Westone UM3X announced! - Page 35

post #511 of 557
I just bought it today. Sound very good with my um56. In fact, i'll say it the best universal I heard to date and rival those customs I listen before. Includes tf10p, w3, se530, ck100, ie8 and ue11p, ue10p, acs t1, es2

Quick question. The impedence on these is listed as 56 ohms. It seems like with that high of an impedence, an amp would be a necessity. Do these work unamped, at a usable volume? I'd like to use them on a Creative Zen 16GB.

I'm also anxious to hear the review.

Thanks.

The most important question is: Can you tell what the difference is between the Westone 3 and the UM3X? (sound quality wise)

yes. total different in sound signature. While w3 is very thick in the mids, um3x is much more like se530 in a way. I love the way it sounds. Wide open and inviting. Added the much need sparkle that se530 lack. but not to the extend of tf10p. I just thought i end my portable journey with T1 but um3x force me to open my wallet once more.

Before um3x appear, I'll say ck100 and se530 will be my preference for universal IEM. what um3x does better is in the bass and sound depth. bass is more detail and hit harder. mid wise, ck100 is still more forward but similar in warm.

how do they compare to the acs t1? I have the t1s too, but the um3x looks awfully tempting.

That's bad. Very bad. The only thing make me wanting from CK100 is more bass lol. But UM2 irritating fit still haunting me...

Both is similar in LR panning. but um3x seems to have a tat more depth. Bass on um3x hits harder and louder. Mid wise, both are different. same similar level of details but um3x sound clearer. highs, t1 sound a tat louder but um3x sound more extended. Basically, the main different is in the mid.

Than either you go um56 or ES3x, else stay with ck100.

All my finding is base on um3x with um56 hence I do not know how universal ear sleeves will fare
