Monster Turbine High Performance In-Ear Headphones - TURBINE

Developed in collaboration between legendary music producer and artist Dr. Dre, engineers from Monster Cable, and renowned industrial designer Robert Brunner, the Beats by Dr. Dre headphones bring a professional producer's experience to music fans everywhere.

Features:

  • Life is Too Short to Listen to Bad Headphones
    These days, we spend a lot of time listening to music with headphones. Every minute you spend enjoying your music should be the best it can be, but ordinary headphones can’t deliver the rich dynamics, full range, and emotional impact of your favorite music.
  • Sound So Incredible, We Had to Call Them In-Ear Speakers™
    Monster Turbines truly deliver the big sound, power, and clarity that you’d expect from full size high-end speakers. That’s why we had to call them speakers, not headphones.
  • Bass So Deep, it Sounds Like There’s a Subwoofer
    Unlike other headphones that can’t reproduce deep bass, Monster Turbines accurately reproduce even the lowest bass notes without distortion. You’ll hear thunderous low-end for incredible sound with every kind of music, from the thumping bass beats of hip hop tracks to the deepest pipe organ notes in classical compositions.
  • Less Noise, More Music
    We live in a noisy world that can interfere with your listening. Monster Turbines include multiple sound isolating eartips to give you a perfect fit that seals out unwanted noise for a pure listening experience.
  • Low mass, wide bandwidth driver for precision response
  • Black chrome all-metal housing eliminates vibration for pure sound
  • Monster sound isolating eartips in multiple sizes provide a perfect fit to seal out noise
  • Duraflex® protective cable jacket for maximum tangle resistance and durability
  • Tangle-free cable design resists snarls and knots

Lets skip the small talk and get right to the point.
Sound
1.
Great highs but, with female vocals can become messy a bit
2.
Tight bass with no looseness or flabbyness.
The tightness is due to the amount of effort Monster has put into making these as vibration free as possible.
3.
Mids are very warm and clear, a common theme of Monster headphones I've found(I own many, and i am open to reviews ;) wink wink)

Sound overall 9/10
1.
Highs are great but will fry out now and then on higher vocals. 7/10
2.
Mids are beautiful...just as they should be.
Nothing bad AT ALL to say here. 10/10
3.
Lows are tight and hit hard, without a hint of flabbyness. You can hear every note as if you were the instrument itself. 10/10

Design and Components

Cable:
This cable has many things going for it, like it's patented flux tube(or whatever it is) technology but, i find it to be far too thin after the split. They seem fragile like i will break them, i'm almost afraid to put them in the case the wrong way for fear of them tearing. Seeing as I've only owned these for a few weeks and i really don't know how durable they actually are i'm just making assumptions here. Only time will tell and maybe i should just go see a doctor about me perhaps having OCD.(I ramble)

Buds:
Nothing short of perfection from Monster here, they offer every conceivable ear tip here but, a little hint monster, *whisper* We like foam tips.

speaker housing:
Again, nothing bad from me in the department.
I love the fact that they have weight and aren't build like $19.99 SkullGarbage(haha). It makes me fell like they are in a class all of their own. They have a real professional look and feel to them that can attest to their functionality.

Durability:
2 weeks of use doesn't give me much time to work with but, i do hope these amazing headphones hold out for a long time. There has been no change in the last two weeks to the headphones except for breaking them in(sound burn-in).

In short i would recommend these to anyone who is or ever was serious to find out how their music actually sounds. These headphones are far more valuable then the price range they are marketed at and they rival some 300-500 dollar pairs I've seen. Great buy, would never think of buying audio equipment form any other company.

Yours truly, Matthew

Box states "Right Angle Connector Hugs the player to stay out of your way and reduce wear. Perfect for airline jacks" If the straight connect that was on my both pairs that i own. Then there ideal of a right angle must be some new angle that I never heard of. Angle should have a bend in it call me crazy but its just a thought.

