Monster Turbine Appreciation Thread - Page 12

Maybe the wires are not shielded as well as other wires?
post #167 of 1116
I don't know if its the wires, because the monster wires don't seem to conduct anything.. what I mean by that it it feels soo much like rubber that I can't imagine it picking static electricity like that. I haven't noticed it on mine but maybe I will next winter.

Just got my pair today. Very nice packaging and very clear details. Definitely a lot of bass. More bass than my Denon C551K. I'm going to burn these Turbines in more to see if there's any improvement.

Well worth the money, IMO.

Nope, I don't think I have the same problem. Then again, I'm not wearing wool clothing since we've been having great weather here in San Francisco, CA.

do you wear a lot of metal? lightning rods? electric generators? anything like that? if so, i think i can see the reason you get zaps.

i get shocks with every iem i use, but not with full size phones. but if you don't get zapped by other iems, then it sounds like the turbine is doing something to you that ain't good.

lol i didnt say i got zapped, it make distortion sounds like poping, anyway amazon is sending me a new replacement.. so ill see if they both make that same thing.

Mine do this too, but only when I stand up rather briskly (and only when my source is stationary, ie: if I stand up briskly WITH my iPod, there is no crackling, but if my iPod is lying on my desk, it will crackle for a tenth of a second. I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't said something though. By the way, for anyone considering these headphones, get them! They are fun to listen to and it will be hard to beat this sound quality for less than $100. The only complaint I have, aside from the tiny, momentary crackling if you stand up VERY suddenly, are the ear tips. I guess I have tiny ear holes, because even the smallest tips Monster included are a little too big. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Has anyone purchased the Turbines on Ebay from "hi-end-wholesale"? They seem to have the cheapest price ($101 w/free shipping), but I'm a little leary with the look of their site.

MacMall is probably a safer choice. Has anyone had a bad experiency buying them from MacMall? The CSR indicated that they were definitely in stock, even though on the web site it shows availability as "Generally in stock". I need them by next Weds at the latest, but I don't really want to pay for expedited shipping.....

One other thing: I know the other day that you could get another 5% or so off at MacMall by searching via "Live.com". Now I don't see MacMall come up at all when I search on the Turbines. Any idea if I'm doing something wrong?

I got mine from "hi-end-wholesale" and they're legit, so you have nothing to worry about. He shipped them the day after I paid, and they got here in 1 day, but that's because we're both in NY.

I ordered a set from MacMall last Friday, scheduled to arrive Wednesday. No issues, I have done lots of business with them over the years. Very safe, and they take PayPal also.
