Just because the SM3 is more expensive doesn't mean it's a bad product. The RE262 is a good earphone but tailors to a certain sound and I'm sure the SM3 tailors to a different sound. I can guarantee that many will choose the RE262 over the SM3 but at the same time many will choose the SM3 over the RE262. Preference goes a long way here :)
Then again I've been quite content with my M2 lately..
I completely agree :D, and glad to see my thread isn't as heated as Joker's lol
If you spend $300 and it makes you happy, good for you. If you spend $100 and it makes you happy, good for you. If you spend $100 or $300 and you're not happy with it, well then there might be an issue.
