Monster Turbine Appreciation Thread - Page 62

post #916 of 1116

The support stalk on my right ear bud is already loose. I have used my Turbine's 5 times since I got them last week. Wow. Every listening session was done sitting in front of my computer working in Photoshop so it certainly was not misuse.

 

I emailed Monster as well and they told me if I wanted to exchange mine for a pair of the new ones in February that I could. They didn't mention a price though but with a 3 years warranty I suspect I will be exchanging frequently.

Mine should be arriving in 3-4 days, can't wait. Gotta love getting these for $45.

Also got in on the Amazon.com deal.  Pretty good, especially for the money.  My one comment is that none of the included tips worked well for me and I really wasn't pleased until I tried some foamies for them.  Now I would say I like them more than my Super.fi 5 Pros but less than my Triple Fis.

Whats your source?  You will only hear what your source will provide if you have exceeded its capability.

It's an Ipod Touch 2G. I plan on upgrading to the J3 soon, will that make any significant difference?

Give it time your ears need to adjust to the differences. Usually I am dissapointed with headphones when I first get them then after a few hours or days I really start to love them.

Hmm... I'll hope that mine start to fall apart in the next few months! You say they didn't mention "a price" -- you mean a price for the new version if buying brand new or a price to exchange them?

A price for exchanging them for the new version. I doubt they would offer free "upgrades" to the new version, especially since we bought them on sale. 

 

 

Can anyone check to see if the little rubber stalk supports are slightly loose on their Turbine's? It's the piece right where the cables go into the ear buds.

My right support stock also broke in the first month of use, but I am too lazy to return it, especially after burning it in. I have a pair of MTPCs.

you can see a tiny bit of the attachment point, but it shouldn't be too loose

Was wondering if I should go for the Turbine Pro instead of the Turbine if I can get one for around $140.  Would the improvement be worth it?

post #928 of 1116

Does anyone have the exact dimensions of the packaging (box) that it comes in (the normal Monster Turbines)? I'd really appreciate it and would greatly help, thanks!

Great thanks! I asked a seller the dimensions of his box of Monster Turbines and they were much shorter than the measurements of yours buffalowings, so they must be fake. Thanks for taking the time to measure them for me!
