Monster DNA On-Ear Headphone Review
Monster busts out its new DNA headphones, but they don't stack up well to competition.
Both the included cables for the Monster DNA headphones are 3.93 feet long, and are capped with standard 1/8th inch male plugs. There are differences between the two, but that basically amounts to: one has a remote with microphone and volume control, the other doesn't.
Because the Monster DNA cans fold in on themselves, are light, and employ a carrying pouch, you'll find that it's easy to port these puppies around in a backpack, messenger bag or large purse. There's even a faux carabiner to clip the pouch to your belt, but that looks about as stylish as a fanny pack.
The ability to swap out or replace cables with new ones is huge, and greatly extend the life of your headphones if you accidentally break a cord. It may sound strange, but this is usually the first part of a pair of headphones that breaks for most people.
Remote & Mic
One of the included cables has a remote with microphone and volume control for all you smartphone users out there. Thankfully, the remote actually does a great job of fitting in with the design of the rest of the headphones, and doesn't exactly stick out like a sore thumb, which happens more often than you'd expect. While basic, it gets the job done.
