Monster Turbine Pro
Monster Cable today upgraded its non-Beats in-ear headphones with the addition of the Turbine Pro. The new pair purportedly has "reference" level audio, although specifications aren't given, and have a new custom-designed ear tip design that should provide better insulation from the outside world than Monster's previous design. A set of the older ear tips remains in the box.
The buds come in copper- or rose gold-colored versions. A standard version of the Turbine Pro set meant for listening only ships for $300, but a $330 edition comes with an in-line mic and remote combo to support phone calls on iPhones and control for these as well as newer iPods.
