Monster Introduces FM Transmitters For iPod

Monster Introduces FM Transmitters For iPod nano, iPod shuffle and iPod video

The Newest Addition to Monster’s MP3 Family of Products Allows Enthusiasts
to Play Stored Music Wirelessly Through Their Car Stereo Systems

Monster is proud to announce the launch of iCarPlay Wireless Plus for iPod
nano and video and iCarPlay Wireless Plus for iPod Shuffle. Monster’s
latest products allow iPod users to play stored music wirelessly through
virtually any FM station on their car radios while simultaneously charging
their iPods.

“Ever since we released the iCarPlay Wirless Plus for iPod, it has been an
incredibly popular product. That product made it convenient for these iPod
enthusiasts to listen to their tunes through their car stereo systems,”
explained Noel Lee, The Head Monster. “We are now releasing two products so
that iPod nano, video and shuffle users can have the same high quality
music experience and keep their players charged at the same time. These new
products include digital FM tuning, programmable presets and fast charging
for clear stereo sound wherever they go.”

With some FM transmitters, finding an FM frequency clear enough to play
stored music through can be difficult, especially while driving through
different areas and terrain. To counteract these issues, iCarPlay Wireless
Plus for nano, video and shuffle can be tuned to almost any clear FM
station, so the music lover has full FM tuning flexibility in getting the
best possible sound.

Connecting is easy. Simply tune the car stereo to any clear FM station,
tune iCarPlay Wireless Plus to the same station, hit play on the player,
and that’s it. The presets can be changed any time a clearer station is
desired. For added convenience, you can preset up to three of your favorite
stations.

For added flexibility and convenience while listening, these two products
feature Monster Smart Digital Charging technology that rapidly re-charges
the connected iPod.

Additional Monsterous features include:

* Three backlit programmable “favorite station” preset buttons
* Easy-to-read, dimmable LED display
* Digital FM tuner — change presets when clearer reception is needed
* 24k gold contacts for optimal signal transfer and corrosion resistance
* 3.3 foot (1 meter) cable for convenient connection

The iCarPlay Wireless Plus for nano and video retails for $79.95. The
CarPlay Wireless Plus for shuffle retails for $59.95.

For those who don’t have an iPod, Monster has also launched a new solution
with RadioPlay 300. The RadioPlay 300 has many of the same features as
iCarPlay Wireless Plus, including the ability to tune into any FM stations
and three programmable reset buttons. The RadioPlay 300 works with portable
MP3 players, CD players, DVD players and laptops. The RadioPlay 300 retails
for $59.95.

Other New Products for iPods include:

iTV Link for iPod with video and iPod photo directly connects the iPod to a
TV so users may enjoy movies, music videos, TV shows and photos on a bigger
screen. iPod video is capable of delivering high-quality video and has
enough storage capacity for hundreds of movies. Monster iTV Link features a
dock connector for the iPod and S-video and stereo audio outputs that
easily connect to a TV. Monster’s advanced S-video connection delivers a
brighter, more colorful and detailed picture. A composite video adapter is
also included in case the TV doesn’t offer S-video input. iTV Link delivers
high-quality video and stereo audio connections to get the best picture and
sound from movies and music on the iPod. iTV Link retails for $39.95.

style. The iPod nano packs a lot of audio into a small, compact package

the face from scuffs and scratches. Also included is an iBumperKeeper for
ultra-portability. This nylon lanyard keeps the controls right within reach

the iSlimCharger a breeze. Plus, built-in Monster Smart Digital Charger
technology delivers just the right charge that the iPod needs for fast,
reliable charges. New iPods no longer ship with an AC wall charger, so this
product is a perfect complement for people who want to be able to recharge
their iPod via a wall outlet instead of through their computer. The
iSlimCharger retails for $29.95

iCarCharger for iPod Shuffle charges the iPod Shuffle using a car’s 12-volt
socket so it is always charged up and ready to go. This product features
Smart Digital Charging for fast charges and maximum battery life. The

the iCarCharger is on “trickle” mode, activated when the iPod Shuffle is
fully cbarged. The unique flush-mount adaptor design minimizes dashboard
clutter and features a 10 ft. cable. The iCarCharger for iPod Shuffle
retails for $29.95.
