Well, good condition MDR7550. It's truly a great iem. Although there is a Sony H line now, these have much better mids, and equal bass to H2/3 IMO. No major flaws. Just no case or original tips. It will come with medium tips. I just use IM03 now, so I see no reason keeping them. Price is $160 including pp fee and shipping. That's below $150 for the actual iem.
 
It's the pair used for my review.

hello,i also was looking for mdr 7550..but at the same time I wondered how's the sound of im-03 compared to mdr 7550 since several people I saw let go their mdr 7550 after owning the im-03.

Really? I thought I was the only one.
 
But let me do a brief comparison. IM03 sounds more warmer to me. Not that it has more bass, but it has less lower treble presence. They are both very wide sounding, and 7550 edges the IM03 in terms of bass impact. Both have great mids, but IM03 has about 16k treble extension while 7550 extends to about 14.5k. IM03 sounds bit more smooth, which is the reason why I decided to keep the IM03.

based on your experience with their sound,do you think is it worth if I buy the ath im-03 at $430usd rather than the mdr 7550 priced at $292 usd?

Where are you based at? $292 for 7550 and $430 for IM03 sounds bit pricy. If you can find a 7550 for under $250, I say go for it.
