CNET First Look
Monster's new well-balanced, dynamic headphones get a flagship releaseThe Monster DNA Pro 2.0 headphones are a step forward in design and sound quality, but some users may find the ear cups too narrow.
Hey, it's Justin Yu from CNet. This is a first look at the Monster DNA Pro 2.0 headphones. Now you're probably why these look so different from other Monster headphones. Well, monster took a different approach to this flagship headphones design. Now you still get the same classic Monster semicircle headband, but the ear cups take the form of triangles this time. Which may look pretty cool with the fake carbon fiber weave and some reflective pieces on the side here, but the area inside where your ear goes is actually pretty small, so you'll want to make sure and try these on before you buy them, because as with all head phones, fit is a huge factor in both comfort and sound quality. Other details worth noting are an additional headphone jack on the side, so you can your friend can both listen to a source at the same time. You also get two different cables in the package. One, with a coiled section at the top for extra length, and a separate cable with an inline remote and volume control for your smartphone. In terms of performance, these sound great if you can achieve a proper fit. Music sounds smooth and well-balanced. And although you do get a lot of bass out of these, it's not gonna be overpowering like some of Monster's other headphones. This model doesn't have active noise cancelling, but it does do a really great job at hiding outside noise while you're listening. You can check out more comparisons, photos and details in my full review on CNET. But that's going to do it for this video. This is the Monster DNA pro 2.0 headphones. Thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
