As you say everyone can not have the same tastes and a lot of people will not like the SD3, in the same way I do not like clear and bright sounding IEM and it's fine wink.gif

 

and that's a valid point, remember choosing between pasta and pizza is a difficult act in itself biggrin.gif

if all people liked just one sound sig there would be only two IEM manufactures tongue.gif

The answer was not towards carlsan, it was towards of those who got a different taste,

Same goes for the detail the sd3 offers... decent details vs poor? Depends on what you are used to...I find that the sd3 offers many details/many layers and handles the seperation very well, like the background layer for the atmosphere, almost on par with the jh13 pro.

I totally agree with you, everything is relative and I am more than satisfied with what I hear with the SD3 beerchug.gif

The SD3 provide a superb musical rendering, I had great satisfaction in listening Santana, great album with great musicians. smile.gif

 

 

This is the full album in HQ.

I listened to my SD3's for a solid week. At the beginning of the week I felt as if I was missing the low end oomph that I thought I had heard before, possibly with different tips, and couldn't seem to reproduce. The rest of the spectrum was there, but not the solid low end.

I finally tried some Ortofon tips, and started to get the sound I wanted. First I tried the small tips, then I tried the medium tips, those nailed it.

Big bassy sound again, solid oomph, and great slam.

 


I highly recommend anyone who is missing low end on these to check out the Ortofon tips. I bought mine off of ebay here.

I don`t lack bass but have just ordered the Ortofon tips to see how they sound.

Oh and Gintaras this is Noisia, remixing Moby. Slam heaven, especially the last third :-)

I can't find any ortofon tips, the auctions ended on ebay...too bad.. I like to try different eartips, you never know maybe they are even better smily_headphones1.gif

Currently I'm still using the black double Flanges and think that they deliver the best sound. wink.gif

Sinth, i am not a big fan of such type of music but i admit this sounds interesting and talented interpret.

Just to say that I went from Noozxoide Pro to the E Series (presets are warm-clean and studio), the sound has continued to surprise me for an smartphone (Note2), I also changed the tips for the Ortofon and they are the best I could try on the SD3 at the moment. (Thank Carlsan)
 
Result is just the level and quality of bass that I wish with magic voices for my humble but passionate ears.
 
I know, I'm not an expert that's why I say magical tongue.gif

after having heard and appreciated ASG2 i am all more curious to hear SD3 which was another IEM to stirr things up here. i am always keen about things which bring good controversy and SD3 was that. damn, after riding Shelby Ford Mustang I am eager to see Mercedes McLaren :-)

I don't think there has been any controversy about SD3. It has a lot of bass and intimate mids. If you like that, it is a dead solid product.

 

If you are scared the bass might be too bloated or mids too warm, go for the SD2 instead. It performs far better than you'd expect from a two-way system. It's one of the most complete IEMs I've ever heard (I bought it twice).
