Excerpt: Toward the end of 2008 Monster Cable announced the release of ambitious new in-ear headphones called the “Turbine In-Ear Speakers,” priced at $150. Three things caught my attention in this announcement.
Monster Turbine Pearl High Performance In-Ear Speakers
29 June 2011
Excerpt: Whether watching a movie, playing games or listening to music, many of us spend a lot of time with some sort of headphones in our ears. A while back I believed that the ubiquitous original iPod offerings were good enough. Later, I realized they were awful and bought some in ears buds.
Conclusion: The Monster Turbine in-ear headphones are good looking and attractive, offer good sound quality and that is why they are a little more expensive as compared to other Monster’s earphones available for the customers.
Pros: The Monster Turbine earphones provide brilliant and exceptional quality of sound and bass. They are made of metal which makes them strong and less vulnerable to breaking. Moreover it comes with a nice storage box.
Cons: This device is heavy and you require a lot of patience in order to fix them properly in the ear. Another major negative factor of this device is that they do not survive for long.
Summary: After a burn-in period over night, I have to say that these are the best IEMs I've ever listened to. Now, to be honest, you may need to take that with a grain of salt considering I'm only coming from a pair of JVC Marshmallows, and these Turbines will be my first foray into high-end IEMs.
Pros: Good bass, sound stage, durable, 3 year warranty, lots of accessories, easy identification of R and L channel, tangle-free cord, isolation.
Cons: On the heavy side, does not include foam tips, takes a bit of doing to get a good fit sometimes, straight plug,
Summary: After a six year love affair with a pair of Shure e4cs, they bit the dust & my wallet didn't allow for a similar investment. On my trip to J&R the day before an international flight, they were sold out of the Sure 215's I planned to try out. So I picked up the Turbines.
Summary: To be perfectly honest, when I first heard of the Turbines, I thought that they were just another Monster consumer product like Beats. That is, heavy, muddy, bloated bass, recessed mids and highs. When I first heard them, I was pleasantly surprised and I don't own these.
Pros: Strikes a good balance between neutral and fun, Build quality seems pretty good, L and R markings
Cons: Very hard to find correct insertion depth, Lacks detail, "Monster" branded
Summary: I got a pair of Monster Turbines for my birthday about a week ago. After I opened the box, I noted to myself that the smell wasn't that bad. I read somewhere about somebody complaining that they smelled atrocious, not the case with my pair.
Pros: Stylish, Lots of bass, not much bass bleed, good mids
Summary: В прошлом году, после скоропостижной кончины Sony MDR-EX38 купил a-JAYS Four. Обзорщики расхваливали на все лады дизайн и обещали фантастическое количества баса. Дизайн оказался крайне спорным (кромка корпуса натирала ухо, провода были тяжелыми и норовили вытянуть наушник), а баса там не оказалось...
