LITTLE MONSTER. When it comes to headphones, 2014 is the year for Monster. The DNA Pro Wireless over-the-ear headphones cut a handsome dash to be worn with your casual wear, and they play fine big sounds, thanks to the smart Bluetooth capability and the APT-X technology for near lossless sound with Android devices.


There’s also the wired USB digital audio function, should you like über-fine sound quality. But don’t get confused with all the terms and features; using these headphones isn’t rocket science. Plugging the device in via the USB port is the way to recharge it, and the Bluetooth is constantly on, unless you fold the headphones to conserve the energy.
