Hopefully yes, however H-100 already has some of the nicest bass texture I have heard and that includes W3, not so much more in quantity it has less mid bass but better quality
bass. Plus H-100 has much better extension on the highs and detail... more or less bass and treble focused (a U shape sig). Still for EDM It absolutely screams crispness and clarity, where as the W3 I find a little warm, bloated compared.
It really depends what you're after if you like warmth W3 is a good choice however I prefer something transparent for EDM something that allows you to hear all the samples when songs move at speed. something crisper, however can sound a touch thin compared to warmth / thickness.
Soundstage W3 has the advantage, imaging takes advantage of the larger headstage. H-100 has decent width in soundstage, solid imaging, doesn't do much wrong really, just the mid range can be a little weak in vocals, like the lower mids are absent a touch, that's what we're hoping is cured with H-200. I still use H-100 for every genre and find them much more versatile than some other IEM's I've owned.Edited by H20Fidelity - 1/22/13 at 8:39pm
