InEar StageDiver 3 (SD-3) | Sony Hybrid/Ortofon Tips/Cerumen Filters | Shipping Included - Price Drop!
Will Ship To: Anywhere
Up for sale is my fairly recently acquired InEar StageDiver 3 (SD-3). Purchased here from the Classifieds from user HiFlight (great guy!) so I'm the second owner and have had them about 1 month. I had been following the StageDiver lineup for some time due to their blend of custom-gone-universal housing and technical capabilities. What can I say, they deliver in both regards. Myself and a few friends have all tested the fit on these and much to our amazement all got an excellent fit from these uniquely designed shells despite having fairly different ear shapes. They manage to be comfortable and well-seated in the ear for minimum movement, and isolate very well as a result. The build quality is exquisite for a universal, they are definitely made to last.
I was pretty much sold on these for all of their merits, however I have determined that the tonality and overall signature are not to my absolute preference for two reasons: a) wide, spacious soundstage and b) bass quantity. These are very engaging IEMs - the bass is almost astonishing for a BA-based IEM in that not only do you get high resolution bass, but you get that big body and lushness overall in the whole signature. It's warm, but not overly so and while the bass is authoritative, it's not overdone and doesn't intrude on the mids, just giving them a bit more fullness. Treble is quite detailed, well extended and non-peaky so it's quite smooth, non-fatiguing in that aspect but also not as forward. While I generally like a more lush signature, at the same time I also find I prefer a more intimate presentation with a more forward midrange and a bit less bass quantity. As a result, I've decided to consider finding a CIEM with a more similar presentation to the BA200.
