Maximo IM-490 on Woot for $20 shipped

i remember some ppl liked the im-390 which is pretty much the same as this im-490. i bought the black version of this maximo im-490 when it was on woot. the tips r substandard, so i recently got cx-300b from a friend. now i use the sennheiser tips on the im-490 and i like them better than the cx-300 due to the greater neutrality as opposed to the cx-300's which wound like a u-shaped EQ

anyone?? How do these compare to the JVC Marshmallows?

Im-490 is much better than the original Marshmallows. I didn't like the standard sleeves they came with, but with adapted earplug foamies they sound very good. Shockingly good for the $10 or $15 that Woot sold them for.
