Monster and Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel have recently partnered on a series of gaming headphones, which have been officially launched at E3 2016. Monster is well known throughout the industry for their headphones, speakers, and cables, and their Pure Monster Sound. Even if you don’t follow competitive gaming, there’s a decent chance that you’ve heard of Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel. While he has stepped back from competitive gaming, Fatal1ty has been one of the best known gamers in the world.
When these two get together, you can expect great things. First announced at CES 2016 (where I had the opportunity to play against — and get repeatedly killed by — Fatal1ty at the Monster booth), Monster has officially launched the Fatal1ty by Monster Performance Series gaming headsets at E3 2016.
Two models have been officially announced, the FxM 100 (SRP $99.95) and the FxM 200 (SRP $139.95). Both models feature a specially tuned version of Pure Monster Sound aimed at gaming, with custom-built drivers and noise isolating earcups. Monster touts the headphones’ pinpoint audio accuracy, giving you the advantage you’ll need.
You can order both headphones now on MonsterProducts.com, or BestBuy.com. Each site shows a discount off of the MSRP, so if you’re looking to jump on either pair of headphones, now would be a good time to act. You can read more about the Fatal1ty by Monster headphones in the full press release below.
