Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.

Music Lover
Acoustic Principle
The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types: Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source. Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room. Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

General Features

Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.

The Way it should be

June 26, 2010

First let me say that i have never been a huge fan of in-ear headphones. In my experience these types of headphones are extremely uncomfortable and when playing over an extended period of time the sound quality decreases. Maybe its just me but I believe that the way a product is presented will say a lot about the company and sometimes about the product its self. Well Monster did an amazing job in the packing, sleek black box, a cool little carrying case, some extra ear pieces for a universal fit for any ear. Everything neatly packaged and a pamphlet dedicated to some of the reviews on these headphones. So it was time to test them and well all of those worries and doubts were not only thrown out the window but pretty much erased from any horrible memory of prior in-ear headphones (for anyone who still uses their factory Ipod headphones you know exactly what I am talking about). The biggest difference that is most noticeable is the BASS. With regular or even semi expensive headphones the volume increases but nothing else really changes. These Turbine headphones add a great amount of bass and most important of all clarity. As the sound increases there is no distortion and the clarity is amazing. I was able to test these headphones on 3 different devices, Ipod Touch, Lg Envy Touch, and my Mac Book Pro. The sound was amazing on all 3 devices, I did run into some problems but that had nothing to do with the headphones and more to do with the way I had my songs formatted on my Envy. Another amazing feature was the noise cancellation. These types of headphones are not known for having good, let alone great noise cancellation features. When the ear pieces were in my ears not only could I not hear my brothers talking to me less than 2 feet away from me but they could not ear anything coming from my headphones. Pretty much completely sealed that would have been enough for me to make me satisfied. The frequency range is amazing, you really do ear the highs, mids and lows. The lows are evident in any song with bass but for me it was more about the midrange frequencies, the vocals and acoustics. Most of my music is very acoustic and vocal. When I played one of my favorite artist's song I felt like i was listening to him at a small coffee shop venue, it was amazing. The sound wasn't muddy which for me is a constant problem with low to mid range headphones. The response rate of the frequencies and the accuracy is just great. The sound is rich and clean two things that for any music lover is a must. The quality of these headphones is amazing and its obvious that Monster lived up to their name with these Turbines. The earbuds are extremely comfortable, even after 4 hours of straight use my ears felt great. If you are looking for more Bass, crisp and smooth trebles and clean midrange then I highly recommend these headphones, I promise that you will not be disappointed. On top of a great quality brand is an amazing lifetime warranty against all defects. If you break them (good luck) or if your dog chews the cable Monster will replace them for free one time. If you are a serious music listener these are a must have!
