One of the most popular brands in gaming/performance headphones is Monster. Many of their headphones deliver great sound and comfort, but typically with a steep price tag.
With the past movie release of TRON: Legacy, Monster and Disney came together to create the TRON Legacy T3 In-Ear Headphones. The headphones are the best of Monster sound innovation with the style and theme of TRON.
From top to bottom, the T3 In-Ear Headphones are pure TRON. In other words, if you are a TRON fan you will love the way these headphones look. The actual earphone features a highly detailed, brushed metal design with the TRON “T” logo in a light blue styling. The earphone is further designed with lines from the TRON universe, leading down into the cable.
The in-ear headphones feature low mass, wide-bandwidth drivers to deliver maximum dynamic range. In regular speak, this means that the headphones deliver detailed sound with great bass and noise cancellation.
Being in-ear headphones, not every person will like the feeling of sticking the headphones into their ears, but Monster does provide three different sized tips to find a good fit. With the right tip, you get a comfortable set of headphones with very good sound isolation, but the key is finding the right tip!
As seen with many of Monster’s recent headphone products, the featured cable is Monster’s patented flat cable design which ensures a tangle-resistant experience. The cable is also comfortably long and includes an in-line cable management slider.
These headphones are designed for gaming and performance and not for phone calls. With a lack of microphone and in-line controls, these are not the headphones to make calls on your iPhone. However, if you’re looking for headphones for music/gaming, you’re looking at the right product.
Overall, the T3 In-Ear Headphones deliver deep (amazing) bass, clear sound, great noise isolation, and a tangle-free design wrapped up in a TRON-inspired theme. For me, the headphones are comfortable but the in-ear style is an acquired taste. If you’re looking for performance headphones, and you like TRON, the T3 In-Ear Headphones may meet your needs.
In Canada, the Tron Legacy T3 In-Ear Headphones are available at Future Shop and Best Buy for $59.95.
