Hope the Turbines are to your liking when you get them. Out of curiosity though, what specifications are you interested in? I like having specifications as well, but I've never really found them to be very useful in telling me much about how a given headphone or earphone sounds. The only...

I agree that they have a similar sound signature as the IE8's but are just unrefined. Lets put it this way, if you want the ie8's but can't afford the current 300+ price tag, then get these at half the price they perform at about 90% of the ie8's but then again that extra 10 percent can be a ball...

The cable is perhaps the biggest negative point against them. The cables themselves do seem slightly stronger than the cables on the average Japanese earphones but the almost total lack of strain relief does seem a little worrying especially since you can't replace the cables yourself....

Hey fellow dustep fan! I would heartily recommend the Monster Turbines. I got them mainly for how I expected them to sound with dubstep and I was not disappointed. They provide the kind of bass punch and detail that sounds awesome for dubstep and work pretty well with other genres as well. I just did a short write up here: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f103/m...6/#post5556628 As for comfort, IEMs really vary in perceived comfort depending on the individual wearing them....

I got these a few days ago and I'm loving them. I was originally looking for a replacement for my UE 5Pros and after checking out some of the reviews here, I decided to get them. Thanks Shigezo for your review in the earlier thread. Your taste in music and headphones...
Hmm... Interesting. I'd seen pictures of it before but I'd thought that they were just pictures of a concept product. Looks like they're priced at $250! If that's the case, they have a lot to live up to. Especially for a relatively unknown product from a relatively unknown brand.

I was sure they would put some more stuff inside, they should make the package smaller. Haha. Yeah, I agree totally on that point. It comes in a nice, impressive big box, but it's still a mostly empty big box. I think Soundmagic spoilt me with the amount of accessories they include in their nice, impressive small box for their...

I don't really think it's necessary but I'm using mine with my Fiio E5 and I think that they go well together. The E5 is pretty cheap so it's a good starting point if you aren't too sure whether you want to explore more expensive amps later on. The extra bass is nice when you're listening to hip hop and bassy electronic music but I...
