That is exactly what i expected for smily_headphones1.gif but i also interested to hear if any thoughts...

What about the bass, soundstage PRAT etc.. 

Also anyone know if there is a V2 version currently selling. I actually like to AB and report back here. 

I saw one in amazon, do u guys think its the v2?


These are the changes that come with the v2 as stated by Earsonics.
Let me know what you think when you get to A/B them.

Details:
-As a result, we obtain a better control of the spectral balance (medium "sauce Earsonics" upper midrange and deleting any sibilance on some players high listening levels) with better support in the lower spectrum used in low power drives ...
-Lowering the overall impedance of 95 ohms headphones for better "driving" with low level players such iPod, J3, etc..
With this modification, the SM64 can perfectly go amp to operate ... Use an amp certainly improve the listening experience (as with our EM4 and EM6) but it is not mandatory.

The lows are the same but the mids are more forward. Not THAT much but noticeable.

From what I have read it seems like sm64 is like ck100pro. I hope Australian shops start selling this soon.
