Quite new, he had them for 3 months and then got the W4 as a graduation gift. So I believe that they are in good condition.

Hey what do you guys think about the UM3x vs the W3 as on earphone solutions the W3 is $350 or $30 more then the current price of the UM3x offered to me? Better or worse when it comes to Rock music and casual listening, EG: not using them live on stage primary use at home, or during travel. So they must be quite noise isolating.

Some may disagree but I don't really care for the W3's over the top mid bass.  Frankly it's a cannon.  It sure gives you the wow factor though and can do rock-n-roll right, if you don't find offense to the mid bass.  I'm a UM3X guy though.

 

If you want to consider something completely different and for less money, the Vsonic GR07 is an awesome guitar driven rock earphone choice. It's only $160.  It doesn't have the instrument separation the Westones do but it has really good distortion guitar crunch and drums sound pretty darn good too.  However it has a good bit more upper end presence over the Westones, which are very non-fatiguing.  Anyway, I like the UM3X better but the GR07 is a lot better than a sub $200 earphone has a right to be.  It's a head-fi mainstay and one of the most recommended.  Here is a link to an authorized dealer on ebay:

The UM3X is more expensive than the W3. I think the W3 can be quite good for rock, with its v-shaped frequency.
