If sound quality is all you are after, the Cyclones are still easily the better buy. What the Meelecs do is throw great build quality and customer service/warranty support into the mix. If you crave the popular mid-bass hump the Meelecs might be the better buy, but purely sq-wise they just can't compete on accuracy, detail, balance, or soundstage with the Cyclones.

Contrary to what you may think the M9s sound different enough from the M6s that several reviewers (e.g. mark2410) couldn't believe that they share drivers. It might be the design of the acoustic chamber in the housing but the M6 sound tauter, smoother, and better balanced overall. The M9s are still an amazing buy at $20, but given the choice I will always spring for the M6.

Well, once again, the it seems as though the Cyclones are worth waiting for. Or worth the extra $$ right now. Thanks.

Did you order from Gyratech or Ebay?

Ebay. For $39.99.

Woot! eBay seller had one left in stock. Tried to buy two pairs but it wouldn't let me

Thanks to |joker| and tsarn06 for the recommendation. I don't know if I will keep them or sell them to a friend who is looking for IEMs, since I have PL-50s still on their way.

Sorry to anyone else who was trying to buy them, I didn't realize the stock was so low.

Can anyone compare the Cyclones to either the IM-590's (and/or) the ADDIEM's?
Thanks

Just to say that it looks like the 40$ shipped ebay seller have renewed his stock, it nows says "more than 10 available", and he's also selling the pr2.
I ordered my pair on january 1st and still waiting, not expecting to be delivered until the end of the month or even 1st days of feruary

They are good, but not that good.

Has anyone in this thread bought and received PR1 Pros from Gyratech?

Hehe i received these bad boys actually a few days ago but hadnt been to the post office to get them because i thought the paper was for a "bad news" kind of letter (the package came "recommended" from the ebay seller!)... Anyway it has been a very good surprise today to see a tiny little box in place of a letter demanding a payment for some stupid fine....
So, my first impressions.... : hehehe.. haha.. BWAAAHAHAHA!!! 40$ shipped from china???? Are you friggin' KIDDING me???? Im gonna post some more precise impressions later but seriously, dont expect anybody to sell these used EVER (i've seen a few WTB:cyclone pr1 pro here, sorry but you need to give up). I know of a few people who actually stocked on these and bought backup pairs and now i understand why...
Props to the man joker for the awesome tip... best IEM bang for buck EVER

You found the PR1 Pro religion. I was just considering selling my backup pair, since the Rain sound so nice. But your post has me reversing that thought. Why sell them? At that price, $45 for two pair average, makes no sense.
