Anyone have any info on these headphones? They actually call them "
in ear speakers," sounds kinda suspect...plus I don't really trust any "noise cancelling" claim until I can't hear anything but my music on the F Train. I'll post the link, please let me know of any experience/info. Thanks.http://www.electronics-expo.com/make...MHTRBIE/1.html

Monster (in general) = over priced. I'd look at something from a manufacturer who deals mostly with headphones only.

FYI - these in ears are not "noise cancelling", they are sound isolating (there is a pretty big difference) noise cancelling is an active process that requires a mic and sound processor to be built into the headphones. sound isolating, which these headphones are, is the process of blocking out external noise by creating a sound barrier within the ear canal by fitting securely and creating a seal so the sound is isolated within the ear. these work fairly good for that, however, not as good as Shure inears do.

I can tell you that the sound quality on these is extremely good. I do not use these particular ones personally, but I have listened to them. I use the Monster Beats In-ears for my daily listening, and they sound great (still a little lacking on the sound isolating feature). All in all I would say that Monster is on the right track for their headphones. I think eventually, they will be known more as a headphone company.
