So to reiterate, I have 1/3 volume to play with from the loudest volume I listen at. So think these have room for people to go louder than I do.

good info on how these were designed from the last couple of posts. You guys have put my mind at ease regarding my volume settings on my phone.


Without getting into the math, it would take about the maximum 10mW to reach a Sound Pressure Level of 100dB with a sensitivity of 94dB assuming you have a low impedance source which is about what you are mentioning.
 
Whatever portable device you have with these headphones must have an output impedance of around 1ohm at the maximum.  Check that before you buy them as that will definitely impact the frequency response of the M200. 
 
Cheers.

I would like to try one of those UE900 or Monster MD trumpet tips in size large.
If someone is ready to sell me one pair, thanks to PM me.

Same here. No luck getting them in Asia Pacific region. Even the local Logitech branch said so.
If someone is kind enough to sell me a pair or two of the original large silicone UE 900 tips please PM me thanks

I'm starting to feel very fickle. I've moved back to the M200s from the M500 almost full time. I finally got my one ear to seal with the supplied tips but have some others on order from Meelectronics to see if I can improve on it. Might order the UE900 tips if those don't work. Not that it needs an amp but I've been listening to my iPhone 4s via the Fiio E12 with the gain set at zero and volume at 1/3 and it works for me.

M200 is much more refined than the w4 and ie-8. Ie-8 has more bass quantity but m200's bass far superior quality. M200 beats both of them.

Damn! m200 vs h200? :D

M500 has two removable cables. But one end is not standard size (I think).

For a $200 iem, I think it is fine to expect a detachable cable.

That's exactly the reason I'm passing up with this iem.  To be honest, I am rough with my iems since I travel a lot.  Thus the importance of replaceable cables.
