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.
If that's how it sounds, I'll definitely be getting a pair!

I've been looking at ES2s, but now I want to wait and see how the reports of the custom version of the new 3. Though I might have a bit of a wait, since the universal version, hasn't even hit the public yet.

curse you headfi, I'm back to dreaming of products that don't exist yet....

*YAWN*... I don't mean to put a damper on your... "party" but c'mon! Enough is enough... wake up! I know I haven't demo'ed the lil bugger yet, but... I HIGHLY doubt it's going to be a WOW experience... or something that's going to make me wanna toss my E500s or whatever just to own. We're fantasizing and speculating, and deluding ourselves into the poor house with this inane addiction... The @%#$ iems will be out when they're out, but until then enjoy what you have now... which from some of the sigs, seem like pretty decent enough gear..

I just needed to get that off my chest...

The marketing crew just love the newbs... just enough fuel to increase their bottom lines! *sigh*.. I'm in the wrong business!

It would be nice if it had user replacable filters unlike the UM1/2.

*Yawn* I just love it when people who are completely ignorant, bash people who they themselves believer to be ignorant, making yet another ignorant statement.

People have heard them, people have heard them who have heard many if not all other IEM's. These people are providing their impressions and the rest of us are speculating on how that maps onto our own preferences.

This is not some vaporware product...since folks have tried them, it is indeed enjoyable for most here (you know at a freakin' headphone forum) to discuss said sound. So what if folks throw out some ideas on the final design? If even one positive suggestion can be incorporated before the release date then this has been a win win for everyone.

In essence, chill out, if you don't like the conversation, don't read the thread.

Wow, I guess his caffeine is REALLY kickin' in!!! Bahah... Umm.. I believe somewhere in your "tirade" you mentioned the word "forum" .. so, yes I am FREE to post my OPINION in a FORUM like anyone else, unless this website isn't hosted with the 50 united states I think my fist amendment rights are still available to me here??? I wasn't BASHING anyone or anything, just merely stating a fact.. about how speculation fuels a bunch of frenzy to acquire an item that, with all do respect and ignorance on my part, isn't going to be setting the world on fire! So maybe we all just need to chill.. and enjoy what we DO have in our possession?

It's all good... My post wasn't meant to offend, BUT give another perspective... no?
post #159 of 2524
You have no first amendment rights. This is not a publically funded forum. This is a private enterprise. You check your first amendment rights at the door sir. This is a horrible misconception.

That said the moderating staff isn't about draconian methods of submission. Most of the time, folks are free to post what they want to post, provided it falls within the TOS that everyone agrees to when they sign up for the site.

Had I wanted to commit an act of oppression I would have deleted your post. Instead I commented on your comment. You made the insulting *yawn* indicating you were somehow more informed or above those posting. Anything that followed this yawn therefore must be more important and taken as fact above all else.

Second, you insult those that are excited and again insult those that already own gear and then you go on to allude to some clandestine malicious marketing by the OP.

This is a paid thread, and folks commenting have heard the phones. The only misinformed comment is your own and I'm calling you on it.

I'm glad you didn't mean to offend, but the way it was presented means it read that way and honestly, without clarification, how could anyone read it otherwise? Sure provide another perspective, but do so wording it properly. The way you worded your post, it came off trolling.

I agreed with you on the amplification forum... but I disagree with you about YOUR preconceived notion that I intended to BASH or INSULT anyone with my *yawn*... that (and here's where electronic media fails us every time) was more or less a statement of "Not again.." You very eloquently made a statement on the other forum about "riding the hype train"... well, from the looks of it... the "hype train" was about to pull into this forum... There's a fine line between what I hope to see, and "hyping and item up"... I admitted in my original post that I did NOT hear this IEM, more than likely I will once it's made available.. but, my message was a more or less let's not lose our heads over something (which a majority of people tend to do...I highly doubt every poster here has heard those IEMs except me) still in "prototype" stage and will be so until it's on the shelves available to be purchased.

