Earsonics SM64: The Impressions Thread - Page 44

SM64 are now $399 at soundearphones.com / Amazon
post #647 of 1306

With the price point of these now going down to what the SM3 v2 was going for only a year ago, I can only imagine that the SM64 will be replaced again in a couple of months by EarSonics. triportsad.gif At least its a better "normal" pricepoint for anyone who wants to try them out without spending $500 at its original going price.

I just got these IEMs from a member here who was also selling a Sony PHA-1.  I have to say that this is the first foray into this hobby and I have to say that the sound coming out of this combo is Phenomenal.  I was undecided between the SM64s and the Westone UM3XRC and was glad I stuck to these.  Again I am no expert in this feel, but can ultimately see the difference between using the stock IPhone dac/amp and the sony one and am in love.  Now I have to take it easy or I'll spend thousands on audio gear lol.

Hmm, I think its just a little bit too late for that. :) Once you've tried one of the top tier earphones, its hard to go back!

Anyone can advise what's the best tips for sm64 v2? Best as in the best sound quality
post #652 of 1306
That may be subjective, but for me personally it's the stock gray, silicone double flange tips.

For me, the Westone Star tips sound the best because they are the only ones that fit/seal my ears and stay in. Tried Shure/Westone triple flange, Earsonics included tips and Phonak Audeo silicon. The PFE tips fit great with the PFE 132, but not with the SM64 and I have no idea why.

+1, best fit to me

The black Phonak silicone tips do great things for the SM64, especially the soundstage and openness / realism. I wrote a more detailed post earlier in this thread.

I'm using shure olives, which I think it's better than the stock flanges and comply foam...anyone using the same?

Has anyone tried or use the SM64 directly out of a stock AK100? Thinking of getting a pair but just wondered if anyone had tried this combo before I dive in and buy them?

I would PM Rudi. I don't really know if his AK100 is modded but even if that's the case, considering all the gear he has, he might still have an unmodded unit :-P
I could imagine that the SM64 won't have that much of a problem with the AKs high output impedance... unlike other IEMs.

I was under the impression those were essentially what came with Earsonics stock,do they differ greatly ?