Comments about Monster Turbine High Performance In-Ear Headphones:

I have had these headphones for less than a year now, and while they do sound good in terms of quality, I've already had to return them once and am in need of sending them in again to be replaced as I write this. I take very good care of the stuff, these have never been tangled and are always returned to their case after use, but twice now I've had the sound cut out of one side of the headphones. I'm disappointed with this in terms of the product quality; for the money spent of these they should definitely last more than 6 months with gentle, minimal use!

        I would like to thank you for the replacement.

        It was with great pleasure yesterday, I received the Turbine headphone product replacement as it was new.

        I thought Monster will not replace the product that I liked and appreciated so much ... for what the great quality that product is.

        I am also glad to see that Monster customer support is at the same quality level as their products... I will share this experience with all the people that I know ....that is for sure.

        Again thank you Monster for all your assistance.

        Comments about Monster Turbine High Performance In-Ear Headphones:

        These are one of the many IEMs that I buy. Sound quality of Monster Turbines are nice. The packaging and visual aesthetics on the product can compare to some of the higher end products. Bass and lower hz sounds are never muddled or distorted. Treble is warm and good sounding. It's a great product for it's price range.

        My only concern is that the metal housing is now loose; I've only used it for a few days. But, other than that, this product would be a great addition to those that like to enjoy their music without the hassle of larger products.

        Comments about Monster Turbine High Performance In-Ear Headphones:

        These are one of the best IEMs I've heard hands down. It's perfect for those who are finding fun and dynamic earphones. Of course it's not audiophile grade, but it does set a good first impression. The bass is BIG, I think it's even bigger and more controlled than beats, but maybe not as tight compared to the higher end Sony headphones. The lows are clear, the mids being in the right place, not too forward, and not too recessed as well. The highs might need an improvement, as well as the treble.

        Only complaints I have with these is the flimsy cabling. It doesn't have very good housing and thick cabling. I'm always scared of breaking the cable when it accidentally comes off. Putting on the sports clips that came with the Turbines is also difficult. Monster Supertips would be a nice addition but then again that's asking too much.

        I absolutely love these earbuds. They sound incredible, and nothing else comes to par with how great this makes my music sound. Sadly, it seems they don't last as long as I'd like them to. My first pair lasted just over a year, and I just lost sound in the right earbud of my warranty pair after about 2 years. It's a pain that they sound so good, and I don't want anything less, but then this happens and I can't afford to pay for them again.

          I use these headphones wherever I go to listen to music, for mobile gaming and to be able to work with minimal outside distractions. The sound proofing is quite effective, the sound quality is amazing and they're comfortable enough to wear for hours on end. The only problem I can think of with these headphones is that I have had to regularly change them every year. Monster replaces them for free each time, which is greatly appreciated considering how much they cost. However, that leaves me with low quality headphones for 2 weeks and the frustration of when I know their breakdown is imminent and I have to go through doing it.

            Very good Ear-buds for the price. I have had these buds for a little over a year and they're used everyday for about 4-5 hours. Hard hitting bass along with the extremely clear mids and highs, it's a no-brainer for the price. My only complaint is the thickness of the wire connecting to the buds, but that's nothing a small piece of heat shrink can't fix.

            When I first got these, the clouds parted and I was in heaven. The sound quality was amazing and the variety of ear tips allowed me to find the fit that best suited me. However, after a year of owning them, the left ear bud has putted out and sound no longer emits. I am very upset because I treasured these! The bass was good quality, but I wouldnt call them thumpy. So if youre into that, I wouldnt pick these. They enhance sound across the board, in all aspects. So for those who value rich and amplified sound, like I do, these are great. Unsure now if I should get the Pro version of these (considering the other defect reviews I've seen) or go with a completely different product or brand. I'd like to stay with Monsters, but I worry about durability. When I spend [$], I dont want to have to buy new headphones for a long while!
