Monster DNA On-Ear Headphone Review
Monster busts out its new DNA headphones, but they don't stack up well to competition.
While it lets in low-end noise almost unimpeded, the Monster DNA blocks out an appreciable amount of high-end noise. You'll still hear engine noise through them if you take them on a busy street, but that shrieking baby will be much less annoying.
The Monster DNA corrals their own sound well if you can manage a good seal on your ear, so feel free to bump your tunes without bothering those around you. Still, use discretion, as an imperfect seal can mean greater leakage when there shouldn't normally be any.
Maximum Usable Volume
Lovers of super-loud music rejoice: the Monster DNA can blast music at 120+dB (higher than most MP3 players can output) without hitting a 3% level of total distortion. However, you must be very careful with your own ears, as listening to music at a level close to the aforementioned 120dB will damage your hearing if you listen for extended periods of time.
