I believe the cable type is the only difference...

it should be same,maybe some tweaking to reduce metallic treble.

in any case xba series are risky as opinions wary in both the extremes

Wrong, the cable types are different:

XBA 3sl - j-cable

XBA 3/30 - y-cable

 

Other than that, the difference in tweaks/dampening are almost negligible.

Hey guys.

How would you compare XBA-30 to Westone 3 as all rounder? 

Sources : laptop at work (looking to buy a  Dragonfly or other DAC/amp) or Nexus 5 on the go.

Music types : rock, OST, ambient, edm

Looking for non-fatiguing sound  for  longer listening sessions.
