In a way it makes sense,... well sort of since the sound of the SM3s are like a chameleon anyhow. So maybe the filters are there for the sake of consistency? That's just my uninformed guess.. biggrin.gif


That pretty much mirrors my experience. I used them without the filters for about 3 months, and I felt it added too much harshness overall. I EQed the treble down a little but it seemed like the harshness wasn't tied to a frequency, if that makes sense. When I switched back to the filters a while back I felt that it sounds better overall with them in. Smoother and more natural. They did sound more open and clear without the filters, but sort of in an artificial way. Maybe EDM sounds better without the filters, but rock and metal sounds a lot more like a real performance with them in.

Hi guys, i bought my SM3 V2 about a year ago through jaben singapore, and the shell broke off due to regular use and when i sent it for warranty through jaben singapore, apparently they forgot to note that my warranty was still in effect and now i am charged an absurd S$198 for the repair of this broken shell!!?? This is absurd!!

Welcome to the club people from earsonics dont know what shame is, this should be repaired for free is a fabric issue
post #1625 of 1666
I think they have plenty of shame, or at least their sales director seemed to when I spoke with him. What they lack is pride in their product and the ability to understand the fact that the product they are marketing as a professional grade monitor simply does not deliver what ANYONE would expect in terms of durability from a product targeted at people who will be moving around on-stage and most likely using them on the go. They either don't understand their market, or simply don't give a ****; the worse condemnation of the two would be whichever actually inspired such shoddy workmanship.

Send an email to max@earsonics.com.

He is very responsive and he pretty much changed how I perceive their customer service.

Yes I've dealt with Max, he was very curt with me. He did give me a replacement but only after some badgering. Maybe he's changing his tune, though.

Earsonics isn´t making it easy to take the leap of faith and buy the SM3/SM64... Not only would I have to order it blind, but the only shipping option to Finland is a 40 euro overnight express one. It kind of adds insult to injury as the company isn´t exactly famous for build quality or in other words making the product look and feel like something that wasn´t bought for 1/4 of the price.

That's the 2 not 3. But it's still a good IEM for the money
post #1631 of 1666

It's still a killer deal; joker gives the SM2 9.2 vs 9.1 for the UM3X and 9.4 for the SM3. That is a stellar price for them, considering the SQ; just over half the MSRP...but you will have to baby it.

I dunno - I got the SM1 V2 from Amazon just a few days ago - I thought the ultra slim - Westone type body of the IEM looked sturdy as hell. And for $99 (musicaacoustics is asking 220 Euros) the price cannot be beat. The cable is exactly the same as the standard Heir Audio cable (at least it looks like it)

 

We'll see.

post #1633 of 1666

Yeah at those prices they seem like steals. If I had cash floating around I would probably grap a set of SM2s.

While the old stuff may be a steal, the new SM64 is amazing!  I reviewed it here.

You couldn't pay me enough to endorse a $500 earphone made from such materials.
