Westone UM3X or Westone 4 or Shure SE535 ?? - Page 10

post #136 of 244

Are the comply tips all mediums that come with the W4?  I can't seem to get any of them to expand enough to seal out noise/not sound hollow so I think I might need large but wanted to verify first.  Some people have said the W4 isn't as much about fit but personally, I think it is.  There is a sweet spot I can obtain when I put them in just right.  I haven't quite figured out how to get to that from the start so I need to keep trying.

Comply are all generic in their own models. There isn't really sizes. There isn't different sizes because they all can be compressed.

Umm, you're not helping with such comments... blink.gif

All series except Ts come in 3 sizes, and it does make a difference.

 

Chose too small, and you won't get a proper seal / lose half of the bass.

Chose too big, and you'll have to compress them so much that comfort will be reduced and longevity of the tips will go down.

 

And to answer Vocalist's question, yes Westone IEMs are usually delivered with medium size.

You can buy some large's off of ebay for super duper cheap.  The p-series should definitely seal up.  Those things touch your brain they go so deep...

I interpreted it wrongly. Sorry for the misconception.

I sense a level of Fake Shure and Comply foamies.  Shenanigans have been called.

I haven't read through the thread.

But I would go for PFE232's over the SE535's - unless u want a mid-forward presentation...

 

Can't comment on the W3 or 4's though.

You can believe that but from my experience with them they are real. Maybe in your neck of the woods they do not stock them but in the high end stores in Hong Kong they do.

So you already got the PFE232? Cool! How did you find the bass? I found it plenty, and also wished the highs had more extension.

The gray flex aren't olives, they are silicon. Only the black foam tips are. The orange one is just normal foam :O, so probably you didn't phrase your sentence accurately.
