Monster Turbines Broken

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just Turbines today and they've been pissing me off. The right earbud sounds much lower than the left. Is there some nooby mistake I'm doing or should I just request an RMA Monday.

monster iems are known for their poor cabling (no strain relief) but some higher end models do.. I would be careful of them if u get them back from rma and, it also could be why it sounds weaker.

I got my new Turbines... old ones where broken. The headphones are great for the price but I was expecting more bass. Maybe it's just me but it never seems like there's enough bass in everything.

oh rly...

the Turbines are bass emphasised......

Also I'll direct you to my rant: rant

Also seal is important for bass reproduction, so you must try all the eartips and use the ones that seal the best. if the eartips are too small, bass reproduction (and isolation) will suffer. the Monster supergel eartips are very good quality ones.
