Woot.com has the Maximo iM-490 as their daily deal thing right now. I have no idea how good they are. I just thought I would let you all know.



Woot : One Day, One Deal (SM)
post #2 of 12
I was just about to post this. Thanks!

I bought mine already thinking for $12.99 (+$5 shipping), what the heck?

Here's a thread with positive (although mixed) impressions: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f4/max...-390-a-286143/

Thinking out loud: This Cheap-Fi streak is starting to get quite expensive. In the last month I purchased a Denon C351, two pairs of Sennhieser MX760s, and now this Maximo. When will it end?

Best 12.99 you will ever spend!

I bought six! (and it is 5 dollar shipping, weather you buy 1-2 or three!) Great for gifts or to introduce someone to a higher quality IEM! I gave 6 for Christmas last year, to friends and family.

They seem to be a newer style than the ones I purchased from Woot last year.

My primary IEM is my WestOne 3, and the more I listen to my WestOne 3's, the more amazed I am on the sound of these very inexpensive Maximo's.

The ones on WOOT today are the iM-490, the others i have purchased were the iM-490s

Does anyone know of any Foam tips that would fit on these?

How do people like them?

They have good mids and bass for the price, but have very limited treble extension. I sold them for $14 shipped.

They're incredibly muffled -- hated 'em, sorry.

I had a pair and felt that they seriously improved after breaking them in.  They opened up and sounded less brittle.  Great for the $!

just got a pair from closeout woot or whatever you call it for $15 shipped and right out of the box they are day and night above cx300 ep630 and zune premium. I will let these break in and give em another listen....so far very well worth what I paid for them. I also like the accessories that are included.

better to buy jvc marshmallows on ebay for 5-8$ than get these :[

Haven't heard the marshmellows but comparing them with my yuin pk3 they are a little brighter but all else...bass...mids are equal. For the price they are a great set of buds to toss into a laptop bag for cheap quick listens for music or movies. Listening to them right now after burning with white noise for about 6 hours. Listening to Genisis Foxtrot on my 1st gen 30gig zune and a total bithead amp and am very impressed from the price point! In reference to the "brighter" comment I don't mean harsh...a little more in your face compared to the yuin senn type sound...almost like a jvc type bright.
