Hi-end universal IEMs from Triple.Fis - Page 2

post #16 of 18

If you can make peace with amping, the mids on the RE262 are amazing - very musical. I haven't made up my mind yet about the FAD Heaven IV - still burning in my ears to them. The mids are fascinating and the bass is quite good for a single-BA.

Check my sig of IEM's I have ever had and while W3 is still my favorite universal, UM3X is BY FAR the most refined sounding IEM I have ever heard, period....and this is after owning JH5, 13 and 16.

 

It has the most extension with the most smoothness of any universal IEM I have ever put in my ears.  I just prefer the added color and extension of W3. 

 

That's high praise for the UM3X. I rarely use the EQ, but if the UM3X is that much better, then I might have to go with them. I'm probably not replacing my TF10s though... listening to them again and I still love them, maybe I'll add something new. The UM3X seems to be a different sound sig and I can justify purchasing that biggrin.gif

 

As for the RE262, it's unfortunately that they need an amp. Sounds like the sound is great, but I hate carrying an amp with me and I ended up rarely using the portable I had (Leckerton UHA-4).

TF10 might sound more vibrant and a bit more fun but UM3X is surely technically superior.  Westone did an incredible job with it designing exactly what they wanted to do with it and hitting the nail on the head 100%.
