$38 for the PL50's is a excellent price.
link? What about vs the S2, or the Custom 1 heck even 2?

Haven't heard the C1/2 or S2.
After 100h burn in the S4's have opened up considerably and offer a impressive soundstage that the PL50's can't match, other than that it's all about preference between the two.

And as said, $38 for the PL50, is a win-win situation.

Oh man this is crazy... I've been checking Focalprice new release section every day and I've never seen them. Then when I click on the link in this forum for the Focalprice earphones, it just says item not found (not sold out or anything) - are they not shipping these to the UK or something?

Yeah, they are not showing up anymore. Maybe soundmagic had them pull them off the site once they got wind of FP selling them for so cheap, or maybe it was just a price mistake, and once they had all these emails about them, they realized it and pulled the off themselves.

Who knows.

Oh man, thanks for the info, good to know its not just me. Geez, this brings a whole new meaning to 'you snooze, you lose' - more like, 'you snooze for 5 mins, $38 earphones gone baby!'

Huh! I hope they just removed it for correcting the description. SoundMAGIC or "genuine" wasn't mentored anywhere.

I'm deciding between these, the PL30's or the Beta Brainwavz. If I would order right now, the PL30 would be my choice, because the Beta's and the PL50 aren't available yet. You can order the Beta's, but MP4 Nation isn't shipping those yet. If I would go for the best at this price, it would probably be the PL50, am I right?

well I've read quite a bit about those 3 'phones too, but as yet haven't heard any of them! I suppose we should throw the RE2s in the mix too? Anyway, out of all of them mentioned, the PL50s are the only ones that use balanced armature drivers - which of course does not as a rule make them better, but they may possess certain sonic characteristics aren't to easy get in budget dynamic drivers...

from what I read the Betas don't have a great midrange, and the PL30s are pretty coloured... maybe the PL50s might be a bit more accurate, detailed and punchy. I tend not to be a fan of budget dynamic driver bass, too bloated and messy now I'm used to the super punchy BA bass... but you know, I'm only speculating of course...

Where did you read this? I searched the whole PL30 thread (178 replies) for "colored" and "coloured" and here's what came up:
1 hit: "tips are colored gray"

I found it mentioned a couple of times, but granted that comment was a little 'off the top of my head' - also I guess my experience with lower end SoundMagics (PL11/12) I found the mids pretty coloured & also probably me just assuming budget IEMs aren't going to be 'super-neutral' - but hey, I could be wrong!

Mine has shipped out! I report how these is genuine or not but I'm pretty sure they are. Can't wait to join the club.

I wouldn't call the PL30s colored, but they definitely aren't neutral. The midrange is quite forward and the overall sound sig is very "fun" - good for rock, etc. Still use these things pretty often. Will see how pl50s compare when they get here.

Why couldn't i have found this thread yesterday ?! I had the same problem of following the link and getting nothing but "this item is no longer listed"
post #165 of 361
I am not sure if I want to get this the C1/C2 or S2.
