Monster Turbine, Beats Tours or Sennheiser IE60?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

I'm looking for new in ear headphones, but I can't decide which one is the best for the music I like. So i hope you could give me some advice. I mainly listen to Rock music, but I also listen much to Pop/Dance/House/DnB. I know music is mainly personal experience, but I just don't know which specs are important for headphones with the music I like. (like much bass or less bass, etc.)

 

I know the Turbines and the Tours are pretty the same, but if you could specify what the main difference is in sound. 

 

I hope you can help me out because no where near they got demo models of these headphones (unfortunately)

 

Ps. English isn't my native language (but i'm sure you already noticed that)

I love the B&W C5... Great bass, but not too heavy, well balanced in my opinion. Perfect for Electronic **** and rock also.

 

they are priced around 200$ i think...

 

I also had some Monster Turbine Pro Copper and they didn't have a chance against the B&W C5...

 

Take a look at them. In my opinion they are pretty good for the price. ;)

There is a pretty big difference in how the Tours and the Turbines sound. They both have pretty great bass. The midrange of the Turbine is much better. The Tour has a somewhat exaggerated upper midrange and treble that makes it sound a bit thin compared to the Turbine which has a much fuller sound. About the only thing better on the Tour is the cable. I very much prefer the Turbine. Note: I highly recommend against purchasing either from an unauthorized source as they are counterfeited quite often and the sound of the counterfeits is putrid.

The Turbine are better sounding with more detailed mids, highs and bass goes deeper and reverb, Tour maybe sound amazing on first listening session but they are not as detailed as Turbine and enjoyable. The other IEMs like JVC FX3X, Sony XB90EX, RE0+E5 and Harmen Kardon AE are recommended for these genres music.
