Default Maximo iM-590+mic=iP-HS5?

My local frys had the Maximo iP-HS5 sitting over in the cell phone section. I have been dying to try the iM-590 but really needed a set with a mic before I could justify another IEM. When I saw these I ahd to do some research. The pics look identical except for the in line mic...

the specs are the same too...

iM-590:
  • Earphone drivers: 9mm neodymium
  • Frequency response: 12Hz-22KHz
  • Sensitivity (1KHz, 0.1V): >100dB
  • Maximum SPL output: >120dB
iP-HS5:
  • Earphone drivers: 9mm neodymium
  • Frequency response: 12Hz-22KHz
  • Sensitivity (1KHz, 0.1V): >100dB
  • Maximum SPL output: >120dB
  • Microphone Sensitivity: 44dB +/-3 dB@1KHz
  • Microphone Frequency response: 20Hz-16KHz
  • Microphone impedance: 2.2K Ohm

So, is this the same set but with a mic added on? if so, I am in like Flynn.

Yep, same thing but have mic/remote for smartphones. There is also the iM-595 which includes volume controls for iPod/iPhone. But they are all the same thing soundwise.
