well, i came back to this thread after a long absence because i was thinking of having my um3x's costomized and modded.
These latest posts are a bit concerning though.
UM re did my tf10's to 6 drivers, i love them and quality is excellent, so with that in mind i think ill go ahead anyway, don't really mind waiting as i never use my westones anymore anyway (6 driver TF10's kinda rendered them obsolete ).
I am thinking of getting the 8 driver upgrade to my umx3's, since i already have a 6 driver custom, why not go big on the next pair .
I am wondering what the configuration is on the 8 driver mod? how many drivers dedicated to lows, mids, highs? what is the cross over configuration?
Most importantly, anyone out there who has done this upgrade, does the sound justify the price? What i mean by that is are the 8 driver umx3's up there with other top tier customs, at $800.00 for the uppgrade + the initial cost of the iems, the total investment is right up there with the miracles and others. or would i be better off to sell them as is and just buy a flagship set from UM or UE or JH etc? I know some of the other top tier customs are in the $1600.00 range so the miracles or re-shelled customs are still a lot easier on the wallet.
