That would be great, i think they are kind of hyped....

I was going to buy the Moxpad X3 but after reading your review about the MEelectronics i changed my mind...

 

The M6 are all the same?

This one ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/MEElectronics-Over-the-Ear-Sports-Fi-M6-First-gernation-Headset-Bulk-Package-/130982442462?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item1e7f2975de) have "first generation" and the others don`t, i don`t care about caring bag, box or others stuff, just need the earphones and the eartips...

 

I`ll be waiting your answer to buy the clear one, they looks so great.

:( forget about it, they don`t ship to Brazil, and the others that ship are very expensive... i think i will stay with the Moxpad for now.

 

And Joker btw, yours and ClieOS reviews are one of the most referred reviews on Brazil, keep the great job. :L3000:

    yup , one has to worry about these import charges .

For what it's worth I enjoy the Moxpad's more than the M6. If you can get the Moxpad's cheaper it's a better deal.

Then again the Piston's are much more enjoyable than the Moxpad's wink.gif

If you're going to use them for workout I'd recommend the Moxpad's though since they fit much better in the ear and isolate better. If you're just going to use them to enjoy music I'd get the Piston's.

Hope this helps.

Thx for that, it really helped.

For US$20,00 with free shipping the X3 should be a better choice, since i'll use it while i'm working to work.

I'm just worried if they will last one year...

Going to buy again :L3000:

Hello everyone, I'm looking to buy in-ear headphones. I want them to be durable, have high sound quality and a good design (simple, black or white, nothing special). My price range is: $100-$150. Do you have any suggestions? I've been looking at the Atomic Floyd's Powerjax. I know that there sound quality isn't the best but I'm no sound expert so will I be able to notice a difference? My old earbuds are Apple's Earbuds, is the sound quality better in the Powerjax?
Thank you.

+1, although if his budget is $100-$150, he may want to look at Singolo and Doppio as well.

Thank you.

 

I don't know about the Powerjax but the RHA MA750 is right in that price range, durable, and sounds quite good so you won't have to wonder if you're getting your money's worth.

In the RHA MA750 I don't line that the cable goes overear so what do think about the RHA MA600I?

It doesn't sound as good as the MA750 (bass is overwhelming) but it's still nicely built. I would probably be tempted to save a chunk of change and just get the MA350 over the MA600.

 

The RBH EP1 is another set that's nicely built with a cable-down form factor and under $150. It's got a pretty plain aesthetic, too.

Hello, this is my first post here in head-fi. I would just like to ask what in-ear  monitors would be a good upgrade from an ultimate ears 600? My budget is $100-150. I'm actually eyeing on shure se215, westone um 1 and sennheiser cx 985. I listen to a wide variety of music. I use samsung galaxy note 3 as a music player. Thank you! :)

Audio Technica IM02 or even IM50 will be a good uprade from UE600 with their fuller sound.

The reason that the RE-400 remains popular is that there's nothing else quite like it at the price point. The RE-600 is built better but there's a $250 price gap. For neutral sets around $100 you can get an Ety HF5 or a TWFK-based set like the VSonic VC1000, but these tend to be a little brighter/less warm than HiFiMan earphones. I also thought the Brainwavz R3 wasn't far behind the RE-400 in performance and it seems well-built, but I couldn't get comfortable with the design.

Hi joker,

 

So I went ahead and purchased the RE-400 and am finding that I like them so far. Their particular take on the neutral character is attractive.  Thanks much for the recommendation. 

 

That being said, I have two concerns that are making me think about the possibility of getting a second pair of IEMs to supplement the RE-400: 1.) The RE-400 have held up so far, but the build quality concerns are well-documented, and 2.) When I'm exercising at the gym (and even sometimes for regular listening when I'm in the mood), I like to have a slightly warmer sound.  But I would want something that also maintains excellent clarity through the midrange while adding some warmth.  As a counterpoint for comparison, the Vsonic GR-99 are too warm to the detriment of clarity in the midrange to my ears.

 

With that in mind, I'm thinking maybe the Fidue A63 would be a nice supplement to the RE-400's for those occasions. That way I also get to run the RE-400's less hard, which hopefully will decrease the chances of build quality issues manifesting themselves.  I wouldn't want to spend more than $75 on the second pair given that I won't be using them as often, and the Fidue's are located in that price range.  Do you think the A63's are a good choice for this purpose?
