2 Deal Breakers?.... Or 1 Awesome Deal?  1 Superb Headphone Making up the price of 2 Competetors!  Even More!
[size=small]Ok, I think most of you here have heard the ATH m50 and some have heard other great headphones like the CAL! or the IEM KipschS4.[/size]
[size=small]After looking up the prices of these, i found out that i can get the ATH m50 on ebay (It's not sold here in local stores) for $160, but i can throw in the CAL! + The klipsch S4 for about $120, Amazing eh?  I need to choose between buying just only the m50 or those 2 headphones, knowing i would benefit from the IEM because i go to the gym, but if theres a big diffrence between the CAL! and the m50 i can settle for the m50. heres my questions![/size]
[size=small]Is there a noticably  big of a diffrence  between the CAL and the m50? like in bass, clarity and soundstage?[/size]
[size=small]Would I enjoy songs with great beat and vocals such as (Radio active) equally on Both?[/size]
[size=small]Even tho the Klipsch being an IEM, is it anywhere close to being as good as those headphones?[/size]
[size=small]So, CAL + Klipsch or just the m50? [/size]
[size=small]Thanks for the help ![/size]
[size=small]Also! Which head phone do u think is more appealing the m50 or the CAL?[/size]

I don't know about the M50 not the CAL. I only own the S4. They are excellent IEMs.

People would harp on about the S4 and since owning them for almost a year I never understood the praise. They seemed very very normal to me not much better than cheaper IEMs or anything really. Then a couple of weeks ago I decided to put some Comply Foam tips on them. Holy Batman, they sounded amazing! So if you do decide on getting the S4, get the foam tips.
