I don't think it was ever 289. 299 was the lowest and the price went up since. My instinct tells me to cancel my order. My head says I'll go nuts not knowing what the real story is with these things.
Dweaver. You want more treble on the Coppers or just the SM3's? I couldn't handle anymore treble on the Coppers.
Just the SM3, I wouldn't want more treble on the Copper's either. In fact I think the Copper's do cymbals darn near perfect for me :-).
BTW when I get a deep insertion the treble of the SM3 is closer to the Copper in terms of volume so I am not saying the SM3 are bad or anything. This is just the one area I would like them to be a bit louder in for me and only a bit.
Also I think you might quite like the SM3 Anaxilus, I am looking forward to your impressions.
