Got M5 w/ Mic today. Wow, they suck.... relegated to sweaty gym headphones, I suppose. I can't even justify the $20 price.
Reference: Shure 215, UE TripleFi, Senn HD600, Audio Tehnica ATH700.
the m5 have a pretty good rep for sound once burned, in, you may have gotten a defective set of they really sound that horrible though..
Burned them in for 10 hours. IEMs should not need much burn in, there is little flex to achieve. I think people just hype them too much. I should have looked at Head-Fi reviews before committing to this, they're generally average.
pop on head-fi or mp4nation forums and see if anybody wants to trade you, you may find somebody willing to trade something more suited to your needs, hell, ask somebody here whos unhappy they got jives to trade you....as teh jives are likely better sound sig for your desires then the m5.
I just got a pair of s1 as well as jives, and they sound of similar quality to my vsd1s by vsonic
