Is the jack and case of the Westone 3 supposed to be different?? My westone 3 are identical to yours. I don't understand what the problem is?

AFAIK, there is no pirated / cloned / fake W3 (or any Westone in that matter) in the market.

It is probably just Westone updating their cable design.

The W1,W2, and W3 all come with the same accessories including the case and the cable. So the only way to tell if it is a 'W1' painted as a W3 would be to listen to it.
