Monster iPod accessories

Monster on Wednesday announced the release of seven new accessories for Apple's iPods and iPhones. This includes the new MonsteriCarPlay Wireless 1000 and iCarPlay Wireless 800 FM transmitters which also charge the iPhone and iPod. The 1000 can also be used in the home or office, thanks to a USB connection for charging that is compatible with standard USB drives or Monster's existing iSlimCharger or iCharger Travel USB wall chargers.

Either FM transmitter uses Monster's AutoScan 3D technology to scan the FM frequency range for the clearest signal. For minimal distortion, both output line-level audio signals.

Those who have an auxiliary input jack can opt for the Monster iCarCharger 1000, which uses a 30-pin dock connector to charge the device and plays audio via a 3.5mm audio cable. The device also has built-in controls on the back of the cigarette plug to navigate content without having to access an iPod's or iPhone's controls.

Users with cars that are still running cassette players can play content on their Apple devices via Monster's iCarPlay Cassette 800 which uses an improved cassette head over earlier models and a higher accuracy chipset. There is also a digital display and cable ports on four locations to accommodate nearly all cassette player types.

The iCable 800 and iCable 1000 provide a direct connection from iPhones and iPods via their headphone jacks and a car's or head unit's 1/8-inch audio cable input. The iCable 800 is available in 3- or 7-foot lengths, while the iCable 1000 can be had in a 7-foot length only.

Meant for in-home or on-the-go use, Monster's iSplitter 1000 lets users hook up two sets of headphones to the same device, giving them independent volume and mute control.

All of the accessories are now available, with online pricing set at nearly $100 for the iCarPlay Wireless 1000, $80 for the iCarPlay Wireless 800, $50 for the iCarCharger and $20 for the iCarPlay Cassette 800. The cables are priced at $15 for the 3-foot iCable 800, $20 for the 7-foot iCable 800 and $30 for the 7-foot iCable 1000, while the iSplitter 1000 costs nearly $20 online.
