Monster Intros Flashy $300 Turbine Pro In-Ear Headphones
In typical Monster fashion, the new Turbine Pro headphones are extremely flashy, and if you believe the press release, they're probably the best in-ear headphones money can buy. Described as "professional" earbuds, Monster has engineered these "to deliver the kind of reference-quality sound necessary to meet the exacting demands of today’s music professionals and discriminating audiophile listeners." The standout feature in the new 'buds is the 'SuperTip' eartips, which offer up noise isolation and prevent sound leakage. Speaking of tips, a trio of sizes ship with 'em, so pretty much any ear canal should be taken care of.
The new Monster Turbine Pro headphones will be available in November 2009 in a pair of colors: gold with black chrome, and copper with bright chrome. Unlike most headphones, Monster is standing behind these in a big way. They'll come with a one-time Lifetime Replacement Guarantee – even if users break the headphones themselves. Of course, we'd expect nothing less given the monstrous $299.95 price tag, which actually soars to $329.95 if you get the bundle that includes Monster's ControlTalk headphone cable to use with Apple's iPhone, iPod and most other multimedia-friendly smartphones.
