Great music taste indeed. Keep them in mind for when I decide to an upgrade

I am owner of ck100, SM3, Re0, ReZero,x10, Shure530, MTPG, UE triple10. Others I've heard and compared with my headphones for quite long time.
 
I love extreme music like hardcore, deathcore, noise. Also I listen trance and Lara Fabian)))

I really feel blessed owning both the RE0 and FA DBA-02 as they are often ranked higher than the IE8, TF10 and even the e-Q7 and SM3 among certain individuals

Interesting. Why rank DBA-02 = SM3? I have the DBA-02 and am actually planning to get the SM3 as an upgrade. Isn't the SM3 supposed to be the better of the two?

I know of others who would rank the DBA-02 as better than the SM3 due to the difference in sonic signatures and vice versa. I also know of a few people who owned the SM3 and sold it once they had the DBA-02's.

Just like an itch waiting to be scratched..Havent scratched mine yet but am having second thoughts regarding the SM3's now...

At a certain point it's more about sound signature preference than anything. I think the level the DBA-02 is at that point and while I haven't heard the SM3 a lot of people who owned both the SM3 and DBA-02 feel it is as well.

Agreed. At a certain price/performance point it really does become about sound signature preferences.

=1)Etymotic ER4S,Stax SR001 MK2
2)Sennheiser IE8
3)Denon C700
4)Etymotic er6i
 
I listen to Classical including Wagner, Bartok, Bach berlioz and Mahler. American roots and bluegrass,Pink Floyd and for electronic Depech Mode and Ultravox. Also have a thing for Vince Gill and Dolly Parton, Neil young, Green Day, Deep Purple and Zep.
 
All of these phones sound great with this music overall though I find the ETY's and Stax best with all of it and the Senn's great with large scale Wagnarian Opera.
