Thanks, unlike Earsonics you appear to be a very well mannered person. ;)

 Maybe they will send some nice French patisserie with my headphone as an apology.

In a separate box I hope. Earsonics are close to my wife's hometown, and charcuterie and wine are more likely.

Wine will do then. They can keep the sausages.

Ah, ok.  I was wondering, since you got to try them, how large are they?  I assume they are bigger than the SM3/SM64 due to the extra drivers.  Anything you would compare it to size wise?

i think so,This probably still wins the title for first full-production 6-driver UIEMs.thanks

Is it just me or there's quite a gap between the faceplate and the shell?

In that picture, I notice it too. Let's hope that they don't have the infamous falling apart of shells issue that afflicted the SM3 and SM3v2. When I had the SM3, the build quality wasn't exactly comforting, and I wasn't too impressed with the sound signature either. It would be a shame if the S-EM6 have similar build quality issues, especially for that price. Regardless, I am interested in reading headfiers subjective opinions of the new contender for the universal iem crown...

However mids are quite recessed, especially its low mids. Bass is just so so with more emphasis on the mid bass, either that masks the sub bass or the lows actually rolls off early I don't know, but there wasn't much sub bass I could hear at that time. Overall the EM6 has nice sound stage, though it might get quite artificial at times due to the recessed mids. Imaging is a bit sub par also due to the lack of low mids and upper bass, as well as sub bass.

Never heard the EM6, but excepting "detailed sparkling treble" that description sounds *nothing* like the SM64.

Well, to me it does.

If this new model still has the old shell-is-falling-apart problem, I really don't know what is going on in their QA department...

Quite big. It felt like a full size custom and I have moderate sized ears. I can imagine that for some it will be too big.

I also noticed that when I had them in my hands and inspected it with nail - no there is no gap. They filled this "gap" with clear acrylic so it looks as if there was nothing there. You know quality wise they are looking ok, and feels sturdy in hand, they are definitely hand-made so there will be some imperfections but there's nothing to be worry about.

Poor practice and it does not inspire confidence in their company in my book. These French people have no manner!. :angry_face:

 

When I ordered mine, I got an automated message that basically amounted to a receipt in French. It confirmed my order for me. Did you not get that? Maybe check your spam box?

 

There was no "thank you" or message going along with it, but honestly a receipt is more than I've gotten from some other companies. Not sending you a "welcome message" is pretty common in my experience, and I've had plenty of companies outside of EarSonics---from all parts of the world---do it. When it comes to customer service I usually regard sins of omission as not being quite as bad as sins of commission.

I agree that they sound slightly different from the the SM64 in some aspects, especially the low mids and sub bass. The SM64 gives you a fuller overall presentation thanks to its better sub bass and rounder low mid, but listening to female vocal is a pain due to the suckout from 4khz to 9khz. I didn't encounter that problem with the EM6 yet I could see there's still some room for improvement regarding its sub bass (it's not lacking, but a bit more would definitely be better).

Cool. But I would expect they fix this 'gapping' issue by the time it's officially released. They have a 1300$ price tag stuck on after all (or was it discounted recently?).

I did receive the receipt but no thank you, until this afternoon  :D . I wonder if they are monitoring this thread ?

For me it was the first time I didn't get such message, which felt weird considering it is some kind of luxury items. I believe it is just normal courtesy to thank customers, especially when they invest in your flagship product.
Anyway, I don't want want to make a big deal of it, just saying  I was  surprised.

I'm gone yesterday in Clapiers, near from Montpellier, to visit them. Very nice people, a real human enterprise with dreams, philosophy and sound ideal. Attention to my visit was very nice.

 

I have both EM6 and S-EM6 in my hand, and almost at the same time in my ears. Dude, those IEMs are incredible, they sound as good as their flagship EM6 !!! I try it on Hibino HDP-R10 and iBasso DX50, both are giving them a level of realism, excitement that push you into the music as no other IEMs, including ToGo334 and Parterre that I have with me for review.

 

I saw yesterday all the process to build them and it is a totaly hand-crafted IEMs ! TOTALY, from A to Z, excepted transducers and condos :D. So they paint the pretty ES and S-EM6 with gold coloured paint after the laser engraved the symbols.

 

French have no manners ? Ahahah, please ;) you're so rude, it is professionnal hand-crafted products, not luxury ! And you don't see how they work hard to be just in time with the distribution of the product in order to keep the high quality fabrication ! I don't know if some of you have ever work in a human size firm, but EarSonics is not Westone and Shure, but they are at least as good as them to my mind ;) I'm sometimes proud to be french :deadhorse:
