I'd thought I'd share my moody opinion on these earphones.
There are lots of good reviews already about the design which I like very much, however I was quite appalled at the sound quality.
(Just some random info - I am a classical pianist/keyboard (15years) Djembe player (8 years) and currently studying sound engineering/orchestration.)
I usually wear my Sennheiser HD280 or AKG K141 at live recording/gigs/home and "on the go", and I wanted something lighter and less bulky.
The M6's were being reviewed by loads of people who were saying they were definitely value for money - sound quality included. I wasn't that interested in getting expensive custom UE's and also can't afford them yet, so I followed the dudes who said "buy them".
The sound of the M6's was like having the music played through a PVC tube from a megaphone, accompanied by a seriously loose low end that obstructed whatever highs had survived being squeezed through!
I tried them on multiple systems/music genres and unless I had a separate multi-band parametric EQ going, I was unable to bare them for longer than 10 seconds.
Would it be a better to get the Shure SE215 or SE315? I don't have millions to spend!
Where should I take it from here?
