Our take on the Monster® Turbine™ Pro Gold

by Kristen Schaub
Monster Cable

Solid metal earbud design for accurate sound

Don't just listen to your music — really experience it with Monster's Turbine Pro Gold in-ear headphones. These earbuds feature high-quality, lightweight drivers that make every note sound rich and distinct, from strong bass to clear midrange and highs. Instruments will come alive, while vocals will sound nuanced and natural. The all-metal housings aren't just for good looks, either — they help eliminate unwanted resonances for clean, pure sound.

High-quality Monster Cable ensures you hear every note


The Turbine Pro uses some of Monster's best cable technologies, too. Ultra-fine conductors and a patented Magnetic FluxTube™ design faithfully deliver even the most subtle details in your music. The eartips create a seal in your ear to naturally block out external noises — five different sizes are included to help you find the most comfortable fit. You get two attractive cases to protect your headphones from damage and keep them looking brand new.

Monster® Turbine™ Pro Gold

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought these because my wife said the ear buds that came with her i pod hurt
her ears and kept falling out. I knew these would be a great replacement because
i own other products from monster but even I was shocked how superb they sound.
You could spend
thousands & thousands of dollars on high end audio equipment like me and these
are better than most home systems, great if you live in small quarters and
comfortable to wear
for long hours. These are a bargain price for such a high quality sound that I
wonder just how much better the copper ones are. I might have to get me some to
find out because the
wife isn't giving these up. Buy these, you wont be sorry and don't leave them if
you want to keep em.

Just amazing

Written By ValL, Charlottesville on Sunday, September 26, 2010
I just could not believe my ears... While I was berating myself for having spent so much for
headphones, after five minutes listening to these I was completely convinced that it was one
of the best investments I have ever made. I love music and I simply had never heard such
clarity, life, depth and musicality in any other headphone (and very, very few loudspeakers of
any size and price).

These earphone are super cool. you can hear the sound much more clearly than other
earphones. Bass is just perfect not too wich i believ it also help you hear the trebble more
clear. Ilike the right angle connector wich helps the cable not bend too much. Comes in nice
box too and earbuds. Glad I purchased this product. Lil bit pricy, but save up some money
and get yourself a pair of these.
