  JUST...GET...THOSE turbine golds! (if you can comfortably afford them, I'd say the original turbines get you to about 80% of the turbine golds.

I do it all the time. I personally think they sound better than my Etys or Shures (425) straight from my iPhone. The only iems that I own that sound better are my Ultimate Ears Triple.fi 10s. They have a nice kick to the low-end that sounds great from a plain-jane iPhone. At home with an EQ, they need a little more work, but when you combine the great un-amped sound with the ease of putting in/taking out and the comfort factor, they're great iems for what you want.

 

If the money's no big deal, the Golds are really a HUGE step up from the regular Turbines (which are great little inexpensive earphones in their own right).

TOTALLY different sound. Very warm, with deep, controlled bass that you just don't get in the regular Turbines. Plus, they come with the Monster supertips, which are really extremely comfortable, and add a lot to the sound.

sorry one of my posts didnt go on 

SO what in the sound

More refined and

more detail in the bass??

post #8 of 36

Pretty much. The bass is powerful, but controlled -- not muddy. Also, lots more clarity all around. Just a step up in almost every regard.

ok well I can get the regulars for 101 and the pros for 200

In my opinion, the Pro Golds are EASILY worth $100 more than the regulars. I think I paid 270 for mine, and I don't regret it at all. Really solid, versatile phones.

you're overpaying for both, turbines go for about $60 in the used market, $170 from onecall.com for a NIb pair of golds (gotta call them asking for the best price though)

no, that's for the openbox deal, call them (yup, that means the telephone) ask them for the the lowest price they can give for the New mptg's and they should give you $170 as there best, if they give you something higher, call again later

I think that J&R could also go that low (if not lower) if you call them.

The Golds and the regular Turbines both sound great, but the golds sound much crisper and cleaner than the regular turbines.
