When looking for products to review I always seek out companies I’ve previously had good experiences with. That means I rarely accept review units from companies I don’t have some prior purchase experience with or exposure to. One of my favorite companies for audio products is Monster. I like a solid combination of style and sound with my headphones, and Monster always delivers in that area. Previously I purchased the Monster 24K and Diamond Tears headphones from them and I was incredibly impressed with the excellent bass and beautiful look of the headphones.
Recently I partnered with Monster to review some of their best products for the holiday season. The first product they sent me is a pair of the Clarity HD In-Ear headphones. Last week I posted a detailed video review of the headphones, including a comparison to Sennheiser Momentum and PowerBeats Wireless 2, please check it out if you haven’t already:
While my video does go into detail about the build and quality of sound, I wanted to offer a few more tidbits in written form after an additional week using the headphones:
- The Clarity HD are excellent for running, they will not come out of your ear. Even my wireless Powerbeats 2 are not as good at staying on as the Clarity HD. I’ve also had no issues with sweat causing problems, many people asked about this in the comments on Youtube.
- The bass on the Clarity HD is very close to that of the Sennheiser Momentum and Powerbeats 2, but costs at least half as much. The Clarity HD retail for only $49.95 while the Momentum and Powerbeats 2 both cost $99 or more.
- Monster’s goal with the Clarity HD is offer a reasonably priced alternative to headphones that are pre-packaged with phones, while also offering great sound, and I feel they succeeded on all counts with this pair.
My only minor complaint with the Clarity HD is that the in-ear support can sometimes be annoying after a long period of wear, but in-ear headphones are not meant for marathon sessions in general, so this is not a major problem. I definitely recommend picking up the Clarity HD if you are still using the cheap earbuds packaged with your phone.
