Monster Turbine Gold vs ...?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hey, I just ordered the Monster Turbine Golds for $188.

 

If you all had 188 to drop on IEMs, would you go for the Golds or something else?

That depends on what you like to a large degree. The MTPG have alot of bass, decent mids that are slightly forward and nice if somewhat rolled off treble, the sound stage is not bad but not huge. Does this sound like what your looking for and what type of music do you listen to?

How would those Golds compare to the Senn IE8s? It looks like you can get the IE8s for about the same price...

I listen to a very wide range of music. Everything from rap/hip-hop to piano rock... I love clarity, but I have to have a solid amount of bass

I got my Golds from Amazon for about $180 as well earlier this year. I love 'em.

 

I actually prefer them to the IE8. IMO the new crop of dynamic IEMs from Monster have already toppled the IE8 dynasty, but the fact that the ancient IE8 can still go toe to toe with them shows just how good they are. 

 

For $180 the Golds are a steal. They have better mids than the IE8 unless you prefer the IE8's rather distant, spacy quality. Bass-wise the IE8 has just a smidgen more bass. Both have the same nice rolled off treble. The Golds basically just have a slight edge in clarity over the IE8 to my ears, whereas the IE8 has a bigger soundstage and more bass. I can't think of any other IEM I'd rather have at $180.
