  • Conclusion: Monster's earphone designs are often outlandish, and the Turbine PROs are no different. However, the sound is more refined than the look of the buds might suggest. Make sure you like the all-metal look though, as a chunk of the RRP is caused by it.
  • Pros: Monster's Turbine PRO earphones do indeed offer great bass response, but it's not the hyperactive boom you might expect given the buds' larger-than-life look. But they can stand up to some of the best bass tones of rivals from Westone and Shure. If you want a pair of earphones that have a look as powerful as they sound, the Monster Turbine PROs are fab. The shiny metal housing of each earpiece might be too much for some, but they're much less of an acquired taste than...
  • Cons: At £250, Monster is positioning the Turbine PROs up against big hitters from Ultimate Ears, Shure and Westone. It's stiff competition, especially if you don't fall in love with the look. Thanks to their rugged metal construction, the Monster Turbine PROs are heavier than plastic buds and have a habit of falling out of your ears if you don't re-seat them occasionally. Not the best news for runners.

  • Excerpt: That’s right, Monster Cable, the company well known for its rather expensive audio cables and peripherals has taken the opportunity to delve into the headphone market. The difference with their entry, they are doing it big time. In January of this year the TechwareLabs staff was on hand at the Monster press conference when they announced the Turbines and their partnership with Ludacris to help promote the entry.

  • Summary: В России стоимость гарнитуры составляет от семи до десяти тысяч рублей. Учитывая, что эти «монстры» не принадлежат имиджевой серии с шильдиком by Dr. Dre, цена немалая. Зато тут есть хороший комплект поставки, трехкнопочный пульт ДУ, гарнитуру приятно использовать и с iPhone 4, и с iPad, и с iPod Classic, мне больше всего понравилось с «четверкой».

  • Summary: Turbine отличаются высокой перегрузочной способностью, звучат с приятным тональным балансом, имеют широкий диапазон. Бас очень интенсивен, верхний регистр передается свежо и прозрачно, лишь немного акцентирована «жёсткая» область 6 - 9 кГц. Маленький кейс из очень мягкого и приятного на ощупь кожзаменителя, по две пары одинарных и тройных резиновых втулок, солидная брошюра - вот что находишь в коробке помимо самих «турбин».
