[Staples] Monster ClarityHD On-Ear BT Headphones

Hi folks!

Been looking for a cheapish BT headset for work. The price seems right on these and I decided to give them a try.

Let me know what you guys think!

Ask yourself the question: how can drop the price of a $200 item down to $80 and still make a profit?

The answer? These are overpriced garbage

Ask yourself the question: What are other reasons for which items go on sale? Could it be due to a new version of the same item coming out? Could it be to make space for other items which the retailer believes command higher margins or sales? Could it be because the item was simply unpopular at the price point it was introduced?

Hm..

You're absolutely right. But not in this case. In this case, it's because it's overpriced garbage.

There are some audio Technica's on clearance at Walmart. Check those out, price is similar. Monster used to make quality products, now they're very hit or miss, missing on most marks.

I bought this for my kids a few months ago. This is not garbage (build, sound, bt connectivity, battery), definitely worth $80.

I have a pair of these. Well worth this price imo. I think they sound better than my wife's beats.

Nope, using same Adapter before and after it happened on many other devices, none of them has any issue, except Monster BT earpiece.

Would you say the same thing about the $500 Sony headphones that they had on sale for $250 the other day that people were going crazy over?

I have this exact pair in black, never had any problems.

This kind of thing could happen to any device. Not saying you're but in general don't leave things charging unattended and don't use cheap dollar shop chargers and cables.
