Are they worth that much more???

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

 

Hey, I'm working with onecall to get some Monster Turbines.

 

I'm deciding between Gold and Copper.

 

 

They have offered me the Golds at $215. The Coppers at $259.

 

Are the coppers worth the additional $44?

Sure, if you like a more extended treble, more detail, a more balanced presentation and no mid-bass hump or bleedover into the mids. The golds are very good, though.

If you want added treble response and detail, and slightly better soundstage then yes. If you want a slightly darker sound with slightly rolled of treble then the Golds will do the trick.

So the difference is VERY minimal it sounds like?

 

What if I combined it with a iBasso T3?

I'm having a hard time swallowing this.

 


Are they worth $260???

 

Or should I buy something else for that amount?

x2 plus the coppers are no wear near as warm sounding as the golds

The opposite of cold sound.
