post #286 of 765
@Sinth, many thanks for your very good review, hope next month I get the SD3,
the price is just in my budget, unfortunately I can't afford the 1plus2 or IE800, my wife will just not accept ...
 
@Gintaras, same problem here in Switzerland, no shop, it's a shame !

Thanks and pleased they are on your list. BA drivers or not, these have settled in perfectly and you are in for a treat, especially in electronica genres.

I will say this again as per an update, you can`t put bass into a track that doesn`t have it. Sounds obvious but making clear.

yes, this is damn pain here mate, i am sorry for us.

this is why HeadFi is so special thread and you find honest opinions helping you make your choice. Sinth is credible mate and so i had big interest in SD3 but sadly i had to chicken out since other expenses popped up and i cannot justify SD3 anymore. my girls at home keep asking me how many more post boxes i am expected to receive, my daughter lost count of them and my tolerant wife might become less tolerant if i do not stop now  .... so time for a pause until i get some older gear sold which can finance some new purchases. rolleyes.giftongue_smile.gif

Edit: The SD3 certainly doesn`t mind getting dirty, in fact it`s a mudlark.

 

yes mate, so we wait for Eke cool.gif

I mostly listen to Pop - Rock - Metal, I'm used to IE80 and XBA-4, I think the signature must be close enough?
 
The only thing that worries me from what I could read is that they sound better at high volume and I listen a lot of hours at low level to save my ears.
 
Other IEM that just enter in my budget are the ASG-2, it would be really nice to have a comparison !

After reading the Ultrazino thread on the SD3 I think they are good also for my musical preference, when he compare the SD2 and SD3 he say : For most Rock, Metal and Jazz I prefer SD3.
 
Sounds very good, come on Thomann L3000.gif

Loud is better( more fun, but it depends on what's loud for you?) and SD3 delivers at higher volumes= win.

Most of the time I am listening to music at lower volume levels too. Because listening at 'party level' is definitely fatiguing.
post #293 of 765
I'm talking about sensitivity, they are not missing to much details or frequency response alteration (missing some high or low fq. etc) when listening at low level ?
 
On my Note2/XB4-IE80 the volume is about 3-4/15 when I'm working and 5-6 in transports or noisy area.
 
For me loud is also better but for a short time, take care your ears !

@Eke I can't wait for your first impressions !
But "luckily" they are not still available from Thomann biggrin.gif
They should have it for July 26, this give me time to decide between the ASG2 or the SD3.

Eke prefers the ie800 over asg-2 and fitear 334s, who knows?? Different taste, different opinion. I guess he will place the sd3 close to the fitear 334.

That totally true, I like the XBA-4 and I'm thinking I'm the only one basshead.gif
I also prefer more my Note 2 with Noozxoide than my Sony F-807 or my Cowon J3 confused.gif

Posting on my phone. Good at higher level is because these are mini thumping speakers, not your conventional iem. Conventional iems like the W4 collapse at high volume hence why I compared the SD3 to my overhead Momentums which to me crush them also with Noisia.

Edit. Eke please submit the SD3 to at least 30 hours. If your pair is already used then good to go.

Edit 2. I will not be buying another universal btw, no point. The SD3 is custom tech and has blown my universal search. I would be looking at InEar or JHaudio as another purchase but as mentioned my purchasing is done for the time being due to real life, I know weird but what an excellent gamble that Ultrazino tempted me with, not a pm just his thread. Love the freaking SD3, love it.

Who cares as long you are happy and convinced. Technical wise the sd3 shouldn't be far away from the best. It's biggest strength is the overall presentation.
