The Monster.... Turbine... thinggy

post #1 of 386
Thread Starter 
Just got my package and I wanted to put up some pics of the packaging etc.. Looks pretty nice and the mini triple flanges are a real surprise, I Wish more companies (Cough cough.. ety) would make them. Enjoy, I'll post impressions later in the week.

I've been listening to these for about 30 min now.. and I have to say, anyone who picks this up will be pleasantly surprised. I'm waiting for the Senn Ie8's to compare them because I Think it would be an odd comparison with the others I have on hand.

Was this one of the review packages or did you buy them? The design is pretty.

No no info regarding shipping back, I figure they'll contact us in about a month and a half if they want it back. To be honest I might just buy them.. But we'll see after I hear the senns

I applied to review them, but was not one of the first 100 -- oh well!

But I have my new NE-7M to get to know!

Hmm.. I like the tag line: 'Life's too short to listen to bad headphones'

The design reminds me of the Atrio M5 with the blue and red rings and the shiny black plastic.

Oh so I've had these things in my ears for a solid 3 hours. I think that I really really like them. Theyre fast I mean very fast (but I'll do some further comparisons to the etys) They also have a very VERY deep bass. I thought I Could feel the bass before with my se530's but these go quite a ways deeper. I'm listening to Steely Dan at the moment and its going quite well. Unfortunately the bass can over power the mids. Maybe I just need to let it burn in a bit more. I'll give it a week. But yeah so far thumbs up for em.

I received my review sample yesterday. I have to say that my initial impressions are good. Like pdupiano, I intended to try them for just a few minutes last night after work, and couldn't put them down for 90 minutes. Same thing this afternoon, 5 minutes turned into two hours. I was hearing details in my music that I have missed, or were buried with my other IEMs (530, TF10, etc.). Also good with all sorts of music and recording quality.

Very impressed so far, more detailed review in the next few days.
