I won these in a contest based upon audiophile grade musical production quality, The 2010 Audiophillie Music Awards For Excellence In Recorded Sound. I did not go to school for audio engineering, nor do I do music production for a living. Since I was unemployed at the time I considered selling My copper Turbines, but after trying them, I immediatly changed my mind and had to keep them... because they sound PERFECT! Since then I have actually been using them as my secret weapon in the studio, for production and mastering of my instrumental tracks. These things have made production so simple that I no longer toil for hours in post production work such as compressions and equalizations. I literally use none of that now and basicly use the mixer levels on my synth (mastering function turned off there as well) and also the mixing levels on my DAW to get every sound right where I want it. Before I had the Monster Pro Coppers, I would end up juggling several other of the big brand headphones, as well as my studio setup to determine how clean and balanced my sound was. Now that I have the Monster Pro Coppers, I can rest easy knowing that what my ears hear is the actual source as clean and balanced as it possibly could be, and I am also assured that my instrumental compositions will sound amazing no matter what system the listener uses to bask in my audio creations. I no longer ask myself "Well, this sounds amazing on my system, but will it sound this good to people listening to it on their own systems?"

The advantage of not having to spend so much time post production equals A LOT more time set aside for practice, and compositional arrangement.

Long story short, to all the people who think Monster Cable brand is a gimmick? Take it from me. I've loved music since I was in diapers. I play several instruments, and produce and record my own instrumental tracks. I would never use any other brand cable for any reason when audio quality is on the line. Even my midi cables- Monster. Think about it. When you are in studio, and you're working with various electronics in the order of the dozens, you need every bit of slack you can get to accurately record every subtle nuance. Monster Cable is what gives me this edge, and the Pro Copper Turbines complete the signal path. No doubt about it!!!

I purchased the original Monster Turbines and thought to try this model to see if there was any difference. Regardless of its features, the resulting audio quality wasn't an improvement.

Monster takes a lot of pride in the construction so I'll give that to them. However the same issues that plagued the original Turbines exist in this version, the tips. The reason why bass response can vary so much with these is because the orifice is too small, it easily gets pinched while they're in your ears. Those with average to smaller ear canals will not be happy with these earphones despite changing the tip sizes. Even if you manage to find a good position in your ear, you open your mouth, turn your head or simply walk down the street and the sound quality will vary greatly. I had to resort to buying spare tips from Sony and UE just to correct this problem.

At this price range I had to compare it to others such as the Etymotics ER4-P which is a much more musically accurate sounding product, Shure and UE both have products that sound, IMO a lot better without the fuss of having to find a good position in your ear. You can simply insert them and they'll seal up nicely and the driver points correctly into your ear for the best sound. Best of all the others don't fall out of position in your ear and it'll sound great even if you're moving your jaw, moving your head from side to side, up and down and walking around.

To Monster, you have a really good product that has an easily correctable flaw. I know you're proud of the special eartips but you might want to consider offering a different, larger-orifice tip package. Ear canals and shapes are as diverse as a person's fingerprint, there's no real 1 size fits all solution. Bass response is the result of proper sealing, clarity is mostly determined by the vector (exact direction) the driver is pointing in the ear, consistency of audio quality from earphones has to do with how resistant the earphones are from moving around while the person moves their head naturally.

Have someone put it on while listening to a full range of music (heavy lows, full mids, good highs). Have them turn their head 90 degrees to the left and right, have them open their jaws and close them. You'll immediately notice the audio quality changes way too much unless you're in a neutral position.

    Comments about Monster� Turbine� Pro Audiophile In-Ear Speakers� with ControlTalk�, Copper:

    I own a pair of Grado SR80i headphones that I have used at home for the past few years. They are incredible sounding, and of very high quality. So, I would not buy IEMs without a quality of sound that was almost as good as my Grados. I took a gamble on the Pro Coppers, and WOW! They are actually much, much better than my Grados, and I didn't think that was going to be possible. Well done, Monster.

    Comments about Monster� Turbine� Pro Audiophile In-Ear Speakers� with ControlTalk�, Copper:

    After finding the best supertip for me, the sound was very good BUT only worked with my ipod and iPhone. When I connected it to an extension cord from the audio system in my room, the sound volume and quality was diminished and sounded quite horrible. But if I connected it directly into the amplifier, the sound was spot on. But then who is going to stand a couple of feet from their sound system? So I am not so satisfied with this product because of this limitation. I love Monster products but not so much with this one.

    These headphones are amazing, the best I've heard. My previous headphones weren't nearly as good, and they were a huge upgrade to what I had prior. The sound on these turbines is extremely clear. You can hear every aspect of your music and enjoy all of it with the comfort of a wide array of eartips.

        Picked these up after the Golds. I have to say, there is no other headphone that can top these.
        Since I'm rarely at home to listen my audio system, I needed something with great sound, compact, cool looking, durable and comfortable so I can listen music while I'm at work and school. I've spent years collecting many different headphones, I wish I had picked these up a lot sooner. Listening to music 8+ hours a day, I think these were a solid choice.
