we all wanted a very good and nice In Ear Monitors or Ear buds, but we have to admit that we all have different opinions, different hearing talents, in this thread you can post all your opinions and suggestions and reviews regarding this IEMs that is available in the market, please respect other opinions as we all have different hearing techniques,,,

I've heard 3 out of the 5 IEMs you've mentioned, and I *very much* prefer the Brainwavz M2 amongst that list.  The M1's were very well-rounded, but not at all exciting (in my opinion).  The PL-50's were more exciting, but had a mid-high hump that eventually drove me insane.  I had to sell them off.  The M2's are quite well-rounded, but with a low-end excitement that makes them fun to listen to. 

 

The verdict is still out on the build quality of the M2's -- I've had issues with two pairs so far, though both at the hands of my 14-year-old son -- but MP4Nation is so far very good about their warranty.  All in all, they don't have a reputation for being poorly built, so it may be nothing.

 

I'd say go with the M2's.

yes your kinda correct on your opinion, i have the brainwavs M1 and they are good sounding but lack the high and mids that the PL-50 does, i just recieved my PL-50s and still on the burn in trial, what i've noticed is that you need some time to burn this babies up before you get the actual sound as they are thiny at first, yes your right that mids and highs are crystal clear with PL-50s but some what there is a gap, because only the lows are quite noticeable, the thickness of snares and tom toms are quite thin, maybe i need sometime to burn them all up, because it requires 50hrs of total burn in, and i just put 30+ hours on them, hope they will improve sometime, the M2s was quite well rounded, not quite clear highs, but good thick mids and good clear bass, haven't tried the Mee M6 though,, and the BA philips she-9850.

The Brainwavz M2 is an amazing IEM for the price ( regularly found on amazon for $60 ).  With a set of Comply T-400 tips they are tremendously comfortable and sound great.

 

I would not hesitate to purchase these.  I have even thought about buying another pair as backup they sound so good.

the M2-preorder is $5 more then the M1. I have the M1, M2 and M6, and the M2 is slightly better then the M1. For their price i would go for the M2.

So you'd rate the M2 as the *best* of these four, or the worst?  I'm not sure which way to read your diagram....

I agree if he is debating between the M1 and M2.. I have the M1, M2 and the M6 and out of the bunch the M2 is better than the others.. To me I like the M2 slightly more than the M1 but for only $5 more I'd get the M2.. As for the M6, I've never really liked them very much and IMO both the M1 and M2 sound way better.. I've never heard the PL50 but if they are anything like my first ever BA IEM the Meelec A151 then they would be very nice..

Man, everyone likes the M2, huh? I personally don't want any more bass than the M1.

If you're in the US, mp4nationusa.com has the M2s in stock for $52 right now.

no, the reverse.  http://www.mathsisfun.com/equal-less-greater.html

 

not that ima ctualy saying the m2 is the "worst"  just that i know what i like and "my" choice would be the creamy buttery goodness that in the PL-50.  the M2 for me would be too bassy for all the time.

hhmmm,, now i understand the diagram lols,, im my opinion i think,,,     M2- PL-50 -she9850- M1- M6 but i have to agree that M2 was too much bassy at some times, where the PL-50 has the advantage because the lack of bass can be tweaked by the equalizers and after that it will give you a nice clean and controlled bass without loosing a clear mids and highs,, ^^
