When the Parisian duo Daft Punk officially formed a band in 1992, they never thought that they would take the world by storm. While many Paris based progressive dance artists came onto the scene around the same time, Daft Punk quickly rose to the top and became a worldwide sensation. The release of Tron: Legacy marked a whole new chapter for this traditionally club based group. The 2010 Tron: Legacy movie from Disney featured a soundtrack created by Daft Punk. The music was an inspiration for the actors while they were filming the movie, as well as a popular downloaded album across the world. For Tron fans and Daft Punk fanatic alike, there has become a new way to experience the music created by this French duo. In partnering with Disney, Monster has released the Special Daft Punk Edition of the Tron T1 Headphones.
These Daft Punk Tron T1 Headphones create a listening environment unlike anything else. Monster designed, engineered, and manufactured specifically for the sounds of electronic music. Similar to Dr. Dre’s Beats by Dre headphones, these On-Ear Headphones will create a listening experience that Daft Punk (and other electronic artists) would be proud of. In addition to the specific electronic tuning, the T1 headphones also feature advanced passive noise isolation to keep your listening experience more of a personal experience. On the ear cars there are LED light drivers that have 64 adjustable embedded TRON Legacy animated light effects. In-line is the Monster ControlTalk that offers volume adjustment, as well as track changes on compatible MP3 players and smartphones. The leather band and ear cups are comfortable, so you can listen to your music all day long without discomfort.
