MP4Nation's newest budget in-ears are called the M1s. These in-ears sell for $39.50 online. Compared to other in-ears these feature a rugged cable that even performs well microphonics wise. Surprisingly enough the M1 features a full bundle with seven pairs of tips and a carrying case.

One thing i still don't get... why do they put the frequency 20-20000mhz when the ear gets only these kind of vibrations. Anyway, if they are earphones, than the values must be in that range, in order for this item to be called "earphone". Otherwise we cannot hear a thing. Thx!

These look to be a great set of IEs for work. I currently have a set of RE2s, which are going to need a backup soon. These look to be more durable. Would you say that they are on par with sound quality?

M1 is very" bassy compared to RE2
the supposed upgrade from RE2 is RE0 or RE-ZERO

sure the M1 is durable, but the SQ is lower than the RE2
