Nokia Unveils Monster Headphones

As well as launching its flagship Windows Phone, a budget

Windows Phone and a range of Symbian handsets, Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop just

about found time to announce that it would be releasing on-ear and in-ear headphones

in conjunction with Monster.

Monster is probably best known for brining us the Beats range of headphones, and now Nokia has teraed up with the to bring us a pair of headphones for use with Nokia’s phones.

The Nokia Purity HD Headset by Monster will, like the Lumia

800 be available in blue, pink or black, as well as white. They have been

designed specifically for use with mobile phones.

The headset is made out of scratch resistant materials and

integrated music and call-answering controls, should make it easy to use. The

foldable headset will also come with a carrying case to keep it safe when

you’re not using it.

For the more discreet audiophile, Nokia has also announced a pair of in-ear headphones, the Nokia Purity In-Ear Stereo Headset, again developed

in collaboration with Monster. The earbuds include a patent-pending, Monster

tangle-free flat cable and are available in the same four colours.

Again, the ControlTalk in-line controls let you answer calls

without removing the headphones, as well as controlling the music you’re

listening to.

Nokia has yet to announce pricing for either headset, but

with the Monster logo emblazoned on the side, we’re expecting them to come at a

premium.
