    Review by 'maverickronin' on item 'Monster Turbine Pro Gold In-Ear Headphones'

    First off is full disclosure.  I received the Turbine Pro Golds free of charge from Monster to review as part of their “Turbine Challenge” and will get to keep them after the review.  I’ve been known to be critical of Monster’s marketing and legal practices in the past but I do my best to remain...
