Monster has introduced a new personal audio experience platform that it’s calling Melody, available through the new MonsterTalk lineup of headphones. Through a collaboration with AI-driven personal music platform Speak Music, the Melody voice powered music assistant will allow users to tell their headphones what music they want to play, whether it’s a particular song, an artist, a playlist, or a genre, and the headphones will listen.
The MonsterTalk lineup will launch with Monster Products’ premium Elements headphones, the ClarityHD line, and its iSport Freedom V2 fitness headphones. According to Monster, the Element headphones will be the first Voice-Controlled premium headphones. The MonsterTalk models will all be available later this month.
“Monster’s decades of experience in consumer audio make it clear to us that the market is moving toward voice as the new user interface,” Head Monster Noel Lee said in a statement. “In collaboration with Speak Music, we’re now able to deliver an unparalleled listening experience to our customers, who not only demand the highest quality in sound and product design, but also the ability to continue their activities uninterrupted, while enjoying whatever song, playlist, station or genre fits their mood in that moment.”
