I sure hope they sound better than the gold edition I recently sold. Nice thing about ordering from onecall is that they are an authorized Monster dealer, so no issues when sending them to Monster for warranty or exercise your one time at fault replacement unit. Keep this in mind when getting them from eBay or other so-called unauthorized source because Monster will not budge with the warranty. I inquired about my gold editions when I had them and Monster flat out ignored me.
What did you think of the golds?

The golds are supposed to be a little more bassy while the coppers are more neutral?

I'd sorta like a more bassy headphone, but really, I would like to hear some reviews from people who have heard the coppers and golds.

For me, it's all about the sound. Aesthetics should be secondary, if at all, but to each there own, I guess. Case in point - Koss PortaPro, ugly, but sq is unbeatable even at retail price.

The golds low end bass is simply amazing. I've owned the IE8 and FX500 and they can't touch the low end bass coming from turbine pro gold. I kind of regret selling the gold because I pretty much paid the same price for the copper. It's that awesome. I must commend Monster for producing a great product. I think it really holds its own along with the great line of IEM's l(IE8, Westone 3, SE530, UE10).

I would check eBay if want to get a bargain price minus the warranty privilege. I saw a new gold edition sell for $135.

How were the mids and highs? Yes, I'm asking for a mini-review!
How were male and female vocals? One person who reviewed said the that the treble was a bit laid back, did you find that to be the case?
What are you looking for in the copper that you felt the gold lacked?

Why on earth would the copper's msrp be 100$ more than the gold?


p.s. I liked Monster's warranty--iems seem quite prone to manufacturing defects and random acts of clumsiness, it's neat that they are covering both.

^^^ It has been said.....I have not seen a reliable source saying so yet. I don't really view the golds as bass heavy, it would have to be pretty similar overall is my guess. I really doubt it's better or worse, just different tastes. I may pull the trigger on the coppers, but I doubt it would be worth it. The golds sound good, and for me, monster needs to offer more sizes of ear tips.

Here's what our fearless leader Jude had to say about the copper when asked if it was better than the gold:

It is more neutral than anything Monster has released so far, to these ears (though there is still some bass emphasis, but placed low enough to work great, and without sacrificing control). It has wide soundstaging, especially with the new, upcoming foam/silicone hybrid tips. It also has what I consider to be outstanding, extended treble for a universal-fit in-ear monitor. It is very resolving.

To me, nothing states how serious Monster is about this market than these Turbine Pros (especially the "Copper Edition"), and the fact that they've innovated two new kinds of eartips (both soon to be available).

I actually think the portapros are some of the coolest looking cans out there XD. I suppose they make a (retro) statement while still sounding good. That's really a matter of taste thing. But yea definitely sound before looks for me. I lugged around my RX700s in public very happily for like a month until I got my PX200-IIs XD The stares I would get from people were hilarious!

Well, Enanthate, Alphaphoenix?

I just received mine today and plan on burning them for the next 50 hours or so, which I normally due with dynamic driver earphones. However, my initial assessment with the out of the box experience, is that they are indeed more neutral sounding that the Golds. The deep, low end bass is also there, but doesn't seem as prominent as the Golds. Also, recalling the days when I owned the Golds, I think the Coppers are a lot lighter than the Golds.

I'll have more after a few days.

I am 100% impressed with the Gold, so if the copper is more neutral, Monster may well clinch the mass market dynamic crown. The Gold already convince me there is no reason to spend more on the IE8 and while not as fibrous, the Gold is overall a more sonorous earphone than the FX500.

Hey there Seoul brother from another mother, I have to agree 100% yet again with your assessment regarding the MTP with the IE8 and FX500, which I've owned both in the past. Monster did it right with the MTP line. I think once one gets past the Monster stigmata and gives them a chance in a real listening session, a huge grin will downplay all negative expectations. Monster deserves the mass market dynamic crown with the Gold and Copper Editions.

Mine should be here tomorrow. I'll post initial out of the box impressions

The box is ... while overlarge, a great box. Monster do a good job of quality impressions from the first.
