I am not sure what else you want beside what I already said in those comparison. Here is just a side by side comparison taken directly from the RE2 and PL-50 rating, which you can make out by yourself. You can read the detail in both the link above.
Build Quality: PL-50 > RE2
Accessories: PL-50 > RE2
Isolation: RE2 > PL-50
Microphonics: PL-50 > RE2
Comfort: PL-50 = RE2
Soundstage: RE2 > PL-50
Sound Quality: PL-50 = RE2 (Sound signature is different, but SQ is very close (0.5 / 5) to each other. Personally, I prefer PL-50 more)
Value: PL-50 = RE2 (again, also very close)
This may seem like a stupid question, but with the earhooks - do you think these would be adequate for running?
I want to upgrade my running headphones - and was considering the Philips SHS8000 - which were recommended on this forum. I currently use Sennheiser Twist to Fit earbuds which stay in well, but don't sound very good. IEM's I've tried sound better, but don't stay in.
I realize these may be overkill, but I was thinking about spending $30 on the Philips. If the Soundmagic stay in just as well, the audio quality alone would be a good reason to spend the extra $20 to $25.
First off thanks for the reviews mark and clieos, it makes me kind of jealous...
In your review mark, you said that these might be good to sleep on. Do you really mean like sideways, ear against the pillow type? Have you tried? They don't look like the most comfortable pair of iems to sleep on.
