I did a bit of researching on getting a new pair of headphones, I narrowed it down to theMonster Inspiration, Harman Kardon NC and Sennheiser Momentum. Yes the Momentum has better sound quality but its more expensive and I found the design bulky and uninspiring plus it didn't have noise cancelling. I used to hate Monster for designing the Beats line of products but ever since they split Monster has done a wonderful job of designing these cans. I don't know what the guy who gave these headphones one star, he should definitely have his hearing checked. I love all the included "goodies" included with the headphones. Good job Monster!
