Anything that markets themselves as "lifestyle" should not be that expensive.
Would you rather have Enthusiast headphones or Lifestyle headphones at $400?

The answer is enthusiast. For everyone. This is not opinion.

"The Tumi x Monster headphones will be available at Tumi stores worldwide and tumi.com for $395."

LOL.
You are obviously new to the audiophile world, $395 is almost pocket change if it sounds good.

Monster Turbines are pretty well received, I don't know why the hate against Monsters, especially when I have not seen any reviews of the earphones.

Monster has a reputation for being overpriced for what you get, so I am a tad leery of these, as they remind me of the beats line of products which are widely accepted as garbage. However I am looking for a replacement for my bose, so I am intrigued, is there any chance of a review here on TPU perhaps.

Replacement for my Bose, eh? Bose has a reputation for selling nothing but junk, at least Monster has a redeeming lineup (Turbines) :/

People seriously need to look deeper before bashing, I feel a lot of butthurt in TPU these few days (Apple sucks, Seagate sucks, Monster sucks, etc.)

They were a gift from my grandfather, whom worked for bose . . . and yeah their not the greatest, but their not garbage either!

I simply stated a fact and that is that Monster sell expensive stuff that isn't always worth the price, not that everything they make is crap! Hypersensitive much ?:shadedshu

I also said that I would be interested in seeing how these perform.






And for the record apples hardware does suck, below meadiocer quality for batshit prices.:shadedshu

Yes I am getting really sensitive to random unwarranted complaints over TPU, sorry about that :eek:

Bose suffers the same problem with Monster, Apple et al: they are overpriced for what they provide. It doesn't mean they sell shit stuff, their products are at least competent if priced correctly (50%?).

Don't expect much from these, at $395 there are a lot of good sound isolating/ANC cans out there which are really really good.
