Monster Gratitude live music IEMs - Page 9

post #121 of 148

I love Diesel (fashion, my favorite brand for about last 10-15 years). When i found info about Diesel-phones, i've put this pic to my avatar. Yes, now we can buy them. I'm in Ukraine and Monster is amazingly expensive here, so it is not easy to find a good official seller. Plus all Monster IEMs needs burn-in time at about 50+ hours.
Diesel Vektr (on-ears) are very comfortable with a good sound, but nothing special (price about 300$ in my country).
I like Monster IEMs and i think Vektr in-ear must be good.

I think later i should get them or experience with them. Liking Monster IEMs, loving Diesel, should be a very good synergy for me:)

Thats cool dude. Just let me know what you think about them when you get your hands on them.

Sure! I like Monster IEMs (was having Turbines and was listeting to Pro Gold and Nergy), now i own Gratitude.
Maybe they will have some extra Christmas and NewYear discounts, so more people in USA became their users and we will see some fresh topic very soon:)

Has anyone else tried modifying the fit of the Gratitudes? I have comply foam big tips on mine but have remoulded around the shell of the drivers so they fit my ears exactly. They are match for any of my iems, and beat the stock Sennheiser IE800s hands down for comfort and sound quality on the move

Im trying to decide between the Turbine and Gratitude, how do those two compare to each other? Looking at FR charts on innerfidelity and not learning much from them...

Gratitudes are much better in SQ. Plus try Sony Hybrid tips, you will have perfect seal and isolation. And of course sound, sound, sound:)

Comply tips are my personal favourite sounding ; even making an exact match into my ear canals doesn't produce the results these achieve. The bass is nothing like the impact without the complys. The customs may look rough but they are comfortable and there is much room for refinement cosmetically. And they don't come loose and block much more wind noise and microphonics

what is that blue stuff for?
post #133 of 148
That's silicone compound putty that's set. It's 2 part silicone gel that sets when you mix it together in about 15 mins. It's for making ear plugs. It can be adapted to make custom ear moulds. Easy smily_headphones1.gif

I got these from Amazon sale as well (fulfilled by Amazon) but I just don't find them anything spectacular. Honestly I am underwhelmed by them, they lack the punchy bass, heavy treble presence, and lacks detail compared to Westone 3, Monster MDT, even Sony MH1Cs. I tried variety of tips that it came with. Most tips actually lacked bass so badly, mid-low all, it was like listening to crappy headphones. I started using them with mh1c tips and they sound better, but still not as good as they were claimed to be.

 

Did I get fake ones?

I doubt there are fake ones around, I hope not. Box and stuff looks like monster product. Anybody know if fakes are around? Otherwise they will be a big disappointment for me.

Try pulling them out slightly and re-sealing them - air pressure in your ear canal can cause the problems you're describing as the Gratitudes are unvented dynamics.
