Awesome! I'm sure it will be one heck of an IEM. Is this going to be better than the ES2? That was going to be my next move, but maybe not anymore.

Congrats!!! Any sense of pricing? Any promotional pics?

I'm sure this is a very early announcement because I don't see anything about it on your website yet, so if it's too soon to say, then just tell me that I'll need to wait for more info, and I'll patiently do so...

Schweeet!!!

Where's that "THIS THREAD IS USELESS WITHOUT PICS" emoticon??

Looks like the future of IEM's are truely in triple driver monitors. Now if only Etymotic would bring something to the table...

Are these going to be a similar size to the UM2's? Also, how do these compare with your customs? Is the sound very close? I'm a big fan of your UM2's. I'm getting the best sleep in 6 years since buying them. However, if I could get a bit better sonics, then why not?!?! If the UM2/3 fit more flush to the ear than the custom models, then I may well have to go for your new 3's!

its a triple driver.. it cant be smaller than the current UM2?? Not?

if its smaller, it will definitely be pricey though.. imagine squeezing all the goodies into the IEM smaller than the regular UM2.. i cant imagine.. lols

Not sure if it would be smaller...but maybe the same size? or marginally bigger? If I can lay on my side, I'm in, else, I'm not- I would rather invest in a custom.
