35 YEARS STRONG: MONSTER AND THE NOEL LEE STORY
Monster Cable Products, Inc. was founded in 1979 by Noel Lee, then a laser-fusion design engineer at Lawrence-Livermore Laboratory. Also an audiophile and professional drummer, Noel left his laboratory work in 1974 to perform with his band, Asian Wood. His passion for music was to become the essence of Noel's professional life, shaping the destiny of Monster and informing the development of Monster Products today.
From when he first discovered the importance of speaker wires in creating quality speaker performance, Noel has been responsible for some of the biggest breakthroughs in audio performance. Some of these achievements including the world's first computer speaker in 1985, launching Monster Power's sophisticated line of power conditioning products and helped to launch Beats by Dre which revolutionised the high end headphone industry.
In 2012, Noel Lee received the Lifetime Achievement Award and nine innovative technologies awards at the prestigious Plus X Awards®, in recognition of a company dedicated to creating products that enhance the sound of quality music even further.
