Our take on the Monster® iSport LIVESTRONG™

by Dave Bar
Monster Cable

Get fantastic performance and help a good cause

Monster iSport Livestrong

Nothing pumps up your workout or adds excitement to your favorite indoor and outdoor sports like great music. But it's hard to focus on your game if your headphones keep falling out or if they self-destruct when they get wet. With iSport LIVESTRONG™ by Monster, that's a problem you won't have.

These durable, fully machine-washable headphones can really go the distance. They feature a patented SportClip design with soft, flexible stabilizers that gently hug the inner rim of each ear to hold them firmly in place — no matter how much you move. You get fantastic Monster-quality sound and a secure, comfortable fit that won't get in the way of your goggles, glasses or helmet. Plus, every purchase of iSport LIVESTRONG™ headphones provides funding for the Lance Armstrong Foundation and the fight against cancer.

Customizable for a comfortable fit

Monster includes a selection of sound isolating eartips, so you can find the set that gives you the most comfortable fit. They're designed to keep out external sound and moisture. The OmniTip™ eartip nozzles swivel, allowing them to conform more comfortably to your ears.

Great sound and fit

Written By T2, Bellingham, WA. on Friday, July 06, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is the first pair of in ear headphones I have had that stay in place at the gym. Weights, Cross fit, or Cardio, they stay put. Not sure of the build quality as of yet as I have only had them for a month or so. I use these for my iPod Nano.
Stays put in the gym. The cord is also very flexible and does not bunch up.
Could use more Bass. No volume control on the control button. Just start, stop, and next or previous track. For me that is a minor thing but for some it really matters.
