Pros thumping bass
the weight feels pretty legit... these things are heavy.
Cons UNCOMFORTABLE especially after a couple of hours of listening
earbuds dont seem to fit well
no sound isolation
Summary to be honest, i cant hear a noticeable difference between this and the usual v-moda's i use. but i like my bass heavy so... theres probbably a slight difference between the mids and the highs but not worth the extra $300. if you're looking for something thats worth its cost, get klipsch image s2's or any v-modas.

Pros Beautifully built and durable. Very pretty. Lifetime replacement even if your dog eats them! The sound is amazing. It's a listening experience. Accurate non-muddy bass, warm mids and very good highs. Excellent quality at low volume and no distortion at hi
Cons The ear tips are good, you need a learning curve with Monster's tips but once you get them dialed in they are quite comfortable. I went aftermarket and the Comply T400s transform this set removing any initial objections. The bass can be over the top but w
Summary I have a Walkman and a Sansa that I listen to music on. Everything is 128kbps and these buds rock. I am dumbstruck by bad reviews. My Walkman will drive these buds off a cliff! You like bass, look no further. My Walkman and Sansa both have an equalizer which I needed in order to dial these in for all they are worth. The stock settings just do not do justice to these Monsters. I tried these with a good DAC amp and there was no discernible improvement... not that there was any necessary. Monsters need about 30 to 40 hours to loosen up a bit. Like good wine, they get better with age. External sound isolation is adequate and the music plays dead center in my head. Sound stage is good, if not on it then you're in the first row! If you have never used in ear monitors it may take a few days before your ears become accustomed to having something stuffed in them. Unlike other manufacturers these do not completely fill the ear canals which is fine with me. These buds are not the smallest around and you probably won't fall asleep with your head on a pillow. Bottom line is they are a bit pricey but for my money they are a good value.
Pros Silicon + Foam hybrid = amazing. Sounds great.
Cons Pricey .
Summary I first listened to these headphones in an airport, it was actually the gold version of this same set. I feel in love with them right there.
At the time I was using my Shure 530's, which is amazing on its own. There was something about this set that made me want to buy them. At first listen they had a very good mix with a good oomph of Bass. The problem was 2 things; I was listening on the Gold set, which is more bass heavy then the Coppers, and before I fly i listen to Bassy music, so obviously I was in love with the extra bass that was more prominent than the Shure 530's.
After I received the Coppers I noticed that it wasn't the same. I still love them, they do have amazing sound quality. They do have very good bassy notes. They don't get as loud as the Shure 530's which I guess is a perk.
What I love most about them though is the Ear Tips. They're incredible, With tips on silicone mixed with a housing of Foam, they keep the noise out, and they keep 'you' silent. I use these headphones as my monitors when recording because they are ridiculously quiet. Like if a ninja wanted to listen to music while doing their ninja thing then these are the pair he or she should get. These are a great pair to bring around to, they're light and versatile.
Buy these if you want great sound that is light and efficient. The Lifetime warranty is a perk too. THe first time you want a new pair there is a "no questions" asked policy. It could be completely your fault that they broke and you get a brand new pair with only paying S&H. It's great.
Pros They look nice
Cons Disposable build quality, waiting for hours trying to reach warranty service on the phone
Summary The worst headphones I ever bought and the most expensive, not worth it. Klipsch S-4 sound much better and are built more solid.
