“Remember those essays you had to write in grade school? Well I do even if you don't. In honor of that memory, I am going to write: What does the EarSonics SM3 mean to me? Back in March I was going to order the EarSonics SM3 based off the few things I have read about them, even though it wasn't much. But then something stopped me.

“THE RATINGS: Highs: 4.5/5 Mids: 5/5 Lows: 4.5/5 (probably would be 5/5 with amping) Bass: 5/5 (swooshy style, though) Value: 5/5 Soundstaging: 5/5 This is all to say that the Earsonics SM64s are perhaps the best IEMs I have ever heard, and I was always a big IEM person. Let's be short about this: It absolutely slaughters the Shure SE530, SE535 line...” --Pepper
“http://www.earsonics.com/SM3%20engl.htm v2 page. Aside from the cable and new body, my impressions match what I had in my v1 review. http://www.head-fi.org/products/earsonics-sm3-universal-fit-iem/reviews/4422 Otherwise, these sound about the same as v1/the new ear-piece body shape is a lot more ergonomic(seems to be a bit smaller as well, but not as easy to get a good seal... At the same...” --svyr

“ First thing I have to say is that the build quality is good for the earphone body. The cable and tips are not exactly garbage, but really bad for the price. Case is ok, manual only available in French. The stock cable is very short, which makes it uncomfortable to wear. I bought another cable right away. Only two pairs of double flange silicon tips are included, same size, lot of...” --10shot9miss
