On earsonic facebook pages they said they were different, have you done direct comparison to those two?

The EM3 that i tried are not customs, they were the universal demo's.

I have heard the sm3 in universal form, it is not exactly similar in SQ specially the bass and the em3 sounds better for me specially on loud passages in the music.

So do you think it uses the same drivers and the better bass response comes from the better fit of the customs?

I have both and they use different drivers.  The EM3 Pro is a 2-way design with 2 massive bass drivers while the SM3 is a 3-way design with much smaller drivers.  You can read my comparison in this review.

And I found the EM3 Pro to be excellent with the 601; synergy can work wonders!

^BTW, I'm now using a rockboxed Sansa Fuze with alteration on the bass/treble settings - sounds great!!!

the sound was warm, and when i closed my eyes, yes i could easily pick out the location of the instruments, but it was pretty close to the em3's, and the presentation was not speaker like at all, which it shouldnt be anyway since it was a live, unaugmented show.

 

instead the sound wrapped around me as it bounced off the surfaces within the hall, the same way the em3's through out sound.

 

and the touch of warmth in the em3's,... i heard it during the show too. 

 

i would love to see if anyone else experienced the say thing,.... maybe i'm just going nuts.

 


Beside the accuracy can you tell about the soundstage that you hear when you using em3 on classical concert hall, I'm afraid em3 will put me sitting on those musician chair rather than on audience position which I really like.

hey man,

 

unfortunately my stock earsonics cable are damaged so i cant check the classical concert sound for you, but from what i remember, it will sound like you're in the first few rows. the way classical concerts are recorded is very different to rock and pop so you do feel like you are watching and not on stage..... but it depends on the recording. if you really want speaker like presentation, the em3's might make you feel a little too close too the performance. but thats what they're meant to do i reckon as they're designed to be used on stage by the performers.

 

but if you go to alot of concerts, and good ones in nice spaces, you'll know that what you hear is not exactly speaker L/R presentation,... and the sound bounces off the walls and wraps around you. the em3's will give you this kind of sound, like you're in the perfect spot in the audience.

 

but it does very much depend on the recording.

 

em3 + twag 2 eclipse,... so nice, so wide, and in some recordings, where the mics are out in front, you dont feel like you're sitting with the musicians at all.

 

if you have any specific recordings you'd like me to listen to let me know, and i can tell you whether it feels like i'm on stage of in the audience.

Anybody knows how many days does the "processing" status on earsonics website usually changed?
