I used it with AK100 mod stage 2 before and it sounded really nice.

Like Mimoulle and some german fellas have said: the sd3 is a fitear togo334 category inear and it depends on your taste which one you prefer.

 

These IEMs are on track to become my favourites, that's for sure. The Sennheiser IE8 is well-known to have a great soundstage and I believe as someone mentioned before, the SD3 feels like a significant refinement and natural progression of the IE8's character. No Sennheiser-esque veil and an immense soundstage. The signature of the SD3 lets it take control of the music. Turn the volume up and the SD3 just accelerates, easily to the point where it will become overwhelming for some. But to me? Musical bliss biggrin.gif

Gintas good luck in getting SD3, you will like it very much.

Is the best sounding universal IEM that I ever heard and the sound may not be far from a CIEM.

Best to get comply foams TX400 medium and sound and isolation will change in better.

Well as nice as the AK100 mod can sound, which is very good, but maybe not the best on the planet :)

Musicday, thanks, this will be interesting.

I would not go for Complys. They protrude too far. It is best to get a short tip that allows really deep insertion. Of course every ear is shaped differently, but I definitely get the best out of both StageDivers when they are sucked onto the inside of the auricle (which makes sense since the aim is to mimic a custom). With my ear canal this is not possible with Complys or most regular tips.

 

The default tips are soft and hardly protrude. They are a good start, though I use UE900 tips but a smaller size than I usually choose (because the StageDiver goes really deep).

Funnily enough Ultrazino, I am loving the stubby Comply tsx400 tip now. Super comfortable and as good as the deepest seal I had with the silicone. Totally negates the air pressure issue I had with my right ear as well (moisture/tip flex).

 

Last night with Noisia, blew me away yet again and ended my session with John Denver weirdly enough. Hope my wife doesn`t get too annoyed!

I still can't get over their godly performance with electronica, turn 'em up around 100 dB and tear down every wall-just too much energy!

Insane sound and personally a bargain for me. So pleased you guys are hearing what I hear and after about 30 hours the mids start to become super clear,maybe the bedding in of the crossovers but who cares.
Like them now? They get better. Can I say Insane again?

Music to my ears!

Does anyone have details on the research InEar did while designing the shells? Just interested how they could come up with a universal that has such a custom feel.

No idea where I read it, but they calculated the "average ear" out of impressions from over 1000 (don't quote me on that number) customers (men and women) who ordered customs at InEar.

I see, very smart of them to use that data to create their universals.

Hah and knowing my luck I would have been the 1001'th customer and so wouldn't fit! :)
