I agree. There's something Egyptian about the whole color scheme, I want to say. It does remind me of some of Davis's outfits.
I wear blue/grey/black, boredom itself. But I like these things. I always thought the IE8 resembled the cables that attach atop car batteries.
So... What do they sound like, especially compared to the other Turbines, which I've been reading about? As someone else has summed up, the Copper is apparently the transparent one, with the edge on soundstage, and the Gold is apparently the "fun" one, with the edge on bass.
I've read Monster's copy on how these are supposedly geared toward jazz. I listen to rock so I'm curious if the bias would help or hurt me.
As for their price, quite frankly I don't think anything under $500, with a lifetime warranty, is overpriced. I've stayed away from the e-Q7 thus far partly because a one-year warranty on a $300+ IEM has left me burned once before.
