If I liked my UM2?? Should I go UM3x or Westone 3

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was just looking at the westone website, and they have westone 3 listed under personal use, and the UM2 and UM3x under pro.  I am just wondering is the signature of the UM2 closer to the UM3x or Westone 3? or would it be closer to a SM3

You will probably feel more at home with the um3x than the W3. They have completely different sound signature the former having more forward mids, slightly roll-off highs and better instrument separation and the latter having more bass impact and bigger soundstage.

The W3 also tends to get strident/sibilant with some recordings. Go for the UM3X instead.
