Minutes away from placing my order for an SM3.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Should I order it from amazon ??? (This is my only choice as I am an international buyer and amazon is the only place where they accept international plastic). :)

 

 

EDIT: What tips should I get along with my SM3 ?? (I listen to house musis, nujazz,acid jazz, and hiphop/rap)

They come with both Complys and bi-flanges. Try them both and use the ones you like better

I'll be getting those in about two weeks, and I'll post pictures and all that fuzz! Thank you everyone. Amazing website with so many people, point of views, and experts. Head-fi ftw!

I've heard positive things said about the sensorcom biflanges, as well as the phonak audeo pfe tips.

The Sensorcom bi-flanges tips sounded like the best tips for the SM3 to me when I owned them. Also, if this is your first IEM purchase over $10, you will be absolutely blown away by the SM3, even with stock tips and all. Let us know how they sound. Happy listening! o2smile.gif

Ok I have been using my SM3's for the last hour and...oh. my. goodness. I don't think I ever heard sound like this before!!!..There's depth, as in there are instruments which are far away and others which are closer, its really incredible!. For the first time, vocals and instruments don't away with the presence of Bass. Everything is there are the same time. Instruments, Bass and vocals!. I don't believe that these will improve further more with burn-in!! I mean is there even a possibility to improve any further ?!.

 

In short, Mind=Blown.

 

Thanks head-fi for helping me on my decision!

Infinite possibilities for ears & I.E.M's to improve or not

Im using the Gel tips that came with it (two pairs were included). I wanted try out the foam tips but they kind of deform really quick so I packed them back and will use them when I learn more about them.

You have picked an excellent high quality I.E.M to Begin with .

 

Because they don't shout out BASS basshead.gif! or TREBLEbasshead.gif! ,you should get well accustomed to a generally well balanced frequency spectrum .
