OK, I tried the smallest tips, and unless I am supposed to listen to the FX700 without a seal and almost no bass, it doesn't work for me. Regardless, the space is still not as 3D, nor as wide, nor as realistic sounding. Not saying the FX700 is bad (as I have repeatedly stated) and many on here may prefer the non accurate 'fun' sound of the FX700 (although the SM3 is fun when the song is). Restating...the SM3 has the most true to life, accurate music presentation of any IEM I have ever heard! But alas, this is the SM3 thread, not the FX700 thread, nor the FX700 vs. SM3 thread. If you would like to continue this, please post your thoughts/questions in the FX700 thread or a new thread, thank you :)
Wow, such conditions for posting in your thread, joe. So you don't think it's helpful for other potential SM3 buyers to know how they relate to other earphones, especially as the JVC is in your top tier list? You've made some helpful comparisons yourself, surely the more the better.
