Do you plan to do anything about it? It's not that bad, but definitely noticeable for me.

Nah. Either I just ignore it or pull the right tip slightly further out of my right ear until I hear it's centered.

Pulled the trigger thirty seconds ago. Resistance was futile! Can't wait to hear them in action! Sorry about my wallet!

quick newbie comments

Got mine today. Only listened for a little so have to reserve ultimate opinion after more usage. But quickly here are some comments:

My custom tips for Ec4 fit perfectly.... but foams sound better. lol
They are a little tough to learn how to fit correctly or maybe im a spaz
Wonderfully light
Great low profile design...very err "sleek" (pun intended)

Overall, i would characterize them as warmly balanced analogue. Eg they are tubelike and less digital then the vmodas or Ec4s.....

search for 'UM3' on taobao, you will get 1 or 2 sellers who sell them for 1980

hehehe I can do a 3 way comparison between the 3 triple driver cans I have had and may be that will give some good insights unless someone has compared the 3 yet?

I would love to see what you have to say comparing the W3 to the Shures. Looking for someone to be honest with none of the usual "The W3 sounds wonderful like angels licking your eardrums" type of stuff.

Ow I am going to be brutally honest I always am. i don't b.s myself into think this new can is better because I just got it and all that whatnot if I don't think they are the best they are going to get returned since 3 cans are too many for me to have and won't get properly used

Cool. I really love my Shures but am looking for another pair to use with an amp. hope you get them soon.
post #853 of 2145
Yep personally with a good amp I prefer my tf10's to my shures but hopefully the westone 3 will be my ultimate semi-universal iem that has some real neutrality and balance though my tf10's are very balanced in my configuration also.

Man... these sound so good! Playing Daft Punk's Aerodynamic ...

And I thought I was going to sell them

the one thing i am unsure of with these thin voice canals is how long lasting they can be whilst that thin. i worried every time i took my sleeves from the um2 and the e500 and then the sa6 (on sale by the way) and these look no different. my audio technica ck10 have the same thin voice tube but it is surrounded in a sturdy plastic arm that fits the likes of sony's silicon tips.
