Monster Turbine Challenge - Reviewers Wanted! - Page 6  

post #76 of 243

I would be interested in participating in this review.

I have spent most my time assembling a home setup currently consisting of a very neutral dac/amp and a second much more powerful amp for powering my HE-6 headphones. I look for the most truthful of sound I can get, not something to emphasize parts, or fix other parts, of music. I listen to rock and electronic music with a bit of funk and new jazz.

I have just started my foray into IEMs with a new pair of Atrio M5 (MG7). They are far from perfect but have been an experience in using IEMs. I will have my first review up shortly of Comply Foam Tips. 

Should you choose me to be a part of the review I will be focusing on comparing the sound of your IEMs to some of the more known full sized headphones including the SR80 M50 K701 DT880 DT990 D2000 and HE-6. I will also be able to draw upon my experience as a performing musician and occasional sound guy at shows.



[For portable sources I'm limited to a rockboxed iPod, Zune, HiSound Studio, and a Nokia phone. I will likely base my review on my experience running them out of the higher impedance output of my Yulong D100 dac/amp, but will take into account the sound achieved by each of my sources.]

Edit, add-on: I forgot to mention that I have briefly tried out a pair of Turbines among a handful of other IEMs at a local meet and had a rather good impression of them. I'd like to get a chance to compare them to my Atrio.

I am very interested in trying out a pair of turbines.


My current setup is:


Home. Asus Essence stx, matrix m-stage, AKG K701, Alessandro MS1


Portable. Cowon J3 and Etymotic MC5


I largely listen to rock, pop and electronica, All of which is in flac. 


And i have never owned a Monster headphone.

Hi there, i would be entirely honored to review one of these monster IEMs. My current setup is as follow:


Cowon iAudio 9 --> Headstage Arrow Amp (3rd Gen) --> Sennheiser ie8 with ACS custom tips


I have not owned any Monster IEMs in my short audiophile time. The thought crossed my mind, but instead of getting another set of IEMs, i decided to get some AKG k702. The genre of music that I listen to the most is trance, house, hip hop and r&b. I'm slowly making a shift to more mellowed out songs with more separation and better recordings, after getting a good portable setup, my ears are demanding that i explore different genres of music. 


Good luck to everyone else that's posting here, this thread seems to be growing quick!

I am new to the headphone game and am looking to catch up. I would love to listen to as many different headphones as I can. I love rock, mostly 60's and 90's. reggae, hip/hop, a lot of jazz, and a small amount of pop. My gear is listed in my tag below.

post #80 of 243

I would be willing to take part in this.


I listen to a wide range of music including : Alternative,Rock,Jazz,Folk, and others but you get the idea. 


I have never listened to Monster Turbines but would put them through there paces.


I currently am using a Little Dot MK III amplifier with some AKG 702s as my main setup. I am using the Music Streamer II as my DAC. I know tube amps don't pair well with low impedance IEMs that's why I also have Little Dot MK 1+ hybrid amp.


I have owned the following before this setup : 


Audio Technica M50s

Audio Technica AD700s

Sennheiser HD 595s

Sennheiser CX 300s

Sennheiser PX 100s

Grado SR 80


If I am picked I will right an honest review of these phones for better or worse of the phones reputation and thank you for offering us this chance. I listen using only flac lossless audio. I also listen to music about 8 hours a day everyday and so have experience nit picking the sound quality. At any rate good luck to all and thank you again Monster for offering us this!

I would like to try one of the Monster Turbine headphones.


I would use it with the Nuforce HDP.  


I can compare it directly to my Earsonics SM2, shure se110, and sennheiser HD 555.


I am very interested in trying the Monster Turbine Pro Gold specifically.

post #82 of 243

I'm very interested.

I've never used or demod Monster headphones, but I'm excited to hopefully take a part of this opportunity. I would like it to be known I would prefer to review the Pro Coppers, I would love a pair of headphones to critically listen to music with.

I am going to be honest... i am not the most experienced  audiophile with a limited headphone arsenal due to my student budget. but i am hoping to be a better reviewer and i think that this would be an excellent opportunity for me. In my mind Monster has only been a decent company due to the beats, but as the Turbines are non-celeberty promoted and not geared towards teans who prefer crazy bass i would love this opportunity to change my oppinion on Monster. I can never do this on my own as I am currently 15 and too young to legaly get a part time job so the headphones i do have are all highly aclaimed by other head-fiers. I hope that i can also use these headphones to add to my list of growing headphone experiences.  


i currently listen to Rock Pop Alternative Electric Hip Hop and sometimes country


when i work on a review i update it periodically 1-2 times a month to report on how the headphones do after various use times as well as its overall development


i am obtaining my fiio e7 soon and all my test music are 320kbs or flac


i am a daily/bi-daily head-fier and would really like this oppourtunity to physically review the Monster Turbines


i enjoy listening to music because others my age can play sports but being physically disabled i turn to my other strength, my ears so all the time that would have be spent on sports for a teen my age has been spent on my ears


i hope i get these that would be nice

I do indeed own a pair of the regular monster turbines that I use as my main portable headphones and honestly, I prefer them over every other IEM I've tried

My current portable setup is the Sansa fuze (flac files)/iPod touch-->PA2V2-->monster turbine

As for music preferences, I like rock, indie, hip hop, and electronic

I'm interested! 


My current headphones are a pair of JVC HA-RX900s, running off various computers and my iPhone, all unamped. 

I've never owned any kind of high-end IEMs. It would be very neat to see what they sound like, especially in comparison to mid-fi full-size cans.


I listen to classical, rap, some electronic-type music, some chiptune-y stuff, a little metal, and anything weird/funny/catchy enough to attract my attention.

post #88 of 243

I'd like to take part of this review.


I mainly listen to trance, drum and bass, dubstep, progressive trance, electronic music, rock, alternative, classical, hip hop, film scores (i.e. Daft Punk - Tron, Hans Zimmer - Inception, The Dark Knight).


I use my computer's sound card (ASUS Xonar DX) and my Clip+ as source. I use a Fiio E5, E7, E9, and my receiver  for amp.


I've owned all three kinds of Turbines (Gold, Copper, regular) and still have the Copper and Gold.

post #89 of 243

I'd love to try-out and review one of the Turbine IEMs from Monster.  


I primarily listen to electronic dance music (Trance, Progressive, House, Drum n Bass) but also have a healthy library of metal (Killswitch Engage, Disturbed, Korn, Trivium) and Hip Hop (Immortal Technique, Tech N9ne, NaS, Jay-Z, Eminem).


My current set up is running FLAC files via foobar2000 through an Ibasso D4 DAC and a Matrix M-Stage amplifier.  


I have never owned or really even listened to a Monster Turbine product, so I'd love this opportunity to test the waters and let the rest of the community know what I think.



post #90 of 243

I never had any of these products before. I listen to a lot of rock, hip hop, pop, and anything that I like really. I own a pair of RE-Zeros. They sound great but they lack bass. If there's any chance of me getting a pair I'd use them with my iPod Classic or Clip+....
