Alternating between W3 "gold" edition and JH5 which still remain my two favorites after many years in the $300-$300 range.

Um3 is bass heavy. Intentionally. It's a stage monitor.

The UM3X is easy to drive. And it works very well with any DAP. The sound quality will depend only on the source.

 
To me, this headphone is the best.

Yes

 

Opening up the shell to "do something to it's [in the case of the UM3x non-existent] diaphram" will achieve nothing other than invalidating you warranty and most likely damaging the earphones in the process.


 Just making some littles holes in the shell ! (kind of vent) Never tried!

The wider the soundstage, the easier it is to tell apart the instruments and notes in a song. That being said, not all music needs a wide soundstage; electronica for one thing doesn't really need a wide soundstage whereas orchestral music would benefit the most.

hope that helps

The other sense of soundstage is "space".  Two extremes would be where the music sounds directly wired to your brain or just outside your head versus sitting in a larger 40 ft x 40 ft room or 10 rows back hearing the music.  While UM3X has excellent instrument separation it lacks this sense of space.

With my Colorfly CK4+ i've got very good soundstage on a lot of tracks. My source gives me a good space. With Teclast X19, iPhone, CD player i've got not big soundstage but better feeling of space between instruments. Just feeling (like a touching), with CK4+ they are on the same level. Respect to my player:)

I also like how you can be a bit reckless with the cord and not have to worry about it breaking :)

 



your brain also needs to get used to... ;-)
