Monster iSport Strive review


Stylish, sporty-looking and safety-conscious buds with a fine sound

Solid, up-for-it delivery Balanced presentation Stylish; safety-conscious

Fit and ‘open’ sound won’t be for everyone Rivals have more clarity and expression

These were uncomfortable.


These are the first sports earphones I have tried, and I was looking forward to having some to wear while walking and spinning. Unfortunately I found them very difficult to wear. I could only just get the small ones in my ears. They provided good sound...
