Monster Offers White Version of Beats Headphones, Charges $700 For No Discernable ReasonS

If there's a company out there that engages in price gouging more blatantly than Monster, I've never heard of them. Today's offense: charging $700 for a pair of $350 headphones painted white.

The headphones in question are the Dr. Dre Beats headphones, a nice pair of over-the-ear cans with noise cancellation and a cellphone mic built in.

Now, Monster and some guy names Ron Herman are offering up white versions of the Beats in a limited edition run. The price for the new paintjob is $699. That is the only difference between the two sets of headphones: the color.

Seriously Monster, I know you like money, but good lord, at least try to disguise your unquenchable greed a little bit. [CrunchGear]
