Have a pair SM3 in great shape and would love to trade for a pair FX700. I´ve been having balanced amateurs IEM like forever and would like to make a switch to the other side for a change
Send me a PM if youre interested
I have the Sony X, Clip, Iphone 4, Ipad 2 and the best sounding is the X followed by the Iphone 4, Clip, Ipad 2 when paired with the SM3. And about those RMMA graphs i dont think they reflect much of real world performance just my 2 cents
I dont believe in burnin but i do believe in bad seal, bad fitting, and difficulties of finding suitable settings and tips that most users have to experience in their first week of a new purchase .... may be thats the whole mystery of it ? Even if its there are such things as burnin then i dont think pinknoise is really necessary for in-ear, its just your ears adapting to the new sound :)
Believe me you´ll get plenty of bass (if the V2 and V1 sound the same). I owned the UM2 earlier the amount of bass of the SM3 is more or less the same and most of the time perfectly right (meaning skakingly good but not bloomy). SM3 doesnt need amp else you´ll just waste your money.
