Does amazon sell the one with the "poop" strain reliefs? Do the improved ones look like the ones on the copper and gold?
Well, got them in the mail yesterday, and I really want to like them. They sound great to me, but getting a seal was very finicky. But more problematic then that, is that there is a very audible channel imbalance. The left side feels almost non-existent. I expected better. I had heard so many good things about them... but i'm severely disapointed. I'm going to try to contact Monster and see if they'l do anything about it.
Well, I found out that it was a problem with the included tips, but mostly a problem on my part, having inserted the tip too deeply into my ear and having bent the silicone, cutting off the sound. I hope your right about the Hybrid's, I just ordered some.
While I haven't tried the hybrids, I found that the Monster Super Tips worked great compared to stock tips. Although the durability of the Foam Hybrid super tips was a little less that spectacular.
I find the Monster Super Tips quite fatiguing... my ears feel extremely uncomfortable after couple of hours of usaga, might be because they exert too much pressure on the cannal since they are so hard compared to actual foam tips.
Nope you're not the only one. I find the stock tips great, I was using the large stock tips but found when I pull my ear up and pop them in I would lose the sound and not get a seal, so I dropped down to medium, now they're perfect / stay in place /seal without a problem. It's fairly important because i tried other tips which changed the sound completely. The stock tips are how they're designed to sound.
I got a chance to test drive the Gold in Best Buy. The sound was just what I wanted.... So of course I bought a pair.
Right out of the box, they don't sound like the pair in the store. I'm guessing that this is what everyone talks about - the "burn in" thing.
Nope, you're not the only one.....the stock ones seems to sound AND fit the best for me as well.
