Back in the day Monster Headphones used to roll with Dre, helping launch the popular personal audio line Beats By Dre. Now though, Monster hangs with a new crew: Mike Sexton, Vince Van Patten (V.V.P) and the entire World Poker Tour posse. That’s right, the World Poker Tour picked up a new sponsor and now Monster Headphones are the official headphone of the WPT.
Before you go rushing out to pick up a pair so you can look “officially” awesome at at WPT Final Table…
So what does this mean for players? Not much. You can check out a pair at each of the stops to see if you want to purchase a set and everyone who makes a WPT final table gets a pair to wear when not on the air. While not necessarily a top 10 brand of headphones yet, Monster has a ton to choose from – in-ear and puffy over-ear styles running up to $250 or so.
There will also be plenty of product placement and the Monster Hand of the Day on the televised episodes, so get ready for that. Finally, here’s “Head Monster” Noel Lee as to why Monster thinks that they are a good fit for poker players in general:
At Monster, we understand poker players enjoy listening to their favorite tunes at the table since it keeps them focused. In many situations, from bad beats to tough decisions, listening to music keeps them from tilting, and we’re confident the WPT players will appreciate the quality and comfort of Monster headphones.
