i still think they are good earphones though.
The golds can sound a little unnatural with some types of music /albums due to there bass pressence ,although the coppers are a lot more balanced and sound quite natural to me now there burned in,as for the westone 3,compared to all the ofter iems i have they are the most unnatural sounding iem i own ,except for the shure se420 that is,but i do agree the westone 3 mids and treble are very clear .

yupp. i personally haven't had the possibility to listen to some myself. so i can only refer to things people who own a pair of them have said about them. maybe i can buy some and try them out and if i don't like them send them back.
turbines are cheaper than W3s and they look a little bit more expensive and solid whereas the W3 look a little bit cheap and plastic like even though the sound is what matters.

The Westone IEMs don't look and feel as cheap as in the pictures in your hand. They're solid. However, you can't beat metal for sheer strength. Westone knows what they're doing with their 40+ years of experience working with the ear, and the way they design their universals shows to that. The W2 fits perfectly in my ear, near close enough to the fit I'd get with a custom. The Turbines look more blingy to me, and definitely won't have the same fit.
If you are fine with waiting a bit, I'll be comparing the W2 to the Coppers when they arrive. I think the Coppers will have to sound pretty good to make me take them over the excellent fit, cable, and build quality of the Westone, but I doubt the hype is unwarranted.

yea the turbines do look a bit blingy and might not isolate and sit in your ears as comfortable i agree.
since i still have to save up a bit of money i'm kinda forced to wait!
looking forward for your comparison!

^^^^isolation is one of the monster turbines pro strenghts, they isolate very well even with no music playing.

Both the golds and the copper are very blingy though, you look like an extra from pirates of the carribeanen with these in your ears, and they do draw attention from people when your out and about, but they do sound great though.

^^^^ It sounds like the copper or orto eq 7 might be for you, but like by buddy says, it's really taste, the eq7 has sondstage and clarity in spades, And maybe some of the most precise bass around..The W3 is more fun sounding that accurate FWIR...
post #203 of 2250
^^^^^ id go along with search on that one,the ortofon eq7 takes all the good points of the westone 3,clarity,soundstage,a very lean clean mid range but more natural sounding and replaces that over bearing bloated bass with a very linear tight bass and has a soft sparkly treble which makes for a very pure and detailed listen.

I'm gonna have to agree with Luco about the Turbine Pros sounding natural. Don't mistake thick, full, punchy bass w/ being unnatural. I listen to the Eagles Hotel California Live on the Pro Golds and its sounds very clean and clear as if I were at the concert. I'm curious about the Coppers because I'd like a little more treble extension if I can do so w/o compromising much of what the Golds do.

BTW, for when you do listen to techno, hip hop, etc, you are gonna be glad you have those Golds.

@Ethan

Aren't the Panny CZ's supposed to be stronger than metal housings?

I just succumbed =(
USD290.....did I get a good deal?

From eBay apparently this guy got it as a gift, 100% positive score albeit only 3 votes, apparently brand new unopened but we shall see......

what are the differences between the normal turbines, copper,gold and MD ones? anyone had the chance to listen to all/some of them? since i just recently heard about them i don't know that much about them yet. just know that the MD's are supposed to be very good while listening to jazz but also other genres.

In a nutshell, apparently normal turbines are pretty good, with an emphasis on bass.
Gold is like a normal turbine on steroids, with humongous bass.
Copper is like a more refined, audiophile-quality version of Gold, with muter bass and presents a more balanced image.

I gleaned all these simply from reading the posts, not from any personal audition, is my disclaimer, but you experienced folks let me know if i'm wrong, yea?

The MD.....heck i'm gonna find out soon when i get mine =)

well let me know what you think of them then. =)
can't wait for ethan961 to get his coppers and see what he thinks about them compared to the W2.
post #209 of 2250
LOL Ethan, I was about to bid outbid your 290 but changed my mind at the last second.
post #210 of 2250
BTW Ethan, see if you can get the receipt, I'm not sure you will get the warranty w/o it. Replacement yes, warranty not so sure....
