post #16 of 55
I currently live in france (im french), send me the money ill order it for you and ship it for less than 50euros... i accept paypal
Oh yeah i can be trusted but i just might open the box to listen a little bit to these high end crackphones that i wont be able to afford until probably 2 or 3 years. ANd i have dirty, waxy ears... Joking but if there is a way to make it safe and guaranteed for the buyer i guess i could do it

That design reminds me of the Chinese auto manufacturers that just "borrow" design ideas from other places.

Like the ES logo on those headphones. Were they using that before Sleek Audio created their logo?:



And that web page looks like a take off on an Armin Van Buuren album cover:



Not saying that's bad or good. I'm interested to see how they'll be received here.

Why is the price so high? I can get UM3X for $200 less. It's also triple-driver, it's also 3 way...

Why do these dynamic driver IEMs with bad fit and bad isolation cost over $2000?

An d they should upgrade their 4 years or something flagship EM3-pro.
I have owned the EM3-pro's for a few days and I also own the JH13pro's. All I can say is that the Earsonics are beating the JH's in all aspects! There is a sense of air, space that is unbelievable for something this size, bass is more precise, really! these are the most amazing customs I have heard, period, and they arent fully burned! I will be writing a review after I spend some weeks with them and have the time to compare to my others.

Let the hype begin!

Not to mention a universal fit besting one of the best customs. I'm not saying it's impossible, but rather unlikely then again I haven't heard either so who am I to say?

My IE8 are besting my UE11 in many ways... custom IEMs don't necessarily have to be the be-all-end-all in sound quality, but they certainly give a better fit and isolation.

I personally own the SM2 (the two drivers version), the Westone 3 and the IE8.

Earsonics, like shure, has a "special sound", a sound no other brand produces, and their products seem to be quite consistent over the line-up, so I guess I can already talk a little about what can be expected from the SM3.

The best word to describe the SM2 would be "liquid". Everything seems to flow naturally, effortlessly. They're on the warm side of the IEM chessboard, but NOT Shure-like warm : the mids don't walk over the rest. The highs are neither aggressive nor recessed, yet sparkle nicely. The bass quality can go from muddy (poor source) to tight and controlled (good source). Voices are suave, slightly forward (less than Shure), supported, coherent (listening to Bjork's medulla is a bliss in comparison to the V-shaped IE8 and W3). Soundstage is nice (not up to IE8 standards though). instrument separation isn't outstanding, but neither are the IE8 and W3. I bet that the UM3x are still superior in this regard. Overall they're very nice with most kinds of music except those requiring a very fast attack : complex and layered rock tracks can become a little muddy because they lack "speed" : the attack of a guitar cord tends to be on the soft side in comparison to a W3 or an IE8.

It is very likely that the SM3 will keep almost the same frequency response curve (or vary to a small and undramatic extent). I personally hope that they will improve though on instrument separation, clarity, details, soundstage and speed.

Hey dude what you should do is open a new thread and share you experience with the EM3 and comparison to the JH13!

The first time I encounter a 'beating the JH's in all aspects!'
