Excerpt: 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.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: 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.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: I use these headphones for just about everything from working out to traveling long distance - for which these headphones work great. HOWEVER, my initial purchase from Monster was a Dr. Dre branded set of in-ears, which lasted a whole week before loosing sound in one bud.
Excerpt: These were actually a pretty good pair of in-ears...for the 3 months that they lasted. Now I am no expert but these were pretty good with my wide variety of musical interests. Unfortunatley after 3 months one side stopped working and the other after another month.
Excerpt: Makes a good gift and is well worth its price. Not only are they tough and durable but housed fully in metal and could last a lifetime! GET THESE HEADPHONES NOW!!!! I can assure you, you wont regret it even the least bit!
Excerpt: 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.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Design, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I'll say right off the bat that this is my first pair of remotely high-end headphones, and one of my first major reviews. So try to forgive incorrect terminology or generally novice-sounding terms.
Pros: Decent isolation, powerful bass and low end, overall good sound quality (with right fit)
Cons: Just don't work in my ears, occasionally muffled mids and vocals
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: 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: This is my first time using a pair of decent IEMs, I have to say, I am not disappointed.
Fit : This is the turbine's worst aspect. I have rather small ear canals and used the smallest round tips it came with, it was perfectly fine, but the smallest tri-flange tip refused to go inside my ear canal...
Pros: LOTS of accessories, metal housing, Monster Cable brand name.
Cons: Very hard to find the perfect fit, microphonic cable
