Hey, please can you pick me up some mediums?

We're Radio Shackless in the UK

@ kunlun, I would say it's worth a try, the senn tips don't work as well on the copper as the orto's but if your canals are a little shallower rhan mine, you might be good. Like lucozade, I can stick the orto's all the way to the handles/strain relief....and I'm afraid, there is still room......My ear canals are freaks (lucozade makes me feel not so alone)

@ eric...... no luck selling the ie8's?

@ lucozade...... still working on improvement ......LMAO, your reply made me laugh.

Nope @ search...No luck selling the IE8s. But in all fairness, I haven't really pushed them like I did the others. I haven't even posted photos up yet like I did with my other IEMs and D2000 for sale. I think it's because I don't hate the IE8, just wanted to make room for the MDs. But I definitely not feeling like the IE8s need to be gone. I'm sure they will eventually get my attention again, but right now the Copper and Orto has it and don't want to share.

So I guess in my heart I don't want to sell the IE8, but if I get a decent offer they are gone....

It's you who made me curious about the Radio Shack tips

When I first got the PFE tips, I thought I'd wasted my money because they did nothing for the sound at all, except to thin it out. But a few days ago I gave them another try and spent much more time trying to get the right fit, and finally I did. I really like them now, but would still like a bigger soundstage. So if you think the RS tips can do that, then Chris is going shopping for me too

I also love the ortos,they sound fantastic, in may ways they are a more pure ,accurate and precise sounding iem,but with a more unique sound sig than most iems ,so in general i feel the majoraty will prefer the more universally familiar fun orientaited sound of the monster pro range

Cn11 and search are making me want to get the MD (I'm mainly a jazz listener), but search seems to thinK I don't need the MD since I have the Copper and Orto. The Copper is a nice earphone, but that MD is intriguing me now.
@ lucozade, ericp10 and search
i think its quite strange that all of u like the ortos, but think that other people prefer the md or the coppers.
may be more useful to post your comparisons instead of speculating what other people like
post #143 of 2250
The differerence in the bass between the MDs and the Coppers isn't subtle, no matter how supreme your headphonus.

Shigzeo, one of the most well respected members/reviewers on this forum, had reservations on the orto. I was not sure what to expect. His exact quote was "they are not my cup of tea" when such a deservedly respected member, makes this statement, It weighs heavily in my book. So draw from that what you will.

I am a detail freak more often than not, especially on jazz. Jazz isn't my number 1 genre, having only 1200 jazz songs. It is however, an important genre (all but country are)....my love for the orto's comes into light best, when jazz is playing.
The orto's are incomparable to any other iem, for my peronal listening. The Transparency is unmatched, the most important factor in recreating the jazz club sound. ( all just my opinion)

That would depend on several factors....I'm not a supreme anything, yet I hear it as subtle.....Agian many factors are going to make a difference...

Define subtle......all 3 of them are much more similar than they are the different, if you read through all the impressions, that's the overwhelmig consensus.

The radio shack tips...just a tad too small.....by the looks of how thay fit, it may be the answer for many! I belive if they fit my big canals, they would be my choice.

Glad I helped @ Soozieq.. It was Anouk or someone who got me interested, or maybe Kunlun (I can't remember..lol). But they do give a wider soundstage than the PREs. Although I like the PFEs too. Depends on my mood..

Supernova, I haven't really made any comments about what other people like, but agreed with lucozade and search. And I agree with them mainly base on what some other threads have said about the Ortos. Those have mainly been fit issues from what I've read. Now, supernOva, I think it would helpful if you did some thread searching. I think you would find that the three of us have done comparisons. And I speak for myself and say I've done some extensive comparisons regarding the Ortos and Copper. Sometimes people come and ask the same questions over and over and not really do the research. I research, try it. It's really simple.

I didnt mean to put the ortofon down or imply that the monster iems are superior in eny way, infact as i said i love the ortos sound, it is indeed a top tier iem and one off my personal favorates ,its purity of sound and transparency is unequaled by any of the other iems i own,and i do have a few of the so called top tier iems to judge them by.

But i do get feeling that its unique sound signiture will not capture the hearts of as many ear phone uses as the monsters will with there more familier and dare i say expected sound signitures.(And by that i mean a more bass or treble orienated sound or even mids dominated sound that most of us are familier with and have been conditioned to look for in an earphone by earphone manufactures) .I myself am guilty of this and as much as i love the ortos i would not want to listen to my music only through them,sometimes i crave a thumping bass or the sparkle of a more strident treble,that your just not going to find on the very well balanced and polite ortofone

But as in all things only time will tell, and i personally hope that the ortofon will be a great success ,and that as many people as posible get the chance to experience there music through the ortofons,its an experience not to be missed and should enhance the musical experience for most people .

Now on any given day, I switch tips on the Copper. If I want a wider soundstage and lots of highs (the bass and mids will be there), I use the Radio Shack Auvio tips. If I want a more balanced sound (although I think they recess the highs a bit, but I'm not really a highs person so it's okay), i use the pfe tips. If I want the bass and mids really enhanced, I use these Xears foam tips..... So that's where I'm at buddy. And dreaming about the MDs...ol
@ericp
you dreaming about those mds to ericp!, umm,yes they are quite tempting ,im curious to try them as well, id like to see how they compair to the other two, but the best price ive seen them for over here in blighty is £310, there have to come down in price a fair bit befor i would pull the trigger on them though.
