Monster, founded by Noel Lee in 1979, is a manufacturer of audio and video cables, speakers, remotes, and other electronic accessories. Lee, an audiophile and laser-fusion design engineer at Lawrence-Livermore Lab (and also a drummer) when he founded the company, chose the name "... Read MoreMonster" because it sounded "strong and powerful." Lee found that different wires, when hooked up to speakers, caused different kinds of audio performance. Thus, the Monster Cable (and, ultimately, Monster Products) was born. Monster is now the world's leading manufacturer in high-performance cables, and its products are sold in more than 80 countries. Monster also holds more than 200 patents. Monster's Category 6 Networking Cable is available in a 50-foot or 10- foot length. It is works with high-speed Internet modems, and the plugs have a stress-relief design to extend the life of the cord. Though Monster is best known for its cables, it has many different headphones as well. The iSport LiveStrong in-ear sweatproof headphone is meant for athletes; it has silicon ear cushions for extra comfort, and it's safe for use in water sports. Monster audio cables and headphones are available for in-home and out-of home use. The company is based in San Francisco and is actively involved in many charities and community organizations in the area, such as Segs4Vets, which helps provides Segways to disabled veterans who have lost a leg in combat or otherwise suffered a loss of mobility.
