Will This Be Called The Westone "Epic" Tip? - Page 3

post #31 of 204

Finally, a Comply replacement. Subbed to this thread - will order these the moment they are for sale!

The biggest change is with the W3. On top of what I stated above, there is more noticeable forward mids and less midbass but bass impact remains the same.

 

Interestingly, this is how I typically describe the improvements I get using my UM56 custom tips with the W4 and W3.

This would be perfect...I love my W3 with Comply P, but always feel that it needs a tad more sparkle and brightness, will definitely buy too as soon as it is made available

I found them amongst my accessories in my new Eestone 4, but, to be honest, I don't think they are anything special. They are not particularly confortable, they are just a variation (in size) of the normal silicone tips. In my opinion the Comply foams are still the way to go

Any foam tip (comply) stifles the treble somewhat which W4 does NOT need.  That's the key thing

+1 Complys are really comfy but it does stifle the trebles

I use the Comply TX-100s on my UM2s... Hoping my new W4Rs come with these. Do people use wax guards with these other tips? The TX-100s have built in wax guards.

So do we have name yet?

I was hoping I'd receive the new tips with my UM2's (from Earphone Solutions) that came today.....but sadly no. frown.gif I'd noticed that they had been shown on the Westone online store as having the new style tips already installed.

 

On a side note, really loving the sound from them. Exactly what I was hoping for coming from the UM1, fuller sound in general. Now to try them out with those new fancy tips! Anyone have any small or mediums they'd be willing to part with? I've got plenty of a variety of different larger tips I would trade for.

I didn't get the new tips with my recent(last week) W4 purchase from earphone solutions.

I emailed Westone customer support about these tips and was told they would be officially available around the first of the year. And the estimated retail price will be $14.99 for a 10 pack (5 pair) and there will be 5 sizes available: small short, small long, medium short, medium long, and large.

Do the cores of these stretch at all (to fit onto wider nozzles) or are they pretty rigid?

No,not at all.  Made for Westone only.  Might fit Shure and Etymotic as well.

Opened my W4Rs today that I ordered over Thanksgiving weekend and they came with the new tips!  I just called customer service to ask a few questions and she confirmed that they designed the tips, but partnered with someone else to make them.  As someone else mentioned, she said that they will be for sale early next year directly from them.
