A nice homecoming! Glad you're enjoying them again :)
I went over to my desk, just now... and man...
Do these babies shine!
I bought M200s over the weekend, chose them over B&W C5 mainly due to claimed higher bass output and dual drivers. Been reading through the thread and it looks like the choice was good. These are my first headphones in this price range: I've used Sennheisers, Sonys and Shures at around half this price previously - and will continue to do so at the gym since the cables break after 1-3 years of use.
I'm not too happy with the tips, though. I have medium ear canals, and the tips feel too hard, uncomfortable, and I can't get a consistent seal. I've seen several mentions of Comply tips, which are sold here (NL). Any recommendations? Do all of them fit the M200? On that topic, is there a way to get custom molds for the M200 (newbie question)?
I like the sound of the headphones, still in honeymoon period, though. Two complaints: volume is quite low from an iPod, and microphonics are really bad, worse than any in-ears I've used. I'll see if I get used to it.
Okay guys, I've been searching but can't find a thorough comparison of the M500 and HP50. I absolutely love the M500, but my curiosity of the HP50 won't let up! Some comparisons between the two would be greatly appreciated!
Where did you buy them?
Definitely not for gym or jogging. Fit is very specific and will pop out if larger movement
I use them occasionally at the gym. The ear hooks are an advantage, but you're right, it is important to have a good fit and seal or else they pop out. I've achieved that with the comply tx and tsx500 tips, the ue900 tips, and with the vmoda bliss 3.0 tips, and they stay in well. Not sure about jogging though.
The only reason I don't use them more often at the gym is because they don't isolate as well as my h200's do (I really like to block out the secondary sound at the gym).
Yer welcome! Still meaning to get back to you about how they change the sound on the h200's versus the mh1c tips...
