Embracing a beautiful aesthetic, the Special Edition Beats Solo HD Headphones from Monster Cable are the newest iteration of high end headphones from the company that sues everybody.  In an apparent change of heart, Monster will now donate $5 for every pair sold to the Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.  Very honorable indeed.

The headphones use Monsters proprietary ControlTalk technology, which allows for full track functionality when used with iPhones and iPods.  They also have a microphone and answer call button for taking phone calls.

At the price of over $250 for the pair, Monster will maybe donate a couple grand?  Still, it’s better than nothing, and I applaud Monster for trying to dig themselves out of that DB hole.  No word on exact release.
