Are they the same? is it just the material used to make the housing that improves the sound? Just curious.

IDK if they are the same driver or not, however, each version of the Turbine has a different sound signature.  So even if it is the same driver, they are tuned differently.

I doubt they're the same but who knows. The Coppers sound considerably better IMO. Joker separates them only by a tenth of a point in his review thread, but to me it would be more like a .5 difference or higher

Quality is subjective.

I heard the designer said it was the same 8mm driver. With the Tributes having the most sophisticated tuning.

Are you sure?
 


 
 
Yes...  Sound is sensed...  Sound quality is perceived.  The differences (though minor) begin in the fact that no 2 people will not sense sound exactly the same.  Sure, they will be very close, but it will not be exactly the same.  This difference won't play a big roll in terms of sound quality.  In order to get sound quality, you must first sense the sound (which there is a minor difference already).  However, how we perceive, or what we make of, the sound will differ greatly from person to person.  Our own preferences will always, unintentionally, be added to our perception of sound quality as well. 
 
For example, what just happened above.  You said you would have rated it differently than Joker.  You perceived the sound quality that came out of the headphones to be different than how Joker saw them (but you both heard the same sound, to some degree).  Since you both perceived the sound a different way, it [the sound quality] became subjective (separate from the [listener's] external body).  If it was objective, you both would have seen it the same way (and so would everyone else).  Due to the subjectiveness of how we perceive sound quality, we do have to take every review with a grain of salt.
