Monster is entering the game accessory market with the help of EA Sports. The two companies unveiled the EA Sports MVP Carbon gaming headphones by Monster at International CES.

The EA Sports MVP Carbon headphones will hit retailers in February for a price of  $269.95 and will be available in black and white. The collaboration marks the first time a game developer and headphone manufacturer have combined efforts to create an unprecedented experience in sound and gameplay.

Monster, a world leader in sound best known for engineering Beats by Dr. Dre, designed the headphones for maximum comfort and performance. Working with EA Sports allowed the company to create the surround sound intensity the way game developers intended.

The goal for Monster was to use the company’s cutting-edge technology to provide audio that creates a totally immersive gaming experience. In doing so, Monster is introducing a new feature called Monster High Definition Headphone Surround (HDHS). Powered by a proprietary surround processing method called AstoundSound, Monster HDHS delivers the most realistic, high definition sound for games, music and movies. Monster HDHS goes beyond conventional 5.1 surround sound for a new level of impact and intensity without using multiple speakers and separate processors.

In addition, the EA Sports MVP Carbon headphones feature Monster’s most sophisticated on-ear 30mm driver design for gaming and music. The headphones also incorporate the Gamebox, a new type of mix amplifier and processor specifically engineered to work in conjuction with Monster HDHS. The multiplatform mix amp offers seamless compatibility with PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Wii U and PC.

Of course, Monster and EA Sports want to ensure a comfortable feel. The EA Sports MVP Carbon headphones feature a convenient on-ear form factor and size, as well as a headband with precision crafted materials to provide maximum comfort and the proper clamping force needed to hold the headphones in place. Breathable materials allow gamers to wear the headphones for longer gaming sessions and foldable arms make packing and traveling a breeze.
