post #976 of 1150
Is there any 3 button cable to connect the SM3 to a Samsung S3?
Thanks in advance,

  any ideas?  


Have you tried the triple flanges from Shure?

so far the best seal i get is with a single-flange, soft black tip (Shure?). but it has a small bore and gives a bit darker sound than other tips...  i just ordered the Monster sampler to get the adapters, so i can try a bunch of my other tips designed for larger nozzles...

 

thanks for the suggestion on the tri-flanges

Can anyone recommend a good wire upgrade for these in the $60-80 range? I feel the cord is too short at times, and I sometimes come across them with my hand and knock them out of my ears.

Possibly check out something from BTG Audio

I'm about to be a proud owner of the SM3 V2 and I'm looking forward to hearing them. They have been the universal IEM that I've wanted more than any other because they're arguably the best warm mid forward universal there is and that's the signature I like the most. Hopefully I'll have them by Friday so ill post some impressions of them over the weekend.

Thought I'd chime in here now that I've got a couple of weeks listening time on my new SM3 v2's. As a veteran of Shure SE530's, I figured the vaunted SM3 mids could not possibly be as sweet, right? Wrong! Wow, these are good! The beautiful thing is the sound is so darn balanced across the entire spectrum. Compared to the Shures, the SM3 bass is much more impactful and the highs are noticeably less rolled off (although still a tad laid back.). And as for soundstage, I never considered the SE530's narrow or compressed, but the SM3's are so much more spacious while still retaining the intimacy that the somewhat forward mids provide. Last but not least, detail and separation are simply stunning. I just cant believe how engaging these are. Music I've listened to hundreds of times has taken on new life. I may still be in the honeymoon phase, but I can't fathom there's a better universal IEM for my tastes. A+

Where can I get these for around $300?
Amazon had 17 in stock "New" but a day later they were removed.

I can't find them anywhere and I really don't wanna pay 350 EUR for them on the Earsonic site. Help, please!

Just got a set brand new for $299 a couple of weeks back from Soundearphones.com via eBay.

Welcome to the SM3 club :-) They really are special. I considered the SE535 as an upgrade to my SE215, but went with the SM3 based on jokers reviews, and I've never looked back; I've only bought full sized cans since, except for the TF10 which was intended as a brighter side grade, but since defiltering my SM3 the TF10 are officially nothing more than a backup.

From an SE530 user, that was quite an endorsement.

I think its been almost a year now since I got mine..I am very happy with my purchase. I've been working out and cycling with them a lot, and they are still holding up fine. I haven't changed the cables yet, but I still want to that... Kurdt-bada  here recommended these:

So I still plan on getting them..

 

Shure Olive or the yellow foam tips give me the best isolation..

Can someone tell me how the sm3 v2 compares with the JVC FX700, when listening to hip hop/rap? Also, is the housing and isolation better than the normal sm3?

Man, I would be careful about cycling with SM3s. One band yank on that cable, and you get this:
