Hi dear customer, Unlike some customers have wrote on audio forums and according with our retailers.
We don't do free upgrades to v2 (regardless of when a v1 was purchased) We also not propose automatic upgrade option to V2. Exceptionally and regarding the number of e-mails we receive asking for it, we will propose a paying upgrade (60€ for reshell + replaceable cable) to:
-Customers how[sic] have buyed there SM during the last 2 month before the starting of the V2 version.
-Customers how[sic] have a warranty problem with there[sic] SM V1.
we apologize for this but it will be impossible for us to propose this automatic option on good condition of quality of service and manufacture our product line at the same time. We still at your disposal. sincerely, Franck LOPEZ
Thanks for the input and they do look very similar don't they. Just the upgrade and probably the TWag V2 for me then! :)
You have a point, but I still have my doubts. Many companies use double BA at this price point for good reason, but Etymotic showed that one BA can be enough. To me, it'll be interesting if that single BA still retains that earsonics house sound.
can you guys ask him whether the difference is just on the shell and the cable? Any explaination on the 34 ohm impedance?
in one of the old thread ("108 IEM compared"?) the SM3 was listed as 34 ohm, but that post was so old it had to be a V1, however all the current V1 spec I can find on line say v1 is17 ohm....
Following my first two posts on this thread, it seems that Franck was flooded with similar requests and thus has now changed his policy regarding this. Either that, or there has been a miscommunication from him in his original emails. This is the exact correspondence I had with him, aka the original emails:"upgrade-to- V2" correspondences (Click to show)
Next, regarding my post on "same sound", this was his response. Once again, I am simply quoting what he said - whether the V2s do or do not have a different sound is up to future owners to decide for themselves:"same sound" correspondences (Click to show)
The above is simply for the knowledge of fellow Head-Fiers. I have decided not to send mine in for now.
