Summary: First off is full disclosure. I received the Turbine Pro Golds free of charge from Monster to review as part of their “Turbine Challenge” and will get to keep them after the review. I’ve been known to be critical of Monster’s marketing and legal practices in the past but I do my best to remain as honest as I can and I’m not going to misrepresent the merits of this product based on their other products, what I think of other things the company does, or what they send me...
Pros: Smooth and forgiving sound, Not fussy about amps.
Cons: Poor ergonomics and comfort, occasional bass bleed, and relatively narrow genre bandwidth.
Excerpt: After finding the best supertip for me, the sound was very good BUT only worked with my ipod and iPhone. When I connected it to an extension cord from the audio system in my room, the sound volume and quality was diminished and sounded quite horrible. But if I connected it directly into the amplifier, the sound was spot on. But then who is going to stand a couple of feet from their sound system? So I am not so satisfied with this product because of this limitation.
