The highly anticipated Marshall Monitor is now available online at marshallheadphones.com, and will be available in retailers beginning in early May for $200. The Monitor embodies the power and strength that is Marshall in a headphone, with hi-fi prowess and larger-than-life sound.
Its slender over-ear construction delivers superior noise isolation without the bulk. Monitor is embossed with a white script logo and black vinyl leather, evoking the spirit of those legendary vintage amps, while the heavy-duty cast metal hinges, brass accents and plug make it full-out roadworthy. The completely detachable double-ended coil cord with mic and remote can be worn on either the right or left side. The extra 3.5mm socket allows you to share your music. When you’re done, fold ‘em up and stow them away in the canvas carrying pouch.
Resonating with the power of live performance, Monitor produces deep bass with extended highs and natural, well-balanced mids. Its custom-made low distortion 40mm drivers cover the entire frequency range. Even at high playback levels, the sound is punchy and dynamic. With the Monitor’s F.T.F. system, you can choose your own sound experience ¬– a warmer, laid back sound, or a brighter and clearer sound.

Port Saint Lucie, Florida – (August 9, 2011) – Bongiovi Acoustics, developers of the patented Digital Power Station™, introduces the world’s first fully-featured DPS-enabled audio player for iOS. Now you can enjoy music and video entertainment by optimizing media for your listening device and even for your listening environment. The Bongiovi DPS captures the patented real-time, audio re-mastering technology that was born in the original Power Station Studios and implements it into your iOS device. It is available immediately for download in the Apple App Store or on iTunes.
DPS is a 100% active digital processing method that analyzes the audio signal and re-masters it in real-time for optimized playback on a particular device. From high-end audiophile grade speaker systems, to low-end iPod speaker docks, DPS enhances your media across all hardware. Bongiovi engineers use over 120 calibration points to create customized audio profiles. The FREE Bongiovi DPS App comes with custom profiles that enhance playback on standard Apple earbuds and built-in speakers of supported iOS devices. An in-app purchase (introductory offer of .99 cents) enables users to further customize their own sound by selecting from a menu of tuning profiles created for today’s most popular headphones and docking systems.
“Our patented, real-time audio re-mastering process sets the new standard for digital audio in today’s new media delivery systems,” said Ron Simmons, Managing Director of Bongiovi Acoustics. “Poor audio quality from new media formats like mp3 files and streaming video is a digital problem and we’ve solved it with an innovative digital solution. We give you the tools to take control of your own audio. A simple app now enables you to significantly improve the audio performance of your Apple device or any accessory you connect it to.”
In 1977, legendary producer Tony Bongiovi built what would become the world’s most famous recording studio: Power Station. With its breakthrough acoustical design and innovative engineering, Power Station Studios became the facility of choice for artists like Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, and many more. The Bongiovi DPS iOS application captures the technology born in the original Power Station Studios and conveniently delivers it to you. DPS technology can also be found in an expanding list of Toyota vehicles as well as in the award-winning iHome Studio Series docking stations.

“We are all about empowering DPS users worldwide” says Phillip Fuller, VP of Engineering and Technology at Bongiovi Acoustics. “The unique control we gain through our use of profiles really puts the DPS over the top and sets us apart. Whether it’s with our desktop plug-in, our automotive module, iHome speaker docks, or now the iOS application, we can tailor a profile to optimize the playback of your media files for your specific device and listening environment. Spending money on expensive hardware to play the same old low-quality compressed file makes no sense! We attack the problem at the source and optimize it at its core – the program material. Our goal is to enhance your listening experience regardless of the quality of your hardware.”

FINIS unveiled its XtreaMP3 player, a waterproof, sweat-proof player with just 1GB of storage. Although we’ll have to take FINIS at its word when it says the player is waterproof to 15 feet, for $150, we’d rather swim MP3-free and take our chances of sweat ruining a $30, 2GB player. The sporty aspect of the package, the armband, simply isn’t a good enough fit; the player pops out far too easily to trust it to snowboarding—and again, that $150 price tag might just compel you to go back and try to find the player 100 feet up the mountain.
