I'm in the market, like so many others, for budget head/ear/IEMs. Based on what I've read here, I'm split between the Pk3's, pl30's, and brainwavez's proalpha and m1's. Meeelectronics m6 are also an option, but I dont like the over the ear feature, so maybe m9's instead. I'm curious to know if for a guy who listens to indie pop, rap, and folk on his smartphone, which of these (or other suggestions) is the most recommended? The pk3's seem like a favorite, but a lot of the reviews are pretty old and I'm wondering if anything has changed in the budget lanscape.
pk3 will make you a big soundstage+lot of naturallness+lot of details= they sounds like big friends like Grado sr60/80, really good with iPod 5,5/Touchs all generations.
But they are screaming around you.
