I'm still sold on the sound of my TM Tour Burner. Really solid thwack, without sounding harsh or sharp. Not eardrum busting like the ONOFF ones.

ONOFF is how ur hearing is after pounding one with their driver. ROFL

Titleist drivers tend to lean more towards a meaty thud, seemingly preferred by pros and low amateurs alike. Harking back to the good old days of persimmon.

Mid to higher handicappers seem to prefer a more metallic "pow" or "twang". Gives the illusion of a real explosive launch, esp with slower swing speeds.

Makes sense to me since the harder you hit, the louder the impact.

To me, these days, it's all about the feel not the sound.

lol! lol! lol!

@birdman -- titty drivers have a more solid thwack, and feel much better. am guessing that it is either what they put into the head (hot melt?) or the nature of the bore through shafting. maybe DGman can enlighten us

for me i think TM drivers generally sounds great...especially the R7, R9 and burner...even their utilities like woods or hybrid oso sound very nice when kanna sweet spots..

I think my Dymo 2 is really loud. It did become quieter a little after I reshafted it with a grafalloy.

the old callaway drivers has the tiny metal "ting" sound i like. the new callaway drivers are just plain loud, i hate it.

titleiest sounds like "piak", not and interesting sound.

TM sounds like the old callaway drivers.

I think most of the feel in the driver comes from the shaft for me. boardy shafts just feel bad. whippy shafts just make you cannot feel where the head is.

I think we need to quantify what it means by a nice sound if we were to ever get to conclusion. If it's subjective then that is fine.

As for my clubs, G20 on good contact sounds like an explosion to me.. Smile
but I prefer the sound of i15, it's explosive and less harsh (read : high frequency)

To me, the best drivers must create two sounds, not one. The two sounds are:

"Oh my god!" - this sound comes from me.

"F@rk! Gimme more strokes!" - this sound comes from my playing mate(s).
