I've heard the SM3 has a really odd sound-signature. And saying that everyone loves them is a pretty big exaggeration; for the most part, I think they are a very polarizing IEM. I have not had the chance to listen to them, but that's what I got from what trusted reviewers have said.
Out of all the IEMs ZARIM listed, I would have went with either the EX600 or UM3X for your musical preferences...
Well, from comparisons other than mine as I haven't listened to the SM3, it seems that the UM3X has more bass (sub and mid bass) than the SM3. It has also been said to have a more pleasing sound-stage, one that doesn't make some music sound "off" like the SM3 (other peoples opinions, not mine.) I can't cite any sources as I'm just basing the SM3's sound signature off of the hours I've spent on Head-fi researching the SM3.
So far, the UM3X has sounded splendid on all of the music I've been listening to.
