Unfortunately I had to ding a star on these. While the sound quality is awesome and the fit works well in the gym, my control talk started flaking out on me after a particuarly hard run on the treadmill. First the volume up button stopped working. Then both volume up and down. Then they would cause my iPod to randomly jump to the next track or fast forward. I called Monster to get a warranty replacement. I have to say I was not overly impressed with their customer service. They won't send out my replacement until they receive the defective pair and evaluate them. I was supposed to pay for shipping the defective unit too, but they sent me a fed-ex label after complaining about that. They only had blue in stock to replace them. I asked about the prevelence of the problem, to which he responded that "there is a new version out". These are on a closeout sale now, so I think they've redesigned them, hopefully have fixed the problem, and moved on. I wonder if I will get the next gen of these when my replacement pair fails in 4 months or so? I can't believe that they claim you can put them in the washer machine yet they can't withstand some sweat in the gym.
So no apology from Monster, no quick replacement (2 weeks is what I was told), no assurance it won't happen again. Can't imagine that attitude will do well for their brand! I paid a premium price for these, I would have expected premium customer service when things went wrong. At least Amazon turned around my initial return quickly when my very first pair wouldn't seat right in my left ear because the pivot of the earbud was too stiff.
With the new pair, I will be more careful about getting sweat on the control talk piece.Read more ›
The short version: In general, after two days of listening to an eclectic range of songs, I am quite impressed with the Monster Immersion In-Ear Headphones with ControlTalk. Monster's in-ear headphones bested the previous pairs I had before-- Klipsch's s4i, and Apple's premium in-ear headphones. Apple's earphones bested the Monsters with great mids and highs, but fell flat in bass response. Klipsch's mids and highs sounded comparibly similar to Monsters, if not slightly clearer, but Monsters bass was even better than Klipsch's-- a very welcome surprise to me. Compared to the Bose's Triport headphones, the mids and highs of the Monsters were less pronouced while the bass sounded slightly warmer. In general, while mids and highs were slightly muted with the Monster iSport earphones, the warm punchy bass (an absolute must for me) was more than adequate to elevate them as my new favorite headphones.Read more ›
I'm returning this for a refund. Thankfully, the good people at Amazon are making it easy for me to do so. Five stars for Amazon.com customer service, negative stars for the product.
