an IEM alternative to the ATH-M50s

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I love the sound signature of the ATH-m50s, the powerful bass, the highs, and pretty much everything about them, except for maybe the soundstage, comfort factor (heat, pressure on my noggin) and the bulkiness of it all. Therefore, I'm looking for a pair of IEMs or earbuds around the $100-200 range and features everything positive about the m50s, I mainly listen to rock, metal, hip hop/rap and a bit of electronic

 

thanks!

Get some Brainwavz M1's for $30-$50.  For $150 you can do the Radius DDM next.  If you have $250-$320 the MD's are the closest IEM I have heard to the M50.  Each upgrade gets you less bang per buck though, keep that in mind.  I recommend starting at the M1s.  No harm, no foul, great sound.  If you are the type to EQ the M1 will pretty much do whatever you want.
