Still loving my M200 with TS-500 Complys of course.  KEF should have provided these tips from the get go.  The mic is great.  It's one of the few where all functions (volume, pause/play, next, previous, answer, hang-up, mute) works with my Blackberry.

  Bought M200  three weeks ago from Newegg, and they came with TS-500 (L, M, S).
Much warmer than my DT 990 and no harsh on high, clearer vocal.
I'm very satisfied with this product.

I loved the M200 while I had it.  Only reason I sold mine was because it just wouldn't stay in my ears.

It seems to me to understand why M200 wasn't hyped as some other Chinese brands products. It's very sensitive to source. Recently I found it amamzingly paired well with Explorer!! Really fresh experience. Great!

Haven't really realized that. I miss my M200. Warranty replacement.
 
Also, just want to bring up that KEF is British.

It's shocked me! It's unimpressive for most my sources. Before, I found it's best with neutron througy Nexus 7, amplified by NX1. Recently I used it with Explorer, Man, So much details, such a huge soundstage, very neutral, very balanced, and sound a little bit warmer than other sources (before, I think it's too cold).

To anyone who loves the KEF M200's sound signature but hates the fit / comfort, I can recommend the Radius HP-NHR21, which I had on loan from a fellow head-fier (thanks Marco!).
 
The Radius reminded me very much of the M200: tastefully boosted but not overbearing bass, bottomless low end extension, smooth, natural and slightly warm-ish mids, highly detailed treble without being sharp or sibilant, awesome soundstage. Fit is downward only, but a lot easier and comfier than with the M200. Even though I usually prefer a less bassy sound signature, I like both the KEF M200 and Radius HP-NHR21 a lot.

Nice. They look interesting, though not readily available in the US.
