For the first two, I'm sure the it'd go to the Golds (based on what I've read from others; I haven't heard any of these IEMs)...  For the third...  Um...  I'll let someone else answer that.

If bass is all you're looking for, go with the Turbine Golds. Seeing as the UE Triple.fi 10 is also in that budget range, look at those too. They've got great bass punch, and treble, but provide a U-shaped sound signature.

Having owned all of them, I can chime in.

 

Monster Turbine Pro Golds. But be forewarned, they're build quality is so-so and their customer service is there but its not good. 

 

Out of those 3, the mtpg have the higest sound quality and most impactful bass. Also to me, the foam supertips are extremely comfortable and seal very well. 

 

They are quite pricey though and for the retail price of a MTPG, you can get better iems.

How does it sound with the gel supertips they provide? which they claim that they make the bass response better or something like that

Yea they claim that gel supertips can give deeper, tighter bass but I found no difference from the foam and gel tips. I honestly think its a personal preference more than sacrificing anything.

 

I originally planned to use the gel-tips based on what monster claimed but found them to get dislodged much much easier than the foam tips. The foam tips stay sealed and stuck in my ear with long comfort.

 

Anyways, if you do order the MTPG, they come with a wide array of supertips so there's no sense asking about tips because once they're in your hands, you will have to basically try'em all, lol.

I forgot to mention one thing, turbines are much heavier than most IEM's. Not sure if that'll play a factor for you or not but for me it didnt, even at the gym or jogging outside.

That won't be a problem

I own the Golds and my friend owns the S4's. I would definitely say get the Golds. I'm on my second pair as Monster quality control isn't that great, but they replaced my 1stpair in under a week no problem and I didn't even buy them from an authorized dealer. With this being said, buy them from an authorized dealer. I haven't had any problems with my second pair, but supposedly my warranty on them is now void.

 

As far as comfort, get a pair of Sony hybrids for tips don't use any Monster tips, except the foams if you want to. I couldn't get any supergel tips to fit so I couldn't comment on those, but I still say go with the Sony's, They're what I use and they're extremely comfortable, much more so than the S4's in my opinion. Also, take into account that the Turbines take some getting used to in order to get a good seal. You shouldn't put them in nearly as deep into your ear as you would with many other iems. You'll know when you get the right seal though.
