Question: How does it compare to the Monster Inspiration Active Noise Canceling Headphones?
Answer: These are all-rounded headphones with a good balance in everything. I don't think Audio Technica can be compared to Monster since the latter focuses on only the poundy bass and aesthetics while the former pursues better sound quality and ergonomics. ATH m50x in my opinion, would be better than the Monster.

Question: This model has no battery (replaceable or rechargeable), right? Does it tend to drain the battery of your iPod / iPhone rapidly, to run its processor?
Answer: No battery required. Since using it, I have not noticed any difference with my iPod. It doesn't have a Mic in case you are looking for one.

Question: What is the difference between professional headphones and professional monitor headphones?
Answer: Often, dealers out there tend to use the phrasing interchangeably. Ideally what you want to do is check the website of the company that makes the headphones and verify what type of headphones they are and whether they designed as 'Closed-Back' or 'Open-Back' You'll then want to investigate consumer experiences with these headphones to help get your grasp on what to purchase.

When a headphone is claimed to be 'Monitors' it's basically saying we can use these headphones during live studio recordings and listen to our own playback with accuracy and minimal emphasis on the frequency spectrum of the human hearing.

Closed-Back type headphones (along with In-Ear Monitors) are often used in live sessions to help prevent microphones from picking up the sound leakage that regular headphones may give out. This is the primary reason you'll never see an 'Open-Back' designed set of headphones during a recording session as the mics will easily pick up sound leakage from these headphones plus the inability to even listen to your own playback during a recording if there's nothing to block out sound.

'Open-Back' types are sometimes used during post-recording to get more perceived instrumental separation during the track mixing stage of audio production but even Closed-Back types does a good enough job to get it all done.

You'll just have to dig a bit deeper for information on any headphones you shop for as their descriptions can sometimes be misleading. Take Dre's "Studio Headphone" for example. Even though it's labeled as such, it's a complete marketing gimmick since the headphone actually exhibits a ridiculous amount of emphasis on the bass spectrum. This make everything you record sound utterly bass heavy when the original input didn't output such a strong bass to begin with. Thus, it is not accurate. This completely throws the EQ settings off by a large amount where you'd be hard pressed to turn down the bass levels during mixing. If you were to play this mix back on the loudspeakers, you'll find that the final product is terribly weak on bass.

So always dig deeper before you buy headphones in this price range.
