My only problem with you is you need to take an extreme position (the DBAs can't touch the SM3s), which is fair enough, but then when someone questions you on it, you then backpedal and say they are decent, even good IEMs. Which way is it? Okay, so it's your two cents, but even though I didn't care as much for the SM3 as you and others do, I didn't need to trash it, even in my opinion, by saying it could not compete with the DBAs, which I prefer. From the start, I just noted why I favored one over the other, no need to disparage anyone else's POV on the SM3s or DBAs.
You make statements, obviously over the top, then you want to disengage yourself from them when you get someone calling you on it. If anyone is over-dramatic, it's you with your statements, opinion or otherwise. I am glad your opinions are very subjective (no need to shout), which is sort of funny in itself. Acting disjointed? That's an interesting take, for sure.
Who said anything about the king of universals, anyway?
Actually, I did have you on my ignore list because your views, in my opinion, pretty much amount to a lot of babble but not much substance or value. But for some reason, I hit the "show" button. Prurient interest? Not sure. My mistake, believe me. Back to the ignore list you go.
Slaters70 what is your problem? You seem to always have a problem with me and what I type. The first three words>>> "My two cents..." That equals my opinion. You've never seen me say an IEM was great or terrible that I didn't personally own and/or hear. And I always make sure I convey it as my opinion. I have never purported to have the end all opinion and last word on IEMs. All I can go on is my feelings, and that is all that I do go on. MY OPINIONS ARE VERY SUBJECTIVE!! I have never said that rawrster, joker, LFF or even you were wrong in your opinions. So the only conclusion I can reach is that you are full drama, slaters70. And this b.s. about chastising the "guardians of the SM3," you're acting a little disjointed to me dude. I said that I didn't believe SM3 was king (before I heard it), because I didn't believe in one king in universals. My opinion. I didn't say the SM3 wasn't great as everyone was reporting.Then guess what? I got the SM3, have had it for a while now, think it's great also, but STILL DON'T SEE IT AS KING OF THE UNIVERSALS. So, I'm being negative? I'm chastising the "gaurdians of the SM3"? And there are IEM snobs here. You may just as well be one of them the way you carry on.
Look, I don't tell anyone that my word is head-fi gospel. A lot of people as me questions in public about my experiences with various IEM - since I've owned so many - and I give it. A lot of people pm me with questions. I try to answer them all, but most will tell you that I always end my opinion with>> "whatever I like or don't like, it really depends on your sound sig. preference and you have to hear these IEMs for yourself." So slaters70, quit being a drama queen, or save this confrontation for someone else. I will continue to give my opinion, and if you don't like it, please block me so that you can't read my font. You are one of the few troublemakers I see in this forum. You have some nerve trying to take me to task over MY OPINIONS. As long as I'm not being rude or bullying anyone (as you like to try to do) I have the right and will continue to state my opinion, regardless of whether it's to your liking. You might as well not type anything else to me, because I'm not changing. I don't need to change.
