Been lurking for a few weeks due to wanting some new phones, prior to this I have been into relatively mainstream audio equipment and these will represent my highest end purchase to date, I have already:
Sennheiser IE-6 iem's (for portables)
Sennheiser HD 595's (for my pc)
B&W P5's (for laying in bed on my iPad generally)
With my previous IEM's I had some really crummy experiences with comfort due to the tips provided as I have a quite delicate ear canal, a few weeks ago I picked up some Comply tips and realised how much I liked the IEM sound when I could wear them without my ears hurting after 30 seconds so I've been doing some research and have decided on the SM3 V2's mainly due to the posters on here to be honest, I've already added some Shure olive tips to my amazon wishlist if need be.
I ordered these on monday from the offical Earsonic site and kept checking throughout Tuesday while I was at work and it went from "Pending" to "Delivered" I raced home thinking UPS might have left these with a neighbour but when I got in there was no sign anyone had been at all, I'm hoping it's just an error and they're going to come today, I wasn't really expecting next day delivery anyway as I'm in London and I ordered midday on Monday, very excited though, cannot wait to hear these.
I recently picked up a Fiio E7 and L3 for my iPod Classic 160, will this now be completely unneccessary or will it improve things even a little, if not I can just leave it on my PC as the on-board soundcard is bloody horrible.
Thanks for the help choosing these, I cannot wait to recieve them
*edit* I have read this thread from page 1 over the last few days
