Im intersted which of these are more durable with better cabling? Can someone check who owns SM3 where they're built?

I have the SM3 right now and I don't think it's worse in build quality compared to the UM3x at all. The clear plastic housing is more transparent than the UM3x and makes it look better built to me. My only gripe with them is also the chin slider being too high up the cable.post #5 of 123/20/11 at 11:58amThread Starterpost #6 of 123/26/11 at 7:15pmpost #7 of 123/26/11 at 7:58pmpost #8 of 123/26/11 at 9:32pmpost #9 of 123/26/11 at 9:34pmpost #10 of 123/26/11 at 9:35pm
I have the SM3s now, and honestly the build quality is fantastic. Sure, the slider may be too far up but it's perfect for me. But yes, the cables, they tend to untwist themselves, as with the Westones.post #11 of 123/26/11 at 10:14pmReturn HomeBack to Forum: Portable Headphones, Earphones and In-Ear Monitors
