"Only" a different Turbine
Date: Sunday, August 14, 2011
First of all, they sound exactly the same as the original Turbines.Their design is way better, and they are also more durable because of the rugged strain relief, which the original Turbines lack.You simply can't believe how great they sound... Perfect, solid bass, natural mids and crystal clear highs. And none of the freqencies overtoning the others. Moreover, they are great for all genres.The Turbines, all 4 versions, are great. In order to find out which version is the one for you, go to your local market and test them. You will definitely notice differences between them.One last thing: People complaining that the construction is flimsy or that the 'phones are not worth the price because of bad sound have either received a fake pair of Turbines or hit them against the wall for 15 minutes every day. I mean, you don't pay that much money for something and then don't take good care of it. Just don't sit on them and don't let them get wet and everything is fine.

This is an amazing product. Everything is prefect except for it's constructions. The sound quality is even better than the once reproduced from a SOLO HD's. SOLO HD's bass is not as strong as the once from the turbine's.
The only downside is it's constructions because once I accidentally dropped it and it wasn't from a high distance it was just like 3 feet, but a piece from the metal housing chipped off. But overall these are amazing, if you are into music than these would be prefect for you at such a low price.
Also I wouldn't recommended these if you are a really clumsy or sport person because as I said before the constructions aren't that good so if you drop it that would be really sad. Overall this is an amazing product.
Great Sounding Product

These earphones are the first earphones I have used over the 100 USD mark. Originally, I was aiming to get the Miles Davis Tribute or the Pro Coppers, but these being half the price, I opted for these instead. Whilst choosing a product, the salesman at the store had informed me that the best product in this price range were the turbines and not the beats or some of the other earphones: another reason I got these. The presentation of the box is very important to me, and I found these to be bigger, heavier, and to have a more caring, loving touch. Other in-ear headphones I had were imbedded in a piece of white plastic, and the presentation did not appeal to me, but for the Pearls it looks like Monster packed passion as well as the products. Well done Monster. Opening the box, I was most astonished with the number of tips. Although I was able to find a comfortable fit, it took well over 40 minutes to find the best pair. They could be put in the box wit a little more organization, but it's not a big deal. The right size really does matter. I noticed a big difference with the sound quality with the correct tips. Very important this. In terms of aesthetics, these hit the spot. They were wonderful to look at, different from all the others which I have seen, and I have received compliments on them from friends. In construction and durability, I found that these are much stronger, and that the cables were more tangle resistant then the average headphones. I was anxious that the metal body would be too heavy or get cold in winter, but this is not the case. The ear loops do make the buds stick to the ear, and are made of durable materials, but they do get slightly uncomfortable at long periods of time. In sound quality, these are much clearer than the ones I have used. Crisp highs and good mids. the bass was not as strong as I had wanted, but it was made up by the clarity and evenness of the sound quality. Overall, this is a big improvement from the average earbuds and I definitely do recommend these.
