That's not a good thing. Agreed. But whatever, I won't be touching a Monster product.

I'm going to wait until people hear them and report back before passing judgment on them. Again, the smaller driver allows Monster to put them in the front of the earphone casing (which is also the reason behind the earphones' distinctive looks). Anyone heard of the Hippo Shroom/EB? They use a similar design. A small dynamic driver may yield faster transients, so I don't think it's all bad. Besides, these seem targeted more towards the same audience as the Turbine Pro series.

 

Also, LaptopMag reported the Noel Lee finally admitted that half a thousand dollars for the Tributes was highway robbery.

You know looking at that link....your technically putting the driver in your ear. This should be interesting, the only downside to this is that cord. I usually reserve judgement as all smart folks do tongue.gif But...

Whoa, link me (or quote that, yo) if you're not pulling my leg.

 


I don't think he said it exactly like that, it was more like, nobody was biting for the MD's because they were too expensive, otherwords, sales weren't to great

Well, no Noel Lee didn't say it was highway robbery himself (hence the lack of quotation marks), but I enjoy a little hyperbole once in a while.

Guess I didn't make it too clear, though.

LOL I was actually more interested in that enigmatic new "super tips" than the new MD model itself, Seems like the tip might surpass the current Supertips, Have the Gel Supertips just a slight too big and they stay rapturing your ear outwards dealing you an audio world of pain~!
