Yup, I've seen some of these fakes with my own eyes.  Hm...well, it's rather easy to tell if it's fake or not, it'd just be a huge hassle to file a dispute and get them refunded.


Anyway, thanks, I'll see if I can find this seller!

Just got my M1s, sweeeeetness, they have plenty of Bass even if people call them bass light. Exactly what i was looking for as my M9s had a little too much bass etysmile.gif Cable is a huge bonus, clip and comply tips.

I ordered the Future Sonics AtrioX just a while ago. I'll have it by Saturday at the latest and I put a Square Trade 3-Year Warranty on it too.

are the ue500 really as hard to drive as people are saying? as i have ipod nano. they have normal specs so i dont see why they would be

 

Driver type: DiaphragmFrequency response: 20 Hz – 20 kHzImpedance: 16 ohms, 1 kHzSensitivity: 105 dB SPL/mW, 1 kHz 

how about the strain reliefs and overall build quality of them? bad decent good?

 

 

becuase the build quality on the backbeat pro are great. the added a L plug and put a small cloth cord covered in plastic that looks like it could go through hell. also they drilled ports to ?add soundstage? would you consider the superfi4 balanced?

 

might have to buy both lol


Since you've bought the UE500, why not just try it for yourself instead of asking countless questions?

The M1 ships with Comply tips now? News to me, but definitely makes it a better value if the rest of the accessory pack is intact.

Seems the Xears XE200PRO are sold out, I was looking for a reasonably priced IEM for a friend who was looking for a good bang for the buck IEM.

The M1 were my first IEM I bought after reading this thread some time and IEMs ago. I still like them. Mine did not ship with comply and I never tested them with Comply. I like the MEElec balanced bi-flanges best with M1. I shall test them with Comply.

Bass got better with the balanced bi-flanges compared to the standard bi-flanges.

Thanks for the excellent input Niyologist and Joker...gave me a couple things to think about.

 

Joker - thanks for pointing me in the direction of the M31.  I have a list of bassy IEM's (Soundmagic E10, CX 300 II) I'm hoping will go on sale for Black Friday which might bring it to around the $20 I'm looking to spend.

 

Nyiologist - you mentioned getting an extending warranty which would bring the price up a bit.  Actually I wouldn't mind paying more than $20 but only if I could get a lifetime warranty type deal.  This led me to looking at the Koss KDX300.  Ever tried them?  On Amazon they go for about $50.

 

And if anyone is in the market for the M6, Newegg.com has them on sale today for $14.99 (free shipping) with Coupon Code:  EMCJKJF49.

 

EDIT:  With Meelectronics, has anyone ever had their IEM's replaced under warranty....good/bad experience?

      I had one warranty replacement with my pre-order SP51 (when it first came out). Although while the earphones were defective, the customer service was outstanding and I got a new SP51 w/a new M31.

Joker,

 

In the end I decided to go for the Brainwavz ProAlpha, but I have just one last question. You where spot on in your

review of the Xears Resonance when you said that it doesn't maintain it's composure when things gets busy.

Can the ProAlpha's handle busy tracks, without "distorting" (not sure if this is the right word what happens with

the Resonance) the song? Since I already have the Resonance I wouldn't want a new IEM with the same problem.

Thanks in advance.

 Good choice buddy.  Please let me know what you think when you have had time to review.  The Alpha's are fast, they have no problem with busy tracks in my experience anyway.  Would be interesting to hear your thoughts again the XSR, we may be the only people with both on here.

Ended up going the M9 route after working out with the Ink'd today.  The bass seemed 1 dimensional with the Ink'd and it became somewhat boring to listen to for more than 45 minutes or so.  The M9 with the 3 Year Warranty worked out to $26.99 so that's cool.  Unfortunately Newegg didn't have extended warranty on the M6's or I would've done that.  But I think I'll be happy with the M9's until some sales come around.

 

Thanks again Joker and Niyologist....I'm sure I'll be back around closer to Black Friday and once I've gone through more of the reviews posted :)

Well I finally picked up a pair of SoundMagic E10's and my jaw is on the floor.  How in the hell are these only $35?  They are better than any phone at that price has a right to be; and this is first thing out of the box, insert into ears, jaw smacks floor.  Leagues better than my old PL30's.  Very fun and clear sounding with just the right bass punch for my tastes.  Well done SoundMagic.

Well the Alpha doesn't quite have as much clarity as the Resonance to start with but I don't remember it breaking down on busy tracks. The ViSang/Brainwavz generally maintains resolution very well.

would you consider the superfi4 balanced and did you like them?


SF4 is reasonably balanced but emphasizes mids/bass over treble and isn't all that smooth at the top. It also rolls off on either end. From listening to it I'm convinced that it uses a Knowles SR transducer which is a very popular driver among budget BAs but the Soundmagic PL50 and MEElec A151, which use the same driver, are on the whole tuned better to my ears. I also prefer all of the other BA-based UEs, including the SuperFi3, to the SuperFi4.

Yes, welcome to the club. The E10 is not the most proficient thing out there but it is just so fantastically fun for the $35 with way better clarity and space than I'd expect from something that bassy at that price.
