The Gratitudes are not part of the Turbine family. They're not nearly as bass heavy/bloated. The Grats are actually very balanced and engaging.

Thanks for the replies guys. The monster gratitudes seem like a great deal to me, and unless you have any other suggestions for clear even iems at around $50-$70 I will probably buy them. The msrp is over $200! I also quite like the design and as they will be primarily used in public, that does play a role. I recently bought audio technica ath m50's which I love,but are too bulky to use on the bus, so I end up using whatever is at my house which often includes the pos apple ear buds. I have a nexus 4 and gn3 with poweramp to fine tune the output to my taste.

The gratitude is honestly the best you'll get at the 50-70 price range. The only downside really is that theyre a bit heavy since theyre completely metal housing. I've written a review on them and recommended them to tons of people (my entire suite of 4 uses them for portable use right now :D). You can definitely feel secure buying them knowing ur about to get a kickass deal!
