Replacement for Meelec M9?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I want an IEM that's not so harshly V-shaped like the M9, since I realized that harsh V-shaped earphones are quickly fatiguing and hurts my ears. I'd still like some bass since I listen to Hip-Hop and Electronic, but not as boomy as the M9. Are there any good earphones that are less V-shaped in the same price range?

In the same price range maybe the soundmagic pl21, it's the only other half decent phone i've heard in that range though. For slightly more consider something from Visang/Vsonic/Brainwavz, I owned the r02 from visang and the r02proii from vsonic and they're both pretty damn good.

Yeah, I think I'm gonna go for a higher range, I'm looking at Brainwavz M2.

I haven't heard that one, I highly doubt it's anything other than a great choice though. Enjoy them. etysmile.gif

Hi,

 

In a few short weeks I had the M9 and than the M2.

Both are highly regarded on head-fi. But I must say that i didnt really like the M9. The M2 was much enjoyable soundwise for me.

but of course the M2 was nearly triple the price compared with the M9.

 

Ps what kind of earbuds are u using with your M9s? The single flange worked much better than the dual flange for me. making it all less harsh.

The smallest single flange. These aren't comfortable to me. They give me little headaches when I put them in, and the bi-flanges just don't fit. Maybe it's time for cans? biggrin.gifQuote:

Does the ProAlpha have more bass than M9?

So I will be getting ProAlphas for $39.50 at MP4nation.net, too bad MP4nationUSA doesn't ship to Canada, they had a free Fiio E5 deal at the same price.

Just last week they were 22.50 at mp4nation with a 5% off coupon so they costed me like 21 dollars. Butif that's what you want..

Have you tried the clarity series my MEE? Maybe that's what you need? They had a nice promo running last week for them - but still worth a look.

Got my Brainwavz ProAlpha today, sounds pretty bad right now, worse than M9, almost like Apple earbuds. I'll try burning them in. The bass and treble isn't as sharp as the M9, and the tips seem to be smaller too. Soundstage is definitely smaller than M9 (at least for now).

I'm liking the Brainwavz ProAlphas. With the m9 I had to listen to them in half volume (out of iPod touch 4) to listen to the midrange, but with these 2 or 3 bars is enough. I like the sound signature, better than M9. Only if I got the Brainwavz M2s on April Fools... :/
