Monster’s Turbine Pro Copper headphones come with two carrying cases (a flip-top magnetic closure case in suede, and spring-clasp pocket pouch), and a very extensive set of eartips (including five sizes of gel-type, double-layer Super Tips; five sizes of foam-type, multi-layers Super Tips; three sizes of conventional rubber eartips, and one pair each of conventional triple-flange eartips and foam eartips). Also included in the package is disc-like rubber eartip carrier with spaces for up to six pairs of eartips (the carrier looks a little the cylinder of a classic six-shot revolver), a shirt clip (to keep the signal cable from flopping around loose), and a ¼-inch phone jack adapter.
As a special perk, owners also receive a special Monster Cable headphone test/demonstration CD, which provides a variety of test tones and an assortment of musical selections spanning a number of genres.
Do make a point of trying Monster’s very special dual-layer, gel-type Super Tips. Once you find the right fit, you may find (as I did) that these eartips offer sonic performance second to none. One small caveat, however, is that the Super Tips are a bit stiffer in consistency than some silicone rubber tips, and for this reason Monster provides an assortment of Super Tips in very finely graduated sizes. Take the time to find the exact right fit for best results.
The Copper Editions are compact and easy to position for a good fit. They are among the most comfortable in-ear headphones I’ve tried, though they are not quite the equal of our all-time comfort champs—the Klipsch Image X10i.
Let me come right out and say it: Monster Cable’s Turbine Pro Copper Edition headphones are one of the three finest “universal fit” in-ear ‘phones I’ve ever heard, and they are personal favorites of mine (I would certainly put them on my short list for “desert island” earphones).
They offer excellent resolution, terrific dynamic expressiveness, and a neutral sound that I’ve come to prize for its unfailing openness and honesty. If you what headphone that can show what’s really in your recordings and that present their findings with a powerful and addictive quality of immediacy, the Copper Editions could be an ideal choice for you.
