If ES3 is warmer than S-EM6 V2, then S-EM6 V2 is not for me. Thanks for your impressions. :)

I do really dislike the general trend toward analytical sound by the way. Encore is more analytical than K10, S-EM6 V2 is more analytical than V1... Musicality is more important in my opinion.

Thanks for the great review. As an owner of the S-EM6v1 and S-EM9, it would seem I have to give these a pass. No fault of the IEMs of course, just that I think I have their sound signature pretty much covered.

Yes, thank you for the review.
 
@obsidyen I agree the musical to flat tuning is a general trend, and a personally unwelcomed one. Still surprised Noble changed their K10 sig. 
 
I was looking forward to buying the S-EM6, but like @SeeSax, will be buying a second hand first gen version. Flat analytical iems leave me pretty cold. 
 
I thought that @Aerosphere 's finding that the K10 had significantly more resolution than the S-EM6v2 was a bit surprising with the latter's tuning. But K10 has those extra 4 drivers - so maybe not so much.

@obsidyen I understand you but many audiophiles like swimming in details, hearing every macro detail etc. Perhaps we should understand Earsonics why they wanted something different than the rest of the lineup.. 
@SeeSax You're very welcome. I also used S-EM6v1 during 2014, it was a quite sentimental iem. I like its vocal presentation very much.
@jgosroc You're welcome!  Btw, it's only 1 step. It is definitely not much. One have to pay attention to get a hold of it, even..
