Monster Cable Diesel In-Ear Headphone?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 

Anyone tried this? Any impressions?

And somehow there are 2 listings on Amazon, with same original price $179.95.


First one is down to $58.94.

While this one is down only to $149.

The only difference I can spot is that the heavily discounted one has an Apple control talk and the other one a universal control talk. I have no idea why that would justify such a price difference though. Moreover, Apple-specific products usually tend to be more expensive? Confusing.. :-)

 

Can't comment on the IEMs themselves though, sorry!

I want to say, but can't guarantee, that the first one is fake looking at the price.  I didn't even know Monster made Diesel In-Ears :p

They do make that IEM, it has a massive 20mm driver in it.

That price is from Amazon versus a 3rd party seller so I believe it's legit. Good price if nothing else. Tempted but won't bite since it probably won't be available to Canadians plus I have a pair of FXZ100 coming in.

I can't find any specs on these... where do you see 20mm drivers listed? That's massive.

On Monsters website I think, if not it may have been the Futureshop website. Saw these in store today btw for $169 so that is a very good price if,your wanting to take the plunge. I imagine these will have plenty of bass at the least and if like some of the other Monster headphones I have heard lately will probably sound quite nice especially at that price point.

Is this endorsed by DIESEL the fashion brand, or Diesel as in the DIESEL himself, Shaquille?

But seriously, the fashion brand.

I decided to pick up a pair from a store with an easy return policy. So far they sound pretty good with very good imaging. The bass sounds a bit flabby though, so I am burning them in for the night to see if it improved. They seem to be mid/treble centric for the most part. The cable is quite interesting (triangular) and the phone mic/control is fancy looking. I am not fond of their L jack as it appears to focus on cool design at the cost of being to rigid and prone to being broken.

 

Not sure if I will keep them but will give a mini review before I take them back if I decide to return them.

IMO Best monster IEM are only the turbines, the MDTs, and the Yao Solar.(SERIOUSLY, they arent that bad!)
