I knew it, was inevitable.  I'll wait for the Iridium Pros.

hey guys, may i ask a few questions? :)    Im looking for a new IEM, I listen to all type of music genres, but mostly i listen to rock or maybe metal... I like a tight and deep bass on my music, with a good texture on guitar distortion, but also has the sparkle of highs in it. Im thinking of getting this Turbine, but I dont think that they have the sparkle and guitar texture that i want. What do you think guys? would it be good for me?  and If i pair it with a govibe martini which has good details and staging, would it make an improvement? thanks guys

Only the MTP Coppers will give you what you crave in the Monster lineup.

Yeah, the standard turbines are really best for hip hop/r&b.

Are there any differences between the Pro Gold and Pro Copper?

 

I'm looking for IEMs with fantastic bass for electronica/house/dubstep/etc that also sound amazing for alt rock/etc..

The coppers have toned down the bass a bit, so if bass is important, go with the Golds.

Do the golds need an amp to drive them or would I be fine using them with a Sansa Clip+?
post #1013 of 1118

The Clip+ doesnt need to be amped. I know =)

For rock you're going to want to EQ your turbines, the mids are a bit recessed.

I have never been so happy for my headphones to break. The right earbud was having volume problems and I had received free 2 year warranty from futureshop. They had the old pair and the new pair I told the guy I wanted the one with the blue box L3000.gif. So look at what I got inside: IMG_1357.jpg

Lucky you...would have sucked to get the straight plug twice like I did, with the same box art!  I've got the right angle plug now tho too (thanks amazon deal)...so it's all good.  :)

It feels like they changed the cable, doesn't seem to stick to itself like before. My old one only came with a leather case this one came with a suede case and a magnetic case. I think mine old ones were starting to fail overall because these seem to have a lot more bass that I was accustomed to.

The nice thing about future shop is that you don't even need the warranty to exchange them ;)

Just got my Turbines today:) I'm having some issues with the buds though i can't really get a good fit. Do anyone have a recommendation to try something out or some specific bud that works for them from what you get? Also how is other peoples isolation and have you tested it how people around you hear? Now i didn't get a perfect fit but people around can hear what i listen to very very low but still hearable.

You don't have a good seal obviously.  Did you read the instructions that tell you to pull up on your ear tip, insert them and release?
