I'll start by saying hey, seems to be a lot of knowledge floating around this board. I'm fairly new to the headphone scene, best set of phones I've ever owned up until a couple weeks ago were a set of $20 skullcandy's. I started using them more and more lately and decided it was time to upgrade to a more comfortable and better performing set. Like i said, ive never really been into the headphones, besides the occasional road trip and flights I've never really had much use for them. That's not to say I'm not a huge music fan, I definitely am. My car is completely outfitted with aftermarket as well as a fairly decent home theater set up. (I actually found this place from blu-ray.com) so after some very light research I jumped on the first decent set I found, CX300 II's from best buy. There's my intro now onto the real question.
The 300's were obviously a huge jump from what I was accustomed but after a little more research I felt like I had jumped the gun. I looked around a little more and decided I would return them and order the iM-590's, while reading up on them the M2's came into question. From all my reading and comparison it seems like they have a slight edge over the 590's. Problem is they're about a month out from shipping right now. Does anyone have experience with both that could tell me if they're worth the wait or will the 590's be just as good? Most of what I listen to is bottom heavy such as rap and R&B or pretty laid back genres like Jack Johnson and such.
Both of these IEM's are similar in style and build it seems. It looks like it all comes down to SQ. Sorry for the lengthy post, any insight would be much appreciated!
