Monster Turbine High Performance In-Ear Speakers

 

Like the company's Dr. Dre–branded line, the Turbine provides a heavy dose of low end.

Lightweight. Tremendous bass response. Carrying case, fit kit included.

Inconsistent fit. Can be uncomfortable if worn for long periods.

Monster Turbine In-Ear Speakers

 

and packs some seriously deep bass response. Most earphones that attempt to deliver booming bass end up distorting or muddying sound, but Monster keeps things clear. Fans of hip-hop, electronic music, and hard rock are likely to enjoy this pair, but if...

Monster's booming Turbine features some of the deepest yet still well-defined, bass response you can find in a pair of in-ear 'phones.

Monster Turbine review

 

Monster may be new to the headphone market, but it's off to a good start. The company recently introduced the Beats by Dr. Dre , a full-size over-the-ear headphone , which was codeveloped by the master hip-hop artist and producer. That headphone...

Monster's Turbine in-ear headphone delivers excellent sound quality, with strong bass; robust, all metal construction; handsome carry case.

Eartip fitting may require patience.

Monster's Turbine in-ear headphone looks, feels, and sounds like a much more expensive model.

Monster Turbine Pearl

 

The Monster Turbine Pearls are a set of in-ears that emphasize design. These are definitely some of the more stylish in-ears we've had in for review. Unlike other high-design headphones we've reviewed, however, the Turbine Pearls don't charge a crazy...

We don’t often get in a pair of design-oriented headphones that are actually a decent buy. The Turbine Pearls didn’t have the greatest audio quality, but it wasn’t bad either. Additionally, unlike many other stylized headphones, the Pearls are actually...

Monster Turbines Headphones Review - Intro

 

The Monster Turbines are a set of in-ears from the popular cabling company. The Turbines feature an interesting design, which is hard to pull off on such a small piece of plastic. We thought that the Turbines were comfortable, but they tended to come...

They look better than the average in-ear ; Good frequency response, max volume, and tracking. Above average isolation and leakage control ; Very portable ; The Turbines are a good deal from their price

No cord guards might lead to durability issues ; More distortion that we typically see, compared to other in-ear headphones they don't have great isolation or leakage control ; Tend to fall out ; Unfortunately, there are a lot of great deals at this price

The Monster Turbines have the unfortunate position of being better than average at a price point full of excellent headphones. They received good scores and aren't too overpriced, but then again we really couldn't recommend them over all the other,...

Review: Monster Turbine Pearl High Performance In-Ear Speakers

 

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...

Monster Turbine Mobile High Performance In-Ear Speakers with ControlTalk Review

 

Today I am looking at the Monster Turbine Mobile High Performance In-Ear Speakers with ControlTalk. These high-end earphones have a control on the cable for music phones and iPods. If you are looking for a good set of earphones and you have a big...

Comfortable ; Comes with lots of tips ; Carry case ; Phone controls and mic

Expensive

The only thing that isn't great about the Monster Turbine is the price, but you get what you pay for in the earphone market today. The Monster Turbine earphones sound great and will work with your music phone.
