I'm surprised they don't have thicker wires....

At $300, I'm sure they're a bargain... I will try to reserve most of my judgment until somebody competent reviews them.

Hopefully someone who uses the terms "Turbine" or "Pro" in their name will sue them.

Knowing how tight those turbines cement themselves to the RCA inputs, I'm a bit leery about sticking them in my ear.

For some reason when I read this the first time I read it as "reduced anal leakage"...

All kidding aside, I really think that these could be decent. Just based on a gut feeling, they probably are worth 30-50 bucks... too bad they feel the need to price gouge.

Why wait?
You know if it says "Monster" on it, and it sells for over $2.00.....all the "Cliff Clavins" around here, are going to freak out anyway. \:D

That's a bargain at $300, but I think I'd send them out to the Ninja Guy to improve them for another 3-4 hundred.

Shure, Etymotic, and other IEM manufacturers should all band together and sue Monster for patent infringement.
