There's never been anything like Beats By Dre. The bulky rainbow headphones are a gaudy staple of planes, clubs and footpaths everywhere: as mammoth, beloved and expensive as their namesake.

Monster's new "Ultra HD Platinum" HDMI range is being billed as an essential purchase for anyone requiring the high-speed bandwidth demands of 4K video.

The first Windows Phone 8 device on the market will be the Nokia Lumia 920. This is Nokia's coming out party, Microsoft's mobile mitzvah and Lumia's naming ceremony. With so much riding on it, does it match the hype?


Peanut butter and jelly, unicorns and glitter, Beats Electronics and Monster. One of these things just doesn't belong, one of these things is not like the others. After a five-year collaboration, the two companies have terminated their relationship but do hope to remain friends.


Monster's Tron prototype cans from CES last year will finally hit stores in February in the form of the Game T1 gaming headset. Gizmodo Australia had a chat with rapper, Xzibit, who explained helpfully filled us in on what we can expect to hit Australia.


Monster -- a company once known for producing insanely nerdy speaker wire -- changed headphones forever (for better or worse) with its fashionable, bass-heavy Beats by Dre line. Now that Monster's cash cow is HTC's cash cow, Monster is clearly on the hunt for new friends.
