I wish I had them to compare. They sound like it would be much better than the gel tips. When I tried the gel supertips all I heard was bass everywhere. Mids and highs felt recessed in comparison so they definitely didn't do it for me.

Well, soon enough you'll be able to hear them!

I have the smaller and medium sizes of foam supertip, so hopefully one will fit you.

true that If these are any good I may be able to use them on my e-Q7 once it becomes available assuming it doesnt cost 50 bucks or anything stupid.

Nice review. I just called monster because my MTPC's didn't come with the foam super tips. The gave me a reference # and said they will ship me the set of foam super tips at no charge after I emailed them a copy of my receipt. Hopefully they won't slack on shipping them out. Lol

I have a pair thanks to a head-fier (who shall go nameless until given the green light that it's okay to mention that person). When I first put them in my ear I inserted them with a shallow seal. I could hear the bass, mids and cymbals, but everything sounded thin and distant. I didn't care for it. Oh, Let me say that I only tried them on my Miles Davis and the Ortos. Anyway, I said to myself maybe they need to go in deeper like the Shure Olives. So I tried that and nice bass and mids, but the treble was completely gone. So I was ready to let them hit the trash bin.

But I thought about giving them another go, and this time I tried an insertion a bit more than the initial shallow insertion, but not too deep. WoW!! They started shining!! Bass and mids are nice and treble extension is there (granted, you don't get all the treble and highs you would get if you were listening to the MDs with Senn. double flanges or the Radio Shack Auveos). The hybrid tips warms up and darkens the vocals and mids a tad bit and I like it. Since I'm not a huge treble fan (but I like to be able to hear enough nuances and detail) this is just perfect.

For some reason, I didn't like the hybrid foams on the Ortos. But I never tried again to get the proper insertion, so that may be the reason why. Plus, I love the Sony Hybrids (medium and large) on the Ortos. They are my tips of choice for that IEM.

So for me, the Monster foam hybrids are very nice (you really feel them in your ear either; they are so soft) if you don't mind fiddling around with them and getting the right insertion (not too deep and not too shallow). I haven't tried them on the Copper or any other IEMs as of yet. I'll get back to you guys on that one.

i find the supertips to be very comfortable while providing better sound over the other tips that came with the copper pro.
i am using the smallest pair.

Hehe same here, they look very interesting.

I noticed the same... I got 4 sizes of the white supertips w/ my my MTP Coppers; I use the 2nd largest size, I don't have vast experience w/ IEM tips, bu they are easily the best I've used.
post #25 of 103
What size do you guys have? Is there even a size...? Because the ones Monster sent me are too small for my ear canal.
post #26 of 103
My faves are still the Shure Fruit Loops (Yellow Foams) only problem is the hole is too small for the larger IEMs, have to do a lot of work stretching the tube to fit on a Turbine for instance.

I use them with the eQ7 and with most of my other earphones too because they are that comfortable and for foams, have very little impact on the sound.

Sounds interesting, where can the "replacement tips" to try out? Point of disagreement, Olives doing muck up sound on my IEMs, on the contrary they isolate well and leaves the music intact with little coloration. The silicon sounds worst, I can get a decently flat response with Olives and X5s.

^^ Depending on the shape of your ear canals, Olives can really muck up the sound; the foam bits cover the sound bore, forcing boomy, resonant bass. If your canals are large, it won't happen, but considering how they jab pretty deeply, you are probably hearing a 'mucked up' sound.

I also like the Olives, but they do create a sometimes bewildering bass. They isolate well enough, but unfortunately, they tend to hurt my ears.

do these extend further up the nozzle compared to most tips like the comply's?
