I think m5 looks too big :x
Well, after LOTS of reading i am just confused. I need a earphone that plays well with metal(thrash metal, metallica, megadeth, slayer, and some heavy metal) and as secondary, some pop/rock(u2/led/beatles/black sabbath/etc), i really enjoy fast guitar riffs, like master of puppets, rust in peace, and guitar solos. The phones can't sound BRIGHT or light bass(at least enough, or plenty) I was first tempted to the Westone series(um3x, w3) but they're kinda expensive and...

do you guys think um3x performs well for metal? or should i just go for w3? i do listen to metallica(specially) and megadeth mostly i also like many kinds of music(pop(u2), rock, classical) but it is a MUST to perform well with metallica and alikes if it helps for comparison purposes, i have a ath-ck7, and it is just WAY too harsh for my ears, i have to equalize to something like -6 db on the 4~8k range, this thing, has no hope for me :x i even thought it was defective

Do u think phonak's are good for metal? like metallica/megadeth ? because i have a ck7, and it's just awful to hear, they are VERY exagerated in the 4~8k freq range, and it hurt my ears as hell without eq'ing btw, i REALLY don't want to eq on my portable rig if anyone ever had an philips shp805 and could compare... they're much better to my ears than the ck7's i was also thinking about the atrios m5, but i don't like to idea of burn-in anymore
