At Monster, we are honored to have enthusiastic and responsive fans and we understand that delays and product changes can be frustrating. As we have continually emphasized, however, it’s most important that as true Monsters we take the steps necessary to deliver to you the highest-quality product that provides the best possible user experience.
We appreciate your feedback and would like to bring you up to date on the latest developments with the Monster Game T1 Championship Edition Music and Gaming Headphone. As we have mentioned, the T1’s will be sold standalone and can be easily transformed into a full fledged High Performance, High resolution Gaming Headphone with the addition of the Voice/Chat Headphone Surround DSP (Tron Edition). The DSP is for use in conjunction with the accompanying BOOM Microphone with LED.
Here are some common questions we would like to answer:
1. Why are the headphones not bundled with the Voice/Chat Headphone Surround DSP (Tron Edition)?
Put simply, we would not be able to offer the newly optimized T1’s to you at a reasonable price if we bundled them with the Voice/Chat Headphone Surround DSP. The T1’s are designed to be the world’s first high end music headphone with the capability to switch gears to be a true high end Gaming headphone. We have developed the T1 driver to have a much faster response, eclipsing that of any other headphone we have ever built. The driver has enough movement to hit the lower frequencies without breaking up or distorting. We incorporated a sound isolating ear-cup design with extended flexibility and comfort. In addition, the headphones are mobile-ready out of the box and their Light Drive system achieves over 10 hours of full headphone illumination on a single AAA battery.
We really wanted to make sure that we addressed the customers who really wanted to use the headphone for music listening. By offering the Voice/Chat DSP unit separately, the T1 can stand alone as a high fidelity music headphone for those who just want to use it for music, while gamers have the option to augment the T1 into a full fledged gaming headphone. In essence, the customer gets to choose.
2. What is the pricing of the T1’s and Voice/Chat Headphone Surround DSP?
The T1’s MSRP is $299.99 and the Voice/Chat Headphone Surround DSP MSRP is $129 although it can be found at most retailers for $99.
3. When will the T1’s and DSP be available?
The T1’s will be availablein late September. The Voice/Chat Headphone Surround DSP will be available sometime in December.
4. Where will the T1’s and DSP be available?
Amazon, Fry’s Electronics, Sonic, J&R, PC Richards and Son, Brandsmart, Best Buy Canada, Futureshop Canada, Nebraska Furniture Mart, and HH Greg, Crutchfield, and Vanns. Other possible locations will be announced at a later date.
As we get close to the official release of the Voice/Chat Headphone Surround DSP (Tron Edition) in time for the holidays, we’ll be reaching out to some of our Monsterous Facebook fans to get your feedback on the performance of the product. Please stay tuned for further information on the T1s. We’ll be sure to keep you posted with release news.
Do you own an HD-DVR? Bet you didn’t know that it uses more than half the energy of most new refrigerators and more than an average flat panel TV… and that’s when it’s NOT in use! Cable boxes and HD-DVR’s don’t have to be in use to consume massive amounts of energy. Check out this article on USA Today’s Green House to learn more:
Covering air conditioning is enough to worry about this summer, so why not knock some weight off your electric bill by reducing energy consumption? Monster GreenPower has you covered! When GreenPower electronics are turned off or go to sleep, the GreenPower outlets switch off, automatically eliminating energy wasted by your subwoofer, DVD player, and more. When your HDTV or AV receiver switches back on, the GreenPower outlets automatically power up again. This reduces Vampire Energy loss (when your electronics are draining electricity while not in use) and eliminates the need to tediously turn off each individual component.
Take a look at some of Monster’s energy-saving GreenPower products below, and let us know if you have other energy saving tips!

At Monster, we pride ourselves on sound quality, regardless of whether it’s about maximizing your home theater system or upgrading the jams on your MP3 player. But this year, we’re venturing into brand-new territory —the gaming industry.
It doesn’t matter if it’s the soundtrack to Final Fantasy XII or Sonic the Hedgehog, music is an integral part of the video game experience, and at Monster, it only makes sense to enter the game.
The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) will be our “coming-out” party, as it’s the largest industry tradeshow for computer and video game-related products. Tens of thousands of influencers and industry professionals attend the event every year to catch the latest in games, products, features and trends. So we’re definitely going to make a splash this year.
While the Monster Power Charging Station and Tron Light Disk Audio Dock on display, the big daddies of the event will be the Monster Gaming T1s, T1 Daft Punk Edition and T3s. With these headphones, Monster’s goal is to provide the gaming industry with something that not only looks awesome, but most importantly, sounds great. So if you have a handheld gaming device, a console, or simply play games on your smartphone, we have something for you.
At the event, bloggers, journalists and other attendees will be allowed to try on the headphones, use the LED features, and try out the latest games in anticipation of their mid-August release.
So make sure to stay tuned to our social channels, as we’ll provide the latest news, photos and videos, live from the event. And don’t think we forgot about our loyal fans! There’ll be plenty of gaming giveaways throughout each day, so stay tuned for more details…

Monster and Tron fans, we have recently determined that we will not be able to meet the planned April release date for the Tron T1 and T3 headphones. We truly appreciate the interest you have shown in the Tron Headphones and assure you that no one is more disappointed than the Monster team about the delay.
As much as we would like to be shipping the Trons now, the simple fact of the matter is that we will never release a product that doesn’t live up to the expectations that we demand and you deserve. We worked extremely hard to meet the April release date, but the initial production run of the Tron headphones did not meet our standards for quality and aesthetics. Rather than simply release a sub-standard headphone and risk disappointing our best customers, we had to make the hard decision to delay the release and bring out Monster-quality headphones later than originally planned.
Right now, we have two target dates. The T3 in-ear headphones are scheduled to be available in the U.S. and Canada during the first week of May. Next, the T1 Gaming Headphones (in black) and the T1 Daft Punk Special Edition Headphones (in white) are scheduled to be available by mid-August.
Until then, we want to show you our appreciation for your patience by offering a special-edition High Definition Sound (HDS) version of the Tron Legacy soundtrack free to you when you do order a Tron headphone! You absolutely can’t get this HDS disk anywhere else, and we hope that you’ll enjoy listening to the sounds of Daft Punk with your Tron-inspired Monster Gaming Headphones when they are released this summer.
To receive your Tron Legacy HDS soundtrack, simply shoot our team an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. At that time you will be asked to send proof of purchase in order to be eligible to receive the HDS disk. Orders from any authorized Monster dealer are eligible for this special promotion.
*Users must sign up for this program by 4/30/2011. Limit 1 free disk per individual. To receive a Tron Legacy HDS soundtrack at no charge, you must purchase a Monster T1 or T3 headphone from an authorized dealer within 30 days of their official release and provide Proof of Purchase. You will be alerted of this date by email.
