Westone 3 Impressions Thread - Page 124

When describing the 3's as fun, what does that mean?

I own the W4R's and the W3's - I much prefer the 4's - mostly because they are more musical and accurate to my ears. I could live with the 3's, but the seem more veiled with bass than the 4's - and the soundstage if the 4's seems larger.

I want to love the 3's - but the 4's are just right for everything I listen to.

Purposely not accurate.  Usually artificially boosted bass and treble to give it more slam and excitement at the expense of it not being accurate or balanced.

 

Many people love W3 for certain kinds of music.  It is rare for any IEM to have such big bass but with decent crispness and clarity.

Just curious, how do the W3 compare to your JH5 and your previous JH16? I would think the W3 has similar attributes to those two CIEMs

Most people say 4's are more analytical and 3' are more musical.

I find the 4R's to be musical. DR1350's are what I would consider analytical.

I do like the W3's the more I listen to them.

Did I get ripped off by Amazon? I don't have triple flange tips, and don't have nearly as many tips as the reviews showed in pictures. There was a little baggie in the case with about 6 sets up tips in it. Is that about right?

I know that they come with a little baggie 

You shouldve gotten something like this:

or like this:

Notice the different set of tips with the 2nd picture being the newer version with their own tips., either way you should have gotten the triple flange.

My W3 was packed with an assortment of 10 tips none of which were tri-flanges . B.F. purchase thru AMZ .

 

- Loving the complys !

did they come with the tru fit and star silicone?

post #1856 of 2126

I got mine through Amazon, and it didn't have the tri-flanges either

post #1857 of 2126

hmm that is weird because they are pictured per the w4r they did away with the triple flange and did only the star and tru fit, maybe they did the same with the w3?

post #1858 of 2126
It's a Christmas gift, so I'm going from memory, but I believe I got 2 sets of the silicone type and 4 sets of the foam type.
