Basel, Switzerland — Monster has forged a new headphones partnership once again, this time with watchmaker Hublot.
The Hublot Inspiration by Monster over-ear headphones, which will be available in the U.S. this summer for “around $2,000,” feature active noise cancellation, Bluetooth technology, and AAC and AptX codecs. The carbon-fiber design boasts solid metal frames with a brushed-aluminum finish, leather ear pads, rubber headband, and in-line mic and remote.
Monster made the announcement during Baselworld, a watch and jewelry show being held here until May 2.
Two microphones are used to cancel noise for the Hublot Inspirations: one for constant sound and one for intermittent sounds.
