Geek Gift Countdown: Monster’s Tron Legacy Studio Headphones

Seeing as it is the week of release for Disney’s big digital rendering known as TRON: Legacy, I thought I might use this as an excuse to feature a few Grid-related accessories. Because even if the rumors are true and the movie isn’t quite as blissful as many would hope — though stay tuned for my review later this week to find out the truth — one thing is for sure: Tron has style. And that style was not lost on the folks at Monster, makers of fine cabling and Dr. Dre-infused iPod accessories. They bring us today a very cool set of headphones modeled after the “Beats by Dre” series that might just be the set you need in order to listed to Daft Punk at the appropriate levels.

Disney’s Tron Legacy T1 Studio High Definition and Home Theater Surround Sound Headphones (with Control Talk by Monster)

Aside from the glorious style of the design, these headphones are also pretty wicked when it comes to sound quality. It features an advanced studio driver design for ultra-precision surround sound clarity.  Extra large over-ear drivers deliver deep bass and thunderous low-end effects.  The headphones boast an adjustable LED lighting system inspired by Tron Legacy Animated Lighting Effects.  To keep you submerged in whatever it is that you’re doing, they also block external sound with Passive noise isolation blocks.

Did you get that? Surround sound, deep bass, external noise suppression. And the light up? I’m sold. Sleek, sexy and functional. I don’t think you can really go wrong there. Just don’t pay so much attention to the $300 price tag and you should be just fine.

How the Price Index Works:

For our ‘Price Index,’ we’ve devised a four-level scale based on the expense of the items we’re recommending. This is based on our research (mainly on Amazon and other fine retailers). It breaks down like so:

Dirt Cheap: Cost of $25 or less.

Affordable: Cost of no greater than $50.

A Worthy Stretch: Slightly more expensive, but no more expensive than $150.

For the Rich: Gifts for those you really, really love. $150 and greater items only need apply here.
