Monster Cable Turbine Pro Professional In-Ear Headphones (Playback 25)
21 September 2010
Excerpt: Headphone Buyer’s Guide know that we think quite highly of Monster Cable’s Turbine in-ear headphones (priced at $150). They are generally well balanced, comfortable to wear, and expressive—in short, one of the better ‘phones we’ve heard at their price point. Since the Turbines have few shortcomings, and their “sins” are mostly minor sins of omission, it’s only in side-by-side comparison with even higher performance (and, of course, more costly) models that one realizes...
Monster Cable Turbine Pro Copper Edition (Playback 31)
21 September 2010
Excerpt: Monster Cable’s Turbine Pro Copper Edition headphones ($399.99) may look similar to the firm’s Turbine and Turbine Pro Gold models, but they are based on different technology and sound considerably different from their siblings. In fact, the Copper Editions claim, along with Monster’s Miles Davis Tribute.
Conclusion: Monster did it. The Turbine Pro is better in every way than the Turbine . Its sound is smoother, more detailed, and fits a greater variety of musics better. Combine that strength with sinewy, quality cabling and you have an earphone which is worth the asking price. But Monster also outfitted the Turbine Pro to work with home amps and soundboards via a 6,3mm adapter. They also added a great fit kit including including foamies, and beefed up the overall build quality.
Pros: Great bass-footed sound with good balance, Detailed and mature, Good accessory package, Much improved build quality, Resistant to crystallisation from body oils and sweat, Great guarantee
Cons: Cable is microphonic, y-Split and cable plug fenders are lightly suspect for cracking
Conclusion: I threw a variety of demanding content at the Monster Turbine Pro In-Ear headphones, and they handled it all with power and precision that at times exceeded my expectations. The price is the only real sticking point--although there are more expensive models out there--but if you're looking for a no-compromise earbud for high-end portable enjoyment, you've found it.
Pros: Outstanding sound quality, period., Snug eartips serve up big sound with minimal ambient noise, Cool looks, solid build
Cons: One of the priciest in-ear headphones we've seen in a while
Excerpt: These Monster in-ears feel like a meatier, weightier prospect than some rivals. The packaging claims that the PROs produce "bass so deep that it sounds like a subwoofer in your ears". We can't say that we've ever wedged a sub down our ear canals, but what we can say is that the Monsters are certainly very generous in the bass department.
Pros: Eyecatching design, serious bottom end grunt, great smoothness
Monster Turbine Pro Copper Professional In-Ear Speakers
16 June 2010
Excerpt: Lately, we have been privileged to review some outstanding higher-end accessories for the iPhone (and yes, iPod, too). One of the accessory categories that is particularly fun to review are earphones. And even though the audio rule of physics still applies – as you spend more and more the difference in improvement gets smaller and smaller – there are some incredible sounding earphones out there.
Summary: В целом звук чистый, приятный. Но на каких-то средне-низких частотах начинают дребезжать - в результате Blind Guardian, скажем, слушать невозможно. На более спокойной музыке звучат очень хорошо, но тогда зачем им такие басы?
Excerpt: Monster continue à développer sa gamme de casques avec des arguments différents suivant les modèles. Le Turbine Pro Gold arrive en promettant un grave qui restitue les notes les plus basses de la musique sans distorsion et donne l’impression de disposer d’un véritable subwoofer.
Pros: Très bon équilibre global, Timbres réalistes, Utilisation simple et agréable
