Are these better for Trance, Electronica, Alternative rock etc. genres than M2?

I don't listen to much of any of this, but I've taken a bit of time to listen with both the M2 and M3:

 

With Trance and Electronica the M2 delivers a less atmospheric, more in your head sound but with that bigger bass and more emphatic treble, M2 feels more energetic, I prefer the M3 a bit, primarily for me this music needs to be more out of my head than the M2 can deliver, even more so if the bass and treble are going to kick like they do, but could imagine many would prefer the M2. It's going to depend on whether the exuberant energy that the M2 gives outweighs the greater atmospheric, ambient quality and detail of the M3. Both have relative strengths in relation to this kind of music.

 

For alt rock I think the M3 is more likely to be a preferred, since the M2 doesn't deliver the mid clarity of the M3 - the M2 can sound a bit muddy with mid oriented guitar music.

That's for you to decide, ultimately, but lecky is quite right in describing the M3 sound as "atmospheric" in comparison to the M2. If you are familiar with closed headphones, the M2s are more "closed" IMO than the M3s in any music genre. I really like the open, "almost 3D" quality of the M3s, but I also prefer my open headphones currently to my closed ones for most music.

A good question and I am happy to report that I while I have had fit issues with the earlier M2 I have no such issues with the M3 and I can wear them both straight down or over the ear (My preferred way to wear them as I get a bit of microphonics if worn straight down).

 

The housings are very light to boot so the IEMs are pretty comfortable IMO.

The lightness of them is probably part of what makes them very comfortable. No comfort or fit issues for me. The plastic from which they're made isn't very sexy, but it works well enough and there's no obvious reason to believe that they won't be strong enough to last.

My M3's fit my ears perfectly with the stock tips. I was worried about that, because by looking at the design, you could tell that they would be limited on depth insertion. No problems at all, a great fit.

That's great! I have always enjoyed reading your reviews, I seem to look for the same things you look for in an IEM, so eagerly waiting for your review. Bought M1 and PL50 reading your reviews and I wasn't disappointed at all.

has anyone been able to compare these to the Sunrise Xcape? they're both around the same price so it'd be pretty interesting how they compare.

Looking forward to it Mark. So far, everyone seems to be agreeing on what these sound like. Enjoy reading your reviews, btw.
