That's a tough question because the seal on the dm2 has a lot to do with bass impact and sound quality on a whole.
When I use a wide bore tip that seals well on the dm2, the sound is boomy and makes the mids muddy and the treble too splashy. In this case the bass impact is about equal, but the quality right out of the box of the h3 is superior quality wise.
The dm2 is one of my favorite phones in the $65 range because I did a lot of experimenting with tips and found the perfect one for them. I use the ear guides and go over the ear with a little extra slack on them. I use a narrow bore tip that fits snug and doesn't seal completely (as closed to sealed with out actually sealing). Using that set up the dm2 is so lovely and the bass is still prominent. The mids are nice and treble actually becomes a strength rather than a weakness. When I wear them this way the bass impact on the h3 is more prominent, and still better sq.
We're talking about a driver that minus the hybrids (ex1000) and used for the whole spectrum sells for over $500!
PS-I only use the red filter on my dm2. Unless you're a bass head the black filter is way to bass, and the silver filter is garbage (no bass at all).
The dm2 is great. The h3 is in a whole other league though. It's like comparing a really good bookshelf 2.1 speaker system to a top of the line tower speaker and sub woofer setup.Edited by Hisoundfi - 6/9/14 at 12:09pm
