Our take on the NCredible NTune by Monster®

by David Brown
Monster Cable

NCredible sound in an on-ear headphone you can bring anywhere

Many on-ear headphones are too bulky to be worn outside of your home. Not so with the NCredible NTune from Monster and music industry titan Nick Cannon. If earbuds aren't your thing but portability is, the NTune is just what you're looking for. This slick, comfortable, ultra-lightweight headphone delivers sizzling full-range sound and kicking bass. Don't leave these on-ears at home: the NTune is built to move. Upgrade those earbuds and listen as your music comes to life.

ControlTalk Universal™ provides mobile phone control

The NCredible NTune's ControlTalk Universal in-line remote gives you control over your compatible phone or music player. The built-in microphone and multi-function button offer the convenience of taking calls and playing music without rummaging around in your pocket for your phone.

Quick impressions from the Lab

Comment by Ralph Graves Staff Writer - Creative,

Lightweight, but bass-heavy

Written by Ralph Graves, Staff Writer - Creative, on 8/27/2012 9:36:00 AM

I was very impressed when I first put the NTunes on my head. Although they appeared as if they would weigh me down, they were incredibly lightweight. They're definitely one of the most comfortable pair of on-ear headphones I've worn. The padding effectively sealed out most of the ambient noise in the Labs without having to clamp tightly to my ears — and for someone who tends to wear headphones for hours, that's important.

These headphones definitely sound great for rock, rap, and electronica — any genre where bass really matters. The low end was punchy without being muddy, and the mids and highs were nicely balanced in the mix.

NCredible NTune by Monster®

Written By JC, Jacksonville, FL on Saturday, January 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bass is ear thumping, but that's really about it. Mids are muddled and the Highs often get lost with the amplified bass. Good for hip hop and other bass heavy genres, but anything instrument based without an exceptional amount of bass will leave you questioning your purchase. Comfort wise I wear glasses and as a result I can't keep these on my head for more than an hour or so before I start to get a headache. They do not let ambient noise in which is a plus, and I have had no complaints about sound bleeding out.
Pros:
Lots of bass
Cons:
Lots of bass

Poor product

Written By Gabe, STL,MO on Sunday, December 30, 2012
 
Cheap junk. Wasn't even worth plugging them in, they are cheap plastic and are no where near what you would expect from monster. They were uncomfortable on the ears and would slide right off the head.
Cons:
cheap plastic only $40 difference from the Bose AE2's I ended up getting
