Gadget is giving away a set of Monster’s new DNA headphones, as well as three double tickets to the launch concert. Read on to see how you can be in line to win.
Monster’s newest range of headphones, the DNA line, will be launched in conjunction with musician, DJ and producer Alex Niggemann this weekend. The launches will be at concerts held at Fiction in Cape Town on 23 March and at Nicci Beach in Johannesburg on 24 March. Gadget is giving away 3 sets of double tickets to either show and one set of the DNA headphones.
The Monster DNA line of headphones feature Pure Sound, which means you don’t need to choose how much treble and bass you want to hear. The headphones are tuned to play live music and so set the balances to give you the most natural sound experience. Also featured is Monster’s Pillow Soft noise cancelation technology, blocking out all external sound while listening to your favourite music.
The Music Share feature on the headphones lets you share your music with people around you. This is made possible by the dual input jacks, allowing you to connect another set of headphones and thus let someone else hear what you are without squeezing your heads together.
