I own a pair of Future Sonics EM3 phones. I love them and think their bass is a thing of beauty. I also own a pair of NuForce NE-7M phones. Their bass is nice, too, but it's not as smooth as that of the EM3 by any means.
My EM3s are getting long in the tooth (I've already repaired the left side, which came apart years ago) so I'm considering upgrading.
I bought some ER-4Ps recently and, while I loved their detail and sparkle, I found that they hurt my ears and I had some pain behind my eyes when using them, even with my Comply Tx100 foamies on them. Their build quality is also awesome and I love the two year warranty and removable cables. But I can't handle the pain and I miss my Future Sonics' bass, so I'm going to send them back to Amazon.com. The ER-4Ps are terrific but I'm coming to grips with the idea that they're not for me.
So I'm planning to get some Atrios. I know they're coming out with a new revision in the next few weeks with a new driver, so I don't expect anyone to comment on the unreleased revision (rev. 3, I believe).
Can anyone compare the sound of the current (rev. 2, I believe) Atrios with with the sound of the EM3s?
Thanks for any help!
