The A151 and PL50 actually use the same driver but the A151 is tuned differently and I think has a more airy presentation and more bottom-end presence. There was an A151 review posted a few days ago (by DervishD I think) that compared the two. The PL50 is still hard to beat at its price and brand-name products that perform at the PL50/A151 level (i.e. Westone 1) will cost you more.
the thing is that the pl50 are free-shipping , and the a151 are $20 + for shipping (to here),
so it would be around $100 for the a151. so should i consider something else for $100 with lower shipping? or just try to get a lower shipping for the meelec? (i;ve read they have low low microphonics so maybe they are worth)
forgot to ask! does anyone has some pictures for comparig the size of pl50 and a151? i've seen that the pl50 are really small (which is a good point for me)
