As many know now, Earsonics has made a giant leap on Headfi after some spreading of the monitor, the SM2. The dual driver universal that stands up against TF10's, SE530's, W3's and Um3X's without a problem in terms of not just sound quality, but also build quality.

Earsonics just announced their brand new, and upcoming Three-way triple driver monitor, the SM3. It's the same size as the SM2, infact it's very similar to the differences between the Um2 and Um3x. The SM3 is half black...half transparent, three-way triple driver...it's the same exact configuration as the Um3X. I'm sure we all look forward to seeing how this triple driver monster will go against the current triples on the market...my thoughts...UE, Shure and Westone should be worried big time, they've made a dual driver that goes head to head with their flagship universals already...

^ Yeah, they have an online store. But when I realized they wanted €50 for shipping from France to Austria my interest in the SM2 vanished into thin air.

The price quoted on their site includes "French tax." If you order from oversea, the price will be lower but then they slap you with 50 € shipping + custom. So ye... that price is about it

what they need is a dealer in the states... this way, we won't be charge any Euro tax, and dont have to pay for the ridiculous shipping.

oh price is out: about 288Euro without tax plus 50Euro shipping to the states....

The price relation EUR vs. USD is always off when it comes to electronic gadgets. Usually it's very beneficial for Americans, most gadgets are way cheaper over there - but this on seems to be the exception due to no American distribution.

We Europeans always have to pay more, so: neener neener neener.
