Westone UM3X announced! - Page 34

post #496 of 557
Well, I decided to get next day for a few reasons:

1. I'll be one of the first people to have it so I can benefit people with a review and feel special

2. My IE8 is being repaired so I don't have a top tier IEM available for use ATM.

3. I will be leaving school very soon since my last day of classes is friday

4. To celebrate the official end of school and start of Summer!

5. I also can't get packages on the weekends because all our packages go to our housing office and our office is closed on Saturday/Sunday.

Mine shipped as well. I am thinking of using the modified triple flange which i used with um2 and see how it sounds. Any advice on tips. I don't like the foam tips. Has anyone used the grey ones from shure ( not sure of they are called olives)

The black foamies are called olives, and should work well but I have heard of some issues with them being hard to remove from the nozzle. Supposedly any tips from the Shure SE line will work with the W3's.

I've never used a Westone product so I'm not sure what tips may work the best but possible Sony Hybrid Tips as well, as it seems like those may be a good size but I'm not positive. I can confirm it tomorrow maybe.

Sony Hybrid Tips wont work unless u modded it. It's differently sized, used generally for UE, Senn, Sony, NuForce, etc

Oh they're too big? Hmm I wasn't sure because they're extremely snug (too much imo) on the my IE8's.

Zalithian - Those are all good reasons...I don't blame you. They say mine shipped today as well but I don't expect to have it until Monday so I'll be posting my comments Tuesday.

Oooh 30th April Can't wait to see some reviews and some unboxing photos of them.

I will certainly be spending the whole day tomorrow with them. Not sure the pictures will be great coming from my cell phone but hey, better than nothing.

So, I take it you primarily did it for humanitarian reasons?

I just received an email from freqcitysound.com that they are offering a few hundred pairs at a special price. If anyone is intrested, PM me your email and I will forward you a copy.

My pair is around 15 minutes away. Hopefully it will be delivered by 11 AM EST.

That is correct. The sound tube on the Hybrids is an in-between size, can be stuffed on the Seens or NuForce, but too big for the Westone nozzle (at least the W3).

Delivered, walking up the hill to pick it up. Making a new thread and posting pics soon.
