Monster Turbine Challenge - Reviewers Wanted! - Page 10  

post #136 of 243

I would be interested in this as well.


I've owned over 20 full-size headphones in the past year and a half, including quite a few professional monitoring headphones, because I love hearing music as it was recorded.  I never liked ear buds that came with portable players, and that has caused me to hesitate to try other in-ear models.


My main listening rig is a PC with optical out connected to a custom built Texas Instruments amp, though I also have a laptop that I use frequently with a Firestone Fireye II.  My portable listening comes via a Creative Zen, sometimes connected to a Firestone Battery Cute.

Definately interested. In the past I´ve owned the Sennheiser IE 8 (first my cat bit the cord broken, then I forgot them in the washing machine) and Shure 530 IEMs (couldn´t stand the very deep insertion). Right now I´m looking for a IEM, so I´ve been reading all the current reviews etc. I´ve never tried any Monster product, so it would be a new and exciting venture. I listen to everything from classical to hip hop, but for portable use I mostly listen at the gym so I gravitate towards energetic and bass heavy music. What I loved in the Sennheiser IE 8 was the bass and soundtage for hip hop, and Monster turbines, on paper, sound exactly like what I´m looking for. If I lived in the states, I´d probably already have tried one of their models thanks to the aggressive pricing there. But here in the EU they are very expensive.


My main rig is an Audio-gd REF-7 Dac fed via an Audio-gd Digital Interface, Stax SRM-600 and SR-507 earspeakers. Before arriving at Stax, I owned the Sennheiser HD 800, Audeze LCD-2, Beyer 880 edition 2005 and Sennheiser HD 650. After a long journey I´m completely satisfied with my main rig, so my headphone interest these days strongly gravitates towards the portable realm.


If selected, I´d be writing a review.


Last but not least, I forgot to check if this competition is USA/Canada only... It probably is (so it rules me out). Oh well, good luck to everyone beerchug.gif

I am interested

I never use a Turbine earphone but I am using monster cables and power conditioners. My main rig is Audio-gd digital interface> Audio-gd NFB10> Akg K702 Balanced. Portable rig is Creatie X-FI > Fio E5> Phonak PFE

I am also interested.


I listen to almost all kinds of genre.


I am a good reader, I always read reviews online. I would love to create my own for the community. I have my iPod Touch 4G as my DAP.


For me, a good audiophile IEM can be seen without the use of an AMP.


I hope I can get one. I haven't tried any of the monster products. I would like to give my opinions regarding them.


Thank you :)

interested in this, count me in!

let's see if these can survive a student-goes-to-school live.

post #146 of 243

I'm interested!


I use sony sources mainly: the a818, a829 and a846. I can plug them through a diy amp/dac combo but I doubt I would, my daps are powerful enough for all my eaprhones.


I've never used any of the turbine lineup, although have used a lot of earphones in the last 7 years. I listen to a lot of everything but a lot of electronic/drum&bass/dubstep etc. The only things I don't listen to are metal and bassline, although I do listen to metal occasionally!!

post #147 of 243

I'm interested in this.


I've owned and currently use the original Monster Turbine In-Ear Speaker! I also have the Dr. Dre Beats Solos and Dre Beat Tours In-ears.


I prefer the truest sound to the original possible. Sometimes, I also prefer an elevation in bass response as long as it's not overpowering.


Currently I own a Sansa Clip+, Sansa Fuze as my portables.  An ASUS 1201N with an asus usb soundcard as my home rig.

I have a Little Dot MK3 amp and use the Dre Solos and the Shure SRH840s.

I would like to participate in this with the Monster. I am an audiophile for 35 years have the proper gear to audition these and write a detailed review here.

post #149 of 243

Hi I am interested...I have heard them awhile back and like to participate in making a review on them.

post #150 of 243

I'd be intrested in this trial, I curruntly own  the Shure SE420 iem's, but have read great reviews on the monster series IEM.  I listen to all forms of music, but tend to lean more towards jazz and bands such as Dave Matthews Band.
