Nokia, Monster team for Purity Pro Bluetooth headphones

Nokia and Monster team up again for Purity Pro wireless headphones

Nokia has continued its partnership with Monster to deliver the new Purity Pro lineup of Bluetooth and NFC equipped headphones. The advantage of including NFC means that users can quickly pair the device over Bluetooth with a simple one-touch connection. The choice of colors also happens to align with the yet-to-be-formally-announced Nokia Lumia 820 Windows 8 smartphone.

Nokia claims that the headphones also offer an enhanced sound quality with the inclusion of Monster's active noise-cancelling technology. It says that the technology includes feed-forward and feedback technology for ambient and percussive noise cancellation. Both the noise-cancelling function and Bluetooth are automatically activated when the headphones are unfolded.

"With our Purity Pro, users can now enjoy unprecedented audio performance and advanced capabilities, with all the added benefits of a pure and seamless wireless connection," said Monster CEO, Noel Lee.

The Purity Pro is the second time Nokia has collaborated with Monster on a set of headphones. The Purity HD was introduced last October and was also aimed at Nokia's Lumia range. They featured a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency range with 40mm drivers, although Nokia has not detailed the technical capabilities of the new Purity Pro headset. The headphones also have a bypass function for continued listening by 3.5mm jack when the battery runs out of its charge, which is said to be good for up to 24 hours on the go.

The Nokia Purity Pro by Monster range will be available for 299 ($376) in Q4 this year.
