Just be the better man and over-look the negative comments directed at you. Sure they shouldn't be to begin with but it doesn't give you the excuse to attack them back.

It also seems a shame you need a 17 year old to point this out to you.

 

My personal opinion on the state of this thread is a Mod should come here, delete all the useless comments and warn the ones having a personal flame war.

I'd hope we're mature enough to be able to continue this thread as it was intended to be, a disscusion/impressions/review thread. Not a war ground.

 

Admirable sentiment from one so young. I have also reported your post to the administrator.

^ You're right of course. I'll refrain from drawing the moth to the flame. Let's get this thread back on topic. So, has anyone here heard the SM3? Is it any good?

No I haven't.  Why this thread continues despite this fact is beyond me.

Yeah I haven't either. I'm currently seriously considering buying some though... currently with 15% off I could get them sent to Australia for $360 AUD which is quite a lot but arguably worth it.

That's why I keep lurking here. My problem is debating whether to save for some good speakers for home use (which I really need but will be a crappy adventure to get some here in Aus), to sell my HD 25 -1s and put that money towards some SM3s, buy the SM3s outright or mope around for some time and not get anything at all.

I had the same thing happen to my ES3X 'clear' cable, except that it happened within 2 weeks after getting them! At first I was very disappointed, as you can imagine, specially after it happened so quickly. Well, after 14 months the cable is now completely blueish/ greenish, but guess what, the new colour happens to match the colour of the shells (called 'Ice Blue') and now it looks as if that was the intended cable colour in the first place. As for the sound, absolutely no changes there. Cable remains strong though not as flexible as when new but also remains a better quality cable than the old stock UM3X cable.

Irony indeed.

Day 2 with the Sensorcom dual flange tips and I'm confident enough to say these are the best tips I have tried so far. Cannot fault the fit (just have to trim the stalk a little), seal or sound quality whatsoever.  Perfect all round. Plus they look cool with their whiteness against the black housing of the SM3s.  None more Star Wars!

 

For those of you in UK, you can get them here http://www.sensorcom.com/product.asp?P_ID=1142&PT_ID=348

Who's offering 15% off?

I got it down to 299USD all up, just getting an invoice done up tonight for PayPal :)

This thread is growing so fast, yet nothing much informative is added. I think I'll leave for a while to enjoy my SM3. I'm sure you won't miss me.

post #2817 of 2831

Thats less than £210 - a bargain considering they're £300 here.

SoundEarphones.com if you use the coupon "Site15". A lot of people have jumped on the opportunity.

^ Thanks Hero Kid.

I just emailed SoudEarphones to try and get their cheapest price shipped to Aus. Depending on what they can give me I think I might just have to order some :D
