Westone UM3X Thread - Page 284

post #4246 of 4359

I just got a second hand UM3X for $180 USD :D so happy with it.

 

Got question, i just realize that for non RC, they didnt give the plastic hook that help the cable not fall off from our ear.

 

Do you guys know how to get it? what does it call too...i try to google but dunno what is the word for it

Non RC is a completely different cable and strain relief system.  Since it is affixed directly into the housing I know of no way to modify it.

So there's no way we put the plastic to hook the cable on our ear?

Hello Forum,

 

I've had the UM3X for 5+ years and really like the sound signature and comfort., recently the cable started to fail, on/off either earpiece. So I contacted Westone for a repair, I'm still waiting for a reply. But they already wrote about a replacement. I don't want any replacement and don't see any major issue in exchanging the cables or even the housing for the newer one with detachable cables.

 

Any one here has had a similar experience? and if so, is there other places where they can do the repair if Westone goes for the exchange policy?

 

Thank you

I guess yours is non RC version, if you are going to replace the cable then might be look for reshell options too.
I think someone in here added shure plugs to westone3, might be possible with UM3x.

Is there any iem out there that has an even more forwards midrange than the um3x?

I got my um3x rc blue ltd for $150 AUD :wink_face: 

post #4254 of 4359

I purchased a used pair of um3x rc blue a few years ago without the box and accessories.  

 

However I just realised westone also released the um2 rc in blue which looks identical to the um3x rc.

 

I've tried to located the 3 drivers but can only see two because of the semi transparent blue housing.

 

Which position should the 3rd driver be located.

 

I think the bottom driver may actually two but drivers but placed together which would be 3 but not very certain at all. 

 

Here are a few close up pic of the drivers. 

 

.

 

 

 

And of the um2 taken off the internet, not mine

What do you mean by physical driver?

So mine has 3 drivers altogether, one big (physical) and a small dual driver?

This picture represents is a three way system with two physical drivers - there is one big unit with a single driver, and the other unit has two drivers in it.

Lol :beyersmile:

But I can still see Spotty and a normal calf configuration in the um2. 

post #4259 of 4359

Yes, the UM2 is more similar to Spotty and her first, less freakish, offspring.:D

post #4260 of 4359

This is dual driver in W3, UM3 and W4 for highs.
