have yet to find anything wrong with them...
looking forward to taking them to gym today .............
I'm very happy i bought W3's and will be extremely happy if they last me a couple of years.. which i think they will because of the top-notch build quality (Specially the Cable!)
I've been reading all your comments about the performances of the W3s with Heavy Rock music and I don't want to say that I agree or disagree with the negative feedbacks but at the same time, I would not be honest to say that they are flawless with all the albums below.
Just to make it clear with everybody, here's what I have on my iPod right now :
1- Dream Theater - Scenes From A Memory
2- Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos
3- Opeth - Watershed
4- Opeth - Damnation
5- Riverside - Second Life Syndrome
6- Porcupine Tree - In Absentia
7- Porcupine Tree - Fear Of A Blank Planet
8- Steven Wilson - Insurgentes
9- Rush - Test For Echo
10- Cynic - Traced In Air
11- Enslaved - Vertebrae
12- Liquid Tension Experiment
13- Fates Warning - FWX
14- Mars Volta - Frances The Mute
15- Agalloch - The White EP
16- Pink Floyd - The Wall
17- Radiohead - OK Computer
18- Marillion - Happiness Is The Road
19- Daylight Dies - Lost To The Living
20- Epica - The Divine Conspiracy
Heavy enough ?
W3's are Brilliant and anyone who would dis-agree either has not listened to them or is not truely listening to them or has another motive.
I.E - A Internet shop with a huge stock of 'other' brand IEM ;-)
Not that I'm saying other IEM are not as equally good or possible even better but alot of people who'm are lucky enough to have been able to afford alot of IEM say w3's are the best they have heard.
And they sound so well balanced the only way I could hear my dance music better is if I was surrounded by a group of pro-drummers.
Preferably naked women drummers
Not heavy enough for me. You posted some progressive rock classics but they are not something I would consider heavy or hard. Think Slayer, Dimmu Borgir, Celtic Frost, Killswitch Engage, Slipknot, Sepultura, etc.
I have a lot of the albums posted and they are very good but I am a bit more varied in my tastes. So far it seems that the W3 does NOT excel at fast paced, hard and heavy music.
I have not heard the W3 yet so I am going by what I am reading.
