Monster headphones grasps at relevancy with planned $300 million ICO

TwitterFacebook

If at first you don’t succeed, maybe try launching a $300 million initial coin offering

That appears to be the thinking of headphone manufacturer Monster Products, Inc., which last week filed a statement with the SEC laying out its plans to sell “Monster Money Tokens” in what could charitably be described as a last grasp at relevance. 

Coindesk spotted the SEC filing in question and noted that the company perhaps most famous for losing control of Beats just so happens to have also been “losing money for years.” Monster Products is the same manufacturer that, according to an in-depth Gizmodo report, developed Beats headphones but then signed away the technology rights to Interscope Records co-founder Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre.

Do you like in-ear headphones at all?

Plenty of smartphones out there come with a set of earphones in the package. This has been a tradition for years now and we sure hope it doesn’t change. But there is one thing that is a bit odd — manufacturers insist on shipping in-ear models pretty much universally. Apple goes against the grain with its EarPods being an earbud type of headphone, and Samsung did so for a while, too — the headset that was bundled with its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 smartphones was also of the bud type. But that changed with the Galaxy S8 onwards, with the new “designed by AKG” in-ear headphones.

As for the …

PSA: Be wary when updating your Sony headphones, faulty firmware was at large

Hey, remember that a few months ago Sony disclosed which ones of its earbuds and headphones are getting the Google Assistant via a software  update? 

The gadgets in questions were the tongue-twisting WF-1000X, WI-1000X, WH-1000XM2, WH-CH700N, WH-CH900N, and the H.ear on 2 WH-H900N. It seems that just yesterday the WH-1000XM2 and WI-1000X began receiving an over-the-air update bringing the 2.0.0 firmware update with Google Assistant on board, and while all should have been fine and dandy, multiple user reports on Reddit tell a harrowing tale of ‘bricked’ headphones …
