Apple Monster Headphones “Not So Friendly”

Apple has recently reported to BGR that a large amount of complaints have been received about the supposed Apple-friendly Monster headphones. The fault with the headphones is said to be problematic during music playback from Apple devices.

Even though sold as Apple compatible, the Monster headphone problems have symptoms spreading across Apple’s iPod, iPhone and iPad range. These include erratic behaviour when playing or skipping through songs and random pausing.

Apple has looked into these faults and concluded that the conductive flange connections used by the Monster headphones cause electrical interference with Apple’s Remote and Mic technology. According to the manufacturer these headphones “do not meet Apple’s technical specifications,” and Apple are keen for customers to realise that their Apple devices are not at fault.

Monster headphone models that suffer from these problems include Heartbeats, Jamz, Lil Jamz along with the Turbine Basic and Pro. At this time Monster has offered up no comment in regards to these findings.
