The MH1C has more impact but the e-Q5's bass is better texture and detailed.  With a good amp or even EQ'ed the bass on the e-Q5 can have a good amount of impact and depth, the moving armature they use gives the bass good dynamics unlike most regular armatures.  I sold mine awhile back to fund other IEM's I wanted to try but I'm going to buy another pair sometime because they are very good with EDM.

 

The SM3 V2 is still the best sounding IEM I've heard for EDM or any kind of music really but they excel with EDM.  The e-Q5 and TF10 would be good alternatives to the SM3 if they're to expensive.

i think i might just go with the eq5,but how's the build quality? i'm a bit concerned as there's no strain relief :$ btw,are they really big? i have rather small ears (size medium tips on mh1c)

Oh the build quality is top notch on the e-Q5, its built like a tank.  The housing is aluminium and the cable is very strong, don't worry there's no strain relief because its a very good cable.  I think the e-Q5 is one of the best built IEM's I've had.

 

Size wise you'll be fine, on the MH1C I used the medium tips also and the same for the e-Q5 so you wont have any issues as far as fit goes.

 

Its a good choice for EDM over all with good bass, detailed mids and highs and the above average soundstage, also they're very transparent.

I am looking for another IEM, and just by comparing reviews, the Rockit Sounds R-50 was the most recommended.

 

Now I also listen mostly to electronic music, and wonder if any owner of the rockit could tell me how do they sound for house/trance/dubstep?
