Earsonics SM2 DLX Dual BA IEM Review and impressions thread - Page 4

post #46 of 52

I know I am reviving a VERY old thread, but I just got the Sm2 V2 and have to say I am super impressed.  They were a little murky and undefined at first, but an overnight burn in through my RSA intruder really cleared things up.  Have to say I like these a ton more than the Westone 3 I returned to get them.  I know Earsonics build has been in question, and that these aren't spoken of much...is anyone else out there enjoying these?

I really like the SM2, but I like almost all of the Earsonics line, except for the SM1. I use the SM2, SM3 and SM64 on a regular basis. Just got the S-EM6 and SM3V2.

Yeah I love the sm64, wish I had never sold it. I have the s em6 on the way too. Jut surprised how good of an earphone the sm2 v2 is without getting nearly any chatter around here. Probably wouldn't have bought it if it wasn't for jokers review.

I love my SM2v2 too, they lack details a bit, but they've so much the sense of musicality smily_headphones1.gif like you BRCMRGN the only iem from EarSonics I dislike is the SM1, they don't share the house sound signature but they are better than Brainwavz b2 or Rockit R50, both of them are mono balanced armature too.
If you love their IEM you will fall with their CIEM ;-/

Been enjoying my pair, they make a great direct upgrade from my SE215: similae ss but more refined and detailed with a wider soundstage and more midrange emphasis. They do have noticeably greater midrange emphasis and a generally more monitor-like sound, which is no surprise considering its what they were designed for, but they share the same mids-and-bass oriented sound which I love. I only wish their bass was as deliciously tight as the SM3 and they had a bit more sparkle, but for under $200 they were a steal. Removing the filters gave them a bit more grit to the upper midrange to bring guitars a bit more to life, which I've been enjoying.

Removing their damper ??? confused_face(1).gif Why ?? It's just the sound of a BA transducer with crossover.... No tuning, no more warranty...

*shrug* The SM3s sounded better without theirs, too. Takes away some of the veil in their sound.
