"Sound quality and balance are unreal! Blown Away!"4.5 starson by Dan_E12
Pros: Sound quality is amazing! The balance in the lows, mid-lows, mids, mid-highs, and high are spot on! Great inner ear seal, and SO comfortable! Package comes with Super Tips as well, a great plus!
Cons: Cable is somewhat short and feels a little flimsy. Couldn't find a set with integrated ControlTalk. You pay for the Monster name if you pay retail.
Summary: These are hands down the best in-ear headphones I've ever heard. The out of box balance to these things is just mind boggling. They have done such a great job at making sure the sound is full bodies and round. I love heavy lows, and these things pack a punch! It's important to get a proper ear seal however, but once you do, they will shake your skull. Tight and powerful bass, not sloppy. Sound tested with several types of music and was impressed song after song. I didn't want to sacrifice heavy lows for sound quality, and was so surprised at these head phones because they delivered beyond anything I was expecting.
I am a sound technician at a local mega church and get the privelage to test products from a vast array of high end audio companies. Our band uses Shure SE530's...The Turbine Golds give them a serious run for their money! I've convinced a couple members to switch already! I have tried everything from Shure, Dre Beats Tour to Ditty Beats, Klipsch, and many others - The Monster Turbine Pro Gold Edition have made me a believer!
They are expensive if you pay retail - so be prepared if you don't have any connections at Monster or an electronics store. They are worth every dime I spent though!
4.5/5 stars solely on the difficulty in finding a pair with ControlTalk and on the seemingly sub-par construction. The buds themselves I'm told are indestructible...but the buds wont work if the chords fray or wear. Sound quality is 5/5 no question.
