Haven't had to deal with Monster CS, so I can't tell you how it is.

Just received mine yesterday. These are by far the best monster IEMs I've ever heard.

Previously I've owned the Turbines and MD Tributes and the SQ on the gratitudes is quite superior.

Detail retrieval is excellent, good quantities of bass and treble. Mids a little scooped IMO. Tons of accessories. Definitely one of the better sub $100 IEM values especially if you're a fan of the U or V shaped sound sig.

With the greater quantity of treble, are you noticing any sibilance or harshness in the highs?

I remember the highs were a little splashy when I first got them.  They did get a little better with time, but never really fixed XD

I to find them a touch splashy although certainly not harsh. This is something that most likely can be fixed with different tips.

Is there anyone using non-stock tips?  If so, which ones and why?

post #97 of 148

When I had only the Monster Yao Solars I used Sony Hybrid tips, mostly because I was having a problem getting a consistent seal with the standard Monster tips.  They didn't really affect the sound much one way or the other.  The other thing I tried was using blue sticky tac instead of tips, and that worked pretty well as well, but it was kind of finicky and not always super secure.

 

Since I received my Gratitudes I just about always use the XS gel Supertips.

Hate to contribute to the pile of questions to be answered, but does anyone feel any sense of sibilance with these? I mean, I generally don't trust amazon reviews, but many people seem to complain about "too much treble". Some impressions on head-fi seem to mention that they're a bit treble happy too. Of course treble tolerance plays a role but just wondering.

I'd say they're definitely treble boosted. Too me, not very sibilant unless you're dealing with low quality audio files. 

 

In my experience, tip-rolling is often an easy way to tweak the treble of an iem. Not saying that they require it, but its certainly an option if one was to find them too trebly!

Cool thanks, I'm not terribly treble sensitive so I don't think sibilance will be an issue here in this case. Might get a pair sometime tonight hopefully it gets here by friday through amazon prime of course :D

Do these have super tips?
post #102 of 148

They're not THE Supertips, but they're close. They're a dark copper color gel tip that feels and sounds almost identical to the SuperGels.

Boo. I just want some super tips again

For anyone that's interested, I've decided to sell my Gratitudes. They've been out of the box for 5 minutes. I'm not listing em in the FS thread yet so PM me if you'd like to own one of the most underrated IEMs available.

I'm curious: Why, after just 5 minutes, have you decided to get rid of the (currently bargain-priced) IEMs you consider "one of the most underrated available"?
