I'm really torn between which sounds best to me, as they are quite different. If I go purely on sound and accuracy of it, the AKG may well be the better reference still.

 

Will get back to you guys with pics and opinions. :etysmile:

 

Oh please I would love the comparison between those 2.  I am researching on paterre now but another part of me is curious on the SE846 as well.. I am not going to buy 2 as I have only 1 small piggy bank.. I don't wanna kill the pig.

I would still go with AKG over others with better SQ. The feel when using them and the look of the AKG is just amazing.
There might be better iem's SQ wise (which would be just by small margin) BUT the FAR better look of the AKG over others is far more valuable ... To me anyway.

Beside the SQ, somehow I feel good and proud to have them in my ears. After spending this much money on them I'm glad that I feel this way.

I am using iPhone 5 atm and would like to know what is the best one for these iem.

 

Thanks

I like the DX100 best with the K3003, for the sheer power, grip and control........

Have you tried AK100 with k3003?

There is a local dealer in my city for AK100 so it would be handy if I have issue with the player.

I no longer have the RWAK100 but I recall that my K3003's paired nicely with it.  I never had the AK100 for comparison but I would think that the output impedance of the stock player would be too high for the K3003's.

Higher output impedance will increase the K3003's treble presence by a few decibels, which may or may not be desirable:

I started some A/B'ing today, didn't jot down any notes so more to come.

For those interested in knowing what I think of the AKG K3003i compared to the Shure SE846, feel free to critique!

If the iPhone 5 sounds as good as the iPod touch generation 4 you really don't need another portable player. I have a few portable TOTL amp/dacs (check my profile) and I'm now considering selling them all. Sure, there is a slightly different feeling listening to my amp/dacs, but the touch has the cleanest sound. Try the iPod touch G4 if you can and if you can't hear any difference go with your iPhone 5! I mean this sincerely!

Round 2 with the K3003 for me.  Looking forward to comparing with my 1+2 tonight and even the Astrotec AX60 in a few weeks.
