Just a pair of HD428s. I wanted the HD515 but since they were my first foray into the world of audiophiles I decided I'd go for a more reasonable set to avoid being disappointed and wasting my money. (But you all know how that turned out )      Oh, and while speaking of non-audiophile reactions, My younger sister told me I was "ridiculous" for wanting a pair of Brainwavz M2s for Christmas. My family looked at me and said "You just bought new headphones!" and I told them...
My one friend borrowed my Sennheiser cans one time and listened to Rush's "Tom Sawyer" and just started dancing around. (She's used to cheap in-ear buds and iPod headphones). While listening she would look from left to right as if she was looking for where the sound was coming from.  Then when she was done she handed them back and said "The sound was like ALL AROUND me! Those are cool!"   I was just happy that she didn't think I was crazy for making such a fuss about...
Wow, Thank you for that! I'm basically narrowing in on the M1 or R02/R03 now. It's basically down to balanced or more bass.   
In terms of clarity, which of the bunch would you recommend?  I honestly wouldn't mind a bit of a punchy (almost boomy) bass with my IEM's considering I listen to a lot of Dance music...I'm just not a bass fiend.    So basically, I would like a mostly balanced sound with a small emphasis on bass, good overall clarity, and a nice soundstage. What would you recommend to satisfy those needs?  I don't mind if it's a bit warm either.      I trust your opinions...
Thanks for that!   I actually had the iM-590 on my list but for some reason ruled it out because I've heard some say that it's more treble than they prefer. I prefer balanced, but I also appreciate bass, so I was worried I'd be disappointed with too much treble. So I assume I'm wrong about the thinking of them as not balanced? I would also like to have a set of IEMs that are mainly a metal housing because of the durability so the iM-590 does fit that requirement...
So I've been researching for the past few months on what pair of In-Ear headphones I should purchase and I've narrowed my selection down to a few that I've seen recommended here on Head-Fi. My last purchase I made was a set of Sennheiser HD428's and I couldn't be happier with my purchase...but I miss having my in-ear headphones for on-the-go....so I've turned back to here to look.     The only in-ear headphones I've owned are some Koss KE29 IEMs and When I got them a...
