Monster products have always been overpriced IMO. You can get a pair of Sennheiser HD-25II for $50 cheaper. All the parts of the headphone are replaceable too, and Sennheiser is known for their wonderful headphones.

The inspirations are at the upper end of Monster's spectrum of quality. Still below par and inferior to a lot of stuff at their price range, however, and the active noise cancelling is poor.

I would suggest the Beyerdynamic dt770's at that price point. Actually they're now $230

I have several headphones, but if I could only own one pair it would be Shure SRH940s. They are closed backed, light, sound great without an amp, and sound fantastic with one. These are accurate headphones, so if you mainly listen to lower bitrate mp3s, they will show every flaw. Also, the bass is not emphasized, so if you are used to bass emphasized headphones, you may not like these. I prefer a detailed sound vs an over-emphasized bass sound, though.

If you do listen to low bitrates, Sennheisser would be a better choice. My hd580s make anything sound warm.

These look unreal, love the color options. Do you have the over ear or on ear pair?

I don't actually don't own a pair but a buddy of mine has a pair and let me borrow them for a week and I loved them. I was using the over the ear par. Anyway the noise canceling was amazing and the sound was clean and had a good range. So glad that Monster doesn't make the crappy Beats and that they are making a quality product.
