I have not heard the MTP gold but I'm trying to get one on the cheap. I'm happy with my VB's though and unless you can somehow get the Atrio's for under 80$ I would not get them.
I used the Super FI EB's for a year and the Atrio's for a year. I enjoyed the Atrio's but the VB's are so much better than them in every way shape and form I would not consider going back to them. On the Atrio's there was completely missing higher freq's compared to the VB's. It was amazing that instruments and details that simply did not exist on the Atrio's were very clear and detailed on the VB's. And the bass is just much better quality on the VB's but still has the same impact as the Atrio's.
The Super FI EB's aren't even worth considering at this point, boomy bass and a very hollow recessed sound.
From what I have read of the Gold's they are pretty good but I'm not sure they are going to be a huge upgrade over the VB's.
Jaben in singapore sells the atrio for 260SGD which is roughly 170USD. why wont the price drop man...
my ears are sensitive to harshness and i prefer balanced and smooth sound signature. i listen mostly to POP and abit of alternative rock.So i guess higher frequency range doesnt affects me much.Wait till i try the VB soon enough and decide on which to get...Thanks though
