Are you referring to me? If so no my westone 3's were reshelled as ciem's they're displayed on my avatar.

Ah OK...hmmm...I may still be interested, I've never had customs before but i like what you're saying about your W3 reshelled, that's exactly how I would have changed them from what I heard. Let me know when you're ready.

No problem I'll make sure to pm you when I receive my jh16's and trust me your going to love how the westone 3's sound as a ciem.

I'm looking forward to it...I remember the W3 had great clean, dry mids and I'm curious to see how they perform without excess bass getting in the way.

I really like my Westone 3 - but it is one of the only Shure/Westone shaped IEMs that fit me well and seal completely with the included foamies - I don't think I will be making a custom out of it - detachable cables would be nice, but not a deal breaker.


Just send em into btg-audio to have the cable mod done when your ready :P

I thought you were going get by the W30.

Might not have to...if I can spend half the price and still get what I want, there's no sense in waiting. That's my logic, anyways.

Based on reviews and the threads on W3 vs W4, W3 tends to have a little bit more bass then the W4, is that correct? Can I assume that W30 would have more bass than W40?

post #2065 of 2224
Given that the w40 has more bass than the w4, and that nobody has heard the w30, it's impossible to know.

Yes the w3 have more bass then the w4 but as for the w40 I couldn't tell you because the drivers are tuned differently this time around.

Were the w30 ever put on sale? I checked Earphone Solutions and it says the w30 should of shipped by Feb, shouldn't some people already have them for reviews.

One would think...yet the W30s aren't listed on Westone's website, so who knows. I actually contacted them about a review sample but never heard back. Not sure what their plans are...

I guess I might end up buying the W40.

As far a I am concerned the W40 has made the W3 and Pro30/UM3X obsolete. Its that same upper mid tier level IEM but fixes faults of both.
I have not heard the W30 but I would advise people if you can afford the extra $100 DO NOT but the Pro30. The W40 fixes it faults. Its a great product!
