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.
