What are the best tips for Westone UM3x

post #1 of 7

Hi everyone smily_headphones1.gif

I own some Westone UM3x earphones which I've been using every day for three years. They're just about perfect with the Comply foam tips that I've always used but I fancy a change and was wondering what alternatives are available?

Both foam and rubber tip options would be considered.

I just bought the UM30 Pros -- and use the True-Fit tips (I use the blue ones) --- I like them a lot more than the Comply's. The foam seems sturdier -- and the tip doesn't collapse when I put them in my ears (the Comply's will do that and I have to sort of adjust them to get a nice flow of sound going)... I haven't found a down side to the True-Fit's yet...

The nice thing about the Westones is that they will take a large variety of tips. IEM tips are an incredibly personal choice. Some people love triple flange tips, others absolutely hate them. I prefer foam tips, with the Comply and the Shure black foam being my two favorites.

Have you thought about Custom tips or adapters that would fit onto your UM earphones?

 

I use Westone's UM56 adapters with my Adventure Series:

Hmmm, I hadn't considered those before. Do you know how much they cost?
