CES 2012: Monoprice and their Great Cheap Headphone
Not long ago, Steve Guttenberg gave me a call, "Dude! You've just got to hear these Monoprice headphones. They sound great and they're just $21.59!"
Shortly afterward, he posted an Audiophiliac article about the Monoprice 8323, and after reading it I scurried over to my CES planner and marked down the booth. I love good sounding cheap stuff, and I've found Steve's recommendations pretty solid in the past. This was one I wouldn't miss.
Man!!! Am I glad I went to the Monoprice booth for a listen to the 8323. This is a seriously good headphone ... and not seriously good for $20, these sounded good for a $80 headphone ... or at least that's what my head was telling me as I listened in the booth. Again, show listening conditions suck, but I was stunned at what I was hearing. Review samples are forthcoming, and I'll be sure to review these cans. You don't really have to wait for the review, however, at $21.59 there's not much to loose.
Here's Tjayi Malone to tell you about them.
