Please help! Monster Trubine vs other IEMs ~$100 in terms of bass

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

I'm in desperate need of new IEM's and would like something with great bass. I've read that the Monster Turbine's bass packs a decent punch but is there anything better out there for around $100? I listen to anything from industrial metal and trance to hip hop.

 

Thank you!!!

Monster Turbines are pretty good and Shure Se215 seems to be getting a lot of attention on Head-Fi and was recommended by Jude for being bassy and fun.

The bass on the 215 isn't nearly as good as the Turbine.  The mids are better however.  If you listen to hip hop/rap...the Turbines are as good as it gets around 100 bucks I think.  There are some other "less bass heavy" options like the Brianwavz M3 that are more well rounded than both of them.

if you want lots of bass but absolute crap everywhere else, get the turbine.

Future Sonics Atrio MG5/7 used or the new X model.

I dont listen to hip hop exclusively.. if you do maybe the turbines are better than i think. But if you listen to any other genre, no i am no absolutely wrong.

Having owned the MT and the SE215 I would also say the SE215 while have less bass impact is the better IEM in midrange and soundstage and about equal in treble.

Out of the two IEM's I much prefer the SE215

Whatever you do, don't buy Beats. They are pure marketing and offer no value whatsoever. Bloated bass and lacklustre mids. Don't fall into the hype.

 

Check out the Fischer Audio Eterna V1 for amazing bass and a great musical experience.

Now that's a bit harsh on Beats. Even though they DO spend a lot of money on marketing, Refurbished Turbines are one of the best deals out there. At that price range, there aren't many better alternatives.

I think you're confusing the Beats line of headphones with the Monster brand. The Turbines are great and energetic IEMs and, apart from their looks, I don't have anything particularly harsh to say about them. tongue_smile.gif
