Monster partners with EA to create MVP Carbon, the new gaming headphones at CES 2013

Monster and EA Sports have just announced a new set of professional gaming headphones for multiple platforms. The new ‘MVP Carbon’ headphones will work on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and the Wii U. This from CES 2013:

This marks Monster’s first attempt at making a gaming peripheral, a field that has been dominated with such innovators as Razer, Turtle Beach and SteelSeries. The ‘MVP Carbon’ will feature simulated 5.1 Surround Sound working off some impressive 30MM drivers. The microphone will be integrated into the device. (Android, CES 2013, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

wow $269 i was just looking at the prices of other premium headsets on amazon and i couldn't find one more expensive than that. 5.1 virtual surround sound? a headset with 7.1 is a quarter of that price. if you are selling a something at a premium price then at the very least have a premium product to match.

All of monster & most of EA's products is over rated Junk. Don't let the name or the cheap wannabe high end looks fool you.

Good to see people with the eyes open.

I think it's another company trying to throw its hat in the ring to make money off of a hot line of products. Astros, or Turtle Beach is not just good enough for me, they are the standards for quality sound gaming.

I'm curious how you can comment badly on something you've never heard?

The only monster products I ever bought were $100 ear buds that were on sale for $30. Sounded just as good as any other ear buds and the POS broke after only a few months of use. Never will pay full price for their garbage ever.

Sony headphones are total shit. The carbon headphones will run circles around anything on the market.

if you think sony headphones are shit you need to get your ears checked. sony has been making headphones since the 90's they know what they are doing.monster on the other is just a wannabe headphone maker.

trying to replicate the beats by dre success. Those are shitty headphones too. But the beats by dre branding is needed, as soon as people see monster they run.

Monster headphones just prove how humanity as a whole (90%) just follow each other and dont actually care for being ripped off sheep im telling you'se.

i will never own an overprice monster product. the company just sets its prices higher without actually doing any extra quality control to justify it. they just think they are a premium brand and price accordingly. it is a perception thing, nothing more
