@ Inks (and others)

 

After more listening and playing a little with the EQ I also found the upper mids to have a dip.

When I both lower the 300Hz band and lift the 3000Hz band I get a very open, natural and unveiled sound.

V1, sir! I see no need for me to 'upgrade' to the V2s as i prefer the V1 aesthetically and since they sound the same...whats the point? Besides, memory wire is a pain-in-the-axx since i wear glasses.

Yeah I was not a fan of the memory wire. I find it more annoying than helpful.

Agreed!! :D

mmmm must find Earsonics and inflict a lot of violence on them... The memory wire is about 5cm which is a lot shorter than useful for anyone that's not a half-hobbit (about 10cm is generally quite useful and I do wear glasses, but not when running)Furthermore, the new cable y-split length to the earpiece when worn around the ear is still stranglecious...

It's really quite appalling that Earsonics can't listen to even the most basic feedback and stop supplying short useless crap for cables unless you're a mystical creature with small ears and short neck/small head...

Well, now when your cable breaks in 6 months which it probably will because you will keep tugging it, you can just waste $50 ordering a new one, instead of $150 posting SM3v1 there and back. ('homg-yay'?)

Screw you earsonics for your great money extracting plan.

Otherwise, sounds about the same as v1/the new ear-piece body shape is a lot less ear-rapey...

250250.

Finally, the cheapos did not include a cable clip or an ENG manual... Which for the RRP you probably want and would expect.


Here's a review link, where I attempt to be a bit more civil biggrin.gif http://www.head-fi.org/products/earsonics-sm3v2-universal-in-ear-monitors/reviews/5358

Like the original SM3 it seems like there are 3 peaks in the FR - somewhere in mid to upper bass, in the mids, and in the highs (cymbal hits are very ... too sharp)... I may have been converted away from SM3 completely frown.gif as I now find that sort of sound fatiguing.

*sends an angry email to earsonics*..

aaand my pair is now FS http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/563238/ic-fs-earsonics-sm3v2-sydney-australia-or-worldwide

I recently purchased a pair of Earsonics SM3 V2 from a fellow head-fier, and after using them for a while I'm now noticing one strange thing.

When I put the earphones into my ears and touch the shells while the music is NOT playing there appears to be a low metallic buzzing sound in the right earpiece.
Like the drivers are not properly attached inside the right earphone or something like that. Do you happen to know if it's a common thing? Does anybody have the same problem?

It does not affect the SQ and I hear nothing if the music is playing.

Hi kayser, I have the v1's and just tested out what you mentioned and could not replicate it. Dunno if its a common thing with the V2s tho as I haven't heard anyone mention it. Possibly a faulty unit you have there? Wonder if ES will honor the warranty for such a thing since as you say it does not impede its proper operation. But I understand how it can be annoying.

Hey, Heret1c, thanks for the info.

Some guys who also own a pair of SM3 V2 report the same problem on Russian local forum.

I've already emailed ES and they said they would repair it, but it will cost me a fortune to ship the earphones in France with EMS.

You're welcome.

 

Agh, that sucks. Shipping is such a pain sometimes.
 

 

post #629 of 1150

Can you ship via first class? Should'nt be too much. I also found that first class is just as fast as priority

post #630 of 1150

I can, but I'm afraid it will take 3-4 weeks for the package to arrive.

I'm now leaving on vacation, so I will decide what to do after I come back to Russia.

Anyway, I'd like to hear if anybody else has this problem.
