Especially a metallic silver color? It would sound great, AND be fashionable...

Maybe.

LOL. Maybe if you just put fat diamonds on each one. A square one for right side, circle for left. Perfect, side designation, bling, and uniquiness!
Cool beans.

howabout a mix of metallic gunmetal gray and metallic blue/red according to left/right. in a similar method of color scheme to the e500s. have the main body a dark metallic blue or red, then have the cable and everything else a gunmetal gray.

Gunmetal Gray is so...so...bland though. The thought of having metallic silver 3's just looks nice to me.

The heck with the color...let's just get these puppies built and shipped! (Although a dark silver metallic would be pretty cool.)

Thats the point...no need to attract attention.

Looking great, while being subtle is the key.

The picture I have in my mind is one mismatched ugly duckling. I can see how it would look cool having all these colors in pictures and not in your ears...but having different colors on each ear when they're in use is kinda "bleh." Reminds me of clowns.

Lets not play a game of "rice my IEMs"

Gotta add that pulsating light that goes with the beat of the music :P

Anything as long as it's low profile, not shiny and dark! Clear cable is great too.

I really like the look of the black UM2's BTW! They would be in my ears as we speak if it weren't for the 3.

i've posted elsewhere, but i'll also post in this thread. i had a chance to listen to the 3 at macworld. i honestly was not expecting much since i am not a big UM2 fan...

but the 3 is NOTHING like the UM2, as has been mentioned in this thread. so for those of you who like the UM2, you might not be that happy with the 3 because they sound very different. IMO, the UM2 has way overdone bass...boomy and not enjoyable. it also masks the detail and the midrange that i think is there, just not audible b/c of the bass. the 3, on the other hand, has a beautiful midrange and it sounds much more even across the frequency spectrum. nice slamming bass that goes low enough...if you want UM2 bass you'll have to bump up the EQ.

i don't see the 3 as a "step up" from the UM2 in terms of being a more refined UM2...it's a totally different (thank goodness) IEM altogether, nothing like its sibling. yes, i know i'm being a bit harsh on the UM2...i'm just not a big fan. but i really really like the 3 and would seriously think about purchasing it had i not already bought a custom IEM. i just want to warn the UM2 fans out there that they could be disappointed with the 3 b/c it's not like the UM2...but for those of you who don't really like the UM2, the 3 is a westone you might really like.

Well, I got my UM1's and gotta say, if the 3's are as comfortable as the UM1's, I'll be a very happy camper.

Trose is just madly in love with his UE-10 . I like the idea of a replaceable cable, but the increase in price is bad . I think the color should be a metallic blue/green or jet black with a glossy finish.
Or

Jet black glossy with Westone engraved in metallic blue! sounds good =]

So its more like an improved Etymotic almost? All the details, the tight bass, great midrange. Just a bit more of the bass, plus crystal highs that the Etys damage just a tine with a slight fullness may i dare say?

Hmmm... now I'm concerned about get custom molds for Etys. They seemed like the end all but these sound lucious. Any chance the barrels will be the same width. That would be phenomenal.

Wow, seems like a excellent IEM is coming out soon. Seems perfect for me. Could you include a shirt clip or something, something like the ones on the etymotic research phones?
