"If you have the money, get them. If you don't, save up."5.0 starson by ERIC B. RIDER
Pros: Bass is jaw dropping. Construction is top notch. The lifetime warranty is the best I've ever seen. Beyond manufacture defects, Monster will replace your Turbines (once) if you do something really stupid. But only once. So don't crash your Monster.
Cons: On a cold day, the metal housing is......cold. The plugs are tempermental. You have to get them just right before you feel like an audiophile. Cord could be more burly. Prepare your wallet for The Big Empty.
Summary: I'm the one who keeps on buying low-cost in-ear headphones, only to go back and get another pair when they break. Why not do it right the first time? Since 1992, I have had the same pair of Sony MDR-V6 high-cost over-the-ear headphones.
Come on, it's made by MONSTER. Need I say more? With the exception of a more robust cord, they are probably going to last as long as the MDR-V6 have.....20 years as of this writing!
