It is a matter of choosing a preferred sonic signature.  These are 'fun' IEM's designed to entertain your ears, not flat/neutral IEMS which might be more 'accurate' and/or 'boring'.  With the proper burn-in, tip choice, and insertion they each do well with detail retrieval.  However, the Coppers are the fastest drivers if you listen to ridiculously quick speed/death metal.

They are still pretty accurate though. And neutral/flat, accuracy, transparency, etc do not equal boring. And fun earphones do not mean that they are not accurate either. There is much overlap that we are talking about here.

You guys are making me consider the Golds all over again.... I've yet to hear the coppers! But the reviews and comments I've read have told me that they are top notch... Such a good problem to have with all 3 of them being great in their own way...

I'd really like to hear more people's opinions on any of them!

Absolutely true, though certain phones (usually BA driven) that are flat often sound boring to my ears.  I think a flat, neutral, accurate and FUN phone is the exception and not the rule.

What did you want to get out of your phones again Jugger?

I find that Etymotic is fun. 

 

And Juggernaut, don't waste too much money buying universal earphones. One or 2 at most I'd say, if you want to keep buying, why not jump to custom? By the way, do you play Dota? cos' your name is the same as some hero there...

Well I tried the Golds and loved them.... Then I read the Miles Davis Tribute appreciation thread, and I was sold about 1/2 through the 40 or so pages...

I just want something that looks great, sounds exceptional, is comfortable, is unique, I love the fact that they're limited edition, that helps to my appeal... I have never considered "customs" nor do I really know what they are! LOL Audio n00b in the flesh!!

I not real good at using like audio-type terms and stuff so I really don't know how to explain what I'm looking to get out of the MD's without sounding like a n00000b!

Ety's (ER4) are fun, w/ half the frequency spectrum and I hardly think of them as neutral.

Livewires, Unique melody, JH13/JH16, ES5, JH3A, EM3Pro.  If you like dynamic drivers get some custom sleeves from ACS.  The world is your oyster.

Custom earphones are expensive, so unless you have like near 1K to splurge, better save up your money. Popular brand, for example JH audio, Earsonics, Ultimate Ear, Westone, Livewires, Unique Melody, ACS, etc etc. Quite a lot of companies.

Get out of my head!!

You know, by having buying less amps and players and earphones, those money amount to a custom earphone. I really want to get the JH3A once things settle down.

Well if looks, uniqueness, and all that matter then I think the MD's are for you.  If you loved the Golds I do think you will like the MD's even more on top of giving you all those things that aren't related to sound.  Plus that great warranty.  Maybe this will push you over the edge, my MD's are serial# M0451!  Lol.

MD is all about bling bling man. First time I see gold colored earphone with deep blue color cable.
