Monster AirLinks Elements

You thought AirPods were gaudy, take a look at Monster's blingy new AirLinks Elements

Monster's made some eye-catching headphones over the years, including its once-popular Diamond Tears model, and it's once again stepping up the bling factor with its upcoming AirLinks Elements totally wireless earphones, announced here at CES 2017.

Due out in April for $300 (about £245 or AU$410), Monster says its fashion accessory was "inspired by the natural perfection, clarity and brilliance of diamonds, Earth's most precious gemstone." The new model will be presented in a velveteen display and charging case "designed like a jewelry box."

The new earphones use Monster's AirLink technology, which features a proprietary, Y-shaped inner antenna that Monster says ensures a rock-solid, reliable signal between the two buds (there are no wires between them).
