Well, wouldn't you know it? Monster Cable has started a trend, and as you'd expect, it's truly awful in every way, shape and form. After signing on a few "superstars" to brand their high-dollar earbuds, Live Nation has apparently discovered a similar trick. The difference? Lame packaging, low prices and compatibility with MP3 playas. We're hearing that these will be out soonish with a sub-$20 price tag and support from a variety of musicians... you know, the ones who couldn't care less what product their face gets slapped on. And before you ask, no, we aren't bitter in the least.


Okay, maybe a little.
