Noel Lee, the Head Monster, noted: “Monster has always been committed to developing products and technologies that make music sound better, but we’re also a family business that feels just as strongly about doing everything we can to share the success we’ve had and give something back. That’s why we’re so pleased to be able to join in offering the RED Special Edition Beats Solo Headphone. This launch allows us to share a product with the world that will help people not only get more enjoyment from the music they love, but know that they have contributed to helping make the world a better place.”

“Music is part of (RED)’s DNA. We were co-founded by Bono, we sponsor (RED) NIGHTS concerts, we partner with companies like Apple and Shazam. Partnering with Beats by Dr. Dre builds on this and gives music fans a way to help reverse the epidemic of AIDS in Africa by listening to the music they love,” said Susan Smith Ellis, CEO, (RED). “Through partnerships like this, we’ve generated more than $140 million to support the Global Fund’s fight against AIDS. (RED)’s growth is based in part on people like Dr. Dre, Lady Gaga, Jimmy Iovine and Noel Lee making a stand against a merciless epidemic. We’re proud to have them partner with us.”

The new Monster RED Special Edition Beats Solo Headphone will be available in early February at several US and UK retailers with an MSRP of $229.95.
