Monoprice® Refreshes Audio Lineup to Offer Three New Superior-Sounding Headphones at Unbeatable Value

E-tailer Expands Selection With Enhanced Features Such as Active Noise-Cancellation, Bass Boost and Improved Sound Engineering

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA--(Marketwired - August 18, 2015) - Monoprice, a leading provider of high-quality and affordably priced consumer electronics and accessories, today announced the debut of a new on-ear and over-ear headphone line consisting of the Hi-Fi Lightweight On-Ear Headphone ($14.99), the Hi-Fi Over-the-Ear Headphone ($69.99) and the Active Noise-Cancelling Headphone with Bass Boost ($99.99). The collection combines features such as active noise-cancellation, Bass Boost and improved sound engineering to reaffirm Monoprice's commitment to high-quality audio.

"You don't have to spend a lot of money to get great sound, and our headphone offerings prove that you can buy sound quality that matches or surpasses headphones that are two or three times as expensive," said Bernard Luthi, president of Monoprice. "Each product in this new lineup was thoughtfully designed and engineered with the idea that consumers should have access to high-quality audio at prices that don't break the bank. So whether you're in the market for a simple, on-the-go headphone or an option that offers more high-performance features, we are committed to providing great-sounding audio products that cater to specific needs without sacrificing the fundamentals of sound."
