MPTC vs MPTC w/ control talk

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I called onecall.com today asking for the lowest possible pricing on the monster pro turbine coppers and the sales representative gave me two choices, the standard pro turbine coppers for $220 vs $290 for the MPTC's with controltalk, IMO, this is quite a drastic price difference for a remote and mic, what'd u guys think? would you for the standard ones or the ones equipped with the controltalk feature

$220 is the sweet spot when it comes to price for the coppers. You've got Monster's warranty when you buy new MTPCus from onecall, so it just comes down to: Are you really going to be listening mostly to music on an iphone (or the like) and use the control talk feature quite a bit? Or, do you mostly keep your iphone for phone/data and a dedicated dap for music?

also, does anybody get tired of the MSRP versus actual street price cr@p? not everybody is going to call or send a email asking for the lower and actual price, and some people might actually buy them for the price displayed on the website. guess it's all in the hands of "the man" I mean, it's frustrating to have to call/email/txt or whatever because you aren't sure it's the lowest possible price

and also, I honestly believe they would make more money if they just displayed the actual price, a lot of people would be instantly scared off if they saw the MSRP and that is exactly what they see

 

nuff ranting

That's my role here. I'm on a mission from God.

There's a lot that goes into it. But, yes, from the side of the consumer, it's annoying to pay more than a product can go for.

Cats believe that God is a cat. They believe this is natural and self-evident. Ask a cat, they will tell you this.
