About this item

Life is Too Short to Listen to Bad Headphones:
These days, we spend a lot of time listening to music with headphones. Every minute you spend enjoying your music should be the best it can be, but ordinary headphones can't deliver the rich dynamics, full range, and emotional impact of your favorite music.

Sound So Incredible, We Had to Call Them In-Ear Speakers:
Monster Turbines truly deliver the big sound, power, and clarity that you'd expect from full size high-end speakers. That's why we had to call them speakers, not headphones.

Bass So Deep, it Sounds Like There's a Subwoofer:
Unlike other headphones that can't reproduce deep bass, Monster Turbines accurately reproduce even the lowest bass notes without distortion. You'll hear thunderous low-end for incredible sound with every kind of music, from the thumping bass beats of hip hop tracks to the deepest pipe organ notes in classical compositions.

Less Noise, More Music:
We live in a noisy world that can interfere with your listening. Monster Turbines include multiple sound isolating eartips to give you a perfect fit thatseals out unwanted noise for a pure listening experience.

A Personal Message From the Head Monster:
Hi music lovers, this is Noel Lee, The Head Monster. Let me take a few minutes to talk about how Turbines came to be, our Monster design philosophy, and the unique approach we took to engineer the sound that you will hear with Turbines.

We're Passionate About Audio:
I founded Monster Cable because I was passionate about music and getting the best sound possible. At Monster, we're all critical audiophiles and music lovers, and we want you to experience every nuance of your favorite music whether it's hip hop, jazz, vocals, classical, or rock. We want you to feel the full impact of seeing a live concert.

Our Monsterous Design Approach:
Our design approach to headphones is that they must reproduce everything that full size speakers can. Today, people aren't listening to speakers because we'reall listening to headphones with our portable media players. We wanted to deliver the same sound that recording engineers, performers, and producers hear in the studio on their big wide-range monitor speakers, with a compact in-ear headphone design.

The Head Monster's Audio Specifications:
These days, it seems like everybody publishes a bunch of specifications for their headphones, numbers that are for practical purposes, meaningless. For instance, most headphones have a frequency response rated at 20-20,000Hz. But all headphones sound different, so what good is that spec? Because we're passionate about audio here at Monster, I'd like to share what my specs are for great sound, for things like frequency response and dynamic range, and what we've achieved with Monster Turbine In-Ear Speakers.

Overall:
We wanted Turbines to be able to reproduce EVERY detail of the music. Firstly, we engineered Turbines to present a balanced, smooth frequency responsewithout the peaks and valleys typical of other headphones, where some things areoveremphasized to the point of fatigue.

Low Frequency Response:
The impact of low-end bass needs to be like a great subwoofer. Many headphones can't handle the low frequencies of an organ pedal note or the deep bass you hear in today's hip hop music. We engineered Turbines to deliver extended low frequency sound at real life volumes, without any distortion. You'll hear and feel the impact of a foot pedal of hitting the bass drum head.

Midrange Frequency Response:
This is where vocals and most instrument fundamentals are reproduced. Vocalists need to sound like they're in the room with you: clear, clean, unobstructed, and uncolored, real, and live. The body ofacoustic instruments must sound natural, as they do in real life. Turbines are precisely tuned to reproduce the natural timber of every performer's instrument and voice.

High Frequency Response:
Everything must be as clear as a bell: all the details of delicate percussive sounds, such as the crisp ring of a triangle, to a drumstick caressing a cymbal. You have to be able to hear the "air" in the room.Those of you who are real audiophiles will notice Turbines deliver more sense ofspace, air, and openness than any other headphones in the world.

Full Range Dynamics and Efficiency:
The Monster Turbines sound incredible, with any MP3 player. Most MP3 players don't have the power to drive today's in-ear headphones to lifelike levels. The efficiency of the Turbine driver lets you experience the full dynamic range from the delicate sounds of the softest violin to the boom of the loudest kettle drum. The "attack" & dynamics of Turbines is first rate. You'll hear every detail even at low volumes, with full dynamic peaks without compression or distortion.

Transient Response:
Lastly there's what we call the bite of the music, what gives it the "you are there" feeling. The incredible speed of the Turbine driverlets it respond with perfect accuracy when the music tells it to, so you'll hear everything that's there, & nothing that isn't.

Specifications? Monster Turbines are ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC. So music lovers, sit back & relax, and enjoy the sound that comes from the advanced engineering, the care, & the passion that we put into Turbines. When you listen to your favorite music with Turbines, I'll bet it will sound as though you were listening to it for the first time again.

Good listening, and may you always hear the music. Remember, life's too short tolisten to bad headphones!
