side by side pic of Shure SE530 and Westone 3

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Anyone ever see a pic that of these two next to each other? I'm wondering if the Westone 3 is bigger. I find the SE530 fairly large already...

I had E500s a while back, the W3 is significantly narrower.

Thanks, Pony. Good to know. Do you find the shorter tip tube an issue?

Yes I do. I keep switching tips trying to find a better fit/sound. To me, the medium Shure olives are too short. I cut the tri-flange to a single flange, but find it is a bit too big and uncomfortable. I'm currently trying out the medium clear silicon tips.

Can we see pics of them in the ear (westone 3's) also, I'd be interested to see how flush these appear. - Thanks.

Thanks - they seem to fit in the ear quite well (could do with a front view so-to-speak i.e. person facing the camera - shot with Shure's in ear then another with the Westone's in...)

Appreciate the link though.

I have both here in my office and the W3 is smaller than the SE530. They are close, but the W3 is a little smaller.

Ever since the incident, my wife doesn't let me post pictures of myself on the web.

Just to clarify, you mean the W3's tips (the part the foamies or flanges slide over) are too short right?
I noticed that they seem shorter than the Shures...
