Monster Diddybeats

The Good Great sound quality; rich, powerful bass; interesting design; in-line remote.

The Bad Very heavy earbuds and cable.

The Bottom Line The Monster Diddybeats earbuds offer brilliant sound quality, and notably punchy bass. They're quite heavy, though, so you might struggle to keep these audacious 'buds inside your ears.
