was a little worried they might be a bit big to wear for extended times - but they are so cushioned you really don't mind. They've got a nice balance between good bass, great mids and clear high range.
      I have used slightly better ones while studying music, but they were much more expensive than these - and didn't look anywhere near as nice.

      >> Would definitely buy again <<

        Comments about Monster Inspiration Active Noise Cancelling Titanium Over-Ear Headphones:

        Very well designed headphones with active noise canceling that works on long haul flights and feels comfortable when worn for long periods. Combine all of that with great sound quality. Another great feature is if the batteries die the Acitve Noise Cancellation stops but headphones still work to listen to music which is not true for other ANC headphones.

            Comments about Monster Inspiration Active Noise Cancelling Titanium Over-Ear Headphones:

            I use this product for many things in my free time. It is a good way to listen to music on the web and hear things in extremely good quality. I have been listening to a lot of chillstep on youtube lately and am amazed by some of the minute sounds it picks up that I would otherwise not here with other headphones. I didn't really like the way the headphones looked at first, but then I realized that they were designed with durability in mind. However, I do wish that they came with a thicker cord like beats by dre. The one that is in the box is thin like a fettuccine noodle. But since I already have BBDre, I just switched out the cord and everything is all good now. The headband is epic strong, it has some sort of metal reinforcements that are polished and shiny looking. I will buy from monster again in the near future, because I saw the vector diesel and I loved the way they look. The inspirations are cool cause you can switch out the bands and get different colors, I just wish they had a wider selection of bands cause I wanted a red, white and blue flag for the fourth of July.

              Put my old "noise canceling headphone" to rest the second I had this amazing headphone on. Would get it for the looks alone... And what a positive surprise when the music starts to play!

              Yes, got it as gift, but no strings attached. Don't buy... Just try it... Then you'll know what I am talking about.
