So what does that mean? it means we feel very confident that the release is close. I had a "pre-production" set over the weekend and we tested and tested it and things were good !
Any reasonable estimates when we can get these in our hands? Is it going to be another month or so? (November? December? Somewhere in between?)

We all appreciate the update, but I think what we all want is an ETA! And since it seems testing is going well, I would hope it's an accurate ETA this time...

I don't think Westone will give any ETA until it's all good to go. Instead they will give a firm date when they have it and it will be much closer between they providing the date and the actual release date. I think it would serve Westone, their dealers and their customers best if we don't go that route again. I don't think they should give an ETA at all. A firm release date whenever they have it would make everybody happier. I for one am glad to wait until we reach that point.

p0wderh0und, don't bother reading the last 50 or so pages of this thread. It's just a bunch of whining and complaining.

We're glad to have you back. Thanks for the good news.

P.S. - She was here in the labs Monday. ;-)
Oh great, now you get to deal with all of us whining Hdfi'er. Of course this had nothing to do with your CEO being named in the Korean blog. But it's great that you get paid to chat on this forum. Any job openings?

And since your still putsing-around, how do they (she?) sound with gel-tips (ref. Klipsch Custom-3)?

yeah Doug, welcome back to the fray . there sure was a lot of silly griping with the occasional worthwhile remark tossed in. if you would be so good as to check in periodically to let us know the status of things i'm sure it'd help settle things down.
oh, and can you please ask the powers that be to release the clear version up front (given the delays that'd probably make 'em right on schedule. ). oh, and while you're at it please include a set of biflanges!

Not sure clear will happen honestly, but ya never know. Main reason is, with clear, things on the inside need to be somewhat attractive or REALLY clean looking. I'll make sure to pass it along though.

Finnally!! The long wait is going to end!!

Well I for one certainly appreciated the extra time to save up my money! Especially since I recently moved and had to put down a hefty security deposit on my new place...

Unfortunately, I am also in the market for a new HDTV, so now the W3 will have some competition for my dollars. Unless Best Buy lets me use a 10% coupon on top of a sale price, and also get 24 months no-financing, in which case I'll be able to get both and still give good Christmas presents!

Yeah, God forbid he get a sense of the damage Westone's reputation has suffered as a result of him dropping off the face of the planet. Although I'm guessing this will be eventually forgotten and forgiven with time if the product is good.

Anyhow, comments like yours always disturb me, because they're dismissive of valid emotional responses and ignorant of how humans communicate and exist in reality. We're not robots sharing zeroes and ones here. We're complex organisms that function on a number of levels: rational, irrational, emotional, intuitive, associative, experimental, and instinctual. It's not as simple as "the headphone will get here when it gets here. so shut up." I mean, it is that simple in an absolute sense, but humans don't experience reality that way. Take a look at any thread of head-fi. You will see that the vast majority of postings are laced with emotional cues. There is nothing wrong with that.

Sbulack and I were talking about this the other day. As he basically put it, did you ever consider the possibility that all the complaining in this thread served a kind of 'group therapy' function for people's unresolved anxiety and anger? It may not have been the original intention for the use of this thread, but the community has used it to help where it has felt its greatest need in this area. Maybe it's not relevant to your need or perspective, but I hope you'll agree that there's more to this world than your perspective, and that other people have a right to their own as well. And I would imagine there are other aspects of your life in which you do get upset. Maybe it's not headphones, maybe it's your kids, which would in fact suggest you've got your priorities straighter than some of us

This isn't directed entirely at you, moose.... the volume of my response would be a little out of proportion if it were. Your comment simply belongs to a family of abusive sentiments that have appeared over and over on this thread (and others, to be sure) that I'm attempting to address here en masse.

Very well said (written). I agree with and respect your statement. I have been struggling myself with issues from the past lately. Nothing relating to this product release date delays . However, the general attitude/position you are trying to criticize is a very good point and very well taken. Something I have to learn how to dose. That is part of a difficult learning process (at least for some people, myself included). Nevertheless, recognizing that this is something that needs to/can be improved is an improvement in itself. Just wish all my family could see it that way...

^Very brave and honest of you to share. From what I can tell, all your thoughts/sentiments are not uncommon for that initial (and very difficult) stage... recognizing that something needs to change.

In my experience, changing myself has been the hardest thing I've ever had to do. PM me if you'd like to have a more candid discussion. I'd be happy to offer some support, if only over the net.

Wow, how did I not find this thread before and how did I not find out about the Westone 3? I just sold my IEM's and am on the lookout for a new one. Looks like after 9 months and 75 pages of me missing the action they are about to be released soon. Timing is impeccable. Seems to me that a switch from Shure to Westone is in order. Now for pricing (I'm not reading all 75 pages of jibberish, if that's what you're thinking ).

And for those few who can process it, there's some humor too.


Eat less cheese.
