Maximo iM-590 iMetal (Platinum White)

 

Anyone who has owned an iPod or other MP3 player knows the discomfort that can be caused by stock earbuds. In fact, fit is one of the chief reasons to replace those 'buds with something more worthy of your ears. In the realm of comfort, we've come...

The Maximo iMetal iM-590 earphones offer a stylish, chromelike finish; a comfortable fit; and a handy cable extender. The earphones are relatively inexpensive, and the package includes a hard-shell case with a cable manager.

Sound from the Maximo iMetal iM-590 earphones leans heavily toward the low end, which tends to be mushy and can give music a muffled quality.

The Maximo iMetal iM-590 earphones offer a super comfortable fit and plenty of features for the money; although the sound quality is not the best, this set is a good step up from stock earbuds.

Best budget earphones

 

Among budget earphones, reviewers point to the Maximo iMetal iM-590 as a good blend of quality and value. Though some feel that the competing Ultimate Ears Metro-Fi 170 earphones (*Est. $50) have better fidelity, critics like the warm, balanced sound...

Balanced sound, good noise isolation and fit, stylish, plenty of accessories

Noticeable cable thump, not the best sound quality, burn-in period needed

Review: Maximo iMetal iM-590 Enhanced Definition Isolation Earphones

 

Like many of the earphones that have been released since V-Moda debuted the original Vibe, iMetal iM-590 uses a combination of aluminum bodied earpieces and silicone rubber tips to provide sturdy but comfortable housings that fit snugly in the ear....

There's only one small thing worth noting about the iM-590's audio. Unlike many earphone companies-some of which have argued against the efficacy of this practice-Maximo includes a notice in the package that recommends an 8-10 hour burn-in period...

"Product failed; customer service DOES NOT EXIST"

 

Don't buy anything from this sham company.

Physical headphones actually exist in the universe.

Physical customer service department at Maximo does not exist in the universe.

"Sounds decent but the build quality is terrible."

 

The build quality is terrible. The one earbud stopped working after not too much use. This is apparently quite common. Check the reviews on Amazon

Great sound

Comfort. Bass response. Movies and video games sound great

Not good for listening to music. Roped cord a huge mistake on isolation headphones because it rubs on clothes causing unpleasant "grating" sound

"Bitter Sweet"

 

I've had these for a while. While they are the most comfortable earbuds I've ever owned there are serious flaws. I wonder if the creators actually wore these for a while before putting them on the market.

"Great sounding budget IEM with clear, open sound."

 

This IEM has a great open clear sound that reminds me of the Grado headphone line. Very nice midrange, highs, lows but very balanced throughout-even frequency response. Really top quality sound. I do live to 2 track classical recordings and these...
