New WESTONE W-SERIES - Page 30

post #436 of 1134

Another delay and no date yet, cancel?

post #437 of 1134

I am on the fence.  Earphone solutions has been an impressive vendor to work with and if it were not for them I would cancel.  I have not decided but I guess I have a couple weeks to make up my mind.  It looks like my original guess of June was pretty close after all.

 

Seriously though, check out the 846 if you have not already.  You might be able to get earphone solutions to let you demo for a week or so during the wait.

The problem is that JH is going to OEM for AK and release their universal Roxanne as the new AKR03, which will sure be much more impressive then the W60 and its like $300 more I think.

 

Update: I just emailed Earphone Solutions to cancelled my pre-order and put the money for the AKR03 instead.

Got an update from Earphone Solutions, and the reason for the delay was due to an unspecified language problem on the box for the US market.  Also, they will have the JH Universal Roxanne with the balance cable (same as AKR03) in June.  I am changing my pre-order to the JH.  Sorry guys.

Still nobody's heard the W30? :(

my FiiO wire is starting to fall apart. I just got these a little over a month ago. How is FiiO warranty service, it seems like they are based out of China. How would a replacement work?

I'd go through the dealer.

I think he really wanted to know your impressions of it, and not just that you've heard it.

What was it like? Anything you could compare it to? W3 or TF10 perhaps?

I briefly compared it with W3, both using the M-size star tips.

 

I find the W30 to be a little fuller sounding. Also, the fit/comfort is better due to the new housing.

 

The rest are mostly the same.

 

Can't comment on TF10.

By fuller I hope you mean fuller mids...if the bass gained any fullness over W3 I think the IEMs might spontaneously combust XD

After about three months, the shielding on the braided Epic cable that came with my W40 is starting to come off around the ear area. Westone said that Amazon, the place I purchased them, is not an authorized reseller, and I'm not covered under warranty. Super lame, Westone. :(

Amazon isn't an authorized reseller? Have they gone nuts?

I have been lusting after the W30 but I've heard enough negatives about Westone lately that I'm rethinking my decision...nothing wrong with my TF10...
