Package Type: Standard PackagingColor: Gold
Packaging/presentation: A
Outer packaging is eye-catching but not "busy." Technical information is presented in a relatively clear and concise manner.
Inner packaging is mostly excellent. The gold housings stand out in a very eye-catching manner against the black molded plastic. The included carrying cases are very nice, though I would have preferred a more traditional mechanical snap closing on the purse-style case. My iPod is a hard-drive based model, and I'm rather leery of having magnetic closures around it in my luggage.
Extracting the inner tray in order to get to the manual, 1/4" adapter and extra ear tips is a bit aggravating the first time. Once the plastic had been flexed a bit, it seemed much easier to remove. This is nice, as it allows the heavy box to be used to store the IEMs when not in use.
The only negative note on the packaging/accessories is the "for audiophiles & audio professionals only" tag line printed on one case. It's a bit over the top and unnecessary, in my opinion.

Cable management/accessories: B+
The inclusion of a cable management clip is an excellent touch. No headphones I've owned at any price point included anything similar. Similarly, the cable slide is a nice way to keep a big loop of loose wire from snagging on things if you're moving around.
The gold-plated 1/4" adapter is a very high-quality part, comparable to the one included with my Audio Technicas. One thing that I would have liked to see included is a dual-miniplug adapter for those odd airline seat connections. My ATH-ANC7s came with one, and it's handy for traveling on those airliners with that type of connection.
Also, the cable is a bit short.

Let me start of by saying that these earphones do sound really good but only when they actually work and I have now twice had horrific experiences with their build quality and customer service. I bought these with a lot of excitement and after doing a lot of research I was convinced that these had fantastic sound quality and exceptional build materials backed with a lifetime guarantee.

When I first received them, the headphones started falling apart after the first two weeks. Initially one of the earphones would only output a very very low volume while the other was fine and soon after that both earphones started to break apart at the cable joint. I called customer support and they asked me to ship in the earphones for replacement within 3 weeks. I did and then for more than 3 months went through torture as Monster refused to provide me with any estimated time for resolution. I live in Australia so calling customer support means staying up till 2 am on a week night. I had to do this many times as Monster sis not even once respond to my many emails. When I was able to get them on the phone [1 hour waiting time on average] the only answer I ever got was that they were out of stock and did not know when they will be able to provide me with a replacement [all this time MTPCs were being sold with plenty of available stock through many retailers]. Request for a refund got me transferred to a "manager" who never got on the line after an additional hour and a half of waiting on the line [this all from a phone call from Australia at 3 am in the morning]

Finally they sent my a replacement set and these sounded good for 2 months but now the left earphone is coming apart and has a very pronounced buzzing noise which makes it unusable.

The Monster Turbine Pro Copper (MTPC, or just Copper, below) is, without a doubt, the *BEST* *SOUNDING* *HEADPHONE* I have ever used, and I've used a lot... couple of specific points.

Bass response. I love organ music - and organ music sometimes has deep bass that (almost) no other recorded music approaches. For example, on some of the recordings of the Saint-Saëns 3rd Symphony (the "Organ Symphony") there are fundamental tones as low as 16Hz. No home speaker system will reproduce these accurately at reasonable volume without a subwoofer - at least, none that I know of. You might get a "doubling" of the fundamental tone (2nd harmonic) at a fairly high level at 32Hz, and think you're hearing the right note, but you're not. In fact, you can't really "hear" it - you more or less "feel" it. My Sennheiser HD600 headphones can hint fairly strongly at the deepest notes, but you're not going to feel like you're in a concert hall with a massive organ moving enough air to lift you out of your seat. The Coppers, uniquely in my experience, actually got the tone and timbre, the shear majesty of the music, right. I've heard this performed live a few times in a concert hall that had an organ that could perform this piece the way the composer wanted - and the Coppers made me feel like I was back there. I tried many IEM's before I tried these, and none of them came close in the really, really deep bass department. Which makes me all the sadder (see below.)

Impact (transient response, speed, whatever you want to call it.) Wow. No, wait a second... *WOW* Sit in a small club with a rock band. Sit close. Wince when the drummer starts letting loose. *THWACK* and you blink and jump back a bit in your seat.
