Yeah ofc, I was a bit mean too but the products will be quite different in terms of market target for what I have read so merging the threads although causing some confusion on the readers, but it can possibly work :smile:

well they are releasing 2 completely new lines, maybe to replace the old universal fit and um lines??

There was a comment asking about the tuning for the new UMPro 30 on Westone's Facebook page and Westone replied that the tuning will be "more refined" than the UM3X. That's about all I've seen addressing anything about the tuning on the new (refreshed) lines.
