Customer Reviews

The sound isolation is not amazing, but it is very good.
JustBayIt
I can't vouch for Monster's repair or warranty service on these yet, because I haven't sent them in for repairs yet.
Senescence
I was able to find a perfect fit with the included foam super tips and they fit snug and comfortably.

It seems that there's an ongoing debate between the Turbine Gold and Monster Miles Davis Tribute Jazz In-Ear Headphones, with prices so close to each other. And rather than inundate you with my theories about proper break-in and a sea of frequency charts, I think I can help sum this debate up as such:

If you like Jazz, somewhat less "look at me!" style, and are interested in a hard case with a Miles Davis CD, get the Tributes.
If you plan to use your iPhone / Android as your audio source, don't mind looking a bit flashy, and want to save a few bucks, get these.

I've been switching between these and the Tributes (as well as Shure SE535's) for the past three weeks, and through countless songs, the differences between the Turbine Gold and Miles Davis Tributes are so subtle, there's not a universal "This one has more bass, that one has better mids."

To be honest, unless these are on sale, you might want to consider getting the plain old Turbines. Having owned those as well, the dynamic range of the Pro Gold / Tribute models are better, but not enough to justify the price gap.

This is my first pair of high quality headphones. It was without a doubt, one of the best decisions of my life regarding technologies. The lows are amazing, not even mentioning the bass. The bass is deep, but does not pound in your ears. The highs and mids are not the strongest part, but if you want that, go for the Coppers. The build is very strong. I do not imagine these breaking. They feel a little weighted, which reassures you that it is not made completely out of plastic. The boxing is amazing and they give you more than enough ear buds to give you a good fit. The sound isolation is not amazing, but it is very good. If you do not get a good fit, the sound is average, but once you get the right seal, the sound will blow you away. A five star product.

I don't really think these require a super long review. They are amazing. They're the best earphones I've ever used. I got them on sale for 149.99 which is an incredible price. Although I feel like they're worth 300 dollars. These blow beats away. Buy them

i bought these around christmas time last year, so they were on an incredible sale (about $180). i highly suggest waiting around then! it makes a hundred dollar difference... these headphones have literally changed my listening experience. I used to think that my Etymotic Research hf3's were incredible, but I have not picked them up once since I bought these. My favorite part of these are the clear, crisp, deep bass. it has amazing midtones and a dynamic range, but the bass blows everything out of the water. the control talk is very handy, especially when it's cold outside and I dont want to take my gloves off to change the song. Initially, i thought that the gold color would chip off immediately, but they have held up amazingly for the past year! I have never ever had a problem with these.

I am also incredibly impressed with the customer service of Monster. First off, the accesssories they include in the package is outstanding. they include everything anyone could possibly want, even 2 different genuine leather cases! it comes with SO MANY eartips... it would be impossible for someone to not find their size. I love the many options it comes with. Another part I really appreciate is the AMAZING warranty. I was so sick of earphone companies that only replace earphones if it is a manufacturer's defect. Monster replaces your earphones once NO QUESTIONS ASKED. even if you stepped on them, or dropped them in water, whatever. I think that is absolutely fabulous customer service. I remember calling up customer service once too, and they were so kind and willing to help with whatever I needed. Lovely people!

The Monster Turbine Gold IEMs has some of the best sound quality I have ever heard. Its signature sound is high quality booming bass. Mids and highs were very clear. Definitely suits pop, hip hop, rap, and other bass-heavy genres. However, the original price is sky high and the sound quality is not worth that much. If you can get 40%+ on these IEMs, they are a pretty good deal but...

Unfortunately, the build quality is a HUGE deal breaker. My IEMs broke after one day of use. To try to make up for it, Monster has a lifetime replacement warranty for defects. The problem is, you will be sending these back so many times, the shipping costs will start to add up. Monster tries to sweeten the deal even further by offering a two-time replacement warranty for any reason. Yes, you can take a hammer, smash these IEMs to bits, and still get a brand new pair from Monster. Now this is a great policy! Still, it's not worth the effort to continually replace them. I returned mine for a refund.

As for the other features of the Turbine Golds, the ControlTalk buttons were easy to press. Also, all of the earbud sizes didn't fit me perfectly. Be warned that you may have the same issue. If you decide to get custom ear tips, you will be adding to the cost of these already-expensive IEMs.

All in all, sound quality is top of the line if you can get these at a discount. If you are willing to take a risk on the build quality and earbud size issues, then these are perfect for you. Otherwise, stay away.