And yes, I do believe that there is a level of "marketing" that goes on... when you think about it, what do IEM or any manufacture REALLY care about??? We all need to eat and keep our car payment up no? It would be totally naive to think that producing "profits" via viral marketing or whatever you want to call it doesn't exist! This is a capitalist society

Look at ALL of my threads in total (200+ posts, low number yes) and I'm a "troll".. don't think so.

And, I was kidding about the "amendment line"... It's a website, I could be booted within the next 5 mins. and?? the only saving grace would probably be my wallet gaining some weight, as I, in the past have jumped aboard that hype train.

look, this thread is a SPONSORED thread by westone to market their new product. it's designed partially to inform, partially to get some feedback, and partially to get people interested. so what's the big deal? that's what marketing is for.

for someone who hasn't even heard it yet, how can you be so certain about what it is and what it isn't? and why the need to rain on someone else's parade?

this is not to say that the thread must be all positive...i've heard the 3 and really like it...but i've heard other westone products that i haven't liked, such as the UM2. my post above was meant to be instructive to other people who are interested in the 3 but haven't yet had a chance to listen to them, so i provide a reference comparing the 3 to the UM2. i think what zanth is saying is that your post really does nothing to inform others...and while your post may not be intentionally malicious, it's not particularly helpful or informative...
post #162 of 2524
Haha.. I'm NOT raining on anyone's parade... did you hear me say "DONT BUY THE PRODUCT!!!!!" ???? umm.. no.

I NEVER said there's anything wrong with marketing, heck if the place where I worked didn't market, I'd be out of a job.... so nothing bad there...

for the last time, I just said "Hey guys, let's keep a level head about this", you never know, it's still a prototype, it may change for the better\worse\or not at all by final production time.. sooooooo... let's all chill... But, you know what... I see my words our landing on deaf ears (really need to turn the volume down on those amps!).. so.. with that... I'm done!

Have fun! Oh Oh is that sunshine coming back out??...

oh my bad...you weren't raining on the parade...you were "putting a damper on the party." my mistake for choosing the wrong metaphor.

and you certainly did imply that there's something wrong with marketing - that they're only in it to pad their bottom lines and prey on the poor newbies. which is highly insulting, IMO. if that's how you say, "let's keep a level head," then i'd hate to hear how you really criticize someone...oh, if you forgot what you really said, here it is:

oh, and a certain morph201 started this thread on the westone 3...why? http://www.head-fi.org/forums/showthread.php?t=217512
post #164 of 2524
Morph... When I had my thread about Westone UM2 or Shure E500, you were constantly telling me how great the IEM was. I think you are overly obsessed with your Shure E500. If you don't like it, then go away! No one is telling you to be looking at this thread. People have different tastes, some like Shure, others like Westone. It sounds like you are saying "DONT BUY THIS PRODUCT!" and buy the E500. You haven't heard of the prototype at all so you can't make a judgment about a product. If people like the prototype Westone 3's, then let them rave about it! (Quote: Morph201) "I HIGHLY doubt it's going to be a WOW experience..." Does that not sound like you are doubting a product before you've even heard it? Seriously, don't say or doubt anything before you've tried it. I had to get THAT off MY chest.

*sigh* .. do you feel better now Chickengod?? Do ya? Need a hug now? Ummm.. Let's do a HISTORY check and see who it was that posted the first inquiry about the 3's on the headphone forum...ummm.. yeah, that would be ME!

I am not obsessed with Shures... Hell when I get me bonus check I just might blow it on ES2's or UE-5s.... so now how do you feel about me brand loyalty??

I'm no fan-boy.. Just call 'em like I see 'em!

Go for it! I got the flame-proof suit on! Bullet proof baby! take ya best shot!!
Haha... Seriously, it aint that bad... There are really more pressing issues in life then which IEM rox da box ya know.... Can we chill now? huh?
