Maximo iMetal IM-590 Earphones - Page 3

post #31 of 89
I'm pretty sure that by "three $79 offerings" jant meant the S4, RE0, and the upcoming iM-790.

The iM-590 is on a lower price tier and is not in question here, but while we're on the subject I would probably pick the S4 last as well. I hate to turn this into a circlejerk but anyone who's read my review knows what my issues with the S4 are.

(mc5, not RE0)

Am I allowed to say that the iM-790 s sound pretty damned fantastic. Andrew has nailed the sound signature with this one. I have owned the 2 earlier models and loved using them but have always tweaked the sound with a bit of eq to suite my particular tastes. The iM-790 are very smooth, the mids just melt away and have a very good bass extention without sounding muddy.

BRAVO Maximo ..dB

couldn't resist posting the image of a happy man

Curious, are you referring to the 590 and the 490? And where did you get your 790s? They aren't listed on the Maximo site as far as I can see.

Edit: Understand they were on display at CES and some folks heard them there. Clears up that mystery.

I just had to RMA my IM-590s; the right-hand driver became extremely quiet yesterday compared to the right. The lifetime warranty sure does seem awesome at this point, although I have only just submitted the form and I'll be mailing the earphones out tomorrow.

Hopefully there is no reason for concern, the CSR indicated that I probably just received a faulty set.

590 in Europe?

Where can I get the 590 at a good price in Europe?

My Crossroads Mylar X3 appear to be going bad (cable fracture) and I'd like something with a detailed, bright sound and good isolation. The 590's apparent build quality is also interesting...

Is maxwho.com a good reseller for the Maximo iMetal iM590? I don't know the shop, so it might be fake, but I don't think it is. Anyone has experience?

A couple of days ago I received my pair of 590's and have given them a bit of a going over - sound really does improve after some work.

I have not been able to get any bass with any of the stock tips - the large is the most comfortable but bass is severely lacking.... the only way I have been able to get bass is by hacking up some disposable noise protection plugs that I had in the garage as per another thread. This sounds a lot better but there is not much stem to fit the tips to so I am not totally convinced on practicality just yet...

Aside from the Sony Hybrids mentioned, are there any other suggestions for tips ? I am after some bass and isolation..


cheers

FYI-it took a really long time for the 590's to show bass, and once I heard it, it began to improve exponentially. I had to have a few weeks worth of patience, but yes it will improve even more .

how much time did you burn in? the IEM guide says that 50 hours is good.
