I got my ATH-M50 a week ago, upgraded from 20 € Phillips IEM. I love them, but i would rather like something more portable for the bus drive, so I was thinking on switching back to IEM or get a pair besides the M50. The ATH-M50 also drain my Galaxy S i9000 way too fast.
I don't want to miss the High quality of the M50, but i think I prefer the sound(stage) of IEM over Headphones. Important for me is, that they have a good isolation, because i will mainly listen to them in the bus. Also they should not be too analytic/sharp(RE0?) since i just wanna enjoy my music on the go. My favorite is the M3 atm, because I heard they sound really enjoyable and i LOVE the design. Also I get them easily in EU. If the other IEM's outperform the M3 by far I would rather take them though. (I listen to all kinds of music)
I thought about getting one of these:
| Brainwavz M3 | Brainwavz M2 | Head-Direct RE0 | Sunrise SW-Xcape |
Now i got two Questions:
1. Are these IEM's enough quality wise to actually replace the ATH-M50? In this case i would sell them and buy 2 IEM's or a open headphone and one IEM.
2. Which IEM's should I take for unamped Galaxy S i9000?
Thank you in advance :)
