    Do you have any specs on the driver size and material?

    Is there a noticeable difference in the tuning nozzles?
    A shopper on Mar 15, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: For my iPhone 8 using a lightning adapter, the silver (bass heavy) nozzle generates so much bass, even on a flat EQ with no compression, that it contaminates the midrange and harms spatial imaging. Black is the way to go unless you've got an underpowered pre-amp (i.e. an old iPod). The MP30's do require some break-in thoguh and will become less harsh and develop even more bass with a few hours of burn-in time. My recommendation for most users is Black.
    Is there any difference between these and the m20 earbuds?
    A shopper on Jul 9, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Looking at it I see there are two differences. The first is the design, it is shaped a little different. The other difference is the tuning nozzles. The M20 does not come with them. The M30 has two sets, one set for higher sounds and the other set is for more bass. Other than those two things there is no difference. The specs are the exact same.
    Is there much noise from the wires on these? I've had some earphones that make so much noise from the wires that they're practically unusable.
    **By noise I mean as the wires rub or move around while using them.

    BEST ANSWER: No noise problem...great deal at $30. If you an afford twenty bucks more and can get an open box, the MP80's are an even better score. i use them in my drum studio as my go to IEM. However, I take the MP30's to the gym.
    Are these compatible with Apple Mac iPad?
    Volney B on Jun 1, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: If you're wondering if sound will come out of them when you plug them into an iPad, the answer is yes, but understand that these earphones are not as expensive or cool as something you could buy in an Apple store and the other iSheep may shun you for opting for sound quality over having the Apple logo. What you may be concerned with is the audio controls for the Apple device, but have no fear, these are just earphones without a mic or control. I have the more expensive MP80 and I still prefer the MP30 over them for most music I listen to.

    BEST ANSWER: I suppose this could depend on the fabric of one's clothing. For me, there is a little noise, but it's not obtrusive.
    What is the real difference between the Mp30 filters and which one do you prefer?.
    Marcelino L on Dec 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The bass filter works great on my ipod classic, but is a bit to much on my other DAP's, some of them have a bit of blur with the bass that creeps into the midrange, no blur with the ipod.. The other works really good on my others, with excellent bass and detail.
    does it have mic ?
    A shopper on Oct 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No microphone. Most of the upscale earbuds do not have mics.

    Best in ear headphones I’ve heard. Period.
    Wow! I have tried at least 50 different brands of in ear headphones and these have the best soun i’ve heard.

    Realistic, accurate sound
    Very wide soundstage
    Multiple times i’ve though that sounds in the audio were coming from someone/something by me.
    High quality construction

    No microphone.
    I’d like some controls on the headset.

    Monoprice has come a long way from their first headphones.
    Monoprice has come a long way. The MP30 are some of the best sounding earbuds I have ever used. The built quality is amazing. The soundstage is massive, the highs are crisp and clear, and the imaging is superb.And finally the bass. These headphones have the deepest cleanest bass I have ever heard in a pair of earbuds even at low volume. These ear buds are so good that I will be buying a couple more pairs to give as gifts.

    Really good iem ohones
    I just got these on 1/2/2018, and right out of the box they sound good. With the bass tuning port, my old ipod classic 160 these sound great. I am going to try the other tuning ports this weekend and see how good they sound. For the price, you would be hard pressed to find a beeter iem.

    Can you you even match their performance for twice the price?
    Okay, professional audio engineer here. And, no, that isn't a euphemism for working from my mom's basement. I have a career based on pushing buttons and turning knobs in the studio/lab. Points of reference are the following in no particular order: BlueSky Sat6D studio monitors, JBL LSR305's, Chane A5rx-c towers, Chane A2.4 LCR's, Sennheiser HD280 Pro's, Sony MDR-7506's.

    Strictly in terms of accuracy across genres, just throw the silver nozzles in the garbage bin. Too much bass, which contaminates the midrange and obscures high end detail. The sense of air and space is greatly diminished, if not eliminated altogether. The soundstage is narrow and confined. The only people the silver nozzles will appeal to are hip-hop lovers and those who have devices with very weak pre-amp outputs (like old iPods) that tend to neuter the bass. Otherwise, skip directly to the black nozzles for newer iPhones (6 and above) and newer devices. I'm using these primarily on my iPhone 8 with the Apple Lightning adapter and Tidal HiFi. They need to be broken-in (duh) and are sharp out of the box. But let them play at moderate volumes for about a day and they really come into their own. Really expansive, holographic soundstage, good timbre, very little tinniness until you get to dangerous output levels. With the black nozzles, ear canal seal is critical to prevent attenuating the bass. So experiment. Two sets of the medium ear piece (what worked for me) are provided and they are all excellent quality. They will not come off by accident. After break-in (which took about 24 hours), rock and hip-hop sound really good, but classical is still unmolested. The harsh sound of the black nozzles out of the box mellowed considerably and is now very sweet. Parts of me still wish for a middle step between the silver and the black (and I may fiddle with a drill press in the future, to increase the interior diameter of the silver nozzles, reducing the bass output somewhat). But, I cannot imagine getting better quality sound for $30. And, real Beryllium armature drivers? Get real! The value and refinement equation cannot be overemphasized. These are not perfect, but for the price..... get real. Just buy them. I have a buddy with some Shure IEM ear molds that I have tried in my own custom ear molds (sans IEM modules; the Shures fit right in) and these MP30's are dangerously close to them after break in...with maybe even a better sense of air up top and slightly weaker bass (just as good quality of bass, just not as much of it). I imagine these will continue to break in and get better with time. I am VERY pleased for my money spent.

    best earbuds i've ever had
    these are the best earbuds i've ever gotten from monoprice. i took them into a bestbuy and compared them to dr dre beats and there was absolutely no comparison at 8x the price! the sound is pure and clean and the bass is tight and fantastic coming directly out of my computer or roku stick. i can't wait to hear what they sound like after i purchase the desk top headphone amp. i've had them for a couple of months now and they are holding up perfectly. monoprice really hit the nail on the head with these!

    Best earbuds I've ever had
    Best earbuds in the Monoprice catalog, and best earbuds I've ever tried. Super clear sound quality with a remarkably clean high end. Such a difference this makes.

    The fit feels perfect.

    The wood construction is super slick.

    Note that here's no mic or control button on these.

    Had it for a few days and so far it works great. Sounds good, very clear. Hope it will last.

    Very Nice Sound
    This is well worth it. You can tell a difference in the tuning nozzles it is not a lot for me, but it may be for someone else as I am not that much of an audiophile. But they are well worth it...

    Excellent, needs a set of "medium" nozzles.
    I hate it when people leave ratings that say "good for the money". I just want to know if a product is good...period!That being said, these are excellent earbuds. Well worth the $25, and are more comparable to earbuds 3X the price.That being said, there could be some improvements. There needs to be a "medium" set of ear nozzles. The large pair are far too bass-y. Think booming Bose, not tight bass. The smaller nozzles get rid of all the bass and are a more neutral EQ. I wish there were a medium set that had bass in between the two sets of nozzles. I don't care for the silicon tips, but that's mostly a personal preference. If they had a set of foam tips included, I would love them a lot more, and would give the impression of a much more "high end" earbud to match the packaging.
