Westone 3 Impressions Thread - Page 142

post #2116 of 2144

Well, my IE8s had better bass. But traded them for the Westone 3 and I'm not dissapointed

post #2117 of 2144

Any recommendations on Comply tips for the W3 guys? 

 

Been using the silicone tips and they work great, but isolate maybe only 75-80% of all sound.

I didn't like complys on my W4s.  I am a fan of the Westone Tru-fit tips.  They seem to isolate more for me.

P-series complys.  The best!

I've only tried the Tx(those short ones), didn't seal as well as Westone's or Shure's foam tips.

 

Westone's foam tips just isn't as comfortable as Shure's.

 

ymmv though.

Lucky you! I did not get one single offer when I wanted to trade my pair of IE8s for Westies....

Not even a fair fight anymore.  W30 in a landslide.  2 main things are the W30 midrange is outstanding versus recessed with W3.   Bass on W3 has a lot of bloat with a mid-bass emphasis.  W30 bass is perfectly balanced and plentiful.

 

Total no brainer....

I was thinking the same thing when I tried these on! Tremendous improvement in all aspects accept maybe the look is less sleek. But who cares! So much color! Haha! So glad they gave me these and a HUGE thumbs up to Westone for fantastic customer service

My W3 's right unit works only when the cable is at a certain angle. 

It is still under warranty but I know that W3 has been discontinued.

Would westone return W30 as replacement? Anyone have experience in this situation?

You should get a w30 as a replacement, I've just sent mine in for a cracked shell.

Thank you very much

The cable is quite fragile and being able to replace the cable myself is much appreciated.

I've found that the W3 cable leaves a lot to be desired. It failed twice on me in 12 months of moderate use.
