Monster, a leader in audio/video accessories, and Beats by Dr. Dre, co-founded by legendary artist and producer Dr. Dre and Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine, announce Beats by Dr. Dre Spin Professional Headphones ($349 MSRP). The Beats Spin headphones were developed through the collaborative efforts of Dr. Dre, Monster and Jimmy Iovine.
The new over-ear Beats Spin headphones combine sophisticated construction and advanced sonic technologies to deliver power, extra durability and sound isolation. Beats Spin headphones are tailored for use by working DJs, producers, engineers and musicians, both in the studio and onstage.
To create a headphone capable of standing up to the rigors of rough and repeated professional use, every element of Beats Spin headphones was designed for rock-solid durability. Most importantly, all components of the all-important headphone hinge are made of metal, unlike plastic components used by other pro headphones.
To re-create the quietness of an isolated recording studio listening experience, Beats Spin headphones feature a variety of ambient noise-isolation capabilities, allowing consumers to hear the music clearly, even in the noisiest environments.
Beats Spin earpieces feature specially designed Monster patented jacks that can serve as both inputs and outputs. This unique configuration frees users to quickly and easily send and accept signals from a soundboard or share their creative mixes with fellow artists.
Beats Spin headphones feature a six-foot cord, and the coiled section is 3 inches long and expandable to 1 foot, allowing users the right amount of coil for long reaches while avoiding the high tangle properties of longer coil cables.
Beats Spin also offer a second cord option: ControlTalk headphone cable. ControlTalk can be used with iPhone and iPod for music playback control, as well as to take hands-free calls with iPhone and many smart phones. The cable’s integrated high-grade microphone and answer button lets users access their music and answer phone calls without having to reach into their pocketbook, backpack or pocket.
Both ear cups swivel back easily for greater artistic freedom and flexibility and can be easily removed for washing. This same swivel mechanism also plays a role in helping make Beats Spin headphones super compact when folded away for storage.
