Earsonics sm3 V2 - Page 18

post #256 of 1150

ie2han will no doubt add it to his comparison thread when he's got his hands on it. given it seems that it's more ergonomics than sound quality, you might get a good read of it currently. If I remember correctly it went Westone 4>SM3>IE8, but I cannot be sure.

Unfortunately, that thread was closed upon my request. I won't discuss it here bcause I don't want to get off topic. With respect to the OP, anyone can PM me to discuss anything unrelated to this thread. smile.gif

 

I will do a comparison for my own ears, and I don't feel the absolute need to do a write-up of my impressions since the only things changed are the re-shell and removable cable. Sound-wise, it's one and the same, so I've been told. biggrin.gif

Slightly OT, but very interested in why you're not keeping any of the IEMs you had i2ehan, I thought the W4s were the ones? I'm under the impression that the SM3s were pretty middle of the pack for you in your review as you thought the treble was a bit veiled?

PM me my friend. I'll be glad to answer whatever questions you have for me there. smile.gif

Why is it there no SM3v2 that is clear? Or there is one? The SM2v2 has a clear version now. So it will probably be soon.

That's a good suggestion @airwax..I'm also waiting for the clear version of V2 if released. biggrin.gif

Nice review Geruvah!  Glad you enjoy those, I suppose ES were serious when they said that the sound wasn't really changed at all.

I've actually been using the ZO with the SM3 (v1) quite a bit lately, and contrary to my initial impressions, it does make a pretty decent pairing, as long as you don't go crazy (more than +4-5 levels).  At levels 0-4, it actually does sound pretty sweet.

I just put my order in for the v2's etysmile.gif.  I wonder what they would sound like with my E11, but I'll probably use them unamped.

Darn glad to hear that. Looks like my next investment is that. Would've loved a new wire but only for cosmetic reasons whereas this would actually help with sound.

Mine get here tomorrow! Can't wait. I'll post pics side by side with both the V1 and V2. I'll decide whether or not I'll keep the V2 based on seal and comfort. smile.gif

post #266 of 1150

Anybody who has the v1 and will be getting the v2?

I would really like to know how they compare :)

wow can't believe that you'll get it way earlier than me while I ordered before you! frown.gif

If you read a few pages back there are some very good comparison reviews between the V1 and V2.  However, quickly the sound I think is basically the same, but because I am getting a better seal with using the V2, the bass response is improved, but I think only because of the improved seal as opposed to better sq from the actual unit themselves.

 

Cheers,

Hello all, 

 

Thank you for all the information on the V2! 

 

I've been looking to buy new iems for a while now, and the sm3 v2 seems like a good choice. I currently have the head-direct re0, i do like them, but the bass is nowhere near where I want it to be. I should probably say that I don't use an amp,and the re0 have impedance of 64 Ω, which from my understanding, means that they would benefit from one more so than a headphone with lower impedance, such as the earsonics (34Ω). Is that true ? 

 

I listen to a lot of house/electronic music beats, classical, classic rock, and every once in while some old school rap songs that I like.. so I need something with a nice bass, but also good overall sound. I looked at the IE8 (which seemst to be very bass heavy) but I am worried about the isolation, and the overall sound.. it seems that the sm3 would be a better choice for me. I don't know what a "true bass head" really means, but I don't think I am one :) Its just that the RE0 don't offer enough.. I am hoping that the Sm3 v2 have that. Also, with the RE0 i've tried many different tips, and the comply foam gives me the best seal, but its still not good enough..not as good as my old shure 3c.. so even if the sm3 doesn't offer more bass from the headphone itself, i feel like i will get a little bit more from the better seal with sure olives for example. 

 

Any thoughts ? Should I go for the V2 ?

Believe me you´ll get plenty of bass (if the V2 and V1 sound the same). I owned the UM2 earlier the amount of bass of the SM3 is more or less the same and most of the time perfectly right (meaning skakingly good but not bloomy). SM3 doesnt need amp else you´ll just waste your money.
