SM3 can do bass?
But is your personal preference being shaped by "find which one "best" fits my genre of music (mainly trance, progressive, EDM),"? .
Can you please let me know what I.E.M are you comparing against to hear the SM3 as having a "dark signature" ? . Which I.E.M's signature do you hear has more neutral?
If people gave more reasoned views and compared there reasoning to other I.E.M's we'd all have a better chance @ determining the facts .
Within the balanced Armature I.E.M realm ,has the SM3 got the most accurate bass reproduction.. Does it make a Deep resonant bass drum sound Deep and resonant ? .
I've heard plenty of physical proof that the top I.E.M's can produce sweet Mids and highs. . Can the SM3's give the sense that they get down deep ...? and dirty if called upon. whilst still maintaining transparency in the lows,mids and highs .
How would anyone compare the brightness of the SM3's too CK10's and or e-q5's ?
Would the OP be so kind and try to give more details in the differences between the westone 3's sub bass and the SM3's .
