Brainwavz M1 with less microphonics?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hiya - total newbie here, but I'm a little stumped: 
Yesterday I caught my Brainwavz M1s on something and ripped apart the right bud. I'll try to repair it short-term, but I'd like a new set going forward.

 

The sound on the M1s is PERFECT, but only after I have the proper fit in my ear (fully engaged/isolated) - but at this point the microphonics are THROUGH THE ROOF if I'm moving around - I wear these primarily at the gym, and over-ear doesn't help enough (and keeps falling off).

Before my enlightenment my Skullcandy FMJ's were decent enough, but the cord noise was nonexistent compared to these. 


I should also note my ears need a big fitting to seal up, and anything that stays put under a motorcycle helmet is a BIG plus.

 

Can anybody make a recommendation in the 50$ area? 

 

Thanks!

M1s over your ear.

Soundmagic PL50, absolutely no microphonic at all, and they're the most comfortable IEM I've ever used

Thanks for the input!

I just ordered a pair of TD100 II IEMs from Xears, I'll be sure to post up a review once they're here (and burned in). 
These PL50s very well might be my NEXT purchase - I like the low profile, good for sleeping in (and under a motorcycle helmet!). 

 

In the meantime I've patched my M1s back together - as I said, over the ear helps but it's not ideal. 

However on planes they'll still be my first choice for clear, soft sleepy music if I'm not wearing my big Sony MDRs.
